"Average, ink usage excessive and grayscale uses colors."

rem16, CNET
10 January 2011
  • Pros: It prints decent photos and average text, duplexes and is wireless.
  • Cons: 3 color photos and then only grayscale. In 6 months use I've replaced all cartridges once, need to install magenta and gray is half gone. Only print 5-10 pages per week and only grayscale since 1st ink replacement. Want a free printer, take mine!

"Not a good choice for Photo-enthusiasts"

emchodos, CNET
7 April 2010
  • Pros: Easy to use buttons, Easy to reload ink-cartridges; User-friendly
  • Cons: Poor photo quality -- either printed too dark, over-saturated or very faded. Limited photo settings; Small ink cartridges that run out quickly and are very costly compared to HP.

Great for Scanning, Horrible for Printing!

Melissa, Amazon
20 March 2009
  • Summary: This is great for scanning (I've done a lot of slides), but it is horrible for printing - it uses too much ink. Seriously, it gives low ink warnings after 20-30 pages of black text. It uses up all the colors, even when you follow Canon's advice for setting it to grayscale. I will never buy another Canon printer. Now I'm stuck with this bulky machine that's only good for scanning - it's too expensive to print with.

"Ok copier and good imaging - poor paper feed mechanism"

StaffFryes, CNET
15 November 2008
  • Pros: High speed imaging capability is very good which is about you can say positively about the MP 980.
  • Cons: Absolute nightmare to set up wireless printing. Finally gave up. The paper feed mechanisms are poor quality and I doubt they will last. I expected a lot more from a printer in this price range.

Canon MP980 the alcoholic printer

demck, Amazon
2 October 2010
  • Summary: Bought it because all review sites gave it top marks. Scan quality is good. Letter printing is excellent (at top quality). Photo prints are very good (again at top quality setting). There is one major problem with this printer which none of the review sites pick up on, and they should as it is a very important point. It is about time that the review sites gave a realistic ink usage review of printers. The Canon MP980 is an alcoholic printer.

GREY INK GUZZLER

David Mottram, Amazon
16 December 2009
  • Summary: Canon PIXMA MP980 Printer I purchased this printer eleven months ago. The print quality is fairly good, I can only get the CD label printing feature to print from a scanned image i cannot find a way to print from a file! This also applies to the film/negative scanner it will print these direct to paper but will not save them to PC. Also the grey ink runs out four times faster than the other four inks!

Just purchased but concerned..............

D. Henson, Amazon
18 November 2009
  • Summary: Having seen the reviews on here and having read the specs that claim high figures for printing from the ink cartridges plus all the other facilities it offers that are very good I bought the printer this November 2009. I have printed less than 20 sheets of paper (A4) that are variously print and photo and many are not more that a few lines of text and I find the grey cartridge is dropping fast.

Canon Pixma MP980

Dk Price, Amazon
14 September 2009
  • Summary: I found it very difficult to insert the printer head using the cartoons, and managed to insert it incorrectly, and then found it very, very difficult to remove the print head before re-inserting it. I think the instructions are inadequate. Having learnt from experience the second attempt proved very easy. The printer sets up quickly and without any problems thereafter. I was disappointed by the relative lack of control over the printing process but the results are good.
