Great value from a product lifecycle point of view.

Summary: The great thing about these older printers, if you can find them new, is they have separate cartridges per color so you don't have to throw out a partially used combo cartridge. You can also get 4 sets of ink for 20 bucks on ebay.
Canon PIXMA Mp620 All in one printer is * User Friendly *
23 February 2012
Summary: The Canon PIXMA MP620 is worth every penny I spent. This Canon Printer comes with all the software you need to install it. The software is also available on the Canon website. Setup takes about 30 minutes including installation time. You can hook it up through a WiFi connection or through a cable for easier setup. The MP620 print cartridges are available for cheap. Some have complained that this All in one printer uses up a lot of ink when printing.
Summary: Canon PIXMA MP620 is a good printer for home or small business. However, I purchased this printer because the first one encounter an error message "B200" and would no longer work without being served. When it works it's great...
Summary: I purchased this printer because my current one was getting a little outdated. I was unable to print from multiple devices on the network and the quality of printed photos wasn't optimal. That is no longer the case in this household! The Canon MP620 truly is an all-in-one printer. The scanner works quickly and efficiently and makes storing your scanned items on your hard drive simple with it's installation program.
Summary: This printer is great. It is a multipurpose printer that prints from the bottom and also the top depending on your process. It was hard to learn how to scan and I am always annoyed by the amount of software that Canon makes you download for everyone of its items. The printing is great although sending the application from computer to printer is slow.
Summary: I haven't thoroughly tested the unit, but out of the box I was able to setup the wireless printing in about 10 minutes. Software CD comes with a tool for wireless setup that can be uninstalled afterwards. I'm pretty sure you have to install the drivers on each machine you'd need to print from, but once you setup the wireless on one machine, you're good to go for the rest. I assume color and black and white copying is fast.
Pros: Prints via wifi. Canon quality prints. Came with sample pack of photo paper. Easy setup. Output door automatically opens when printing starts (no more ID-10T paper jams!). High quality photo print took around 30 seconds. Beautiful unit. Screen folds down and covers buttons on the unit for a sleek look.
Cons: Required drivers/software are 150mb. Wireless setup through software only (but you can uninstall afterwards). Not sure about ink prices, a quick check online shows a 5 pack (one of each cart you need) is around twenty bucks shipped. Not bad I guess? Manual duplex, no ADF. Small paper tray. I think 50 sheets of plain paper. Can't do ethernet & wireless at the same time. Pick one. (Setup for either is easy though.)
Summary: For the money, this printer is hard to beat ... although I understand Canon's new Pixma MP560 (successor to this model?) may actually be better. It isn't fast to print or scan, but certainly adequate for 90+ percent of home users. Having separate cartridges for each color (and both text and photo blacks) is a money-saver over the long run. Takes up little desk space, so it's great for those of us with overcrowded workspaces.
Pros: Wireless capability built-in; separate ink cartridges for each color; small form factor for an MFP; reasonable price.
Summary: Nicely designed, streamlined all-in-one. Fairly easy to set up and operate. Haven't set it up for wireless yet but it works seamlessly on USB connection. Makes a lot of "set-up" noises and prints at an average speed, neither super-fast nor super-slow. Color/head alignment process a tad tedious but necessary for color photos. LOVE the price! And it is recommended by Apple for Macintosh users; connection to my MacBook was a snap. Looks harder for Windows users.
Summary: There are some few misinformation about the Mac driver on here. Let me correct them here: 1) You can perform the scan function wirelessly. You can do it three ways (1) via the network scan services, press scan on the printer and sent the output to one of the registered PC's (2) Canon Application (3) on 10.6/10.5, via the scanner sidebar in the print & Fax preferences. You can also change the WiFi setting any time on the printer via the LCD panel.
Pros: Build-in Wireless Capability
Cons: Does not present itself as a Bonjour Printer for a Apple network. Must install additional driver on the Mac to recognize itself as a Canon IJ network printer. I think this is where most frustration come from. If Canon had supported Bonjour Printing, then most of the frustration will be gone!
