Summary: A previous old printer gave way and after reading multiple reviews, I purchased a newer version of the original ink jet printer. Set-up instructions were well written and worked without serious problems (had to restart computer software and printer recognition setup a few times to finally have a smoothly running team). Printing, copying, and scanning are great. What is a particularly useful feature is the very originally designed slide and film scanner.
Summary: I recently purchased the Canon MP980 Wireless All-in-One Photo Printer and I absolutely love it! It was so easy to set up and the quality of the photos is incredible! I highly recommend this product!
Summary: I checked Consumer Report before I bought the 980 & did my homework first & glad I did!!! Many of the reviews I read were all very Positive about the printer, the only Negative ones I read was the issue on ink usage! Those who say that the Pixma 980 is an INK MONSTER is just plain old "CHEAP"! Those are the same buyers that stock up when McDonalds or Burger King runs specials on Burgers at $.20 each & you get what you pay for, nothing but a GUT GRENADE.
Summary: THIS PRINTER WILL JUST SPOIL YOU.I AM TOTALLY HOOKED .MY WIFE IS JUST THRILLED WITH IT THAT SHE STOPPED USING HER PRINTER IT IS HOOKED UP TO WORK WIRELESSLY WITH MY ALUMINUM MACBOOK PRO. THEY WERE MADE FOR EACH OTHER .THE PRINTER HOLDS YOUR HAND FOR EVERY FUNCTION IT DOES. IT IS SO EASY TO USE.
Summary: I had read numerous reviews of this product and am aware it is out of production and superceded by the mp990 before I bought it. I am also aware that most buyers of the 980 felt set-up was a pain, the print speed poor and the "ready to print" time ridiculous after turn-on. Nevertheless, the photo reproduction and scanning are the best on the market and there is extensive support by Canon with a wide range of specialty papers.
Summary: We bought this printer to replace an HP flatbed scanner and a Lexmark stand-alone printer. The setup went flawlessly and we were up and scanning/printing in minutes. We were most interested in the slide scanning feature of this printer (we have well over a 1000 slides we want the archive). The scanning and printing functions are great. But the slide scanning feature far exceeded our expectations.
Summary: At first, I was quite skeptical, but I had tried to prints through my digital card, copies, scan, and documents were excellent! My print photos is look exactly as Rite Aid's photo lab!!! It was little noisy but not bothers me at all. I love that looks as clean cut and modern.
