Excerpt: This printer was such a pain to install, it is wireless and could not find the wireless router. I spent lots of time over 2 hours with a tech person from canon and they ended up saying the problem was windows. Called windows and they said the printer did not have the right driver and I had to spend more time downloading drivers that would work. It loses connection way more than my old HP wireless printer. I was just frustrated with the whole process.
Excerpt: Very disappointed in this product: 1. runs out of ink quickly and even before it runs out prints lightly for way too long. 2. It has a viewing screen but for some reason does not show caller ID information. 3. Most seriously, the fax function has totally messed up my phone: in the middle of talking on the phone the call sometimes (but not always) gets disconnected.
Conclusion: Have the printer a couple of weeks now and have no major complains. It took a little longer to set up the WiFi, had to use the USB cable for that but it does connect as designed. The display needs a back light but isn't a major problem using a small flash light. The speed and quality is OK, as expected. Like the idea of designing a printer with print heads as part of the ink cartridge.
Pros: reliable, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
Summary: A warning - if using the multiple page feeder of the fax function, be sure to keep the pages FACE UP. I only learned this by accident after faxing important document over several months that I found out later, were (naturally) never received.
Excerpt: What has happened to printers! The new ones today have too much input control in them and they just take over your computer! I loved my old Lexmark printer, as I could print and change things my way, scan music and send it via e-mail etc. I bought a Epson about 6 months ago and it has issues already of not printing black, which was the second Epson that mal-functioned that way over time!
Excerpt: I am in the PC business and I have set this computer up for several customers. It does it all and it does it well. For the money, you cannot beat it. As a bonus, it has a simple and relatively inexpensive 2 cartridge system.
