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: 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.
PIXMA MP810 a Solid Choice for the Photo Enthusiast

Summary: Beforing deciding upon the PIXMA MP810, we had an HP all-in-one that was dissapointing. I did a lot of research before buying this printer so as not to be left wanting more once again. It was difficult for me to finally decide upon this model, because I wanted faxing capabilities, and this all-in-one doesn't have that capability. However, I wanted the ability to convert 35mm slides and negatives to digital more than I wanted the ability to fax.
Summary: I'll keep this short.. First off this thing still has dozens of features i'm discovering that i've just never encountered on printers. The colors are bright and life like. There is virtually no graininess in prints of hi-res digital photos. But thus far the my favorite thing about this printer... replaceable print head...
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.
