Excerpt: The Canon MP610 is a great multi-purpose printer. Besides printing color and photos, It copies and scans. My fiance and I run it on a wireless network so that I can print to it from my work laptop without having to physically connect the machines. It prints photos that are indistinguishable from photo lab pictures, in both matte and glossy. The display screen makes it easy to interface with the machine, and it prints very quickly. I haven't had a single problem with it.
Excerpt: I have used this all-in-one to do a variety of projects. If you want to print pictures off of a camera this is great! It has the drives built right into the printer to print pictures off your camera media disks. There is a screen on the printer to view your pictures as well but it is small so you should know what you would like to print before you put your disk in the printers drive. The pictures printed from the camera's disks or from the computer to the printer come...
Canon MP610 printer right decision for budget savy individual
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Canon Pixma MP610 I purchased on Amazon.com last black Friday for I think $60 or $70 bucks. Who can beat that? It has copy, scan, print and a small screan to edit photos. I loved it loved it loved until I had to replace 5 heads of ink and I could have practically purchased a new printer. I think pretty much all printer ink is outrageous!!
Excerpt: I really like this printer and only wish that I had gotten one of the models with fax capability (which I didn't need at the time). It replaced an HP multi-function model that had issues that I got tired of dealing with. The MP610 installation is simple. The software provided is pretty easy for just about anyone to use. The front-panel interface isn't too bad either (I "tested" it with my wife, if she can do it - you can too).
Summary: I was really pleased with this printer and it seemed to work well without any malfunctions or warnings for 4.5 years. However one day it simply didn't print in Black and then a few days later I received an error stating the wrong printer heads are installed. In checking on line for solutions, it seems I'd be better off to simply replace it. Not a problem if I didn't have a substantial inventory of inks that I can not use on any other Canon nor return.
Summary: Have had this for some time now and love the machine. Ink is expensive but if you don't do a lot of pictures they last for a reasonable time. Good scanning and printing without a lot of maintenace.
Summary: Got this free with my Mac back in 2008 and I love it. I am blown away at the quality of the prints. Using the Costco Pro Gloss Photo Paper and I couldn't be happier. I didn't give it a 5 only because I know this is only a home-grade photo printer, not a $900 Epson.
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 wanted a not-too-expensive home printer that featured automatic duplexing and a scanner. This was the least expensive that I could find; one year and several thousand printed sheets later, it's still working well. Granted, photo quality isn't very good, but it's not really a photo printer. I'm an academic, so I'm mostly concerned with the text print quality, which is more than acceptable.
Summary: I will not add to the review dialogue, the quality of the printer/scanner has been adequately addressed. I will, however, say this: Whose idea was it over at Canon to say "Gee, lets sell a printer that attaches to your computer via a usb cable, and then not include the cable. That will be awesome.
