Outstanding printer for the price,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon PIXMA MP540 Printer (Electronics)
I am absolutely gob smacked by the quality of this printer. I have been using HP or Epson printers for the last 10 years and although they were good, they always had the same issues. Mainly it was the ink quality; forever drying out and causing streaky prints, which is for home printer that is not used every day, a very common occurrence.
I have had this for a while now and the print quality is still great; no streaky prints. The set up was easy too, with simple instructions. 5 print cartridges and one print head to install; I liked the little red lights that came on when you successfully plugged in each cartridge; only minor complaint was there were plenty of taped up parts which you need to remove before you even think about installing the print cartridges, but then again, there are a lot of delicate parts to protect in transist. All in all though, the quality of build, quality of print, speed and quietness is superb.
And then of course there is the scanner, which is more than capable. I have scanned in text documents and photos, just to see how it all works, and the quality is fantastic compared to my dedicated (if slightly old) scanner, and it is very quick too.
Thoroughly recommend the combined 3 in one printer.
(Update after 3 months - still no streaky prints and same print cartridges being used)
