Summary: There isn't much to love, or disagree about this printer. We've had it for a while now, and it's worked as advertised. The only bit that I'd like improved is support for cloud printing so I can print from anywhere, including my phone and tablets. Also, Canon could do a lot of things to improve its own printing app for Android. It's horrendous. The printer & scanner itself, pretty reliable for the kind of moderate use we put it through.
Summary: The Canon PIXMA MX885 All-In-One Colour Photo Printer has a multitude of uses. As is usual with products that insist on providing manuals on line, the indexing and referencing is boringly tedious.
Great printer, huge range of options, but quite fiddly and takes an age to boot up.

Summary: I could quite easily leave this review with just the words in the title above, which pretty much sums up what I think. I've always used Canon printers from simple inkjet printers to these larger multi-functionals. I do so not because of blind misplaced faith that they are the best, but because it's what I'm used to and have always found them relatively easy to use. When you buy this device, be prepared for a little bit of a fiddly setup.
Summary: A good looking piece of kit, looks and feels sturdy and stylish. I found the instruction book a bit annoying. Every page is printed in several languages so usually you're only reading the top few lines before turning the page again. Perhaps not a big issue, but it could have been printed in sections and been more manageable.
Summary: It does everything very well but the ink does not last long and costs a lot to replace. Canon has made it very hard to fit a ciss by not leaving much room above the cartridges for the ink pipes. Compatible cartridges or refilling is proberbly the way to go unless you don't print much. The cartridge ink monitor chips can be bypassed when using refilled cartridges which show as empty.
Pros: Good Quality results & looks good
Cons: very expensive and small capacity cartridges
Summary: Generally happy with printer which does all it says. Main sticking points have been with the duplex function which does not allow borderless double sided printing something we have found useful in the past with our previous printer. Not an insurmountable problem but just requires a different way of working. Wi-fi works OK but have had some trouble getting the printer to discover networked PCs & Mac when wanting to scan to PC.
Excerpt: "...i installed the printer the Canon Solution menu was very easy to use, it allowed me to quickly print of my documents and allowed me to use the scanner through the solution menu even if i wasn't wired to the printer; it all worked when using the printer wirelessly . To set the printer up wirelesly all you need to do is set the connect the printer to your network and connect the computer to the network!The interface was quite easy to understand the ...
Summary: The printer performs well and is all I hoped for with a machine in this price bracket. The build quality is good and the spearance is pleasing. Print and copy quality is good and the scanner performs well and operates satisfactoraly with Omnipage. In conclusion I am pleased with my purchase.
Summary: As a business we need a good all round machine especially for scanning and also for the printing of professional documents. We have our Canon MX885 wired into our network and it does seem quite slow to respond to an instruction to print. Thereafter however, it prints quite quickly and the results for both black and white documents and colour documents are quite pleasing. We don't really print any photos so I can't speak for this aspect.
Summary: Alles in Allem ist diese Drucker Scanner usw. Kombi absolut top, bei Druck und Scanqualität sowie Geschwindigkeit. Problemloses Installieren im WLAN auch für Laien. Einziges Manko, das mir aufgefallen ist, sind die sehr kleinen Tintentanks und der hohe Preis für Ersatzpatronen. Durch Verwendung von Nachbaupatronen, können die Kosten etwas verringert werden.
