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: 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: My new printer/scanner works great. It's a little larger than I'd like but the price and performance are worth it. The set-up was easy though getting the hang of their scanning program took a little time.
Initial trouble with setup - error about unlock scanner
Paul Lowder, Amazon
3 October 2007
Summary: Edited the rating up to 4 (still going strong after 2+ years) I followed the setup instructions to the letter - on step number one I unlocked the scanner lock on the top of the unit per the instructions. It whirred for a bit, then said to 'unlock the scanner lock' again. I opened the unit, found two more packing tapes inside that needed to be removed (note that for unpacking yours it doesn't tell you to look in there, or even that there is a 'in there' at that point),...
Summary: I really like that I have everything I need in one product. It saved me from adding another USB port. I love that I can take film and print pictures from it since I am a photo buff. The only draw back was finding the film slot under the document cover.The illustration was not clear to me in booklet.
Summary: We chose this printer because we want to scan our old 35 mm slide collection and needed to replace older inkjets that had died. While we haven't yet used it for scanning, both the text and photo printing are excellent and significantly faster than our old HP and Dell models. It is big and solid feeling, with good software and a nice control interface. We'll come back after we find time to use the scanner...
Summary: I bought this all in one to replace my aging HP Desk Jet 970cse printer and HP Scanjet 6200C scanner, both of which were excellent, but both of which were beginning to be pretty iffy, functionally. It looks nice, and while quite large, closes up into a nice looking package when not being used... Scan quality is about 7 on a scale of 10 compared to the HP unit, but it's slide scanning capability is FAR better...
Summary: In general, I love my new Canon MP810. I've been looking for a way to scan in hundreds of my old color slides for years. I even tried Kinkos; their response was we don't do that! Can you believe it? When I saw that this scanner did not only slides, but film negatives (35mm) also, I had to get it. I am currently scanning slides as I have time.
