nice LITTLE printer
I love the small size and the quality of the prints. I downloaded the drivers from Canon's web site which gives me so much control of printing. It comes with a CD but my laptop won't play CD's. I do miss the pic bridge Feature I had on my previous printer for direct printing from my camera because now I have to down load to the laptop but for the low price it does a fine job...

This little prnter is obviously not professional grade in features or construction, but it is an incredible bargain for the persson who just needs a printer occasionally, or is not engaged in high-output printing. The print quality is really amazingly good, and throughput, though not lightning fast, is fine for home use, and especially for a second machiine. I am frankly impressed with what Canon has been able to produce at a really good price point. A gem for students and a home office with modest demands. I espencially like the ample ink tanks! Go buy one for yourself or your kids!

I wanted JUST a printer, and one at a good price. This item is JUST right. Good quality, easy to set up and use and easy to disconnect and store. I use it with my laptop, and it is perfect for my minimal needs. Great product, Thanks.

works but needs ink
but probably will need ink cartridge soon
small ink cartridges these days, so you have to get a new cartridge often
95 % of what I need it for is B and W printing

Photo print speeds are based on the standard mode driver setting using photo test pattern(s) and select Canon Photo Paper. Print speed is measured as soon as first page begins to feed into printer and will vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, types of paper used and page coverage. See www.usa.canon.com/printspeed for additional information.
ISO/IEC 24734, 24735 define the default print and copy speed measurement methods. Print speeds are the averages of ESAT in Office Category Test for the default simplex mode, ISO/IEC 24734, excluding time to print the first set. Copy speed is the average of FCOT, ISO/IEC 24735 Annex D. See www.usa.canon.com/ipm for additional information.
Based on accelerated testing by Canon in dark storage under controlled temperature, humidity and gas conditions, simulating storage in an album with plastic sleeves. Canon cannot guarantee the longevity of prints; results may vary depending on printed image, drying time, display/storage conditions and environmental factors. See www.usa.canon.com/chromalife100plus for additional information.
Resolution may vary based on printer driver setting. Color ink droplets can be placed with a horizontal pitch of 1/4800 inch at minimum.
Supported paper types for borderless printing are as follows: Photo Paper Pro Platinum, Photo Paper Pro II, Photo Paper Plus Glossy II, Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss, Photo Paper Glossy and Matte Photo Paper.
