Summary: This was one of the first things I bought from Amazon and its still working flawlessly and efficiently. When I bought a new computer that had Windows 7 it took me a while to figure out where to find the correct updated drivers so it would work, and I don't remember exactly what I did but I got it working. I'd be sad if I lost this printer, it only costs me $5 in cheap refill ink every couple of months and I print a lot. The quality is good enough for me.
Summary: For printing photos up to 8.5" wide, this is a fine printer that with proper software, allows all the necessary adjustments to produce a fine rendition. Be prepared to make a test print, once in a while, to assure that what you see is what you like. Having the ability to feed paper from a cassette and a straight-through slot at the back-top is a plus. I got the black case model, but no expected difference.
Summary: We needs this exact printer n we were looking in all the major appliance store with no results. When I was able to locate this printer on Amazon for an incredible price I purchased it. It's a very slim, small, compact printer n I'm extremely glad I was able to find it. Thanks!
Summary: Just over ten years ago I purchased my first computer. It came with a printer which was very, very noisy, but being a novice it was all I knew. The ink was really expensive, so I bought some cheap ink that wasn't the usual brand for the printer. It messed the printer up so bad, I could no longer use it.
Summary: I have one and like it, so I purchased the same make and model when I needed to add a second printer for my office. It is a great printer for the money with excellent quality printing. The print cartridges are reasonable as far as ink cartridges go, and by having the same printer everywhere in the office, I can cut down on everyone's walking time plus buy cartridges in bulk. I like it well enough that I will keep buying these as we expand.
Summary: I purchased this printer primarily to print photos. It does a wonderful job at this. Colors are sharp and crisp and clear. I can print full size portraits, or multiples on the same sheet. Using a digital camera in combination with this printer has been a God send. No more paying ridiculously high prices for prints that may or may not be to my liking!!! The size of the printer is perfect. I fits next to my CPU on the desk top very nicely.
Summary: Pros - I bought this unit as a backup to one I already have. The PIXMA gives excellent print quality. It also has a straight through paper path which allows the use of heavier cardstock. Installing the cartridges is simple. The printer tends to last a long time. The color carts only provide a few hundred copies at heavy printing. The black cart lasts much longer than the color. Printer printers on multiple types of media easily.
