Summary: First of all I'd like to advise people to be careful what they're reading in these reviews. Take them with a grain of salt! Comments regarding lack of fax capability, can't connect to their home WiFi, and can't find the 35mm slide adapter are from people who either didn't bother to read the product...
You can't go wrong with the Canon PIXMA MG8220, it's one fine machine!!

Summary: I bought this printer based on other Canon printers I have owned. This is the best one yet. All functions operate perfectly and print quality is outstanding. The scanner function has many options for types of files and allows you to choose on the flip up screen. Very easy to set up and operate.
Summary: Bought this printer to replace an Epson that I had for just over a year. The printhead of the Epson got clogged and I wasn't able to clear it. So far this appears to be one of the best printers I've owned - pictures are excellant - its very easy to use and works fast.
Summary: Setting up the printer was easy. Had the printer connected to Wi-Fi in minutes. Prints superb borderless pictures. Had other Canon printers in the past and they worked well until they were outdated.
Summary: After reading the primary listed review on this unit, I felt compelled to write this. Criminal ink usage? I don't see that at all and mine stays turned on all the time. The gauges still register full with the original ink cartridges after a month of usage. This is an incredible all around printer.
Summary: I'm retired, don't do a lot of printing but what I have been doing is a lot of scanning, it does a great job and the fact that it can scan 35 negatives and turn them into pictures is wonderful, digitizing them and my slides, printing from my tablet and phone.
Summary: The first thing I did once it was hooked up is scanned a 30 year old negative. Fantastic! The only thing more I could wish for is someone to make a full 8.5x11 lit cover, so I could scan large format negatives and contact sheets.There was no paper manual, but the CD-ROM contains one that is MORE...
