  • Summary: An ok printer (with other functions), but ink seems to evaporate between my infrequent usage.
  • Pros: Printer, plus photocopy, fax, scanner.
  • Cons: Ink seems to "evaporate" when I'm not using it.

The Canon printer is okay

Ideamommy, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The all-in-one printer performs well in printing color images onto paper. It does its jobs well like most canon products. Though when scanning and printing it is kind of slow. It isn't wireless either and is exetremly bulky and a bit heavy. The Ink prices are also extremly high and its sensors that tell if the ink is low easily malfunction after a year or so. Its also a bit hard to line up paper on the scanner.

Canon Pixma MP530 Office All-In-One Inkjet Photo Printer

momandwebgeek, Rate it all!
2 December 2008
  • Summary: This printer does everything you want it to do, but it seems like every other day the ink is "low". If you try to push it and wait till the ink is totally gone, it will get to a point where it will not print because it says the ink is out (you can't even choose to print in grayscale when one of the colors is out. No ink, no print, no way). And when you go to replace the ink, it still appears to have enough to print (probably 1/4 full!).

I think it's a bit overrated

  • Summary: If price is your main criteria but you still want a good feature set, you should consider this printer. For more money you can easily do better.
  • Pros: Good print quality
  • Cons: The first page after sitting for a while takes FOREVER to print. Noisy and heavy.

Poor aftersales service

Amritlal D. Thanki, Amazon
22 June 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this printer because it was described as Vista Compatible. No doubt this is a good printer but Utilities supplied like Presto PageManager and Omnipage SE 4 are not Vista compatible.Presto PageManager is to be upgraded this month to make it Vista Compatible. Nuance.com provided me with download link to upgrade Omnipage SE 4 which does not upgrade the supplied utility.Neither Nuance.com nor Canon are helping me with my dilema.

Eats ink like a demon!

Flossy Flong, Amazon
22 February 2007
  • Summary: I used to have an hp Officejet 6110 and the ink used to last a lot longer than this Canon MP530. I don't know which represents the "norm" as I've only ever owned these two printers, but this one (the Canon) goes through ink super-fast. I think I do a pretty standard amount of printing, and not that much colour printing. It's not as user-friendly as the hp and even my very techy husband has not yet got the incoming fax working (and we've had it a while now).

Sehr gutes Gerät, aber unangemessenes Handling der Tinte

Goetz Schmidt-Bossert, Amazon
25 October 2007
  • Summary: Funktionalität sehr gut, sowohl unter Windows wie unter Mac OSX. Sehr gute Photoausdrucke, insbesondere wenn man mit dem mitgelieferten einfachen, aber funktionalen Programm EasyPhotoPrint arbeitet. Für Dokumentenausdruck kann man verschiedene Druckprofile anlegen. Im Modus "schnell" druckt das Gerät mit atemberaubender Geschwindigkeit, wirklich bis zu 20 Seiten pro Minute für Präsentationsfolien. Nachteil: sehr teure Tinte.

EL HOMÓLOGO A UN HORNOLAVAVAJILLASMICROONDAS

meduelelapierna, Ciao
4 July 2006
  • Summary: En la actualidad, en las empresas lo que se busca es principalmente ahorrar costes y facilitar que el trabajo sea lo más cómodo posible. Estuve trabajando en una donde había una vieja fotocopiadora, un escáner lleno de polvo, y un fax que siempre tenía la luz de alerta encendida. Pues bien, al jefe se le ocurrió consultarle al que le traía los tóner de las impresoras, y le habló de maravilla de este aparato "Todo en uno".
  • Pros: Todo en uno
  • Cons: Que no es tan rentable
