"Excellent machine in this price range."4.0 starson by pa4hair
Pros: Has all the features needed for a small home business or serious hobbyist. This printer more than replaces my old Pixma MP 780 with additional features of built in wireless options.
Cons: Control panel does not have a quick paper feed switch as with the MP 780. You need to switch through the menu settings or computer. When in wireless only mode the LCD disply does not go into screen saver or power saver mode.
Summary: The quality and features Canon is offering in this affordable Multi function printer is well worth its price. The set up is a little more involved then the MP 780 given that there is more to this printer. The only problems I incurred were due to my own router issues. You can set up the MX 860 in two of the three options. USB + wireless mode through your computer or USB + LAN through your wireless router. I did call Canon tech support with a couple questions and received excellent help.
