Summary: Bought this printer to replace the same type I had that froze. It had been a good printer which took lots of use and worked quickly and well until it broke. I know I got my money's worth. So happy to get a new; one which is working well.
Summary: I buy non oem cartridges from this company for $5. I treat my canon pixma rough. I've printed 100 page documents on it often. The machine works well. The only thing is that the scanning feature is not fully compatible with vista. However not a big deal just import from the pc using a program and you can scan what you need. You can feed paper from the cartride or the back. I use the cartridge for regular paper and the back for photo papers, envelopes etc.
Summary: Things I like: -Awesome printer, does everything I want it to do. -The CLI-8 cartridges this machine uses are super easy to refill, making printing nearly free. -If you search online you can find out how to enable the CD printing function. I use this a lot and it works great. -Borderless photos are awesome. -Scanner has excellent quality and is easy to use. -I really like how the printer has two paper trays and duplexing.
Summary: I've had a few Cannon printers and I upgraded to this one for the scanned/copier. I also wanted to stay with the CLI-8 and PGI-5 cartridges. I got a reconditioned model, but it works great! There are newer models, but they use a different ink cartridges that doesn't hold as much ink but still costs about the same so I wasn't too excited about that, especially as I was all set up to refill the CLI-8 and PGI-5 cartriges which saves me a lot of money.
Summary: I've had the Pixma 610 for a little less than three weeks. I ordered this printer from Amazon at 10 p.m. on Nov. 10, 2008, chose free shipping and received the printer Nov. 12th (1.5 days). Amazing Amazon! But at the time of writing this review Amazon is offering this printer for $50 less than I paid for it. I made several phone calls to Amazon and Canon but could not get it price adjusted.
Summary: I've had this Canon PIXMA MP610 for about a month. The copy quality is excellent in black and white, and in color. The printing is quick and quiet, the scanner works well, and the controls are intuitive and easy to use. I'm not particularly technically oriented, and I found the machine wonderfully easy to set up. The instructions were superb--absolutely clear, and everything happened just as it was supposed to.
Summary: I went on consumer reports before I bought this and found this no. one for the price and wow it beats my old dell all to pieces. I havent bought any ink yet so I cant tell you about that but for the speed and quality you cant beat it.
