I tend to go with Canon because their customer service and after-sales support is so good. This little Pixma was purchased primarily for my daughter who prints homework assignments and scans her original art. It does the job, and we haven't had any real problems, but it prints very slowly. My main disappointment, though, is that it doesn't use the standard Pixma ink cartridges, and finding the ones it does take is a huge pain. Also, changing the cartridges is very awkward. The scan bed doesn't open up, as one would expect. You have to go under the paper tray, and reach your fingers deep into the unit to get them in and out. Very bad design.
I received this printer a few days ago, and the first thing that struck me was how big this printer is, at least 3x the size of my Epson 2630, but by far far this is the best printer I have ever had, the display is full color and a touch screen very easy to use and set up, the ink if you purchase a xl does 1100 copies before needs replacement, v/s 250 on my 2630, the speed at which this printer prints is amazing and only takes seconds to print a page , the images are crisp and clear far clearer than my old printer, also it has a tray below which holds around a half a pack of paper which makes it nice that I'm not always adding more. It comes with a printer port, Ethernet port and wireless and during setup you can choose which one serves your needs, the built in scanner is huge and does documents up to 11x17 much larger than most. The fax built in is easy to use and a breeze to set up. For the price this is well worth the investment in just ink savings alone. I would highly recommend this printer to anyone who wants professional quialty at a reasonable price.
