"Great Printer for the price. Leaves HP 6310 in the dust"4.5 starson by genesis51
Pros: Fast scanning, reasonable software, quick set-up
Cons: None so far
Summary: I had a 6310 HP that I took back to Sam's Club. I wasted a day's worth of time trying to justify my years of loyalty to HP. It's a sad thing but HP has fallen a great distance in quality and customer support.
I bought the Canon MX700 at Best Buy and it was a breeze right out of the box. The unit itself is solid (unlike the HP 6310) and both paper feeders (frint and back) are solid. The software loaded easily.
The only "glitches" I had were minor in that you need:
1. To have your own USB cord
2. Connect the USB directly to the computer and not a hub.
After that it was effortless.
It integrates seamlessly with the "My Pictures" scanner function and the packaged software the MX 700 comes with is intuitive to work with.
Better yet, the OEM CLI cartriges are inexpensive. The refills/remanufatured cartridges are even less.
I'm now a Canon customer.
