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: 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!
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 my Cannon printer after having many problems with other brands of printers. My Cannon printer really has performed better than all the other printers I've had. The printer I had before my MP530 had trouble with it's paper feed. The Cannon gives me 2 options for paper feed. There is a cassette for bulk paper (about 50 sheets at a time) and for special paper stock I can use the back feed option where it handles about 5-10 sheets.
I love this all-in-one printer, but it is too hungry for ink!

Excerpt: The Search... Luckily, your 10 year old son noticed your emotional breakdown and figured due to her proximity to their family computer what had gone wrong. She had not configured the print job in the preference section of the printer to print the correct paper type, the quality, and speed.
Excerpt: This printer will blow your mind, if you been using an HP, Brother or Lexmark PRinter lately. The quality of and speed of everyday printing is awesome and the option to print color photos, is well most excellent. Photos are very crisp and look just like store quality thanks to a pigment ink tank and the Candon proprietary enhanced color inks. the printer has five ink tanks including a super sized standard black ink tank.
Excerpt: My husband and I need to purchase a new printer because our old one didn't do everything I needed it todo for our small home office since I started to work from home. I needed a scanner that I could use that wasn't difficult, a fax line that didn't have to be dedicated and a good printer for photos. I will have to say we got all 3 of these things. The printer isn't very big which I love. It is able to fit in next to our computer with no problems.
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.
