Conclusion: One word best describes this printer - FRUSTRATING!!! I bought this printer because I needed a printer that could print wirelessly. Unfortunately, the wireless feature is the worse part about this printer because it constantly looses the wireless connection. Huh??? If you look at the reviews this is a common complaint and the Canon "fixes" do not help. Print quality is good and features are nice, but constantly having to reset the WLAN connection is a major pain!
Pros: nice features
Cons: constantly loses wireless connection, uses a lot of ink
Conclusion: Usually I'm a big Canon guy but this printer is very poor. The scanner chokes on even good originals. The photos have noticable scan lines. It eats ink. It warms up forever. I use scangear because the supplied software took forever and was hard to use.
Conclusion: I have owned the MX850, the MX870, and now this one. The MX850 was the best of all. It had all the features and it worked well. The MX870 was OK, too. But the MX922 has made the Canon printer line sour. 1) It does NOT have a second paper tray - the advertised features were not clear. The second tray only does envelopes and pictures. I needed something for alternate standard size paper and was fooled. 2) The one true paper tray it has does not keep the paper stable.
Conclusion: I got this as a holiday gift so I had no say in reviewing or choosing. I have owned many printers in my life, I am fairly tech savvy, and I have happily used Canon products at the office so I was horrified to find how hard this system was to set up! The full set of drivers wasnt even on the CD and the USB cord was not included (I had to buy one at Radio Shack!
Pros: good displays on machine, reasonable sized footprint
Cons: hard to set up, doesnt contain all necessary parts and drivers, poor quality output, expensive ink, long start up time with each use
Conclusion: By far the poorest performing printer I have ever owned. It seems to decided on its own when it will print and when it won't. I find that the WIFI configuration simply disappears from time to time and has to be reprogrammed. I try to print and nothing... then 15 minutes later it decides that it is ready and prints, or maybe not. I haven't been able to print a thing all night, I've reset everything, doesn't matter.
Excerpt: I have been using printers since the day that I had to insert 50 3.5 floppy disks one at a time just to install the drivers of a laser printer. THAT WAS EASY in comparison to the TERRIBLE AND COMPLICATED set up and operation of this printer. Nothing is sequential, it is poorly written and once you are done - "error found could not complete installation" so then FOR A $120 PRINTER you have to actually call "technical support" as if you had a $20,000...
Pros: Design And Look, Print quality
Cons: Difficult To Operate, Not Intuitive, Very Difficult Set Up
Conclusion: Have had nothing but issues with this printer. Driver problems, ink cartridge problems. Currently have spent an hour working on it as it has just stopped printing images. Text is fine but will stall when "processing" processing any image and then just stop. Avoid this printer at all costs.
Conclusion: Great marketing and features although when it comes to performance, consistency is a huge issue. Wireless printing may or may not work! Getting so many error codes. Printer delay is horrible on wifi. I have tons of issues if I print from imac/iphone/ipad.
Pros: good feature, good print quality
Cons: inconsistent, expensive, issues with wifi printing, printer spool delays, compatibility issues with apple products
Conclusion: I paid quite a bit for this printer and have had problems with it from the beginning. The ink cartridges are expensive and don't last long. I have maybe printed 100 pages and the print head is no longer working even after multiple deep cleanings and cartridge replacement. Save your money.
