"Only $50, wireless, easy setup, what do you need?"4.0 starson by bcsmith4361
Pros: Ease of use, good looks, functions well. I also like how the tray opens when you print. Also, includes USB printer cable, which most printers don't include.
Cons: The lid and covers are flimsy, but you don't open it that often anyway.
Summary: This printer was bought to replace a Lexmark 305. The Lexmark had a more solid feel and printed very nicely, but could not//would not keep the wireless connection. It would not connect, or stay connected, and no amount of uninstalling/re-installing the program helped. It was a printer that I really liked, so I kept it for copies only, but needed to have something I could rely on.
The Canon was cheaper, and initially, before it was set up, I was afraid that it was going to be a pain to set up because the manual is rather redundant and leads from one step to another and starts to repeat the process ad nauseam. After software installation, I was not directed to one of the processes as the manual said would happen(connecting the printer with USB cable). So, I started software again and this time everything went perfectly. After a few test pages I concluded that I made a good decision-everything was perfect! Excellent printer and good buy!!
