Summary: Replacement for an Epson Photo RX585 whose black print head had gaps which meant letters and the like in black were useless but the colour photos were still excellent. The Canon was at a similar price point and had all the facilities the Epson had with the addition of duplex printing(though very...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Summary: Printer nu twee jaar in bezit, persoonlijk ben ik helemaal klaar met de Canon's. Het verbruik van de inkt is bij af en toe gebruik absurd hoog. Ik heb vorige maand voor 80 euro aan nieuwe tanks gekocht en er nu geeft hij al weer aan dat geel op is.
