Summary: I especially like this model of Canon Inkjet (and the MP560) because of their separate ink tanks (5) and the availability of really cheap ink via ebay or amazon (the CLI 220/221 inks). For that reason alone, buying this printer will save you money in the long run if you use the cheap inks. Printers are like razors, they make their money on blades (inks).
Excerpt: I love this printer for being wireless. All I need is one printer for my family of five. No more buying ink for several printers used by my teenagers to do their homework. Everybody just prints from their room and their documents are waiting for pick up. Another great feature is that they can scan a document and send the file to the computer in their room.
This printer does pretty much everything except pour me a drink

Excerpt: I've always had a computer in my home since, oh, about 1982 when I bought a Commodore 64 while stationed in Germany. I've owned various types and models of printers, from an Okidata Dot Matrix to a thermal printer of some brand I can't remember. I've had Epson, HP and Lexmark printers. I've watched them all evolve over the years and, like most computer related technology, they just keep getting better and cheaper. Lucky us.
Excerpt: We bought this printer over a year ago, as we finally couldn't handle anymore paper jams with our last one. We were looking for a printer that would be wireless, energy saver, color comes in separate cartridges, and saving options. This printer has met our expectations and more. We have not really had a problem with it. We have it set up so that our desktop and laptop will print from it. The wireless capabilities are great.
Excerpt: I recently found myself in dire need of a printer when, in the middle of printing resumes, my printer decided to commit suicide. Being pressed for time, I drove out to Best Buy to see what my choices were. My hopes weren't high as I browsed the offerings. There were a few options I needed. I needed an all-in-one for scanning and copying and I needed it to be wireless because of the multiple PCs in various locations.
Excerpt: The Canon Pixma MP620 is by far the best printer I have ever used in my 13 years of using computers. My old printers were always Epson and they always sucked. I kept buying them because everyone said Epson made good printers. Hah! This printer does it all - I printed a photo using some of the sample pack of 4" x 6" paper that came with it and it looks EXACTLY like I had the photo printed at a photo processing store.
Excerpt: I had an old epson printer before this and it was expensive to refill. It had one of those ink refills that was combined all the inks into one. It was a waste when I ran out of just one color and had to replace the whole thing. I am so glad that this one had seperate ink tanks. When I run out of just one color, I can replace just that one ink tank and not the rest. The price for the ink is pretty well priced and last for a while.
Excerpt: I purchased this printer to go along with the new computer (it was for my birthday this time). Found the model for 100 bucks on clearance. From what I could tell, everything was the same about this printer to the new one coming out sitting next to it. The printer has Wi-Fi capabilities, prints on both sides of the paper, has a internal paper tray as well as external back feeding tray and works fast.
Summary: Very good printer and the ink cartridges are cheap. The quality is excellent, only the wireless connection is not like I though, you have to install the printer thru USB cable and configure the connection thru one of the computer.
Archival-quality pictures + wireless = superior all-in-one printer

Summary: Newer isn't always better. The Canon PIXMA MP620 is selling for more now used than it was when I purchased my original new. Its value over other all-in-one printers can focus on the ability to print wirelessly with a WiFi connection (even though this is not my favorite feature). I love Canon's crisp pictures (fine-printhead technology that prints with microscopic droplets) and the ability to purchase archival-quality ChromaLife 100+ (pictures can last up to 300 years!
