Does not include cables

astockwelluk, Amazon
9 April 2014
  • Summary: I'm not able to comment on the print quality as the product does not include the cables necessary to set up the machine. You can pick up a good photo printer for £50ish so when I spent £150 on this one I expected it to work out of the box but it is supplied with a US power lead and no USB lead to conect it to your computer. This is a pretty poor show and an extra expense I was not anticipating. Not impressed by Canon on this one!

not a good printer

Mr. Roy Tomkinson, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • Summary: This was sold with a cashback offer from Canon,this was not forthcoming. Worked ok for about 3 months (uses lunatic amounts of ink) then started printing jagged white lines on the prints,Canon service hopeless. Did not use for a while tried again still has the lines and now prints with a diagonal slant and makes nasty noises. Had new inks fitted and by the time it primed half the ink was used up plus about 20 mins.

Great Printer/scanner/copier

Sherry - Animal Lover, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: Great piece of kit. I print mainly financial reports however my daughter needed a printer for colour photographs of her work and this fits the bill. It's economical neat and compact and very easy to operate. I haven't purchased Canons inks so I cannot say if it's economical from that point of view I found that the inks sold by "Inkredible" were very inexpensive and the print quality is very good.It does the job for us.

Reliable and good

Derek Simpson "Derek Simpson", Amazon
8 December 2013
  • Summary: I threw (and I mean THREW) another A3+ printer of a different brand into a skip when I bought this for 1/3 of the price. After a year of infrequent use I have not suffered any of the regular glitches I had become used to. The bugbear for me is that it is hard to overrule the "idiot beginner" settings: the prinbter is capable of very very good output but I wish to print without any adjustment whatever applied by "enhance" and "optimize" controls.

Vertical lines

DR THURA TUN, Amazon
22 August 2013
  • Summary: The prints show white vertical lines at regular intervals. I tried cleaning and aligning the heads as advised by Canon to no avail. I returned it on the same day as I received it and ordered Epson 1500W instead. Epson works like a wonder. I must commend Amazon for making the return process easy. I filed for return and the product was collected the next day by Yodel. I am waiting for the refund now.

Does what it says on the box.

Winstone, Amazon
31 May 2013
  • Summary: The last three printers I have bought have been 3 in 1 and this time around I wanted to get something that does what it says. To me wifi is pointless and so is having card readers as I do all my editing on my PC and print from my PC. I wanted a quality printer that printed all kinds of documents and photos in A3 for a good price without all the bells and whistles. I ordered this printer two days ago and it arrived this morning.
