Good: At first glance and use it seemed one of the best value multi-functions
Bad: With use it has turned out to be an abysmal piece of expensive garbage. Confusing software.No utility, you have to decode the printer display. No scanning when ink runs out. No indication of which cartridge has run out.
Comment: Dreadful, dreadful printer that is almost impossible to use. Plug it in and it seems to be just what the photographer ordered, but that will not last long.
You will spend hours trying to figure out what has gone wrong. The software is aggressive (the 'Solutions menu' will stick itself on your doc at any opportunity) and does not even have an ink check that I can find. All the issues are displayed in a secret code on the printers tiny display board, and you have to find and read the hidden manuel on your computer to find out what it means. Solutions my arse!
The display does not even tell you which cartridge has run out FFS! Are you supposed to replace both!? You'll need lots of money because, despite this review says, it seems to eat ink.
It is impossible to refill the cartridges yourself, fair do's, but I'd wished I'd known; but the fact the scanner will not work if the ink runs out is not acceptable. The fact HP and Kodak do the same shows that technical reviews are not doing their job. It should be the first thing at the top of the review, then the manufactures will stop this wholly unacceptable, robbing trick.
Avoid this, and I would suggest avoid Canon.
