Excerpt: Received this printer from a vendor as a retirement gift 2 years ago. I am very happy with the Canon MX512. The cartridges (I do use only Canon) last through a full ream of paper. I occasionally print photos on 4x6 glossy stock and I have excellent results.

Summary: Very happy with this printer / scanner / fax! 1st: THE INK LASTS LONGER, AND IF YOU RUN OUT OF COLOR INK YOU CAN STILL PRINT IN BLACK!!!! 2nd: A PAPER JAM IS EXTREMELY RARE AND HAS SO FAR BEEN MY FAULT (sloppy feeding of paper.) I've had it about a year with no problems.

Summary: This printer is NOT compatible with Windows 7. When I used it with Windows XP it worked like a charm but it's been nothing but a nightmare since I had to upgrade to Windows 7. The function buttons on the printer are no longer usable.
