Summary: It's a pretty good printer for the price that include features that i need: fax and ADF. to my disappointment, it CANNOT AirPrint, and the photo quality is poor. I could live with the slowness and noise. I know I shouldnt expect much photo quality from an all-in-one. But my late Dell V515W's photo quality was much better, and I didnt even like it. So may have to return it just to get one that AirPrints and slightly better photo printing.
Summary: No problem...came on time...instruction manual not geared to the technically challenged like I. Fax not connected yet. Other functions work. Quality of pix copied from computer very poor. Wireless feature works very well. Bottom line: product is inexpensive but seems to work adequately so OK for light duty. I was not disappointed...hope it lasts!
Summary: I have an Iphone, Ipad, and an old mac running OS X 10.4.11 . I got the printer to set up fine. I could print anything I wanted with the computer hooked up to the printer. I tried to set it up to be wireless and I am having a hard time getting my old computer to print with the WiFi. it is driving me crazy. I did how ever get my I phone to print photo wirelessly with the app Cannon iEEPP . So that is good. BUT this printer does not have or support Airprint.
Summary: No doubt that this printer is a loss leader for the manufacturer. It's a great value if you just want to scan stuff, and print something once in a long while. Then you realize that you're basically paying for a piece of technology that will hook you into buying ink cartridges. Small ink cartridges. With colors that you may or may not need. A month or two later, I've printed very modestly (or maybe that's just in my head) and now I'm looking at buying ink.
Summary: Difficult WIFI setup, called Canon tech support finally got up and running in an hour+ with their help after many failed attempts. You may need to connect printer to network manually first via on-screen setup menu then run the setup disc. It is quite loud when printing and there is no back light to see control panel in the dark. But for my modest printing needs it's worth the trouble and expense. It seems well built for a all-in-one unit at this low price point.
Not XP 64 bit supported -but you can get it to work.
30 August 2011
Summary: We're all aware of the merits - price, it prints. Here's my gripes: Not XP 64bit supported. I erroneously read Canon's own specs as it being supported - their site said '...XP (x64)' If you make the same mistake I did go here:[...] - this driver worked on my XP 64bit machine. Its ridiculous that companies like Canon don't at least supply the drivers to run on XP 64bit even if they don't support it - this usually a change of one line in the registry. I've done it myself.
Summary: This machine prints beautifully. The wireless feature picks and chooses when it wants to work and the bluetooth has NEVER connected to my iPhone. As a printer, I'm impressed. As for the additional features I PAID FOR - not so much.
Summary: This is not a good printer. It's pretty noisy, it freezes often, and it doesnt work very well. This printer often doesn't react when you press "Print" on the computer, and often when you press a button on it, it also doesn't react. For instance, when you press "Stop" it doesn't stop printing. You have to shut down the printer so it does stop printing. I won't recommend thi printer to anyone, because it doesn't work very well.
Summary: You can tell a lot about the product when you pull it out of the box. Does it feel solid? Do the parts fit? Are the edges finished? Taking this printer out of the box, everything about it felt cheap. However, once I got it set up it did look pretty good. So long as you don't start picking it up or feeling around the edges, it gives the impression of a decent quality product. The documentation is a nightmare. It refers to a "network installation cable".
