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.

Excellent print quality

  • Summary: This printer takes a long time to warm up & prepare to scan & email. Maybe it's because it is wireless. I must try using a usb cable for comparison. The print quality is excellent.

Much Better Than the Epson Artisan I Sent Back

Jack Dallas, Amazon
25 April 2013
  • Summary: This Canon MG8220 was ordered to replace the Epson Artisan 837 I painlessly returned to Amazon. At this juncture I can only review the setup and print quality. Setup gets 5 stars, especially after the rigors of the Epson. There was none of the convoluted, now plug in the USB cable, then step through the software, then unplug the USB cable so you can now use your Ethernet cable, etc.

Poor documentation

Paul Brians, Amazon
6 January 2013
  • Summary: So far I like the printer, but I'm finding the documentation frustrating. i wasted two hours trying to connect to my WiFi base because the menu called for me to enter a password of a specific length. Later I realized it should have said "enter THE password for the WiFi base," not "A password." I was trying to invent a new password of the required length when all I needed to do was enter my familiar password.

Many features in one package

My Online Reviews, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this All-in-One (AIO) unit to replace my aging Umax Powerlook III scanner (one of the better flatbeds circa 2000), which won't work in Windows 8. It costs about the same as a stand-alone middle-of-the-line scanner. This AIO can print (on plain paper, photo, and printable discs), scan (film and slides as well as reflective media), copy and read your media cards. It also has quite an array of connectivity options (USB, Wired/wireless Ethernet, optional Bluetooth).

MG8220 - Like a trophy wife, she's pretty and expensive

CCTX, Amazon
1 November 2012
  • Summary: I've had this printer for about a week. The first time I printed a color photo on glossy I was speechless. The print looked like it had just come from a photo lab. Setup was easy and mine originally came with the old firmware which was a little disappointing. Had to upgrade to V3.020 via the web site. Not too much trouble but not something I expect to do on a brand new printer. Ink usage may be a concern.

Printer Review

tzimmerm, Amazon
19 July 2012
  • Summary: Printer works great. This printer replaces a Cannon MP970 that has served me very well and prints photos of the highest quality. I was disappointed in that the supplied ink cartritges that came with the printer had minimal ink and the first 2 cartritges failed the second day and were out of ink. The new cartritges that I purchased are lasting longer.

Serious photo printer, stuffed w/ the latest gadgets.

janeot, Ebay
10 March 2012
  • Summary: I am an artist. When my old slow Epson photo printer kaputed right after I'd just bought a full complement of expensive new ink, I was determined to find a higher quality replacement. For several days I did on-line research about current photo printers with a focus on both super high photo quality and versatility for document use. In the end the Canon Pixma MG8220 seemed to receive more thumbs-up, and I found the best price on eBay.

Very good for printing photos and scanning.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 November 2011
  • Summary: This does exactly what I expected it to do. It scans old photos and negatives with excellent resolution. It prints outstanding photos. I would have given it a 5 but the ink is expensive. I wouldn't use it as a document printer.

A very capable printer, but expensive!

Lenny, Amazon
5 November 2011
  • Summary: I own the MP600. It's been working flawlessly for the past 3 years. It does everything I want - copying, scanning, printing, handling envelopes. I've even used the card slot to print photos occasionally, though I prefer to run them through Photoshop if I'm going to print them. I've even managed to get it to print CDs by buying the tray on eBay, and changing the firmware country to Europe. The only thing I wanted and it didn't have is network access.
