Summary (In addition to earlier review) It is hard to find a good printer that is functional and easy to use. I bought a cheap printer (HP) for $30 and took it back. The HP program it came with downloaded a bunch of s@#$ like a lot of spam type material, and jammed up my computer. Never again will I buy HP or a cheap printer. This Cannon was still a good price, and the bonus was that it came with two black cartridges, one that was large size. I am able to refill the ink myself, but I had to get a sharp needle (from the hospital) to get it to pierce through the hole (it was small). The price of the computer was worth the ink cartridges alone. I also like the fact that you can program it to print black only, and has a decent draft option too. Not all printers have this feature which I don't understand.
Most of the time you don't know what you are buying when you buy a printer until you get it home and use it. By then it can be too late. And a lot of people don't know what to look for. To those people I say: Buy this printer!
I also had a Cannon prior to this one, and it lasted for 10 years. That is good, especially when I hear that most printers only last two years. I have been very happy with their brand.
Pros Duplex printing, quiet compared to other printers, you can see the ink in the cartridges, 2 paper loading trays, The screen and controls are easy and quick to get through. Very nice maintaince software for cleaning, aligning and adjusting color.
Cons The cover over the scanner is not as heavy as I would like it to be but an okay trade off for the other features. Some have said the print software was not that good. I use more than one programs to touch up photos and graphics so not an issue for me
Summary I recommend this printer not only for the price but the features it provides at that price. I will no longer buy and HP because their customer service is so bad.
Pros Easy networking...
Solid little performer
Cons No ethernet
Summary Wht are there 3 different printer models referenced as the SAME printer in this review? MP560, MP980, and MX700 - ALL casually mentioned as the same printer throughout the review. Leads a review reader to be distinctly uncertain of what printer the reviewer was actually talking about. It also makes one wonder whether the grand old job of editor is no longer viable in today's world of "teh interwebs."
Pros Price, and duplex printing saves paper. Quality is good for my needs and I do not print a lot so speed is acceptable. Wireless set up was a snap and works great. Have not had any problems at all.
Cons None for me.
Summary Replaced an older HP printer and Cannon Scanner to incorporate in one unit and go wireless. Very happy with all functions in this printer.
Pros - Easy Windows setup
- Good speed
- Excellent value and quality
- Wi-Fi capability
- Decent software
Cons - No standalone fax capability
Summary I bought this product to replace a separate printer (Canon IP4200) and ancient Acer 620UT flatbed scanner. Setup was a snap. Print quality is excellent. I use the W-Fi capability to share this unit between my XP desktop system and Windows 7 laptop. I used Canon's e-mail customer support the day after Christmas to confirm that I could use both USB and wireless connectivity and received an affirmative answer that same day.
