I normally have bad luck with printers.
But not the MX410 so far and I have owned it about a year or more. because of my past bad experiences I did purchase a 3 year extended warranty for this. It works like a champ.
My first printer was a canon. I replaced it after using it for 5 years because I wanted a printer that I could print photographs with. Every printer i bought after that first one had all kinds of issues. They'd struggle along until about a day or two after the warranty expired and then they would die.
So this time I went back to Canon. My son had it set up in minutes. We tested it by having it print a photo I'd taken with my digital camera. It produced a professional quality pic that was better than what I used to get from stores that processed my 35mm photos.
If anything happens that causes me to change my mind I'll try to edit and update this review. If you see no updates that is good news.

Easy to use, quality is fine, price was a steal. No problem at all with performance or quality. The thing eats ink, have to replace ink cartridge way too often. Have had Canon that cost more but did not drink ink. Will spend more next time and research ink cost per copy first. Would not rebuy, although I have a second one I use at home, bought before realized ink hog. Will not recommend.
