Summary: My Canon Pixma MP560 worked beautifully for the lst three years and then all of a sudden it stopped printing. It went through all of the motions, but blank copies emerged. When I called a place in Portland that repairs Canons, they advised since it costs $60 just to look at it, additional costs to repair, I would be better off just buying a new one. Very disappointing.
Summary: Good quality printer for documents as well as photos. One of the cons is that it shakes while printing. Also, if you the printer has been sitting unused for a day or so, it must go into some type of hibernation mode because it takes (FOREVER) almost 2 minutes to start physically printing from the moment you click print.
Beware of the B200 error. Only 1 year and it's a pain.

Summary: After about a year my MP560 gave an error message that says B200, call service center. I googled the problem and you can see for yourself that it's quite common. I tried a few of the solutions, and nothing. Nice printer when it works, but mine doesn't anymore. Frustrating. Who has the time to deal with things like this or even where to begin?
Summary: We have owned this for about two years and it has been a dream. I love that all the ink colors are separately replaceable to reduce waste. Scanning a document or photo is easy -- I just open the built in Image Capture app on my Mac, put the document in, and click Scan -- all using our wireless network (no USB required). The printer is in a separate room and we just print to it over our wireless network -- never any problems.
Excerpt: I sure feel special cause i own one of these babies! I got it as a gift from my spouse and it's perfect! I wish it didnt cost so much for the supplies. The quality is perfect and it's a cool looking machine.
Excerpt: I just received my first ink jet printer (usually prefer laser printers) but I wanted to try the photo and needed the san option, Installation is Ok, and now I tried again and even got the wireless to work easily. However i can not understand why photoprint is only for 10x15? false marketing: the sales speach say up to 9600 dpi and I expected this not to be restricted to one size?
Excerpt: I recently puchased this printer after my Lexmark was not compatible with me new computer. I was sceptical at first, as I had never owned a Cannon before. When I received it, I wa amazed how easy it was to set up and install. The time it takes to copy a page is amazing, and the quality is great. I haven't tried any of the other features yet as I am still learning about the copying sizes and what all it can do.
