Not happy

Printer starved, Canon
14 November 2014
  • Conclusion: I purchased a Cannon MX 922 printer based on how I feel about their cameras. I'm not one to throw someone under the bus, but to be honest, I'm not happy. I didn't like this from intial set it up. Now with a building mound of frustration, I dislike this even more. Like you I expect my printer to work every time. "Constant problems". Today the driver has vanished and can't seem to find one on the Internet?

nothing but problems

joann, Canon
8 August 2014
  • Conclusion: I have had this printer for at least 6 months and constantly have problems. I came on here to update the driver in case that is the problem but that did not help. Before not being able to print at all which is now the wireless printing does not work consistently. I have to turn on and off all the time. To scan you cannot just start scanning.
  • Pros: Small Footprint
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, unreliable

You Get Alot For Your Money At Such A Great Price

Don Tony, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: I purcahsed this to use as a printer, scanner, and fax machine in my home when I'm out of the office. This works so well, and I love that I can connect it via my wireless network. I have had no problems with it, and the printer doesn't use an awful lot of ink when printing. I'm happy with my purchase.

Cheap printer

Derek B., Amazon
9 April 2014
  • Summary: I guess in this price range printers could be treated more like a disposable lighter. I was drawn to this printer because of the ability to print from a mobile device. But I am constantly having problems with the printer being offline, every single time I try to use it. When ever I try t print, I have to physically turn the printer off than back on before I sent something to it to print. Otherwise it won't. It also seemed to gobble through ink very fast.

Except for Noise, Love this Multifunction! But too many decibles when printing or scanning.

Danny Langford, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: The PIXMA blows by previous HP and Lexmark multifunctions away, decent photo printing, very good draft printing, above average but not Laser letter/final draft printing. Very good scanner, and by far the best and easiest scanner software on the market. While it could use better image software, I'm using Photoshop and bypass the included image software. For the price, the best multifuction I've tried.

Love it!

Karen, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: Easy set up, prints from all my wireless devices without a hitch! Scans and copies as expected. I didn't really need the fax... but now that I have it, I do use it occasionally. Great value & quality!

printer is done after only 4 months

Maureen Campbell, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: After 4 months of basic home usage (homework, etc) this printer has a permanent paper jam message. We only used plain white printer paper in the machine and it should not have jammed at all. Now we can't clear the message and therefore can not use it. Going out to buy an HP.

Positive reviews. How is that possible?

hotelbravo, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this printer mainly for the scan function. I doesn't. The Amazon listing says it does. The box says it does. It even has a scan button and a menu to set up scanning preferences. It simply will not scan. Of course I referred to the manual. There is nothing in the manual about scanning - zero, zip, nada. "Using the Machine (Printing/Copying/Faxing)" The word scanning is oddly missing. I would say that it's defective but the word deceptive describes it better.

Slow to print and stopped working after 1/2 a semester

Georgina, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Disappointing. My roommate has a cheaper printer which prints a lot faster and has lasted her 3 years. I have had a lot of difficulty trying to get the printer to read a USB (even with the manual). I gave up on that. I had to purchase a connection cord to be able to physically connect it to my laptop (I cannot use its wifi-printing on the dorm's internet).
