"Awesome printer"on by pickle430
Pros I haven't had any problems with it would of gave it 5/5 but the ink prices.
Cons ink costs I just think that they could of lowered the price a lil.
Pros Perfect for my house as we need a wireless printer, however we have a great all in one with fax but no wireless. Due to the low price we got the canon for printing only. Quick nice printing.
Cons Makes a lot of noise. will not scan wireless as other I have had does.
Summary Best low-cost wireless printer I could find, with great copy quality. we have a house full of laptops so this works great for this reason. We have a different print scan copy fax not wireless, it still is cheaper to buy the two separate ones vs. the all in one with fax and wifi. Ink is cheaper than my other printers I have had.
Pros Cheap-60 bucks at walmart, easy printing, scanning, and copying. Scanning quality is remarkable, wireless function works like a charm, doesn't hurt to look at.
Cons Initial wireless set-up was a pain, had to download the OS X Lion drivers.
Summary I am going to college soon, and I needed a good printer, and this one seemed like the best for the price at walmart. So far I am loving this printer. It prints decently fast, however I have nothing to compare it to since the only printer I've used was an ancient deskjet. The first thing that blew me away was the quality of scanned photos. I took my 12" x 24" class graduation photo (which was professionally done) and stuck as much of it under the scanner. The quality of the photo that came out was remarkable. It retained all of the vivid color and glossy look, even though it was one cheap copy paper. I was very impressed.
They only things that middy bugged me was A) if your using os x lion you minus well throw out the disk since you need to download the 10.7 driver from the canon website and B) wireless setup was a pain. To clarify, set-up wasn't a pain, but the fact that when the printer is plugged into the computer via usb it shows up as a different printer than when it is in wireless mode (but both "printers" have the same name). I didn't realize this at first, but what you have to do is add another printer when it is in wireless mode and select it again. Otherwise it works like a charm and was a steal for the price. Highly recommend!
Pros Good price for all-in-one
Cons Frustrating to get and keep connected to securred network. Poor instructions.
Summary Probably won't buy another until they make it more user friendly.
Pros Prints well & pretty fast
Cons Technical instructions and assistance in setting up wirelessly are horrible. Their website is a supermarket and has no useful information.
Summary Makes me think twice about buying another Cannon product
