Excerpt: Overview I had a Canon MP210 for a long time after buying it on a cheap deal. Basically, it had a known design fault and it broke, having picked it up for about £30 anyway, I wasn't too upset. However, the print quality was so good on the Canon that I immediately started researching other Canon printers. I mainly print documents in grayscale and I also print a lot of colour photographs in 6" x 4". Printer features The printer is also a scanner and photocopier.

Too good to be true? Mine was a bit of a let down.!

Summary: I had high expectations of this printer having read several reviews, but I wouldn't buy another. I've had mine 6 months now and use it with both Windows and Linux operating systems. I like: 1) Print quality is good, so is CD/DVD printing. 2) Windows scanning software is good allowing a wide range of resolutions. Printer and scanner drivers are available for linux, if you're prepared to search them out on the internet.
Summary: My old scanner finally died - my last printer was screaming for more ink yet again - so I bought this 'all-in-one'. We have already used it as much for its 'stand-alone' facility as a photocopier (without the PC being on at all) as much as a scanner or printer for the PC. Absolutely brilliant. A piece of cake to use and set up.
Summary: Having read the reviews about this product I was keen to get one. Although the price is fair the machine is not as good as I had hoped. Print quality is good and reasonably quick, if "fast" is set as default. Photos are also good quality. Scanning is admirably quick and good. The downsides are as follows:- The product spends far too much "thinking time" and the delay between clicking "print" on your PC and a page issuing from the machine is frustratingly long -...
Summary: Excellent machine! Bought for simple b+w document & photo printing both of which it does very well. Simple docs are printed v quickly and photos are superb quality - I cannot stress this enough! I also like that it knows to grap plain paper from the cassette and photo paper from the rear feed.
Summary: Just purchased this printer & so far very pleased, but yet to assess printed photographs. Most importantly, this was very much plug & play for me on an Apple laptop, details: Mac OSX 10.6.1 (Snow Leopard) MacBook Pro with Intel processor As soon as plugged in to a USB port the laptop automatically selected the correct driver, & straightaway I was able to print & scan.
Summary: Ordered Wednesday - arrived Friday. Excellent product, well packaged, simple to set up (although slight delay in recognising connection to PC - possibly due to previous MP600 drivers being installed, great printer with a cassette tray too. Excellent value for money.
Great printer, apart from it eats ink even when you don't print!

Summary: I bought this printer around 3 weeks ago because I was looking for a decent all-in-one printer/scanner/copier and the reviews here and on Pc Pro were generally excellent. In terms of quality, the printer does not disappoint. The print quality is excellent, and is matched by equally excellent scanning in either colour or black and white.
