The WORST printer I have ever purchased. A huge rip off.
27 April 2012
Summary: I am a grad student. Needless to say, I use my printer a ton - whether it's printing out research articles or my own work. To that end, I know exactly what features I want in a printer and only consider those models that have all of them. With all that said, I can unequivocally say that this is THE BIGGEST RIP OFF OF A PRINTER I HAVE EVER PURCHASED.
Summary: Like some of the other reviewers, I feel like Canon/Amazon pulled the ole switcheroo on me. Printer works fine on heavy Windows/OSX network, but will not print from iPhone or iPads. You have to download a Canon App and that only allows photo prints and scanned prints to be printed wirelessly. So you can scan something that you need to print then turnaround and print it. Awesome! Basically, you can't print out a quick email or webpage directly from the phone.
Summary: Bought the Canon Pixma MX420 in December, and due to hectic schedule, never had a chance to take it out of the box until two weeks ago. Instructions were unnecessarily complicated for setting it up, and had to call my computer guy to help me do it. Have been using it for two weeks, light use, no pictures, for business, and now I am unable to copy, print or fax because the paper feeder keeps jamming! I did buy a new package of paper, and wonder if it's too light weight.
