Good product for the price
I have used this printer for about three months and found it to be easy to use, gives excellent copies, and is fairly fast. When my old printer died I looked for a new one with a name I trusted and some new features. The ability to print on both sides of the paper in one operation sold me on this model. The price was well within my budget and, although it is larger than my old printer, it still fit in the same place. Also like the ability to set up for black & white or color, saves a lot on ink. I have not used the scan feature as yet but it looks easy. All in all, I'm quite happy with this printer.

This printer worked great for a few months before it stopped feeding paper. The feed roll maintenance routine was useless, the printer is just completely dead. I must have dared to print almost 100 pages before it stopped working.

Good for the basics.
I've had this printer for over six months now, and two cartridge changes. The hardware works well for me. The ink was easy to replace and I've had no errors after those ink changes. I use it for school papers and printing out scrapbook embellishments. The one free photos I printed I want especially pleased with the results, but wasn't expecting quality for the price I paid.

Produces clear sharp pictures and text
It has been a year now, and my Canon still works perfectly. The XL cartridges outlasts 2 reams of 8x11 paper. Don't change ink cartridges when low ink appears, wait until you notice your last sheet missing letters, which should be after 40 (at least) sheets have passed. Pictures come out brilliant as well. I like the 4x6 and 8x11 photo size choice button feature. Because I know what I want from reading the specs I buy Canon products on-line, saves me time and money. This is a quality product deserving 5 star rating.
