Summary: After about a week and a half of use (a few pages of text, a single photo and a couple of scans) the unit died. Wouldn't power on. Amazon let me return it for a replacement, which arrived the next day (five stars, Amazon). I'm giving the printer the benefit of the doubt that I just had a defective unit... The one photo I printed was spectacular. The scans were good.
Summary: My wife and I bought this printer yesterday. It's setup was fairly straight forward until we tried loading the supplied driver/software disk on our two x64 Win 7 laptops. It kept hanging up while trying to load the disk. After a few attempts on both machines we went to Canon's official site and downloaded the specific drivers/software for x64 Win 7. They downloaded quickly and without fuss.
Summary: I purchased this printer over the phone without going to a store to see it in person first. This item is replacing a 5 year old all in one HP printer. I thought upgrading to a new printer meant it would be more compact in size, but I must say, it is larger than my HP. Overall, the machine operates seamlessly with the exception of when I first set it up. My computer was having a hard time synching wirelessly to it, resulting in a 45 minute call to tech support with Apple.
Summary: I just wanted to know a few things (all these specs listed on Amazon's page, but so little info there!!!) WTF?: 1) Aftermarket ink available yet? YES, and it's reasonably priced, just like my old MP530 I gave to my parents, worked great, never let me down and I learned before that, Canon printers are the best in the industry (at least compared to HP and Epson) with cheap ink available, prints great, why buy a printer that will give you headaches with costs, or clogged...
Summary: Using this device via WiFi with three Apple computers I have had no problems. Everything installed correctly on the first try on all three MACs. Ink usage seems reasonable so far. This device replaced a 7 year old Canon S900 photo ink jet which served me well. Print quality is good, driver gives lots of options. I am very pleased with this printer on my MACs. On my PC, as a printer, it works great. Scanning on the PC....does not exist.
Excerpt: Printing quality is very good, on both prints and copies, and can duplex. It scans well, from flat bed or from document feeder. It's not very fast for anyone used to the speed of devices intended for office use, and the paper cassette doesn't hold much. However, the manual paper feeder accommodates several different paper sizes and types. The documentation is sometimes a little hard to understand.
Summary: I love this printer..It prints out great pictures if you load the memory card into it..Didn't print well if I printed from my computer for pictures.. Printes 4x6 photos in about 15 seconds...Very fast..Crisp and clean pictures.. The scanner is amazing! Very good scanner so very good copier! Its easy to setup, love the wireless.. My only downfall is the fax.
