Summary: I have had this printer for a few years. It seems to print ok, but it goes through an incredible amount of ink. I don't use the printer very often, but when I do, the ink seems to be always empty. The printer often goes "offline" which requires me to restart each time I need to use it. So, much for the convience of a wireless connection. When the printer restart it goes through a lengty process before I am allowed to print.
Summary: This Printer was promising. Not that expensive (I believe I paid less than $100), but ultimately, the scanner is very slow, the printing quality on photos okay, and the paper feeder is flat out annoying. I have spent 1 hour trying to get this machine to print at times-- only to have printer feeder errors. The Printer would not even take the manual feed. In addition, the cartridge was not cost effective...
Not durable, slow, low color print quality, hi ink cost; wireless a plus

Summary: After initially being excited that we could print wirelessly, our enthusiasm waned as we discovered how slow color printing was, how quickly it used ink, the poor color quality (unless on photo setting, which uses ink at a ridiculous pace), and the high cost of ink. The love affair was over when it stopped working after about a year due to an internal error. Canon's technical support courteously told me to turn it off and on, unplug it, etc., which didn't work.
Summary: We have had this printer for over a year and our color printing is minimal, but it is always out of at least one of the color ink cartridges. This would not be a problem but the whole system will not work if there is an empty ink cartridge. It will not work as a scanner or allow printing in only black if there is a color ink cartridge out. I feel that for the small amount of printing I actually do it is always non functional when I need it.
Summary: Most reviews for this printer only go as far as how it performs, so I won't go into that. It does perform fine, but there are major problems with ink usage. This thing uses colored inks even if you have set it up to only printing black and white. So you end up paying for a lot of expensive ink that you don't even use! I'm not sure if it uses colored inks even when you set it up for B&W printing only or if they are evaporating.
Sucks Ink Like Crazy -- Low Use Printing - Yet High Ink Useage What gives?

Summary: Don't Buy It. We bought this canon to replace our HP when the HP ink costs continued to soar. We were happy at first but now, after 2 years of use, I can safely review this printer as an INK SUCKER. It seems like Canon sets up their ink cartridges to run out after a set period of time rather than actual usage. We rarely print anything yet nearly every time I do, the printer is low on ink. It's ridiculous. Don't buy it.
Don't expect to use this with a wireless connection

Summary: I've had my MP620 printer for 2.5 years with the purpose of printing my fine-art photography at home over a wireless connection. As other reviews have mentioned, this printer takes up a lot of ink for any printing job you need done. I've found it to be cheaper to have Staples or UPS print out multiple black-and-white and color flyers than to print anything from this printer. Photos are the same way.
Summary: First of all, it uses way too much. About twice as much as it could which wastes your money and forces you to refill the cartridges more often. Also, it won't let you print in black and white when one of the color cartridges is either empty or missing. You have to have all of the cartridges with at least some ink inside to print anything at all. I'm trying to look for an override because this sucks but I haven't found one yet.
Summary: i actually got this from someone getting rid of it and im still somewhat pissed i got stuck with it. it takes 45-60 seconds of making a bunch of noise before it'll even start printing anything. setting up the wi-fi was a completely retarded system and took an unnecessarily long amount of time. the ink runs out pretty quickly. i cant get the scanner to work over wi-fi with a mac.
Summary: I was satisfied with my Canon MP620 Wireless All-in-One Photo Printer until it failed on me just after a year of use. It posted printer error B200 which I can't get rid of and requires that it be sent out for repair which is not worth the expense with labor costs as high as they are. I can't see what is wrong with it but even reinstalling the software and drivers didn't solve the problem.
