Summary: This has been the most reliable printers I have ever had. Its a power printer. I have had several Dell printers and each one broke after 1 year. I have had this printer 3 years and it keeps on ticking. Prints clearly and fast. Ink is reasonably priced. I have scanned and faxed many times. I would have to say its easier to send a Fax then receive one. Also it does not have any wireless capabilities (which I do not need).
Summary: It's all around the best printer I have owned so far. The picture quality is awesome. I love the fact I can print from my kitchen table using my laptop. My son can print from his room without bothering me, big PLUS!!! Color ink does go quick but if you don't use color much then your okay. Print fast, copies are beautiful. I haven't faxed yet but I'm sure I will have no problem. I would recommend this product to all my friends and family.
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.
Pros: The scanning function works but nothing else.
Cons: Manuals are poorly written and incomplete. Diagrams are useless. i've installed on my wi fi network correctly since I could scan to my hard drive. When I print from my computer the paper goes through as expected but has nothing on it.
