good performer but expensive on ink and slow noisy start-up
on 15 October 2014
It is efficient, good quality prints, photos and copies; scans fairly easily once you are familiar with the routine; wi-fi seems to work well with the i-Mac.
However, irritatingly slow start up while it "prepares" itself, clattering away before the front face slams down to open the print tray. Canon inks (2 black, 1cyan, 1 magenta, 1 yellow) ridiculously expensive and don't seem to last long with hardly heavy usage before at least one gives the low warning signal.
The old HP7150 still provides a useful alternative printer off the pc, albeit not a multifunctional.
