I don't print envelopes....
but I do a lot of other stuff, and this printer is FANTASTIC. My old Cannon Pixma took a digger after 8 years of service, and it was time to buy a new one. I've spent the last couple of weeks closing on a house, making it necessary to print, copy, scan, and email multiple page documents. I have been extremely satisfied with the printer. In fact, it's been a life-saver for me, and I doubt I would have been able to close on time without having the printer in my house.
I have no idea about ink usage or envelopes or some of the other things that folks have griped about here. What I know is that this thing worked marvelously for me. It has a ton of features, and the ability to feed multiple page documents is a huge plus, especially for the price. I'm very happy with the purchase.
Cons? It's big. That's it. It's bigger than I'd like it to be. I'll get over it. In fact, I might just buy a bigger desk.

DO NOT BUY! Horrible ink usage & customer service
I purchased this printer to replace an old Canon Pixma that I had been fairly happy with. However, after 3 weeks, I ran out of ink. On my old PIXMA, I was used to going several months without replacing any ink. I had not changed my printing habits and I used the "fast" option for most print-jobs to conserve ink. I called Canon to find out if the printer, when new, comes with less than full ink, and I was assured that full ink cartridges are provided with the new printer. In that case, I decided that I wanted to return the printer because I could not believe how bad the ink usage was. I did not want to have to buy new ink every month or so! But Canon cited a 14 day return policy and would not allow me to return the printer. So please beware...

Not suitable for office environment
This printer is very good at printing documents and photos however it should not be used in office environments. It's a real hassle to print envelopes and documents at the same time. Since there is no separate tray for envelopes you have to physically remove all the paper from the bottom tray before you load envelopes.
This may be a deal breaker for many people.

It seems to be a quality printer. I bought it to replace my mx860. It is faster and the color quality seems to be better
