Summary: This product works well. I has lasted me for years which is more that any other printer that I have owned. The ink is a bit pricey, but all ink is pricey. The ink is easy to find. I buy mine at Sam's Club. The only drawback that I can see is that it has a fairly large footprint. It takes up a lot of space on your desk. Otherwise it is a perfect printer for the home office.
Excerpt: I have had this printer close to a year and love it. I bought it to finally have a copier at home along with a printer that didn't have paper feeding issues. This printer has been very reliable. It prints, copies, scans, and also faxes. I have not needed the fax, but everything else works great. Clean easy scanning. Print quality is excellent for a home printer, especially at this price. I've never had the paper jam or other mechanical issues.
Excerpt: I love this printer! I originally bought it for around $50 from Walmart and it has been such a great printer. I've had it for about a year and a half now. I print a lot of coupons and I love that I can turn off the color and only print black and white. It has software that came with it and it's so easy to use and customize to how you want it.
Excerpt: I was very surpirised by all that this printer does. It works great with my computer. It does run a little slow when you change from one thing to another ( copy to scan or print to copy) but otherwise it is a great printer for the money.
Durable workhorse that does great quality color/photos.

Excerpt: Great workhorse of a multi-function. Had mine for over a year now and used heavily for home business. No muss, no fuss - works EVERY time. Cartridges are a little steep, as with all machines now, and ink saver function does help with no loss of quality on printing. Scanner does a beautiful job of reproducing any photo or document (hard to differentiate copy from original at times!). TRUE, TRUE, TRUE color reproduction.
This reliable printer is quick and easy and very inexpensive! A+

Excerpt: This Canon MX300 is by far the best printer I have ever owned (and that is alot of printers). I have had this printer for over a year now and I have discovered that it is very quick and easy and does everything I need and or want it to do. It can even be used as a fax machine copier or scanner. It is worth every penny I paid to buy this incredible machine. It is extremely reliable and has yet to fail me to this day.
Excerpt: This was a good find. I don't know much about printers. I am all about things that are basic and easy to use. This Cannon is bulky, so make sure you have room for it. The cartridges are easy to install, and I recently found out very easy to refill which will save quite a bit of money. A refill kit for each cartridge is less than the cost of 1 black cartridge. I have printed plain documents, coupons, greeting cards, stamps, and many other projects.
Summary: I got the Canon MX300 about 6 months ago, and used it for only about a month before packing it up and having to move. At the time, it printed great, although setup was a little bit of a hassle with the cords included not quite being long enough, and the software is bloated, but not as much as say Lexmark. Once setup, it worked like a dream, scanning, faxing and printing with ease. Even on normal quality, the prints are excellent and very true to life.
Summary: I received this printer for free when I purchased my Mac early in 2008. All in all, works exactly as one would expect with both my 1) Mac and 2) PC with XP, then Windows 7. Easy set up and no problems printing. Issues to keep in mind: 1) Not networkable . I have to separately plug into any computer I want to use it with. 2) As with any inkjet printer, the ink will smear or run if you get it wet, even from sweat on a finger, where ink from a laser printer wont.
Summary: This printer is a good value for $69.95. I have had it 3 months and have had no problems. I sent and received some faxes and it worked fine. I have read the fax machine has trouble when you have the printer on and your phone rings. I have had no problem with that. I do not leave the printer on a whole lot . May be thats why I did not have that problem some people complained about. The printer makes good color copies. It does a good job of scanning also.
