Doesn't Print Reliably
Bought this because I needed a wireless printer. Had an older Canon that always worked well. This one does not. I have a new Windows 8 computer and when I go to print, it starts then hangs. I have reinstalled software, checked firmware, etc multiple times to no avail. Really not worth the trouble when you consider the expense of the cartridges.

PIXMA haa compatibility issues with WIN 8
I purchased my MG3120 several months ago and was satisfied with it up until I recently purchased a new PC running Windows 8 64 bit.
When I attempted to install the printer to my new PC, I kept getting an error message 001 002 and installation ceases.
I've tried everything I could think of including downloading new drivers from Canon's website.
I researched this on the web, and countless people have this problem with several models of Canon printers. There does not appear to be a solution available.
I would recommend against buying Canon products if you have WIN 8 or plan on getting a new PC.

great features for such a low price
Using Win8 I had some set up issues when trying to install MP Driver. I then went to the Canon site and in just a second it was complete. I am blown away that the quality is so good from an inexpensive printer. I was also pleasantly surprised that it had easy duplex printing.
I recommend this to anyone looking for a quality upgrade or a good first printer.

From the start, the image quality was poor but the printer was cheap, so I didn't expect much. However, after 8 months, it wouldn't print correctly and air print stopped working as well. I did all the "usual" maintenance and nothing worked. I teach computer repair, so I know what I'm doing. This was by far the worst printer I've ever owned. I guess you get what you pay for. My last two printers were both Pixma's and they're the last two Canon printers I'll ever buy.
