Conclusion: It does not work on Linux Mint Qiana (probably the best operating system). It does not work on Windows 8.1. It does work off SD memory chip. All I have to do is copy a picture to the SD. Remove the SD from the computer, Take the SD to the printer, and fumble with the super small screen on the CP900. It does print pretty good pictures, and it is reasonably priced. I bought it when I ran XP. It does work on XP.
Pros: durable, High Quality Output
Cons: Difficult to use, Slow Print Speed, Difficult Setup
Conclusion: I absolutely love the quality of the prints that come out of this printer. It is so easy to use, so portable, and the color is awesome. My only complaint is that I wish they had one for 5X7,s and 8X10's. It is so convenient to be able to do some corrections in a photo program and then just print from home. I love this printer.
Pros: reliable, durable, Small Footprint, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
Conclusion: Printer will not connect to my WiFi and I cannot install the software on OSX Maverick. I love the prints and the dye sublimation technology. But the whole reason for buying it was for the WiFi access which does not work. Would like to see a response from someone at Canon regarding this.
Conclusion: Interesting to see the negative reviews that focus on Windows 8 or the Apple environment. This was a snap to set up, connect to my home Wi-Fi network and print directly from my Android phone with the Canon mobile printing app. I have no idea how long it will last, but it took about less than 60 seconds to print from my phone. The colors were true to the picture.
Conclusion: Very disappointed as there are no drivers for Windows 8. This is a relatively new product and you would think Canon would keep it current. It worked fine under Windows 7, but I've upgraded so the printer is fairly useless as I do editing before printing.
Conclusion: This really is a great little printer. It was very easy to set up, and it delivers excellent quality dye sublimation 4x6 prints for my personal use. The only two things I don't like about it are inferior blacks (blacks that aren't quite black enough) and the elementary, almost juvenile, software that the printer is supplied with. Fortunately, I'm able to print directly to it from Photoshop.
Pros: price, print quality, ease of use and installation
