Print quality disappointing

Kenneth H., Newegg
3 August 2011
  • Pros: Installation and setup were easy. Scanning worked well.
  • Cons: Printouts started to be smudged and distorted after a while, as if the printer heads were misaligned. Running the alignment and head cleaning processes didn't solve the problem. Very disappointing.

Canon Pixma MX780

steve f., Newegg
28 June 2011
  • Summary: Canon supposedly is known for quality; now I have to rethink this. Honestly, don't pay more than $75 for this unit. It also has a somewhat cheap appearance.
  • Pros: Does duplex scanning quite well. Included software is fairly decent and comprehensive. There is a plethora of menu choices.
  • Cons: Poor print quality, that is, once it starts printing! I just submitted a print job, and here i am, 15 minutes later waiting for the job to start.

User Review

Diederik Z., Newegg
10 June 2011
  • Summary: Also own a MX860 which does what you need it to do when you need it. The MX860 ink use is less than other printers we have had once you set your printing parameters correctly. We bought the MX870 because of the excellent experience we have had with the MX860.
  • Pros: It works well when you need it to. It replaces an HP all-in-one which has been very unreliable.
  • Cons: none

589 scans over 1 afternoon

Michael L., Newegg
29 May 2011
  • Summary: I ran 589 scans in one afternoon before I decided to write this review. It feeds paper well, took all of the odd-ball sizes (through the ADF) a few on the Platen. Software is flawless; a misfeed will get deleted from the queue and it allows you to place it right back where it came fom on the feeder.
  • Pros: All-in-one for real, great software for general printer usage.
  • Cons: Slow on the take-off but okay once it starts going, reason for the 4 stars instead of 5.

Works - Everytime

Thomas T., Newegg
16 April 2011
  • Pros: MAC Pro w Snow Leopard & HP Elitebook Laptop w/64bit Win7: Works every time. Auto feeder for scanning is excellent, Duplex scans automatically. Have software for MX860 at work with separate software loaded for that also; no conflicts. I would buy it again without hesitation.
  • Cons: The price fell $20 2 weeks after I purchased it. Size, it's a little larger than other printers.

Horrible Software

Anonymous, Newegg
12 April 2011
  • Summary: For the size of the footprint, this printer has little to show for the space it consumes. It is not fast enough to justify its duplex capability, unless you happen to be masochistic.
  • Pros: Decent mechanical operation and image processing; also good with just about any color and b/w print task. Not for networking in a busy office, however small the office.
  • Cons: Horribly written software. Slow at the most inconvenient times, as at start-up or just before a rush print. It stops and does diagnostics for no rhyme or reason, and it does diagnostics painfully slow. Try shutting if off when thunderstorms or other emergencies threaten, and it will take forever ...
