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).
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.
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!! I haven't tried taking the cartridge to have them refilled but I think that will be my next option when I am ready to refill.
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'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.
