Printer good, beware the installation traps!
26 July 2018
TS 5050 Just arrived to replace a similar printer which had gone west after 3 yrs. Its in and working and is smaller than the printer it replaces, most of the setup was easy, but...As you go through the installation procedures on your computer, Canon says "you are missing some drivers to Fix it click here" on a nice bright green button which leads to a screen which invites you to pay $9.99 (in the UK) to get the drivers and "optimisation." Read the small print and this is a $9.99 monthly subscription!
I didn't do it, though it would have been easy to go along with it. I googled installation and found the drivers and support on the Canon website for free. The printer seems to be working fine from my computer and phone.
Nice printer: shame on you Canon for trying to rope people in to pay more and shame on you Amazon for allowing a company to do this with a product from your website. Almost a deception in my view.
