I am not lucky with printers probably because I make my own greeting cards and have trouble with paper feed due to the thickness of the card.
The previous model MP270 had been recommended to me but as it has been discontinued I ordered this one and Amazon delivered it the next day.
The printer arrived with a USB cable and ink cartiridges.
So far it has handled every type of paper that I have tried, and also quite heavy cardstock.
I cannot recommend it highly enough to crafters, or anyone else that needs a very reasonably priced excellent printer.

I bought this to replace a faulty I455 printer and did not really need an all-in-one but the price was cheaper than a dedicated printer. However, the trade-off is that the printer is almost twice the size of the I455 (and heavier), a significant factor since it is used with two laptops so is hardly in the same place twice. Canon have decided to place the two cable connections (power and USB) on opposite sides of the machine which means extra space is required on each side. However, the machine is much quieter than the I455 and the quality of prints is outstanding.

Buttons are provided on the top to allow direct copying without using a PC and the device is supplied with compehensive software to allow printing and scanning with minimum fuss. Installation was straight-forward and only took a few minutes to complete.

The biggest problem with the printer is the cost of replacement ink cartridges. The replacements are chipped and come complete with new print heads which guarantees good quality printing but at a very heavy cost. Also the Canon original cartridges have very little ink so do not last very long (larger capacity cartridges are available but at a premium), the colour cartidge lasted all of three days before it reported as 'running low' by the software.

I have managed to source alternative remanufactured cartridges which contain more ink but the software for this printer has no way of manually resetting the ink levels so the PC is constantly warning of low ink once the new cartridges are installed. However the printer still works beautifully though I have no way of knowing when it is running low on ink.

Overall, an excellent purchase for the price but beware the replacement ink costs if you do a lot of printing.

My old HP all in one died after eight years of continuous sterling service. It didn't like remanufactured black cartridges, but thankfully was not averse to the cheaper colour ones, and also I could easily get an extra week's worth of printing after the first prompt that ink was running low. I really could use the ink to the very last drop. Photo printing was also very good for an all in one.

While the HP was in it's death throes, I bought a Canon iP4500 photo printer, and began using that for everyday printing as well. Admittedly a bit more expensive than the MP280, it was very quiet, fast and smooth, and separate four colour cartridges plus black meant that I could buy the black, which of course always runs out first, very cheaply. The cartridges lasted well, and also allowed me a good deal of printing after the 'ink low' notification.

I soon missed the convenience of an all in one however, and because the iP4500 was so good, I decided to get the MP280 on the strength of the some of the good reviews and because it was much cheaper from Amazon than say Staples.

The first time I used the printer I nearly jumped out of my skin. It is VERY noisy, and the reviewer who said it does a lot of clattering backwards and forwards before it decides to print is quite right. That wouldn't matter so much if you could position it some distance away, but mine is right by my left ear on the table. I don't understand why it has to be so noisy - surely Canon is capable of making a printer that is quiet as well as cheap? Maybe not.

It is slow, and not at all smooth. Sometimes it pauses halfway through printing a page, as if thinking what to do next. Other times it prints in jerks, and only occasionally will a page go through smoothly.

Don't know why some say its slow, when that's simply not the case, if you have it on standard quality which is great it literally fires those pages right back at ya, whether it be colour (or) Black n' White... so 5/5. there ya go!!!...

The Design of the Printer a scanner has a small footprint, compared to its older siblings - and "they are much slower, as a matter of fact, my Canon MP610 is slower than this MP280".

As for the Bargain price with "4-5 free inks", sometimes its cheaper to buy the printer package, as it works out cheaper and sell the new printer on to a friend, or just give it away. (easy)

However, because I'm very happy with the (One 2 One 'Photo scans') I will be holding on to this baby, the INK is much cheaper at around £25-£30 from Amazon for original Canon INK. (Great Value)

and it will last for ages, providing your not doing pictures every day, about every 3 months I place new ink in my canon ink-[jets, for colour "printing from the Web", (regular) say 5-6% coverage.

It's very economical if your just doing black n' white only. seriously about 3p per page. (roughly) from top to bottom.

Also this model has a (new and improved multi-scan, head cleaner), which means "if you do NOT use a printer a lot" it cleans those Print Heads like *NEW*" ...Once you switch on the Printer.!! -: so, its very well thought through by Canon. So it also means there are no ink tram lines up your clean new paper. just like the day you took it out of the box.
