Canon provided software doesn't allow you to save/export your design work!

Summary: I purchased to print on surface of printable CD/DVDs. The Canon software didn't work. The supplied CD was dated 2015, but the printing software was from 2013, version 1.1.2. I found on the Canon site the current version 3.3.0.
Summary: I have owned (or currently own) 7 printers including this one -- 5 HPs and 2 Canons. The reason for buying this printer was three-fold -- (a) my terrific experience with the Canon imageCLASS MFC4200, (b) HP's dwindling quality, and (c) the ability to replace individual ink cartridges.
Summary: This printer is designed to use color ink almost exclusively. In fact, according to their technical support the ONLY time it uses black ink is when it prints a text (.txt) document in "fast" mode (very faint and difficult to read), portrait orientation, non-duplex (printing both sides).
Conclusion: Date:November 17, 2014 If you've used and enjoyed an older Canon inkjet printer, then you will despise this one. At least, that's my experience. All I wanted was a replacement for my venerable old iP4000.
Cons: -Takes 10 minutes to print out anything -Not user friendly -Horrible software -unintelligent design, and overall, leaves MUCH to be desired -Must be connected to a computer via USB in order to be switched from direct connection OR network. It can not do both, and you have to re-run the horrible s...
Conclusion: Expensive ink cartridges with proprietary chips that are so small they dry out before you can use them. A buggy, slow interface. WiFi does not work properly. There is nothing to like about this Canon product.
Cons: Slow Print Speed, Large Footprint, unreliable, expensive ink, short ink cartridge life

Summary: I purchased this as a replacement for my IP4500 which was fast, quiet, and excellent at printing both text and photos. I am returning it because it is slow, noisy, and is not excellent at printing.
