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.
Summary: We have 2 PixmaMP530 at 2 different houses. Great printer but a bit heavy to move back and forth. Prints well and scans and faxes well also. I looked at the newer Pixmas but went with the older model because of the generic ink. I bought 5 cartridges at Abacus for $20 with chips and you cannot beat that! HP has NEVER been a good bet for us. We like the Canon.
Summary: I've had this printer for almost two years now. I have had absolutely no problems with it! Pictures print beautifully and there are plenty of options here. I was always skeptical of an all in one printer. But the MP 530 has been a positive experience in all areas for me!
