Good, but Loud 07/16/2013
Easy wireless connectivity. Following the poster-sized instructions which came with the printer, the WPS connection to our router took half a minute.
Fast Printing with good color.
Simple Ink cartridges. Instead of 3 different color cartridges, there is just one "color cartridge" and one "Black cartridge".
Multiple functions (Print, Scan, Photocopy, Fax). I've only used Print and Photocopy, both of which worked just fine in B&W and in Color.
Loud. This printer is replacing the our previous, 5-year-old Cannon InkJet printer. The moving pieces in this printer are extraordinarily noticeably louder than our previous model. The whole unit sounds loud, clumsy, and hollow in contrast to the calculated tight movements in our previous Cannon model (pixma something or other).
Even though I listed it as a Pro for simplicity, I have reservations about the single ink cartridge for "Color"s. With our previous printer, I noticed we would use more of one color than the rest (yellow: google maps. go figure). But now with this single cartridge for all the ink colors, the whole cartridge will need to be replaced if only 1 color runs out. That seems wasteful and seems like we'll end up spending more money on ink over a similar amount of time,
I have not yet scanned anything aside from a photocopy. I assume from "scanner" being in the tech description than I can scan a physical photo/handout and digitize it to a file on my computer.
I probably won't end up using the fax feature.
