Summary: Before I had this printer I purchased a Kodak All-in-one. The one that advertises lab quality prints at half the price. It worked really well the first month of having it. After that I have never been more frustrated with an electronic device.
Summary: I was looking for a good all-around color printer for printing on both plain paper and also for high quality photo prints. The MP980 was a new model, but the specs were excellent. When I ordered it, there were no reviews yet. My first unit had a problem with the built-in display screen.
Great prints and convenience on home wi-fi network

Summary: I have now been using this printer/scanner for over two weeks. This replaces an old HP multifunction device which had problems with my Mac when printing over the network. I work from home and have several computers running, Vista, XP and OSX and wanted them to share a printer/scanner.
Summary: I haven't looked at a Inkjet Photo printer in about 5 years. When I looked back then, they were awful, expensive and a waste of money. My wife wanted to start printing some photos so we thought we would look around again. A friend suggested this printer and WOW, it's great.
Summary: As predicted, the Canon MP980 is awesome! The only difficulty that occured during installation was insertion of the print head - as other reviews stated. The instructions are backward, (even the tech at Canon didn't know this!
Summary: Lets face it- the Japanese do electronics well, even though they use Chinese factories nowadays. The quality control is there and it shines through in this product. Not only that, it is aesthetically pleasing as well.
Summary: While the reviews listed here are helpful, I think we are simply too picky. This is hands down the best home printer I've ever had. The printing quality is wonderful, it is quiet, and overall fantastic. Very simple to install on my network--on both PCs and Macs. Great printer.
Summary: I have had many printers including HP and Epson over the past 4 years. Never have I been so thrilled with a printer as the MP980. This printer responds quickly, does what it says it's going to do, and for once I have results that match my screen without tweaking any settings.
Summary: Was a little nervous at first due to the reviews claiming difficulty hooking up this printer wirelessly. I am not the most technical person in the world, but I can read. Follow the directions and it is a breeze.
Summary: I usually buy Anything HP. However, HP did not show me a Good Multifunction printer, as I tried several of them, without success. Then I ordered the Canon MP980. This Multifunction printer scans easily, copies easily, and prints Great prints.
