Pros: Decent resolution and ink cartridges are inexpensive. It is reasomly compact for an all in one, the set up is easy and the built in wireless system works well.
Cons: This is an annoying printer. The advertised print speed ignores the endless grinding it does before it actually starts to do any printing or scanning. The prepatory time significantly exceeds the print time and it does it frequently. I would would not buy this printer again.
Summary: I own this printer. It was an awesome printer while it was still working. I did not have a problem with excessive ink consumption. I've had it for about two years. Very well taken care of, did not use it excessively, or let it sit for long periods. Kept it on a surge protector.
Summary: The printer is good....the provided software is BAD. My main complaint is that the software that comes with the printer only allows for auto scan of PDF and JPEG. This does not allow me to preview and edit the scanned image before saving it.
Summary: I have owned the last three generations of Canon's top-of-line Photo A.I.O. -- the 990, the 8120 and now the 8220. Each generation has offered at least one new feature that was important enough to me to justify an upgrade.

Summary: Printer came with 1 year warranty from Canon. In its 13th month of life it started giving an error code and would no longer print (other functions were normal). Contacted Canon support. They offered no help and would not tell me what error code meant.
