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

very frustrating selection panel

Mel, Canon
27 February 2013
  • Conclusion: This printer does print high quality copies. However, the panel of buttons to select what you want is very, very confusing. The printer seems to get "confused" when I try printing something remotely from my computer, and whirrs and clicks forever before I finally coax it to print. I've had the printer for about 8 months and it's a challenge any time I want to print.
  • Pros: Sharp Tones & Colors
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Slow Print Speed, unreliable

Too much of a hassle!

D., Amazon
27 December 2012
  • Summary: If you are going to pair this with a Mac computer running Mt Lion OS X you are not going to be happy! The CD that comes in the box will not set up the printer. I called the company and asked if an up-dated CD would be issued and was told no. After an hour on the phone with Canon technical support, I finally got it to print, but that is all. If all I wanted was a simple printer, I could have gone to Kmart and bought one for $60.00.

Software Bad

ToniV, Amazon
23 September 2012
  • 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. This is important to me because I do digital photo and document scanning of old photos and old documents and it would be much quicker to be able to fix them before saving them.

5 STAR PRINTER BUSTED FOR CRIMINAL INK USAGE

Charles Nordlander, Amazon
17 September 2012
  • 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. And in terms of features, performance and price, each generation has been best-in-class vs. the competition. Measured only by those standards, they're absolutely 5 star printers.
