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 been using this all-in-one since May 2007. It is the best printer/scanner I have ever used. No problems, excellent results scanning prints & negatives, and printing stuff like web pages, emails etc. - I don't use the Canon to print large photographs - and I have a seperate 4x6 photo printer. I guess I am a light user of the printer, since I have only gone thru 2 or 3 sets of ink packs in ~18months.
Summary: Being a graybeard, I have owned many computer printers since my first dot matrix, circa 1978. Until now, each one has vastly outperformed its predecessor. However, the performance of the Canon MP810 is so far beyond the performance of the Deskjet 870 it replaces that "vastly outperforms" is a gross understatement. What should be apparent from the Canon product description is that this printer does virtually anything one can imagine doing with a printer. Quick text?
Summary: First off, Amazon had the cheapest price on this printer ANYWHERE. It looks out of stock now, but if it came back in stock, this is the place to get it. I bought this for my husband for Christmas. He actually needed a new scanner as his was old, but our generic printer could have been updated too. And I liked that it had the copy feature. The prints are quick and quite good.
Summary: Prints come out fast and clean. Scans are crisp as well. I have printed a few pics on it and have been very pleased so far. As of now the only downfalls I have found are its size (pretty big printer) and the lack of ink options (all my local stores only get Canon ink.) If you have the room for it, I highly recommend this printer.
Summary: I am not an expert on photo printers but I do not see how the prints that this printer creates can be any better. All my friends are impressed with the quality of the printed photos. Really Amazing. Scanner works great. Have not tried scanning 35mm or Slides yet which was a factor in buying this model. Was delivered very fast by Amazon which had the best price after research. Reading the reviews was a major factor in my decision to purchase(Amazon and CNET).
