Summary: I feel a bit guilty about only giving three stars as this really should be a 5* printer but the amount of ink I waste due to print head clean cycles is ridiculous. I'm quite a low volume user and so every time I go to print something, even if it's just a monochrome document, the printer insists on doing a print head clean cycle - I understand the philosophy as to why this is a good idea, but if you're an infrequent user then you will end up wasting more ink than actually...
Excellent images but ink consumption is incredible
3 March 2010
Summary: First things first, images generated by this printer are excellent if you're printing on high quality paper. Scans are also of very high quality. Text does bleed when printing to low-grade paper, but that's to be expected with an ink jet. Now, on to my only complaint - ink consumption. Before buying this printer I'd heard that ink consumption was high, but I never would have expected it to be as bad as it is.
Summary: The PIXMA arrived in good time and exactly as described by Amazon. It was easy to unpack and to set up initially, but when I was setting it up wirelessly it took an enormous amount of effort and frustration before I got it it to work properly. Even now, after a few weeks of ownership I have difficulty in persuading it as to which source of paper I wish it to use!
Summary: Printer installed easily, scans and prints a treat. Stand alone use for copying - even double sided and CD disc printing very easy to use. Worth the money. Unfortunately the CD Print and photoprint software crashes my computer, requiring reboot. The initial online help from Canon was quick but did not solve the problem and they appear to have lost interest. Hence 5 stars reduced to 3.
Summary: Seit Dezember 2009 ist er in meinem Besitz. Hat eigentlich viel Asche gekostet aber ich dachte kaufst du lieber etwas besseres. Sieht ja edel aus. Er druckt auch gut. War eigentlich über die Arbeit des Druckers soweit zufrieden. Nur ein Tintenverschwender auf höchster Stufe ist der MP640. Ich bin kein Vieldrucker daher war der Drucker oft aus. Bei jedem Anschalten war dann ein 3 Minuten dauerndes Rumgerödel im Gange bis der Drucker endlich mal loslegte.
