Amazing feature, great performance

KRISTOPHER L., Newegg
12 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this product on the black Friday deals section. (Paid $99 shipped). I've owned previous Canon printers and knew the great print quality would be there. However, I was skepital about the ink usage reading some of the other reviewers comments.
  • Pros: * Features * Ease of use * Included film scanner (which I guess goes with features) * Very Low noise when printing scanning * Wireless works amazing, even at far end of house * Included software is easy to use and very in depth * Included documentation to assemble easy to understand * Low ink con...
  • Cons: * No sheet bed scanner (for when I'm scanning a 10 pg doc) * Size (not horribly massive, but it is quite large)

Slick Printer

John A., Newegg
8 January 2011
  • Summary: Free shipping and low price and it arrived a day early.
  • Pros: Large display, intuitive controls and software, excellent print quality including photos. Rated 4-star because nothing is perfect.
  • Cons: Expensive ink but most similar printers seem to be comparable. Have ordered some after market cartridges at less than half price. Will report on results later. I wonder why it has two black cartridges?

Eats ink cartridges for fun

Bao N., Newegg
22 December 2010
  • Summary: Do not buy. You'll cry at how much ink it uses.
  • Pros: Its wireless mode works.
  • Cons: This printer cleans its heads all the time. Turn on the printer it cleans heads. Turn off the printer it cleans heads. Print half a page of stuff it cleans heads. It's now complaining that I'm low on cyan and magenta. I've only been printing black and white!! Absolute rip-off. Entering the wirele...

Good printer but drinks ink

David L., Newegg
15 October 2010
  • Summary: Newegg delivered on time. No complaints here!
  • Pros: Works well as a printer, produces good quality scans of slides, installed easily on a USB port of a Windows XP machine. I would rate the printer with 4-5 eggs if it weren't for the ink problem.
  • Cons: I do not use the printer often. Most of the things I print are text pages in black. I have printed less than 300 sheets in the two months I have owned the printer and the large ink tank for black ink is almost empty. Why? Because the printer cleans its heads one or more times whevern I turn it on...

Good printer

Jeremy M., Newegg
1 September 2010
  • Pros: Good printer, quality pictures, scans, print off's. Quick delivery as usual with Newegg. Price point was good, needed a good all in one and this fit the bill nicely.
  • Cons: Sucks ink pretty heavily. Dont turn it off and on. When it comes on it cleans the heads and just wastes ink. Took away one egg due to the ink usage.

Canon MP 99-

James B., Newegg
5 August 2010
  • Pros: This is an excellant all in one printer. I purchased it to a replace an MP610. The photo prints are super, much better than the 610. Better print quality must be due to the gray ink which was not present on the 610. I don't see any excessive ink usage as stated by other reviewers. Ink usage is ab...
  • Cons: None so far

  • Summary: I have had an MX-860 in my office over the last year, and that printer rocks. I bought this one for my home, and the quality of the photo prints is even better than my 860. I am very happy with the results I get from both plain paper and photo paper.
  • Pros: Duplex printing, cuts paper use in half. Easy set up Photo prints that look like they came from a lab. Solidly built

Canon PIXMA 990

Richard L., Newegg
30 May 2010
  • Summary: I have a technical degree in electronics and am impressed with the engineering that went into this unit to make it functional and affordable. Also quality ink will get expensive if you want to go print crazy, what would you expect?
  • Pros: I purchased this unit to archive analog film. and and to archive slides. In spite of a hefty rebate offer I defy anyone to find these features at any price. I am very impressed with the color print quality and have been using canon printers (3) over the last 10 years. When compared to ink prices ...
  • Cons: I'm still looking for a auto power off.

Good printer... BUT

Anonymous, Newegg
30 March 2010
  • Summary: This printer makes amazing photos and is good for the office too. Just one problem: extreme ink usage. The people at Cannon should have made it so you can turn the ridiculous auto print head clean off. I mean it uses ink when you aren't even using it.
  • Pros: -Prints very good pictures -Scans/copies in quality almost identical to original -auto duplexer -memory card reader that accepts pretty much all types of cards -large LCD display -lower paper tray -wireless
  • Cons: -small ink cartridges -extremely high ink usage -auto-cleans print heads which uses even more ink -no way to change auto-head cleaning -scanning/copying sometimes cuts off part of document
