Summary: We had this printer for only 3 weeks when it started saying "Error, paper jam". However there was no paper jammed, nor had there been. In looking online the only solution I found for this problem was to have the printer serviced. I went on quite a few different forums and websites, and it sounds like this is a pretty common issue with this printer. I wasn't going to pay to have a brand new cheap printer serviced so we returned it.
Summary: An excellent basic multi-function at this price point (paid $39). Came in 2 days (Prime), was relatively easy to hook up, using USB cable from previous printer. A few hiccups on driver installation, that might have been operator error, but now works smoothly. This replaced a $48 Canon (ip1700) printer that was not multi-function, and lasted around 10 years. Now, my wife can scan or copy the occasional document or sheet music, as well as printing with ease.
Summary: Full disclosure: I haven't used this thing yet. Why? Well because it doesn't actually COME WITH THE CORD to connect to the computer. Had they been up front about that in any way I would have ordered a cord and had it shipped for free. But it's too late now. Had they even described it in the step-by-step installation instructions, I wouldn't have had to research how the hell this thing was supposed to connect without a cord.

Summary: No, I don't like it. I haven't been able to get it to scan and it only prints one copy at a time, so if I need 5 copies of the same letter I have to press start 5 times. That's press print once and wait till that letterprints, then press print again and wait for that one to print, then... Need I go on? When it's getting ready to print it makes such a racket that it sounds like it's going to fall apart. I'm not happy.
Summary: This really compact printer arrived way ahead of schedule. I was able to activate it with little difficulty, although the pictographic "Getting Started" folder that came with the item was none too clear in the sequence of needed maneuvers. However, the CD installation disc had all the directions needed, and clearly displayed, to make set up quick and easy. The rapidity of printing is exceptional, and the print quality excellent.
Summary: I didn't need anything fancy, just a basic printer/scanner combo. After reading the reviews (thank you to the one who specified what way the paper went in), I ordered this, and received it a few hrs ago. Of course, I immediately set it up. I was fortunate, as my old printer was a Canon, and I kept the USB cord plugged into the socket. The other end fit perfectly in the printer.
Summary: I have had this printer for about a month, I use it sparingly. It was easy to set up (Windows 7) and I have used both printing and scanning and it works great. I got a chromebook so I will try to set it up for the chromebook and see how that goes. In terms of size it is the right size, not too big, not too small.

Summary: Canon has always been a trusted brand for me. So when I saw this all-in-one printer for the price that was offered, I had to jump on it. And once again, I was not disappointed. Loving my new printer and it also has the option to print on silence, now that's a big plus for me. Keep on being the great brand that you are Canon!!
