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
IF U GET A 6C10 ERROR - READ THIS! THERE CAN BE A HAPPY ENDING
24 July 2013
Summary: i purchased this printer 4 MONTHS ago. Today I got an error code 6 C10. I went online & found numerous threads about this error & also feedback here on Amazon. Imagine how disappointed I was to read the cause stated by users & how hopeless any solution is. I thought I was purchasing a quality, top of the line printer & after 4 MONTHS it's garbage???? It has a 1 yr warranty so I decided to contact Canon Tech Support......
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!

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.
Conclusion: I've had this printer for about a week now. I found it very frustrating when trying to print directly from my laptop because a lot of the time it would say there was a communication error even though the printer is on and working correctly. I did the setup and everything on my laptop so there is no reason for it to be saying that. Most of the time I would have to move all the photos I want onto an SD card and print it from there.
Conclusion: This is my 4th. Canon photo printer, but my 1st. photo all in one printer. Both photo print and text quality are excellent, which is exactly what I'm accustom to getting from my Canon printers. This multi function device has far more features than I will ever need to use, and I like that, since I'm a firm believer that "it's better to have it and not need it than not have it and need it".
Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, durable, Sharp Tones & Colors, easy to use
Conclusion: While the specifications list a galaxy of compatible picture cards, Footnote 7 mentions a "special adapter" allegedly "sold separately." In truth there is no currently made adapter that will permit the use of xD format picture cards. While a few such cards (xD to CF) may still be found on dealers' shelves, their prices are about half the price of the current street price of this printer. If you want to print from xD cards, look elsewhere.
Pros: Easy Setup, Sharp Tones & Colors, prints cds and dvds
Cons: Large Footprint, Heavy/Bulky, High Ink Consumption, poor documentation
Summary: This printer is a beast when it comes to features. We love it because it wirelessly connects to our home network. It produces excellent photographs. It is quiet and relatively fast. It's unique touch buttons on top take some getting used to. The buttons you need will only light up when you need them. After a few months it's transparent to us. The very small capacity paper tray is frustrating if you're doing a lot of document printing.
