Excerpt: After having a bad experience with a Kodak printer, I purchased this Canon printer. I think at the time it was on offer in PC world, so the cheap price was the thing that swayed me over anything.
Summary: I think this printer is excellent and would recommend it - as I love the wi-fi fact and I can be anywhere in the house to print out. It is good quality. The only down side I would say is that it uses a lot of ink, but I think this is common with most printers nowadays.
Great quality printer, but has some connection issues

Summary: Bought this to replace an Epson printer. Compared quite a few models from various different manufacturers and ended up going for Canon on reputation. Decided to spend a bit more than a bargain basement price to get something decent. Generally, we are really happy.
Summary: This MFD is a superb piece of kit, it's been very cleverly put together to give everything that you would want in a small home / office shared printer - Wireless access, duplex printing, incredible photo's and a superb speed in both colour and black and white.
Summary: Well I love this little printer so much and I have only had it one day. I used to have a printer that did CD's and DVD's once before and I loved that feature was always useful. The scanner on this printer is good and the print quality is amazing, I printed a photo on some glossy 4x6 photo paper and...
Summary: I haven't used the Pixma 640 very much so far. One or two glitches, where only 2 thirds of the page are printed or a print job disappears, but mostly ok. I'm connected by wireless, so maybe it's a problem with the software. The prints themselves are quite clear.
Summary: I had a faulty printer delivered initially, but when I phoned the customer care I had no problem... instant assessment that it was indeed faulty, and free replacement arrived in a couple of days.
Summary: Easy to set up if the instructions are followed precisely step by step as I did. Very flexible and useful connections, being USB, wireless and wired network. Very good print quality for text and graphics on normal paper and excellent photographs. They look stunning.
Summary: I got this printer as it prints directly on to CDs and is a wireless network printer and scanner. I do some graphics editing website managemet for my local church so the scanner comes in handy every now and then, the fact is can scan to any computer that is set up to receieve such images on the...
Summary: There's a lot to like about this printer/scanner. It's simple to use, with a scroll-wheel that will be familiar to users of other Canon gear (and iPods). Snow Leopard comes with drivers (plug in by USB if they're not already installed) for both the printer and scanner, so the only thing I took from...
