Good performance; great quality; crappy software; very expensive to run

Summary: This printer does everything I wanted it to do, and does it well in excess of my expectations. Plain paper printing is excellent, and the photo prints are simply gorgeous. I cannot tell the difference between this printer's photo output and store-bought prints.
Summary: I just recently received this printer after a lot of research. I wanted a wireless printer that actually worked--my HP Photosmart 4580 that I got with my Apple iMac didn't work. It would fall asleep and not wake up. The documents would get stuck in the print queue.
Limited use on my printer, but very pleased w/it so far

Summary: I did a lot of research on similar All-In One printers like the Canon PIXMA MP980. I was impressed with the good reviews and comments received from professionals and product users. I have not had mine very long, but I am impressed with the features and flexibility this printer offers.
Summary: Have had printer for about 3 weeks now - very happy so far. Prior printer was Canon 950i. It prints about as fast as my old printer (4.x6 in 20-30 seconds), but prints are even better (they were pretty good in the 950i) - they look like professional prints.
Great printer and scanner but terrible documentation

Summary: I wanted an all in one printer that worked wirelessly and this printer seemed like my best bet after reading all the reviews. I have used the printer for almost two weeks now on a Windows XP system and on a Vista system running 64 bits. Here is my evaluation so far.
Summary: I've had it for over a year and I like it. I primarily use this printer for printing out homework with colored graphics on the pages. I just realized that it's been years and I've never printed out a picture from my digital camera. Unfortunately I can't comment on the photo printing aspect.
Summary: I have now owned this printer for the past month. I needed a new all in one printer to replace my old one. This printer prints blazing fast black and white text and professional quality pictures. I enjoy the double sided printing as well, which makes it easy to print trifold brochures.
Summary: I ordered my printer from the Canon website as soon as it was out in October. The first one that I received did not work. Some kind of error kept coming up on the screen, almost 2 hours on the phone with a Canon rep and the bottom line is it was some error with the print head/ink station.
Summary: This printer mostly lives up to its technical descriptions with many great features and is the best Canon printer I have had to date. I highly recommend its so far. Although I was very pleased with my Canon i980, this surpasses it providing even higher quality prints.
Summary: Apart from the utterly irritating fact that the Amazon price has halved in the year since I bought the 980 (is it end of line now I wonder?), there are two negatives amongst all the positives.
