Ugh. We've had this printer for a while now, 2 years maybe? What a pain. This printer is continually "offline". Or at least that's what it tells me every time I attempt to print anything. I've fiddled with it in a million ways ... unplugging, plugging in, holding the power button, troubleshooting, searching for and implementing dozens of step by step, how to fix your printer problem webpages etc. My husband finally hardwired the 'wireless' printer and voila - success ... until ... it was offline again? So frustrating. When it does print, the images are clear and good quality, but it's so rare that it actually prints, I can't say that the quality of the images matters much to me. (Side-note: there is not a back light on the display and I have to use a flashlight to see it if there isn't direct sunlight in the room.)

good product so far
some of the updates made to printer slow, or sometimes the printer needs to be re-install again. but the printer quality its really good, the borders and the image picture are great.

waste of money.
This is the worst printer ever, big footprint low quality. # of prints per cartridge sounds good till you see you have to change the setting to higher contrast to be able to just read the letters. Then Canon forces you to have to take it to one of their approved tech facility's when the ink absorber needs replacing because only they have the necessary software to do it. Just another way to to over charge you for a service other company's let you change the drum on your own, you buy it, replace it, and good to go. But not Canon. sickening I tell you.

It's an OK printer
I think that overall, this printer is decent. I still haven't figured out how to set up the fax after who knows how long, but that is not the real issue. The printer doesn't work well with refilled cartridges. If you go to Costco and refill it, the printer will still say that the ink is running low even though it's not. The only way to not encounter this problem is to buy new cartridges. It's becomes a real nuisance when you don't know how much ink is left. On the bright side, the printer works well and the ink does last a long time.

Wireless printing requires a working network with wireless 802.11b/g or n capability. Wireless performance may vary based on terrain and distance between the printer and wireless network clients.
The Public Switched Telephone Network currently supports fax modem speeds of 28.8 Kbps or lower, depending on telephone line conditions. Sending and receiving fax machines need to conform to ITU-T v.34 guidelines.
Supported paper types for borderless printing are as follows: Photo Paper Pro Platinum, Photo Paper Plus Glossy II, Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss, Photo Paper Glossy and Matte Photo Paper.
Full HD Movie Print allows printing from HD or Full HD "MOV" movie files created by Canon EOS Digital SLR or PowerShot digital cameras. From PC, or Mac with Intel® processor. Print quality is determined by video resolution. Function does not upscale video resolution. Requires Canon ZoomBrowser EX 6.5 or later, or Canon ImageBrowser 6.5 or later.
Requires Canon Easy-PhotoPrint for iPhone app, available for free on the App Store, or Canon Easy-PhotoPrint for Android app available for free in the Android Market. Compatible with iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices running Android OS 1.6 or later.
Requires mobile phone equipped with PictBridge technology and a USB cable.
Requires mobile phone (or other device) equipped with Bluetooth v2.0 technology and optional Canon Bluetooth Unit BU-30. Bluetooth operation depends on the device and software version used. Operating distance is approx. 10 meters but may vary due to obstacles, radio signals, locations where radio interference occurs, magnetic fields from microwave ovens, device sensitivity and/or antenna performance.
Resolution may vary based on printer driver setting. Color ink droplets can be placed with a horizontal pitch of 1/4800 inch at minimum.
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 details.
For network users, Auto Scan Mode is only available when scanning at a computer using MP Navigator EX software and selecting the 1-click feature then "Save to PC".
Page count is based on ITU-T No.1 chart or Canon FAX Standard Chart No.1.
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. ADF copy speed is the average of ESAT in General Performance Test for the default simplex mode, ISO/IEC 24735, excluding time to copy the first set. See www.usa.canon.com/ipm for additional details.
Black & white document fax transmission speed is based on default setting using ITU-T No.1 chart. Color document fax transmission speed is based on default setting using Canon Color Fax Test Sheet. Actual transmission speed vary depending on document complexity, fax setting at receiving end, and line conditions etc.
