good overall machine with the features we were looking for
8 October 2012
Summary: Bought this printer to replace identical one. My wife really like the printer , but it got to the point where about 1/2 the time it wouldn't print , No error messages , just wouldn't print , she liked the dual feed feature the most with scrap in 1 tray and good in the other and a simple button to pick from , Print quality is very good, they don't make this anymore thus why we looked on E bay.
Excerpt: We've had this printer for about five years, and have to say that it hasn't disappointed us. We use it nearly every day, printing out everything from text to coupons to pictures. It is very user-friendly, which is good because we are somewhat technologically-challenged. For home users like us, the fact that it is a scanner/printer/fax machine is great! It was easy to set up and we especially like that it is compact. It fits in our home office very well.
Fast, great quality-everything I need and copies are easy!

Excerpt: Ink prices are high, like all these units, but otherwise it is fast, and good quality. I use this mostly for black and white word processing, but I wanted something to add photos to documents. This does the trick. The printer is extremely easy to install and use with my laptop. No USB cable included, but I use the one from another peripheral.
Excerpt: I bought the Canan Inkjet MP530 a couple of years ago and it has served me well. It just recently stopped working with some issue related to the black ink, but because I've had it a while i've been pretty forgiving. i've never had any other problem with it and it scans pictures beautifully. It's affordable, quick and easy to use. Nothing particularly amazing about it, but I definitely have no regrets.
Excerpt: We bought a Canon MP530 Printer a couple of years ago and its still running strong.You can copy in black and white or color. Never any problems with putting the paper in and it does really nice pics on photo paper too. The only con I have about it is that its large and heavy other than that.It's a really nice printer.
My Canon Pixma MP530 can be slow, but is reliable & versatile.

Excerpt: I wanted an all-in-one printer and I got a very good one with this MP530 -- it's relatively easy to use, has most of the functions of a real copier, and allows me to scan easily and print relatively quickly (at least on fast mode.) It can be a little slow on top quality, and the whole thing won't work if one color ink is out (which is a pain if I just want to print black and white handouts for school and it won't let me because I'm out of cyan!
Excerpt: I looked everywhere for a good printer before deciding on a canon pixma. Aside from the expensive ink... this is an amazing printer. The photos are awesome quality. A big plus is the bluetooth capability. Wireless printing = happiness. I've had countless printers in the past that just didn't hold up to my work load. I'm a photographer, so I'm always printing for my business. This printer has made my life so much easier.
Excerpt: The Canon Pixma MP530 All-in One-Printer is a good printer and scanner combo, with a few unique features that make it stand out from other similar devices. First, the printer has built in auto-duplexing. That means that you can print a document two sided without having to manually reinsert the paper after the first side prints. The downside is that the duplexing is really slow. It takes the printer a while to flip each sheet over as it is printing.
