Summary: I read of others with similar problem after a year or so of operation. Must be a design weakness of this machine. After looking at alternatives, I decided to buy another MX700 at an attractive sale price with free shipping, hoping this next one will last longer than a year for me.
Pros: Original setup over network without problems. High quality printing, copying, scanning, etc. Cheap replacement ink cartridges (4 total). Nice interface with computer, including Navigator function.
Cons: Fax machine sometimes answers phone early, even though "phone priority" mode is set. After a little more than a year, printer developed a misalignment that causes horizontal shift in printing in the portrait mode. Not too bad for text (although visible) but terrible for any graphics that include ...
Summary: This would have been a great product except for the excess ink usage and the fact that it died. I can't be certain that the malfunction was due to a product problem, though.
Pros: Good compact construction, network capable, good color and black and white printing quality, network scanning capability, decent fax. This is a good overall printer for the price.
Cons: Had it for just over one year, and for some reason it is dead, though it may have been due to a problem with the power supply. I replaced it with a laser printer. It prints heavy and goes through ink very quickly. If you do a lot of printing, consider another product.
Summary: Do away with the chip and I think Canon would have another winning printer in my mind.
Pros: Nice print quality. Clean. So far works great. Scanner is great. Fax works as expected. I like all the options and features. Nicely priced.
Cons: Ink. Really disappointed with the chip that is needed on each ink well in order for printing to work. There is ink available, cheap, without the chip. You can fake the printer out, but only for so long. Ink with chip is more expensive. there are chip resetters available, but I haven't been able t...
Summary: It was nice to have the front paper feeder option considering the fact that I have a shelve above this printer, which makes it difficult to load paper from the rear feeder slot.
Pros: Nice Styling, good price, decent printout quality. This is my second Canon printer, I upgraded from the MX310 to this unit even though the MX310 worked well, other than it seemed to use a lot of ink!
Cons: The front paper feeder worked exactly One Time! Now it will not Pull paper from the front cartridge, even when I force the settings To pull from the front paper feeder, no go.
Summary: So far, so good. Time will tell........Gave it three eggs just because of the network setup hassles.
Pros: I got if for $99 shipped, so could hardly go wrong. Only had it for a week so far; prints, scans, copies fine. I don't use the fax feature. Quiet machine and, although it has a fairly big footprint, I still gained deskspace since it replaced a scanner and printer.
Cons: The network setup was a nightmare. My machines use XP Home and following the Canon instructions got me nowhere. I wound up going into the LAN maintenance menu (on the machine itself) and resetting it to the default network settings after a couple futile attempts to communicate with the printer. T...
Excerpt: Hallo meine liebe Lesergemeinschaft, Im November letzten Jahres war es dann soweit. Wir mussten unseren HP- Drucker zur Reparatur einschicken. Geschlagene 4 Wochen passierte rein gar nichts und wir wurden immer wieder vertröstet, sogar das zur Verfügung stellen eines Leihgerätes sollte ein Problem...
Pros: genialer Fotodruck, leuchtende Farben, kaum vom Original zu unterscheiden, 4 Kartuschen
Cons: nach 6 Wochen das erste mal in der Reparatur, Faxfunktionen, laut
