Summary: Ours completely bit the dust after about 18 months of light use. We got a b200 error message and then the thing turned off forever. I've never had a problem like this with a device that couldn't be fixed after quitting so unexpectedly.
Summary: I could not find a more compact, cheap inkjet printer that cost less than $200, so I bought this behemoth all-in-one. It takes up a lot of space on my desk, so I had to move it onto the top of a mini-file cabinet to have adequate space on my desktop for the large scanner and monitor (& speakers) I...
Summary: This repaced my HP printer which was a piece of junk. It performs well and renders sharp images and brilliant color. And unlike the HP, I don't have to troubleshoot it or constantly clean the ink nozzles. It just works. Canon is on their game.
Summary: I bought this one year ago, it worked for a year then I got the "fatal error" U052 Wrong Printhead Error, for which Canon has no real fix and for which you can not do anything. The recommended course of action does not fix problem and getting new printhead is as expensive as a new printer.
Summary: I purchased this product in 2012 and it died 21 months later. Just plain died. As my computer savvy grandson told me, it's cheaper to buy new printers than the cartridges. Print quality was fine but any product that lasts under two years is a lemon.
Summary: Maybe I haven't upgraded my printer in a while, but printers have always been a hassle to get to just work. It seems like there's always something wrong. This one never seems to have anything wrong, and has exceeded my expectations in terms of features and flexibility. It just works.
