Summary: Great printer! I really like its design. The feeder is pretty slow, but alright. Its speed of printing is pretty fast in color and black and white. I don't like the scanning program. The ink is ok. I love the price, I paid $120. Set up was easy. It prints photos on photo paper is very high quality and faster than most other printers.
Pros: set up was fairly easy more options than i need at the moment for a great price ($100) no software compatibility issues so far print quality better than i expected ink not much more than i was paying for my previous hp printer
Cons: it is larger than i wanted in a printer - taking up more desk space but i can deal with this...
Summary: I bought this printer as a backup for my older Canon MP610 I paid $69 a special price from Buy.com thru Ebay. The only disapointments are the cost of ink. It's not quiet printing & as fast as my MP610, but I'm not complaining the price makes up for it. It a fun printer and I like it even with it's short comings. Between work & home I used Brother,Canon,HP & Lexmark. I find that Canon printers are the best printers.
Good value for the money, but I would have done some things differently

Summary: I bought this printer to replace a Lexmark that had gone south. It seems to be slower than its precedessor but the speed is good overall. I do like the fax and the auto-feed but Canon could have done a better job on the duplex printing. The Lexmark automatically did a duplex, with the Canon I have to reinsert the pages manually - but at least it duplexes! In spite of the comparisons, I do like the printer and probably would buy it again.
Superb value for price paid; would definitely recommend.

Summary: I bought it because of an article/chatter I read about it being sometimes cheaper to just buy a new printer than purchase the ink to some printers (as I already own a printer that is packed somewhere). This faxer/printer/copier did the trick. For a very nominal fee I upgraded the old printer that I always neglected to get new cartridges for. I made sure that ink for this particular model is cheap (it is). I like that it has an USB slot for easy handling of scans.
Summary: Easy to set up and easy to use. Great print quality. Only downside - documentation claims that this printer works with Windows 2000. After several hours of searching, I'm pretty sure that the oldest drivers are for Windows XP.
