Easily the Worst Printer I have Ever Used

Captain Dunsel, Canon
11 October 2013
  • Excerpt: We bought this printer as a desktop unit for one of our executives, to replace a Pixma 870 which had worn out over several years of use. (Unfortunately the 870 seems to be no more.)

  • Cons: Difficult to use, unreliable, Flimsy Construction, endless jamming, alignment problems
