Summary: This product was used, but it works fine, and does everything it is supposed to do. I had an older Canon that scanned slides and negatives, which is what I really wanted, but the printer went bad and I had to replace it. I wanted the same feature, but it was almost $200 more on a newer model (this one is no longer produced). I got all I wanted, plus it does wireless printing.
For the price of the Canon Pixma MG8120, you cant find a better deal

Summary: This product was easy to set up, the wifi works perfectly on our home network. The printing speed is great, no waiting as soon a you hit print it is there. Picture quality is not as nice compared to a pricier HP or Epson but for the price of the printer, you cant beat it.
Summary: I like this printer from a feature/quality standpoint. There are lots of reviews on here for that. But it drinks ink. I didn't think it would matter that much to me, but I was amazed at how quickly we went through the ink, considering we don't print that much. When you haven't used it for a while, it takes about 5 minutes to start up. During that time, there is ink being used. I'm not sure if it's cleaning, or aligning, or what it's doing. But the ink is being used.
Summary: When my PIXMA MX700 died, I researched many different models to replace it. This was the only one I found that got satisfaction ratings around 50%. It was a little pricey, but thankfully I found a "limited edition" one (bronze color) for a good deal less. Set up went very well for someone like me who's not all that computer savvy, but perhaps that was because of my prior experience with Canon printers which I do find more user friendly than some other brands & also...
Summary: Just over 4 months the print head went bad.This is bad enough,but when they told me it would take2 or 3 weeks to get the part,that was the end of my confidence in Canon.At first I just used email to contact the company.Then I made a call to them (WHAT A WASTE OF TIME ).They told me they never stock the print heads,and only order them when a customer needs one.
Summary: Print quality is great. It takes some time to start up and shut down but I'm never in a rush so I don't care about that. I've had this for a few months now and printed maybe 30 pages of paper and 2 small photos and I'm already low on ink. I know companies make money on the ink but this is too much.
Summary: This printer really exceeded all my expectations for a color printer in this price range. It is so easy to setup and use. There are several options for ink on ebay, which makes it so affordable to do a lot of color printing.
Summary: I was so excited to have finally decided on what printer I would invest in for my invitations business. After, much research, I chose this printer with great anticipation for great performance. Once I had it calibrated and ready to go for the first print, I quickly became disappointed. The words on the invitation were printed out on a downward slant. My husband kept trying to adjust it and the slant was still noticable.
Summary: Took my new Canan Pixma printer out of the box, and it would not turn on properly. It indicated I had a paper jam. After contacting Canon tech support, they determined my printer had a hardware problem (error 5700). I would need to send it to them and they would send me a "refurbished" printer. I said I just paid for a NEW printer. That was not satisfactory. ANT who I bought the printer from would not take it back! I am working with Amazon to resolve this.
Summary: I have always used HP all-in-ones, and have never had a problem. The Canon MG8120 is a disaster. It refuses to maintain its scanner or printer connection to my 2011 iMac (either wirelessly or wired). On most jobs, the printer doesn't work, and gives me a "communication error" message. All Canon technical support could advise was to keep deleting and adding the printer in my "System Preferences.
