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!
Summary: I've had the MP530 for two years, and I absolutely love it! I am a freelance photographer, so I wanted something that could produce excellent photo prints. I am also a musician, and I print my own promotional materials, which again requires excellent print quality. I also needed at least an average-quality scanner and I have limited space.
Summary: It scans very nicely. It copies a bit crooked but fast and sharp and photos are good enough for framing - I framed a bunch. Maybe the color accuracy isn't as good as a $200 dedicated photo printer, but I also don't give a d*mn. Prints are fast and clear and color is good and it always seems to work right away without a cleaning or a re-setting or re-screwing-around. I appreciate that.
Summary: I decided to buy this printer because it had very good ratings for a business printer. It has excellent optics and printer clarity. The speed of printing is very good. It does a good job of scanning and faxing quickly. One of my main concerns was the ability to print labels and keep them aligned properly. The HP line of printers are excellent, but fall short in this area. I have been very pleased thus far with the ability of the printer to keep the labels aligned.
Summary: This printer is easy to set up. It has all the functions I need. The Duplex is excellent. I like the document feed scanner, it's realy save me alot of work with my large file. The Print quality is very good even my printer i bought is a refurbished model. Overall, this is the perfect printer for me.
Summary: I love this printer...I had a HP unit & it did not work very well...this unit is office professional...has many nice feature like duplex, fax, scan etc. Nice SW for controlling the unit also. Plus the individual print cartridges make the most of your money. I love this for my home office printing.
Summary: This printer is easy to set up and you're up and printing quickly. It has all the functions I need and the quality matches that of all Canon Products that I have previously owned. It uses less ink than other printers I've owned but the ink is quite expensive and there's a lack of Good compatible cartridges available. This is not exclusive to Canon products. Overall, this is the perfect printer for me.
