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.
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.
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).
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).
Summary: This printer does everything well, as far as I'm concerned. Pictures come out beautiful. However, this is a BIG printer. I didn't realize how much space it would take up, so be prepared to make room.
Summary: I bought this printer from Amazon and everything's been great. Receiving it ahead of schedule and at a good price. The printer has performed flawlessly so far, copying, printing and scanning are real quick and it was very easy to install. Well, that doesn't go for setting up on a network but, like all the earlier reviews, it took some doing. I know I didn't follow the steps to a "T" but still got it done in a reasonable amount of time.
Summary: The printer, scanner, and fax functions all work as advertised. This printer isn't tiny, but with ADF, two input trays, and flatbed scanner, it's not that huge, either. Double sided printing does take time - but necessary to prevent bleed through - this isn't a laser printer. Dropping in a document and getting a PDF on any of the network-connected printers with just a few simple button pushes is terrific!
Summary: I have been through a Lexmark and 2 HP printers (both over $300). This is the best printer ever and it was less then $200! Very easy to install, I installed with no help and I do not consider my self that techy savvy. Easy to use, fast and the color is great. The best price I found was at Amazon.
Excerpt: "...- this is my second Canon all in one, its here to replace the slightly older MP750 as I do a lot of wireless laptop work and wanted a printer with network printing. I bought this 2 weeks ago and these are my thoughts and experiences so far: The initial setup is quite easy, the printer comes with a big A3 sheet with idiot pictures and text making the install easy enough. Its a little time consuming though as it takes a while to initialise - mainly ...
Pros: Finally an all in one with network support from Canon
Cons: Reasonably bulky with some very poor setup software
