Love this printer!

  • Excerpt: This Canon MX850 All-in-One Printer is the best ink jet printer I have ever owned. It prints two-sided, converts to booklets, has memory card capability, scans great, faxes well, copies great, and is a total work horse. I like the separate ink tanks, but dislike the fact that it does go through ink pretty quickly. The cartriges, however, are fairly reasonably priced. It has a paper cartridge that I only recently took the time to find and fill and works great.

Very Good Printer

  • Excerpt: I'm very pleased with the Canon MX850.  I like this printer for the all-in-one status.  I only spent a few hundred dollars for this unit and should have went with laser.  Don't get me wrong, it's awesome.  The prints are of very high quality, just not laser quality.  If you are an "ink" person...... go for it, if not, then stick with laser technology.  I use it for office and home, so it's perfect.

The canon MX850 is a great all-purpose printer!

  • Excerpt: This is a great printer for many reasons: Pros: It's very, very fast! The duplexing time can be very much reduced by shortening the time that it waits for the ink to dry (it still doesn't smear). It's VERY easy to use. If there's an error or something, it provides you with detailed, non-confusing directions to fix it. It does borderless, glossy photo prints beautifully! The software that comes with the printer is nice (and Mac-compatible).

Great do-it-all printer.

  • Excerpt: I got this printer, the Canon MX850, as a birthday gift. It replaced an old printer that came free with my computer. This workhorse really does everything, and does it well. Some features that I love are automatic duplex printing (it will do double-sided all by itself, no more stopping to flip the sheets around) and a self-feed scanner (you can just give it a stack of papers to scan and it will feed them through, like an office copier does).

"Fax does not automatically answer - user manual no help"

Bobnmeet, CNET
12 December 2010
  • Pros: small, quiet, looks good Works well as DEDICATED fax with DEDICATED fax phone line
  • Cons: eats ink, fax machine DOES NOT AUTO ANSWER after picking up phone and fax tone is coming in like my HP did. The user manual describes TEL Priority Mode where it supposedly answers the line when a fax is detected - not true. Instructions ambiguous.

"An AIO 'face guy' that's not afraid to work"

NaturalStateGuy, CNET
19 July 2010
  • Pros: I like the design, the material quality and the heft of this thing. It's substantial in a way nothing from HP seems to be. Networking the printer was pretty easy once I found the download on Canon's site. Best feature? Bought it for $10 at A.U.
  • Cons: The footprint of this AIO is massive. Prepare to make room for it, but it looks good wherever it's taking up space.

"Really great, low-cost printer for the home office"

rdinan, CNET
27 August 2009
  • Pros: This is a great overall printer/fax/copier for the small home office. I use the printer, fax and scanner the most and have had no problems. In fact, it's been pretty invaluable. It's sleek and attractive, easy to use, and doesn't take up much room.
  • Cons: It sucks ink pretty quickly if you do a lot of color printing. I do graphic design, and it doesn't have good representative proofs for quality for color printing; the ink sinks into the paper.
