Summary: Let me start out by saying - I am not a computer or tech novice, I build and maintain my own computers and networks. Now, having said that - - After doing the touch screen setup and installing the drivers, when this printer did not work with a simple connection of the USB to the computer and trying to print from any program, . . .I turned to install the setup software.
Summary: After having this printer installed and used very seldom, Six days in fact, I was very surprised to get a low ink message. I contacted Cannon to inquire about this sudden message. I was advised that this is to be expected. I purchased this priinter after seeing the rating in Consumer Reports who rated the MG6220 10th out of 63 rated. I was very surprised to learn that it uses 6 small cartidges of ink which as it developes, do not last very long.
Summary: My 8 year old Canon Pixma IP4200 suddenly died, bad power supply or logic board. If I could get parts for it I would fix it. This was a great printer, much better than the 4920. The ink cartridges were twice the capacity and cheaper than the 4920. If you are looking for a simple print only printer your choices are limited. All the printer companies are into the all-in-one printers.
Summary: Overall it's a nice printer. Very sleek and easy to use. The inkjet disc printing is an excellent feature for the price. However, Canon fails to advertise that the REQUIRED USB cable needed to connect the printer to your computer is NOT included in the box. Nowhere on the packaging or the Amazon page (that I saw. I looked twice.) is it mentioned that the necessary cable is left out of the box.
Not up to previous Canon models - but custom settings helped.

Summary: I like others have owned several canon printers including the IP5200 and IP4500, which I had modified to print on CDs like the european version so liked that the 4920 finally did it. I got the 4920 to replace my wifes 5200 that has a bad print head, because the 4920 is cheaper than the 5200 print head. The main problems with the 4920 is that it prints darker and adds a red tinge to what the photos show on my editing software packages.
Summary: I bought the ip4920 to replace my i950 six-color printer, which finally died after eight years. It's a nice printer, but its color rendering is far from neutral. Compared to my i950 prints, the 4920 prints display a distinct red/magenta bias. On some images, it's fairly subtle. But on others, it is quite noticeable. I ended up purchasing a custom ICC profile, which I use in Photoshop.
Feature-rich, but wastes ink and some driver issues

Summary: The MG6200 is a lot of printer (and scanner, and copier...) for the purchase price. On features and quality, I'd give it 5 stars. The scan and print quality are excellent, and the included applications for scanning/printing are adequate. It can connect via USB, wired network, or wireless network (and I've tried all three). There is no automatic document feeder (ADF), even as an optional accessory, so keep that in mind if you have lots of multi-page documents to scan.
