Canon printer is good if you print a lot of photos
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This mx700 canon is great if you print a lot of photos and are looking for quality over price. For the average user and in this economy I would assume most would choose price. This unit prints exceptional but when it comes time to purchase ink it is VERY PRICEY!!! Not only is all ink expensive but expecially so for this printer it takes over 4 ink cartriges and cost is ridiculus but more importantly if your out of only magenta and just want to print a black and white...
Pros: Good copy quality. Relatively fast. Good scanning capability. Quick faxing.
Cons: Uses way too much ink and says ink tank is empty long before it really needs to be replaced. Now, after only 14 months 'ink absorber is full' and needs to be taken to a Cannon repair place making it useless.
Pros: Document printing and scanner seem to work ok. First printer I have evere owned.
Cons: Cost of ink. Poor quality of photo prints. I was very disappointed with quality of prints. Blacks weren't very black. Tried various combinations of things that couold be adjusted such as contrast etc. None worked effectively.
