Great all in one printer add the refillable Ink Cartridges makes it better
2 July 2013
Summary: It is a all in one printer, i have used the mx700 for about 4 yrs with no prob. and was able to get the refillable Ink Cartridges for it. So i got the mx870 and bought it off of EBAY. I allso got refillable Ink Cartridges form EBAY. And it works great, now when i run low on ink i just fill it up and keep printing. The printer dose a great job, I would buy this printer again.
Excerpt: We're a family who doesn't buy anything electronic before researching the heck out of it and scouring around for the best deal. We bought this one at Staples because a) they have price matching, b) they offer a $50 credit for turning in your old printer to be recycled and c) we're members of their rewards program and had credits to spend. Having a wireless printer is wonderful if you work primarily from a laptop/netbook like we do.
Excerpt: I recently purchased this printer to replace my slightly older Lexmark printer. I am so happy that I did. I checked all the reviews and comparisons on line and found that consistently this printer was a top choice. Now I see why. The printer arrived packaged nicely and had all of the neceaary cordas, manuals and disks. It was easy to set and easy to install. I opted to hook it directly to my router as needed to be able to print from multiple compters.
Summary: This is my second MX870 Canon Printer. I wanted my husband to have a printer that had wonderful features, plus same cartridges. I've had mine for a couple of years and he's had his about a month and is already sold on the ability to print good color pictures, scan, copy, and fax. And we have used all.
Summary: I purchased this printer because my old Canon printer's print head had gone bad and this model used the same ink cartridges as the old one. I had several extra ink cartridges on hand for the old one and didn't want to waste them. The new printer works fine and does more things than the old one did. I have been very pleased with this printer.
Cons: Refuses to recognize new black ink cartridges. Requires turning off machine, then it recognizes the cartridge. Can be very slow in printing faxes. I have not been able to figure out how to make the scanner work...I am going to buy a different grand.
