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: 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: I have had the printer for about 3 weeks now and used it mainly for color or B/W printing on paper, not photos. I was very impressed with the ease of set up, packaging materials and instructions. Once out of the box, it is substantially built, heavy and has a large footprint. I like the idea that the ink cartridges can be refilled (versus buying new every time). It is easy to use and very fast.
Summary: While I have only had this photo printer a very short time, I can already say that it is impressive. I have never seen this good of print quality. The 4800x4800 scanner delivered a beautiful 8x10 print from a 35mm negative with no adjustments or computer assistance. The copies were quick and faithful. I am truly pleased to have purchased this MP810. I did have some trouble installing the software from the driver cd.
Summary: If you have 35mm slides that you want to turn into 4x6 prints, then this is the machine for you. I just printed some 53 year old 35mm slides as 4x6 prints and was very surprised at the quality of the colors and clarity of the prints. The Fade Restoration option is great for some of those slides that need a little "extra". The fact that you don't even need a computer to get started is a big plus.
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.
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: 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: Canon PIXMA MP810 All-in-One Photo Printer (1453B002) I was facing $70.00 to replace the ink in my multipurpose Lexmark or try refills. Color print quality was terrible. Read the reviews from cnet and other sources. My requirements were: separate ink for each color and high quality color prints. The MP810 does everything and more. Especially like the 35mm negative or slide feature. Even the printout door opens automatically if you forget.
