MX895 - Hideous wired Ethernet connection setup!

John E. Allen, Amazon
25 December 2013
  • Summary: I have had two MX895s but I must say that (at least with my ASUS RT-N66 router) CANON have a HIDEOUSLY complex installation routine for the WIRED Ethernet connection and I sent the first one back (to Germany!) because I genuinely believed it to be faulty in that respect, whereas it would connect and print easily via the wireless WPS connection method. Finally, however (and about 4hrs trying!

Beware ink refill charges

xicao, Amazon
6 January 2013
  • Summary: Great printer, great service from Amazon. However, it uses ink at an alarming rate, it uses colour inks even when you set it to print in grayscale and in draft mode and it tries to persuade you to change printer cartridges long before this is necessary. I never buy Canon cartridges but still the costs are high. So...great printer but I would much rather pay more at the outset and have something that is more honest and is cheaper to run.

Linux users

buff orpington, Amazon
25 August 2012
  • Summary: After agonising for weeks about which all-round printer to buy I thought this looked a good bet and was impressed by its reviews and discount on Amazon. However, my computer's operating system is Linux and I didn't realise how little backup there would be for a relatively new product.

The printer has one bad but very important feature

Annoyed, Canon
29 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Have used Canon products for a very long time but very disappointed with the capacity of the ink cartridges in this model. While the price of the ink is similar to its predessors, the cartridges hold about half the amount. This means that the ink is DOUBLE the price!! No wonder people seek out the refillable cartridges.
  • Pros: Easy to use
  • Cons: Large Footprint, High Ink Consumption

Hoher Tintenverbrauch

21 July 2013
  • Summary: Bedienung ist nicht wirklich selbsterklärend. Obwohl ich noch nie in Farbe gedruckt habe sind die Patronen bereits leer??? Sehr lange Reinigungsprozesse. Sonst aber in Ordnung.

Ist stark mit sich selbst beschäftigt

Wolfgang Jordan, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: Als überzeugter CANON-Drucker-Anwender ersetzte ich einen noch funktionsfähigen CANON-Drucker (der Tintenfilz war voll und nicht mehr lieferbar) mit dem Pixma MX895. Ein schickes Teil, aber dieses Modell ist stark mit Selbstanalyse (bevor er druckt checkt er sich viel zu lange mit sich selbst) beschäftigt und der neue Drucker musste gleich ausgetauscht werden, weil er nicht mehr druckte und scannte (trotz Originalfarben).
