Summary: This printer was not too long ago replaced with a wireless printer in our library but found a new home in my kitchen next to my laptop. It still works beautifully and has never caused any problems. Prints beautiful color photos but I use it now primarily to print out recipes I happen to want hard copies of.
Summary: I bought this printer about 2 years ago. Up until tonight it has printed great. I would say that I didn't even come close to printing 500 pages with this printer in that time. Probably much less. I replaced the ink once, relatively recently. Tonight, I print one page. It turns off and that's all she wrote. Nothing. Won't turn on anymore. tried everything I know to get it back to life. 2 stars, sorry Canon you'll have to do better than 2 years. My old HP lasted 10.
Summary: The Canon PIXMA MP810 is everything it says it is. Printing is sharp. Photos, when printed on Canon Glossy Photo Paper, are better than what I get from a photo store (like Wal Mart). It will also print from slides with the included slide holder, and these prints are sharp and clear as well. Scanner works extremely well. I am 100% satisfied.
Summary: We have owned this printer for over a year. We print photo's from both the Canon camera's memory card and from the software that came with the printer. The printer photo prints from the memory card are far better quality than from the Canon software program. This printer goes through ink cartridge's very rapidly. I can't give you a page total for printing color photo prints or black on white text print.
Summary: I have had the printer for about 3 weeks now and used it mainly for color or B/W printing on paper, not photos. I was very impressed with the ease of set up, packaging materials and instructions. Once out of the box, it is substantially built, heavy and has a large footprint. I like the idea that the ink cartridges can be refilled (versus buying new every time). It is easy to use and very fast.
Summary: While I have only had this photo printer a very short time, I can already say that it is impressive. I have never seen this good of print quality. The 4800x4800 scanner delivered a beautiful 8x10 print from a 35mm negative with no adjustments or computer assistance. The copies were quick and faithful. I am truly pleased to have purchased this MP810. I did have some trouble installing the software from the driver cd.
Summary: If you have 35mm slides that you want to turn into 4x6 prints, then this is the machine for you. I just printed some 53 year old 35mm slides as 4x6 prints and was very surprised at the quality of the colors and clarity of the prints. The Fade Restoration option is great for some of those slides that need a little "extra". The fact that you don't even need a computer to get started is a big plus.
Summary: After much research, I bought this printer about 6 weeks ago. I have a Canon Rebel XT camera and wanted a printer that would print great photos as well as scan 35mm slides and negatives. So far everything more than lives up to my expectations! I really like this printer and I've had a lot of experience with printers both at home and at work. I am an artist and planned to use the camera to take photos of possible subjects for paintings and print them as a reference.
Summary: Got this printer 2 weeks back. Still haven't tested everything, but did scan some old photos and printed some digital prints on 6x4 glossy. The photos are looking awesome and are quite comparable to prints from the photo labs. The print speed is unbelievable, and the ink drys real quick. I used to get my prints from wolf camera, but now, I can get the same quality at home. I still haven't tried scanning in negatives, which is part of the reason why I went for this model.
