Before you decide to pay out your hard earned money on this machine you need to know it's main drawback. It is made to waste ink. When the machine cleans itself (something over which you have no control), it cleans away ink from the cartridges. Expensive ink. When you turn it on it automatically cleans itself. Then every 3 or 4 minutes it cleans itself. If you leave it on overnight it will clean away all its ink and you'll have to buy another 5 cartridges. And when you turn it off it also cleans itself.
In this way Canon has made it so that you must buy lots and lots of their expensive ink. You have no choice in this and very soon you'll grow to hate this machine as it simply throws your money down the toilet. I have contacted Canon about this and they say the ink is also used as a lubricant in the machine. What nonsense. They also say that when all this ink that you've paid for fills up the waste ink reservoir then you have to send the whole machine back to Canon to be serviced.
Avoid this ripoff machine! I will never buy another Canon product.
