Not Good

Anonymous, Canon
15 April 2014
  • Conclusion: I got this printer for Christmas 2012. It worked good until about a month or so ago. I went to scan something for school, and the printer wouldn't scan. There was a pop up saying there was a document in ADF. I swear to you, there was no document in the entire printer. I am not allowed to do anything on the printer until this alert is gone.
  • Pros: easy to use
  • Cons: Slow Print Speed, unreliable

beware

  • Conclusion: this product is unacceptable. I spent 2 days to install the software for the scanner. the software is a mess...no help from on-line manual. box has missing parts.,AND i got a broken cd scanning takes more steps & needs the same answers over & over...user specifications you have entered as defaults don't take,,, even if the sw was good, this printer is SLOW there is a long wait before you can start to scan.... takes 3 minutes to scan 1 page..

You get what you pay for....

Chris M. Cone, Amazon

  • Summary: I was a senior in college last year, and large papers were the norm. Eventually the Engineering computer lab was always full and the printer was down, empty, or out of ink most of the time. I reluctantly decided to save a lot of hassle, stress, and uncertainty and buy a printer. Well, it lasted less than a year. I know that paying 100 for a printer is just asking for trouble; i'd never seen a good printer at this price range.

Easily the Worst Printer I have Ever Used

Captain Dunsel, Canon
11 October 2013
  • Conclusion: 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.) BIG mistake. This has been the worst printer I have ever used in 35 years in IT - and I have seen some real duds. It has endless problems with ink smearing, mis-feeds, poor software, irritating pop-ups and lousy network support.
  • Cons: Difficult to use, unreliable, Flimsy Construction, endless jamming, alignment problems

Baaaaad!

Meli, Amazon

  • Summary: I had high expectations for this printer which were not met. The pictures where never as on ewould expect from a Canon and it suddenly stopped printing straight. I tried everything I found to fix it but nothing worked so I ended up having to buy another model. It might have been a singularity, ut my experience with this printer was bad.

Not a reliable printer!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 August 2013
  • Summary: I've had this printer for a while now, hoping it would just get better some how. The printer is constantly disconnected from my WiFi, and I have to manually reconnect by inputting my long WiFi password in just about everyday when I use it. I don't know if it is just my printer specifically, (defective maybe) but I would never buy this printer again. I liked that it was a multifunctional printer, but it is definitely NOT worth the hassle that it has been giving me.
