Pros: Its cheap. I see Canon went up in prices on their ink since i last bought ink My old Canon something was wrong with it. I pretty much didnt use it in years. That model was better built than this one. The old one was also quicker and text was sharper.
Cons: I barely used it and the black ink is already out.
Summary: Reason for purchasing printer. 1) solid user reviews, 2) price, 3) low cost of printer cartridges, which can be refilled at Costco. Printer was easy to set up and has performed satisfactorily.
Summary: -It won't scan without ink. Why would it need ink in order to do this? Lame -One printer cartridge costs $20, and I only got around 30 pages printed with that much ink; dries up quick -Won't print in black and white only using the black cartridge only; you need to buy the color one too. -Very klunky thing.
Summary: Canon usually sells superior products. I only use Canon Cameras. This printer has real issues accepting new cartridges. I mean it is a HUGE issue. Pass this buy and upgrade to another with real software that will properly align cartridges after installing. I have owned many a printer.
Summary: I owned an HP before I bought this Canon. I read the reviews before I bought it, most of which were favorable. For those who simply want a wireless printer to print documents, you'll probably like this printer just fine. If you want to copy or scan, I wouldn't choose this printer. The copy quality is poor, unless you adjust the settings to dark. The scan quality is very poor...every photo I scan I have to use my photo editing software to improve the image.
Summary: Canon does not put much effort into making sure there products work after they are bought. Scanner on this printer worked fine in beginning. I had to get my computer reimaged. and there is absolutely no solution to making scanner work again. there code gets integrated into unknown parts of windows and really messes stuff up.
Awesome for small business, wireless and photo printing!

Summary: I bought this printer for its wireless abilities and photo printing but I am LOVING it for my small business as well! Great buy for the the price and amazing quality in structure(not cheaply built)and printing. My photos come out as if I got them from a professional printing place! I can print from all my computers, my laptop, iPod and Phone! Highly recommend!
Summary: I've been a loyal Canon customer for years -- all of my printers over the past 15 years, and a couple of cameras, too. So when my last printer flaked out, I decided to go with another Canon. I originally picked this printer because of the Wi-Fi connectivity, and the fact that it included a scanner. Unfortunately, I feel like I can barely give this printer a passing grade. (And I'm writing this after having one for almost a year...
