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.
PIXMA MP810 a Solid Choice for the Photo Enthusiast
Elizabeth M. Witham "documentary filmmaker", Amazon
13 January 2009
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 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: Makes nice copies, although it is slow. Scanner is more complicated than the HP we had. Haven't tried photo's yet. Might buy again if had to do it over, but would have done more research, as I relied on Consumer Reports and they claim this is one of the best.
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: I purchased this product to use for my home office and a small amount of photo printing. It was easy to set up, easy to use and I have had no problems with it. For the price, it's a great buy.
