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.
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: I've owned several printers throughout the years and currently own three. I've had this printer for about a year. I purchased this printer because I saw it on sale. The MP530 is very similar to the MP500. I still own and use a MP500 and it's my favorite printer but I bought the MP530 as a backup. There are a few differences: Pros are that the MP530 can fax and has an automatic document feeder. Cons are that it's missing media slots and a preview lcd which the MP500 has.
Excerpt: I got this printer several years ago and have been loving it!! I bought it from CompUsa (which aer not around anymore). I use it the most for printing coupons and such, printing photos, making copies and scanning. It has a fax feature, which i have never used. The pictures are a GREAT quality. The biggest ones i print are 4x6, but im sure the bigger pictures turn out great too. The printer has tons of features and extras. It is super easy to use.
I do a lot of printing and it has been extremely reliable for me

Excerpt: I do print advertising for a living and have to use my Canon MP530 to print out ads for clients to see and also use it for advertising sales packages. It always comes out great. I have had it for over a year now and have not had issues with it. I scan pictures all the time to my graphic designer, who says they come out great for a high quality print. I use my printer for many reasons, copies, scanning and printing mostly and use it fairly heavily.
It's an office printer made for the home at an affordable price.

Excerpt: With this printer, it's like having a copy center in your very own home! It can do everything -- copy, scan, fax, print photos, BW/Color printing, you name it. Most times, all-in-ones lack quality in some of their features, but not this one. It does everything perfectly. My scans are so perfect, I'd think I was looking at the originals.
Pros: The machine is sturdy and beefy w/o being overbearing. It can handle a high volume of printouts and has enough options available for special use. It scans nicely as well. Its the perfect middle ground between office machine and personal-use machine
Cons: The paper tray on the bottom is a little light and takes a sturdy hand to get in place.
