Good but careful when installing drivers & software

Summary: Nice printer but annoying installation process for drivers Connecting the printer to my wireless router was no problem since I used WPS. If you then do "control panel" > "printers" > "add printer", Windows 7 may or may not find it on your wireless network. In my case Windows found it intitially and then decided that it was no longer there a few days later. I was able to fix this by manually entering the IP address etc. but that should not be necessary for retail printer.
Summary: I bought the Canon Pixma MG6150 recently, when my lovely Epson R1290 started playing up. I was using up a lot of ink repetitively cleaning the heads. Not bad innings for a printer of six years and as the problem was hit and miss I decided I would keep the Epson as it prints up to A3. The Canon took about an hour to set up with a cuppa in between.
Summary: Very good looking printer, really easy to set up WiFi great signal strength two rooms away from G type router. Print quality is really good especially photo's, Good scan speed and quality, good software package included. Normal paper A4 to A5 is tray loaded out of sight and print output drawer auto opens (manual close).
Summary: All round great machine but a positive word of warning. This machine does NOT come with a "USB printer" lead so unless you are connecting by WI-FI order one at the same time. Also ink cartridges supplied have just enough to print a few A4 photos so would suggest you order them as well. I have been a Epson fan for many years my last being the PX700W which gave what I thought was excellent results until the scanner unit twisted giving me distorted pictures.
Summary: I concur with PJ's comprehensive report. It is slow to start with. My main concern had been that the 'connection' had to be wired or wireless, not a mixture. I thought this meant that I would have to connect to the router using an adaptor rather that by an ethernet cable. OK, maybe I was being naive? Anyway, I am still connected to my router via ethernet cable and the printer and other computers in the house connect wirelessly.
Summary: When my ip3000 started to show its age, I spent spent months trawling through reviews of printers and came to the conclusion that almost all printers get aboout 20% telling you it's brilliant and about 20% that say buying it was the worst decision of their lives! When I finally made a decision I found that the printer I'd chosen (Canon MP640) had been superceded by the MG6150 so I went for that.
Summary: It's probably fine if you instal printers frequently. I don't, and it took me about three hours to work through the 33 pages of assembling the printer and the 10 pages of installing software. That's after reading the instructions several times to check I understood them. It works very well - quite fast and good print quality, but when it hasn't been used for an hour or two it takes at least a minute after receiving the print command when it has wake up and says it is...
Summary: 1er point positif:l'imprimante se branche très facilement en Wi-fi via la Livebox,alors même que notre PC n'est pas configuré pour la Wi-fi. L'installation a donc été simple et rapide,sans trop avoir besoin de nous référer au mode d'emploi joint(très bien fourni soi dit en passant,pour une fois il n'y a pas à glaner toutes les infos sur internet). Sur la qualité d'impression,absolument rien à redire:elle est excellente. La rapidité et la maniabilité le sont elles aussi.
