OK printer

yzzy444, Ebay
9 October 2012
  • Summary: Quality of prints are good. Good features such as duplex printing and wireless printing. Setup is fairly easy. It is very large and takes up alot of desk space. Price is expensive. It doesn't jam as much as the 860 which I had before. I bought it because they use the same ink and I didn't want to waste the ink I had. Very slow printing. If I didn't have the ink, I would have bought something smaller and less expensive.

"Great scanner but sub-par printer"

hideme666, CNET
4 January 2012
  • Pros: Good ADF (auto document feeder), double-sided scanning, has ethernet networked printing, double-sided printing, cartridges last a long time/efficient use of ink
  • Cons: Drivers are sub-par (confounded by poor Windows (7) printer driver layout/features); often has a wasted first page of a print job; takes up to two minutes for the printer to "wake up" when you're printing to it via ethernet (immediate via USB)

"Great print quality but it's an ink hog"

NancyLou9, CNET
3 October 2011
  • Pros: I know looks shouldn't factor into a decision for a printer but this is a nice looking unit. Prints nice, not too slow, set up for wireless was a breeze. Got this as a replacement for a Brother and I think I like this more for quality.
  • Cons: Runs through the ink pretty quickly. I had an empty black cartridge, changed it and printed 200 pages at the lowest quality to save ink. Didn't matter one bit. Before the documents were done printing, I needed a new black ink cartridge. *SIGH*

  • Pros: Dual sided scanning and photocopying
  • Cons: Confusing menus / capabilities. Never really managed to get WiFi system setup, so only use through USB.

"Cart's don't hold much ink - ink prices very expensive"

scott4991, CNET
23 December 2010
  • Pros: I have had Canon printers for many years, but I'm starting to rebel against Canon. The price if the ink is crazy.. too expensive. After buying 2 sets of refills, at $%40 each, I might as well buy a new MX 870 printer for $140 at Costco.
  • Cons: Give me reasonable printer cart. replacement prices. I see HP's are much better on ink use, about 2X as long. I went to Canon due to individual ink carts, but now many have them.. I will look around closely before I buy another Canon.

"Nice speed, good color, but weak printing quality"

pie_panned, CNET
16 December 2010
  • Pros: The color is nice on this machine. It uses ink conservatively but does a great job with saturation. Speed is good too and functions are easy to understand. It was literally plug and play, so that's great for the technologically not-so-savvy.
  • Cons: Printer seems to need a "wake-up page," where it stalls 1/4 of the way through printing it's first sheet. You have to cancel, delete the job from the queue, and start all over. Also, it prints slanted lines and "italic"-looking lines at random.

"Good quality machine, but slow print speed."

energy899, CNET
29 July 2010
  • Pros: Does what it is advertised to do fairly well. Versatile. Quiet. OEM ink is costly, as it is with most machines. After-market ink is available. It has full wifi- everything can be done from a wireless computer. Some things are tricky to set up,
  • Cons: First page printing is slow. High quality printing is very slow.High quality printing is needed for many things (where standard worked on previous printers). Regular printing is also slow. First print 30- 40 seconds. 6 pages in about 2 minutes.

Nach 23 Monaten gestorben jedoch wieder repariert.

J.P, Amazon
18 October 2013
  • Summary: Ist jetzt unser 3. Canon Drucker, aber eine Lebensdauer von unter 2 Jahren ist für mich nicht akzeptabel.Gibt plötzlich während des Druckvorgangs den Geist auf. Ich vermute ein defektes Netzteil. Macht keinen Mucks mehr. Dass die Bedienung umständlicher wurde als beim Vorgänger, der Druckvorgang länger dauert, daran kann sich ein Home-User gewöhnen aber nicht einmal 2 Jahre... War wohl mein letzter Canon jetzt.

Fast gelungen.

  • Summary: Drucker geliefert, installiert, beim Patronenausrichten hängengeblieben. Hat sich nicht überzeugen lassen, weiter zu machen. Nach einiger Zeit konnte ich Drucken, aber Scannen, Kopieren und Faxen nicht möglich, da automatischer Blatteinzug defekt war. Rückabwicklung. Problemlos.
