Another one of those gizmos that makes me feel lik
like I just lost 20 more IQ points. Includes a CD for installation--on my month old computer--that didn't come with a CD drive; and trying to find out how to install things without CD impossible. No decent explanation for how to connect to WiFi--although web search made it clear that some of us figured out how to do it despite Canon's directions. Would I buy it again? Tell you later if I ever get it working.

Won't stay connected to WiFi
Had this printer for about a year and my biggest complaint is that it will not stay connected to my WiFi network and the router is across the room. When trying to print from my iPad I have to reconnect the network about every other time, very annoying!!!

Sorry but this Canon is not a Canon
Wireless feature suddenly stopped working and we have been unable to get it back. So the only way to print/scan is to use the cable (or our old printer). The one feature highlighted as the selling point does not work. Spending way too much time trying to get this to work...

Dislike this printer
Others I have had in the past were great. Hate this one, it is forever making noise either loading ink or what pray tell, and it extremely slow. And when you first get it, it is set for photo, so it uses an extreme amount of ink. I had to call manufacture to find out how to change this feature. On-line manual is a joke. Very noisy & ink guzzler & you just can't order ink cartridges everywhere plus it requires a lot of them.
