Excerpt: The Canon MX860 is a color inkjet all-in-one printer. I've never had an all-in-one printer before, but now that I do, I wouldn't be able to survive without it. This printer not only provides excellent quality prints in color or black-and-white, but it also has the capability to act as a fax, scanner, and copier. The MX860 has full wireless capability and a built-in print server.
Excerpt: I really like my printer. I use it a lot, for printing, copying, scanning, and faxing. It is pretty fast and the quality is good. I buy refilled, generic toner and it is not too expensive. There are 5 different toner cartridges and they seem to have a decent lifespan. The only problem is set up. I have had to re set up the printer for wireless more than once.
5 printers later, the Cannon MX860 is th best of all.

Excerpt: I bought the Cannon MX860 Wireless All-in-One Printer because I needed a printer that would do it all and allow me to print without being hooked up to a cable. I use to run a business and every time I needed an invoice I had to run upstairs to my office and print from my computer. Once I got the Cannon MX860 my life was easier.
Excerpt: I bought this printer for general use at home. I didn't need it to print out anything with professional quality or anything. One of the reasons I picked this printer is because it was an all in one printer. It has a fax, scanner and port for your camera storage to download photos. The fax has worked perfectly and the scanner has decent quality. My only complaint has to do with the ink.
Excerpt: As an at-home printer, the Canon MX860 does a great job. I've had this printer for a year now and I've never had the printer jam. It prints clearly and is smart about pulling only one piece of paper at a time. I've used this to print my baby announcements and envelopes with no problem. I've scanned, copied, and utilized the wireless features. LOVE IT! Everything it does it terrific and I love the duplex copying and printing. That being said, there were some cons as well.
Excerpt: I was looking for a wireless all in one printer that could install to my network. It was fairly easy to setup on both XP and windows 7. I did not upgrade correctly so I had to start from scratch after I upgraded to Windows 7. Since it is wireless, there is a delay when printing large docs, but I've never lost connection. I use the scanner pretty often and have had no problems. It also has a built-in fax machine I use for sending faxes.
Excerpt: I purchased the Canon MX860 after my old Dell all-in-one scanned and printed it's last paper of its life. Its massive size was one of the first things I noticed about this grey beast. Even though the Canon MX860 is large, it's a pretty nice looking and modern all-in-one. I was very happy with how easily it was able to connect with my wireless network. It was also very nice how it had a USB and flash memory port directly on the printer.
Summary: I bought this mainly for a home Fax Machine and it works great. It was very easy to set up and use. Connecting to my wireless network was also a breeze. It does print pics pretty good but is slower than a stand alone printer although quality is about even. Scanner is also slower than a stand alone unit and lacks some features but overall works OK.
Summary: The Canon MX860 is pretty nice. For an all in one, this one is very stylish and reliable. I am however, a little disappointed with the print speed (black). I thought it would be a lot faster for basic documents. Overall it is nice to have the fax option as well as the separate back tray for printing photos. My favorite part is definitely the wireless print convenience.
Summary: The printer works well, warm up and response to commands is slow. The out put speed at fast print is nearly 5 sec per page. The paper tray for legal is different from the letter sized paper and switching from legal to standard is not executed by the unit with ease. Quality of print is good, have not tried it with photo print or other specialty formats. I like the double sided printing. I wish I could get the unit to automatically default to printing last page first.
