Can't really fault it. My HP finally broke down on me, after too much frustration with everything! I paid £70 for that heap of junk and it's not even half as good as this printer. It's actually white and grey, which I didn't really see so clearly from the picture on Amazon. It's grey on the top, above the Cannon logo, then the rest is white. Goes with my iMac a treat.

A doddle to set up. It only comes with a Windows installation disc, so that went promptly in the bin. No worries, once it was plugged in and connected with the cable, I just went into System Preferences, then printer/scan and it was already in the menu, I just had to select it, done. It's good practice to do an alignment test, with new printers and new ink, so I did that, don't worry, it takes a long time, it's not jammed or anything, just let it finish and complete the test by running a scan, it will tell you to do this on the alignment printout.

It has lots of choices, my favourite is the auto power off switch to any time you want, and I like that you can opt for the quite mode too, this is a handy feature because before I knew this, it was making me jump a little, every time the paper feed started..not cool. Anyway, now that's sorted, just bear in mind, it will print a tad slower in this mode but nothing too noticeable to bother you.

I also love the way it scans. My HP would decide to scan my papers upside down, even when it was set correctly, with this Cannon, you just put it in and it prints the correct way with no setting up.

Another feature which is just brilliant for me, is that I can choose just to use black ink only, so that when I run out, least I can do something in dark blue until the next replacement arrives. I don't know how long it lasts, so I can't give a review on that, but in the future, I will be buying the XL Twin packs from advantage. They sell premium ink at half the cost of your usual replacements, but then HP were dreadful on ink anyway, thank god that's over with!

Happy Days for me. It's not the best build quality, but what do you expect for £17 quid! A complete bargain for what you get. You won't be disappointed. My only gripe, is the way Amazon lists the added ink and cable. It says buy this ink and cable, when you purchase the printer, (in which I'm sure a lot of people need to do) so why on earth does it not come together from the same seller? How ridiculous. The seller was kind enough to notify me on this, his communication was prompt and professional. I needed it urgently and asked him to send it asap and he did, so I'm very grateful for that. However, my cable turned up nearly 10 days later from another seller, not so courteous. If I didn't have a spare....well.

Luckily for me, I had the old cable, and my ink arrived before the printer, so it worked out fine, but this is not the best way to sell a printer. I shall definitely look out for that next time, and make sure that all the parts come from the same seller.

Still, sometimes a little grief is worth it, in this case it was.

Stinking cheap and just right for my limited home use. You'll need to buy the inks separately and they are very inexpensive - note that there two cartridges.

I bought this printer to replace an older Canon model which had given up the ghost after 8 years of good, uncomplicated service.
My first impression was that this one was far less user-friendly, but I thought I'd get used to it .......until I discovered that it will
not print A4 photos! Thinking I'd overlooked something, I contacted Canon customer support and was informed that "A4 photo paper is not a supported media type". It will only take two sizes - 10x15 cm and 13 x18 cm.
Well, maybe I should have read the technical specifications before buying it, but surely this is something most people would take for granted. I'm very disappointed.

It's good and affordable. The only thing I hate about it that you have to have both inc cartridges with enough ink for anything to function. I had only the black ink and wanted to scan but it refused to work until I bought the color ink cartridge. This is a general problem to All-In-One and not this one specifically though.

Well this one is an interesting one. I bought it because of people reviews but deep down did not expected much as long as it prints I would be happy.
Prints very well indeed, it is very light so I can put it on the shelf above my computer so now I have more space on the desk.
I had an old scanner before so I expected that this scanner is more or less the same quality and yes it is good too so no complaints here.
I would not say it is a quiet one but also not noisy one too. It is OK. Nobody wakes up in the house when I print in the morning.
The good think about scanner is that once something is scanned it saves in the correct format for e-mails so I can scan something and it is ready to go.
It prints automatically but the printer has to be turned on manually which is not a problem.
The only thing I do not like there is no icon of the scanner on the desktop so I can go straight into. I have to go to control panel then select printers, scanners and then I can scan. A bit too long way round for me. Maybe it is just me and my computer. But who can complain if you pay as little as this.Good price and good product.
