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: 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.
Summary: I'm in love with this machine!!! I have boxes of old negatives, many that I haven't had prints of for years. As soon as I got it set up I started scanning, and I am blown away with the results! They look as good as the digital photos on my computer, and print beautifully! Using with Vista & Adobe Photoshop elements, and no glitches. Also pleased with easy set-up, and user friendly software. Definately a buy!
Summary: This printer has some really great functions. The print quality is amazing for both photos and documents. I have hundreds of 35mm negatives that I am transferring to digital. It is a slow process, but now I can quickly go through my photos and fix red eye, white balance, convert color photos to black and white, etc. It does duplex printing (double-sided like a professional copy machine).
Summary: Prints come out fast and clean. Scans are crisp as well. I have printed a few pics on it and have been very pleased so far. As of now the only downfalls I have found are its size (pretty big printer) and the lack of ink options (all my local stores only get Canon ink.) If you have the room for it, I highly recommend this printer.
Summary: I am not an expert on photo printers but I do not see how the prints that this printer creates can be any better. All my friends are impressed with the quality of the printed photos. Really Amazing. Scanner works great. Have not tried scanning 35mm or Slides yet which was a factor in buying this model. Was delivered very fast by Amazon which had the best price after research. Reading the reviews was a major factor in my decision to purchase(Amazon and CNET).
