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

Don't Believe the Specifications

PTurvill, Canon
13 June 2013
  • 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

Don't tell anybody I don't like it.

H. Beck "BeckImpressions", Amazon
6 January 2013
  • Summary: I feel terrible because I did a ton of research, and I was dead set on this printer. Now I can't let my husband know that I really don't like it (and I think he's afraid to tell me how much he doesn't like it!). I haven't owned a printer in years, but my 1994 HP printer could run circles around this thing. It's super slow, especially just to warm up. It takes forever before it will even begin to print something after you request it.

Good Printer, Easy to Setup. Fragile?

L. Gallinaro, Amazon
3 January 2013
  • Summary: I didn't have any trouble setting up this printer although it did take a while. It took a while not because it was confusing but because several of the steps took 4 or 5 minutes for the printer to perform some sort of calibration or adjustment. I had no trouble setting up the wireless access. It worked right away without any issues and my computer was able to find the printer on the network immediately.

Problems with drawing paper from front cassette?

Simon Plant, Amazon
3 October 2012
  • Summary: Has anyone had any problems with drawing paper from front cassette? I checked the menu settings and its set to use cassette, but always tries to pull from the additional paper feeder tray at the back, which is supposed to be for non-letter and A4 sizes. I've reached out to Canon support... @waiting. Update: Canon support contacted me back within 24 hours. In short, the defaults in the drivers and software are a little kooky.

bad or no instructions

knuts1, Canon
16 July 2012
  • Conclusion: I bought this printer yesterday and it took forever to install as the instructions are very bad. I bought it mainly to scan old negatives and there are absolutely no instructions either with the printer or online that I can find that instruct me on how to do it. If the sales woman did not show me where the negative holder was I probably would not have found it as again there are no instructions I could find.
  • Pros: Compact Design, fast print speed
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, bad or no instructions
