Printer is fine, driver support is terrible
The printing function is more than acceptable.
The wireless setup is terrible.
The scanning setup and operation is pretty poor and unrealiable.
It is a shame the printer is good, the Cannon website is not user friendly.

Don't waste your time and money with this one
I've had this printer for over a year, and just as the other reviewers said, the wifi does not work! I've wasted alot of my time trying to get this to work that way. So frustrating!

Awful wireless in a decent machine
I've been using this printer for nearly a year, and I've never been able to get the wireless connection to work for more than a week at a time. Otherwise it's fine, but I feel I paid a premium for wireless that doesn't work!

Can't get wireless working
Works great while the USB is connected but I cannot get the wireless feature working. After searching the internet it seems like a lot of people are having the same problem.. and it really irritates me.. i have wasted a lot of time. We bought it for the wireless feature as our computer is not near the printer.. so we have to unplug it every time we want to print.
