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.
