There are b etter options to spend you hard-earn dollars on

Summary: CHEAP-CHEAP-CHEAP You get what you pay for! I generally liked the features of this printer, and being a very light user, it should have filled my needs nicely. Speed is really slow, but again for the little I use a printer, that was fine and to be expected for an inexpensive model. After it clicked, popped, whirred and sounded like a thrashing machine for a VERY long warmup time, it would produce a nice quality print or picture.
Great as a printer, but consider a 3-in-1 if you want to scan/copy.

Summary: I have owned the Canon PIXMA IP2600 for several years and found it to be of good quality. I recently acquired an Epson 3-in-1 to be able to scan and copy (also prints). I continue to use the PIXMA, primarily for black and white, as it holds more paper and the ink cost is less. A few months ago my laptop became damaged and had to be replaced.
Summary: Bought this to replace an old Canon PIXMA IP1600, they use the same ink cartridges and I was having problems constantly with the IP1600. Upon arrival of the 'new' printer, it seemed to work ok, but then I ran into the same problem of an error every time I attempted to print. Turned out to be a software issue that took quite a while to rectify. After working that out, this printer has been working just fine.
Summary: I bought this printer mostly because they last a long time with much printing..the cartridges can easily be refilled without the printer shutting down until you buy new...a plus because the newer printers wont let you do that...saves money and with everyday use i have one thats been used over a year..excellent..
