Conclusion: nice system we don't print a lot so the cartridge with printer head is ideal. photos have printed out great and the network and wireless printing allow easy access from all the PCs and tablets in house
Excerpt: I bought the MX452 as an update to my current PIXMA MX870 figuring it would perform as good, or better, than my current one - especially since it only uses 2 ink cartridges. I found the 452 to be very noisy and annoying in that it sounds like a grinding machine with all its spurts of setting up before it prints. Returned it to STAPLES and received a refund.
Excerpt: When I first bought this I was a little leary because I`ve never had an all in one printer like this. Let me tell you that this machine is a quality piece of equipment and I`m sorry I did`nt get one sooner. It has all the bells and whistles but at a fraction of the cost of a high end machine.
Pros: Long Cartridge Life, Sharp Tones & Colors
Excerpt: I decided to look for another all-in-one printer when my older HP all-in-one networked printer started to act "funny". (lost wireless radio and the print cartridges cost over $70.00). The reviews on the new HPs I looked at were less than flattering so I broadened my search. A friend has a Canon and it has been super reliable, so I looked at the choices..I looked at all prices from $70 to $250.
Excerpt: I purchased this all- in- one printer recently and am pleased with the performance. I did have a problem setting the printer up but called the hotline and received the help I needed. I would recommend this all- in- one Cannon wireless printer for all home use. It was shipped promptly and received in excellent condition.
Pros: Dries Quickly, Easy to Replace, Sharp Tones & Colors
Excerpt: Set up was easy and more convenient paper placement takes up less room. Ink cartridges are easily to put in place, and only two to work with. Wires are all on one side. Nice to have one machine to copy, scan, print, scan, and Fax Prints pictures to keep scrapbook and cards.
Pros: Clean Replacement, Easy to Replace, Long Cartridge Life, Long Lasting Color, Sharp Tones & Colors
Conclusion: WE SET THE PRINTER UP, SET UP WIRELESS CONNECTION WITH OUR DESKTOP UPSTAIRS . IT HAS THE DVD ACCESS UP THERE. THE PRINTER WORKS ONLY FOR THAT COMPUTER . BUT-TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CONNECT IT TO OUR LAPTOP DWNSTAIRS .I MEAN THATS WHY WE BOUGHT IT WIRELESS RT? TO USE IT WITH BOTH COMPUTERS IN OUR HOUSE BK AND FORTH ETC ETC..WITHOUT WIRES..BUT THE LAPTOP DWNSTRS DOESNT HAVE DVD ACCESS .
Pros: it looks good
Cons: it needs an online program you can access, to replace needing a dvd so, people can set up the printer on any computer?
