"Would have been good, hadn't Canon made it useless."

Lrz0r, CNET
1 July 2012
  • Pros: Great feature set. OK build quality. OK software.
  • Cons: The showstopper is its insane ink usage. You could just as well buy a full set of ink cartridges and throw them directly in the garbage, instead of bothering with installing them in the printer first. Repeat ad nauseam.

  • Pros: There are no pros - I have spent 4-5 times more on ink than I did for the printer! I have never been able to link it wirelessly even with my laptop sitting on top of the printer!!! It tells me that the connection is too far away! Scanning and adding do
  • Cons: The worst part is that I have even gone through a full 500 pack of paper since I've owned this printer. The warranty is out, I don't use it enough to have done anything about it. But, I've talked with someone at a basic electronics store and they inform

"Uses expensive link at a fantastic rate"

garyberger, CNET
12 November 2010
  • Pros: Makes a ton of money for Canon
  • Cons: Puts users in the poorhouse due to consuming ink like crazy. If it runs out of one color, all functioning ceases until you pay 14.00 for a replacement cartridge, and there are 6 of them so it seems like there is always one that needs replacing.

  • Pros: Nice printer, scanner, etc, . . . (continued in Cons below)
  • Cons: UNTIL you realize that this printer eats ink like a hog!!!! Doesn't matter that you use mostly b&w, it will also gobble up color ink as well.

"My last Canon"

coop1935, CNET
12 July 2010
  • Pros: None at all.
  • Cons: This is my eighth and last Canon printer. Besides the terrible use of ink and high priced cartridges which can't be refilled without moving a degree, the paper take up has stopped working after five weeks; so back to the shop..

"Truly appalling printer"

chriswalsh1961, CNET
13 August 2009
  • Pros: I haven't found any yet!
  • Cons: Messed up self-installation of printer head.. This lead to a customer service call where my options were 1. pay a service center to fix the problem or 2. swap my brand new printer for a refurbished one. Gee thanks Canon!
