    5.0 out of 5 stars Canon PIXMA MP-990 22 Dec 2009
    Verified Purchase
    This machine was purchased to replace a fully functioning, but rarely used Epson 870 photo printer and more importantly, an HP3100 all in one printer.

    The separate inks mean we're only buying to replace what we need; We've done maybe 40? A4 prints on Ilford gloss paper and have just needed to replace the grey cartridge. The black shows almost zero useage - which is what I would expect to see.

    Setting up on WiFi was very easy.

    Print quality on draft documents is fine and, double sided printing is easy to set.

    Photo images taken on anything from an iPhone (3mp) to a Canon G9 (12mp) are coming out really well. Note: We've now discovered how much of a difference good quality paper makes to the finished output.

    Scanning 35mm slides/negatives is reasonably straightforward and results are O.K. This is the first time I've tried a film scanner, so I'm still gettting to grips with it. Suffice to say it can do a very reasonable job and I've even put 120 and 126 slides in to be scanned ( not with the carrier ) and this turned out good as well.

    Very pleased with this Printer so far! 5 Stars.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Peak Pixma 11 Feb 2010
    Verified Purchase
    This multifunction printer is, so far, meeting all my expectations. Solid construction, good documentation & set up a breeze. Quite large & heavy - this reflects the specification & build quality.

    I wanted: a home use multifunction printer/scanner/copier with proper photo capability and without the essentially useless excess real estate of a fax. This model has no fax but has the added benefit of a slide/negative scanner.

    Had it for a few weeks now & all working exactly as it should on Ethernet - not tried USB. True I've bottled & haven't tried to set up the wireless capability, so can't comment on that.

    There's no document feeder but that's no big deal for a photoprinter - there is built in duplex printing which while not exactly speedy, is fine for paper-saving.
    Don't be put off if, when you get it out of the box there seems to be no negative carrier - it's under the copier lid, behind the platen pressure pad.

    The film scanner is a proper one with a lamp in the copier lid for transmitted light scanning, but only 6 negatives or 4 mounted slides at a time - still OK for home use but too slow for the professional. Good quality scans if you crank it up to 2400 dpi, but of course slow at that resolution.

    The Canon OCR software isn't up to that much but the rest seems to work pretty well, installed on Win 7 and XP.

    Six separate ink tanks (although two are black & one is grey, used only for monochrome prints as far as I can tell). This actually is sensible as the large black tank keeps the ordinary text printing side supplied while the photo inks are not used up. All the supplied tanks are full size as well, so you don't have to search & buy spares straight away.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Canon Mp990 printer 8 April 2010
    I've been searching for a decent printer which would satisfy my interests in photography. Having researched my needs on the net, this one fits the bill. It may not be perfect - on the negative side:

    - it used up the grey ink like it was going out of style. ( 11 x Black A4 / 8 x A4 colour/ 5 x 6 by 4 Black and 8 x 6 by 4 Colour prints)for one cartridge.
    - the ink cartridges seem to contain less ink with each new printer introduced by canon (this is my third over the years).
    - Inconsistant printing times for similar print sizes.
    - It chunters on (using up ink?) during printing.

    Having said that I was aware of the above problems before buying the printer but bought it because of the feedback on the quality of printing.

    On the positive side the print quality is excellent. I was impressed with the black and white prints which is the main reason I bought the printer in the first place. Once set up the colours were sharp and true to form.

    It is possible to buy more reasonably priced compatible cartridges from the net but I cannot vouch for the quality of the results as I have not tried any as yet. I'd appreciate any suggestions as to where to purchase good quality compatible inks.

    I have used the scanner a few times and once again was impressed with the results. So far I have not used the duplex printing or Cd printing options.

    All in all I am pleased with my purchase from Amazon as their service is second to none and I have used them on numerous occassions without any problems.

    The MP990 is a good all in one printer which I would recommend to anyone with a limited budget and space in which to work.

    5.0 out of 5 stars WOW - It simply works! 11 Mar 2010
    Bought this through Amazon - set up and now part of a 'Mac' network ( imac, MBP and Time Capsule) within 30mins.

    Will scan to multiple Macs, prints amazing photos, love it, love it, love it!

    On a completely aesthetic front, it matches the current imac model perfectly and the front flap opens automatically!!

    If you can stretch to the few extra quid for this model compared to the mp640 - DO IT! You wont regret it.
