Would be great if all the features worked

april, Canon

  • Conclusion: Have had our printer for about 3 months. Blue tooth connectivity works well. Print quality is good. Speed is ok. Ink runs out faster than I would like. If you plan to get this to print pictures- look for another printer. The back feed tray that is supposed to hold picture paper doesn't work well at all. When you do finally get it to recognize the adjusted feed tray you have to deal with file feed errors. For what we paid I wish we could return it and get something else.
  • Pros: Sharp Tones & Colors
  • Cons: Difficult to use, unreliable

MG8220 Review

Pinocchio, Canon

  • Conclusion: I am an advanced photographer and printer user. I have used this printer for over a year. The interface is poor. The ink cartridges are too small. The print quality is poor. The scanner is complicated. Photos are not worth printing on this printer.

Best Graphics and Home Use Printer

Howard Chambers, Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: First of all I'd like to advise people to be careful what they're reading in these reviews. Take them with a grain of salt! Comments regarding lack of fax capability, can't connect to their home WiFi, and can't find the 35mm slide adapter are from people who either didn't bother to read the product description or didn't bother to read the instructions. This really makes it difficult for those of us who are trying to find an unbiased product review.

You can't go wrong with the Canon PIXMA MG8220, it's one fine machine!!

rz31657, Ebay
10 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this printer based on other Canon printers I have owned. This is the best one yet. All functions operate perfectly and print quality is outstanding. The scanner function has many options for types of files and allows you to choose on the flip up screen. Very easy to set up and operate. I have Windows 8 and Canon has the drivers needed on their website for easy download. Canon has a fine reputation for quality products and this printer is no exception.

Excellant Printer

marrog65, Ebay
8 December 2013
  • Summary: Bought this printer to replace an Epson that I had for just over a year. The printhead of the Epson got clogged and I wasn't able to clear it. So far this appears to be one of the best printers I've owned - pictures are excellant - its very easy to use and works fast.

Best value

  • Summary: Setting up the printer was easy. Had the printer connected to Wi-Fi in minutes. Prints superb borderless pictures. Had other Canon printers in the past and they worked well until they were outdated.

Not reliable - slow

Tom, Canon
4 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The features are excellent when working. My three complaints are: Prints many copies when I only select to print one. This has happened many times and drains my ink cartridges (which are obscenely expensive). This just happened moments ago when I discovered I had over 20 pages of the same thing. I assumed I was out of paper but 5 minutes later another page came out. A software bug that clearly benefits Canon's cash flow.
  • Pros: wireless setup
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Slow Print Speed, High Ink Consumption, unreliable

Repeatedly Fails at Printing 2-Sided Copies

NUMB3RS NUT, Amazon
14 July 2013
  • Summary: I have no problems with the text or photo quality of this printer. Both are great. However, as others have stated, the ink use on this printer is abnormally high. EXPECT TO SPEND FAR MORE than you have on other printers. More important to me though is its INABILITY TO PRODUCE SIPLE 2-SIDED PRINTING. Here are my 2 major problems related to 2-sided printing.

Nice AIO Printer, but holy cow does it suck through ink!

Eric Ilasenko "aka Tully Mars in Floridahhhh", Amazon
10 July 2013
  • Summary: Holy cow - has Dr.Evil taken over the ink market? Think he may be a printer engineer at Canon based on my experiences this past month using this printer! SIMPLY RIDICULOUS INK USE: This thing uses wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy more ink and has many, MANY more cleaning cycles, seemingly randomly sometimes, than any other Canon printer I've ever owned. In less than a month, it has sucked through all but the one large black ink cart already.
