Summary: I bought this printer not long ago and it has been the biggest waste of money I have ever come across. Its expensive price in initially purchasing the product does not end as you have to purchase new ink cartridges in ridiculously short periods. Most useful advice I can possibly give anyone - "Do not buy this printer" period... The quality of the ink/printer is not of a high standard either. The colors usually come out in weird patterns or bright blotches in some colors.
Cons: The entire printer is an absolute waste of money and time.
Summary: If you think you have too much money but don't have the space for a boat to spend your money on then buy an MP990. This thing just drinks ink. We use it very infrequently and forever replacing ink, which is very expensive if you buy proprietry--oh, and did I mention it has six tanks! For all its good points they just can't offset the excessive ink usage issue. Seriously, don't buy one of these dogs.
Pros: Print quality, easy set up and use, wireless connectivity, slide scanning
Summary: MP stands for eMPty, ink cartridges are always empty! The ink just disappears, they say it evaporates! They say that the printer is always cleanings the heads or something, instead of printing. In truth, the unit actually plays with itself in the middle of a print job, right in front of you! It is at this point that i firmly believe it squirts its ink from the small visible tank to a hidden toilet tank to relieve itself!
Summary: This printer, like a lot in the Canon Pixmar range is a bad quality, cheaply made time bomb. It will spit out a few (how many exactly is like the lottery) okay pictures, but very soon the paper will start to jam, the ink will evaporate and this clunker will become a chain around your neck. You now have a large unusable piece of plastic rubbish that was NOT designed to last. You will be lucky to get a year out of it.
