Mauricio Gomes, Amazon

  • Summary: After very light usage the printer now shows a B200 Error and won't function as a printer or scanner. If you search the internet, you see that the B200 error is fairly common after 1-2 years of ownership and is some sort of catch-all error that could indicate any number of problems.

Disappointed. Dreaded B200 error.

Ulfaro, Amazon
6 December 2014
  • Summary: I had this printer for about 2 years and 1 month until I got the well known and dreaded B200 error. I tried every reasonable solution that was publicized on YT and other DIY fix-it sites..but too avail. After what looked like a possible solution, the printer just died and would not even turn on anymore. The printer was casually used and hadn't been in a workhorse environment. I felt it should have lasted longer given the casual use of the printer.

great network printer, network scanning? NOPE

  • Conclusion: I really love this printer as a printer. local scanning and copying are very good. its reasonably easy to install (Windows 8 & MAC OSX Mavericks) if you download the drivers form the Canon site. the network scanning simply doesn't work.

DO NOT BUY!!

  • Conclusion: My printer was working great and then for no reason it wouldn't turn on. I checked every possible problem and it just wouldn't power on. I went to the Canon forum and found that I wasn't the only one to have this problem. There were 80 some posts saying the same thing.

Started out great....disappointed!

  • Conclusion: I was initially so impressed with this printer due to the compact size, ease of use, nice print quality and wireless component. Purchased 4/2013. However, in the last 4-5 months I've had nothing but problems. The most frustrating is that the print head has gotten clogged so the colors will not print. I have taken the print head out several times and cleaned as indicated, but it still won't print properly.

good while it lasted

  • Conclusion: I have read several customers that experienced the same issue that I have. I have had my mx892 for approximately 15 months and it just stopped printing. the machine goes through the motion of printing, but the paper is blank. I have gone through all of the maint. available, several time, but still no printed pages. there seems to be a flaw with this machine since so many others have experienced the same issue.

Sudden Death at 14 months

MinPA, Canon
18 October 2014
  • Conclusion: Very happy with this printer until it suddenly died. Without warning, while printing it just went dark and refuses to power up. Lasted only 14 months after moderate usage. I found a number of posts from consumers who had the identical experience. Strongly suggest you avoid this model since it clearly has reliability issues. A shame, because this was a great all-in-one before its untimely demise.

Decent printer. Didn't last long though.

Wes, Canon
6 October 2014
  • Conclusion: Tremendously dissapointed at the build quality of things these days. This printer is the latest victim of a short lifespan and ink nozzle perma-clog. Liked the printer for the short time I had it which was a little over a year. A few months back the cyan color nozzle became clogged and I was unable to clean it using the canon self cleaning tools.. Today the power supply quit and it will no longer turn on. Might have to try a different brand this time around.

Inexpensive to operate, simple to use.

adggjs, Canon

  • Conclusion: This is a great machine. The wireless works very well. To get full benefit of this unit, be sure to dial-down the ink settings to 50%. Your cartridges last forever (almost). You can easily print a ream of paper after the indicator says "Empty". Photo quality is the only time I use the Auto setting on ink. Scanning a stack of documents could not be easier. The two-sided print saves a lot of paper. The best multi-function machine/printer I've ever seen.
