Excerpt: Use at home for pictures, reports, forms and other personal items. It was good to start with, but now it will not print anything in black ink when something is both in color and black. Other complaints I have read says there is no solution to my problem. Therefore I would now rate it one star.
Summary: Not sure if I will be able to get my Christmas card envelopes printed on this junk. I may have to go out and purchase an HP color printer. As much as i despise their ink pricing at least they seem to work - lesson learned.
Pros: There are zero pros to this printer. This is the worst printer I have ever owned. Canons software is junk.
Cons: Where to start? First the printer takes forever to turn on. Hope you like waiting 30-45 seconds. Second, it disconnects from your PC when you go to print to it, which brings up the third con: Canons printer software. It's honestly the worst I have ever used. I'm an IT professional with more than ...
Summary: had a canon mp500 for about 8 years that i loved. didn't have a similar experience with this.
Pros: it's black, like my computer case.
Cons: after the roughly 50 pages worth of starter ink were done, started throwing error codes on me. tried cleaning encoder film and some other basic troubleshooting based on those codes, no improvement, buying a better printer.
Excerpt: I bought this after I got rid of a wide carriage printer - lots of printer for the $$$ - my windows 7 computer died shortly after I bought this - I could not install the Windows 8.1 driver - nor the Windows 10 - I have a Dell 64 bit computer - I had to replace the printer because it is now unusable
Summary: I had been looking at this printer for some time, and when it was a lightning deal, I got it even though I knew it would be some time before I would be using it. So, recently I set it up, which was easy, and printed a few pages. All was fine.
Summary: Worst printer I've owned. Talk about a test of patience, I've never known a printer to do so many cycles of cleaning or whatever it's doing, before actually printing. Even when I'd just printed a couple of pages, the very next print job would require some cycling/ cleaning, which would take minutes...
Garbage. Buy something that works reliably (which isn't this POS)

Summary: I don't know how this POS printer gets such good reviews. I've had it for over a year now and it's the most frustrating piece of equipment I've owned. It does not stay connected to the network (I've tried both Verizon and Comcast and it works just as poorly on both) so you have to wake it up every...
