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

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.
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.
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.
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.
