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.
Summary: We bought this printer based on extensive research and on the recommendations of a leading consumer magazine. We had trouble on two separate occasions with the ink cartridges "losing their minds" and deciding that they were empty when they were not.
Summary: I have had this printer for just over a year. Conveniently just after the 1 yr warranty ran out last week, my printer no longer powers up. I tried different outlets and nothing so basically I spent $260 for the use of a printer for a year.

Summary: The printer works good--quick. Scanner is good. The colors are not vibrant though. Everything is dull. We have tried a variety of papers and nothing seems to make any of the colors pop. We are considering looking into a laser printer instead.
Summary: I've had my canon mp810 for over a year and I do regret spending as much money as I did on a printer that has been a little frustrating. Firstly, the printer takes ages to start printing. Once it gets going, it is fast at printing.
