Canon PIXMA MX452 Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

4 out of 5 eggs Good, but Loud 07/16/2013

This review is from: Canon PIXMA MX452 Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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,

Other Thoughts: 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.

Pros: [1920X1200]
Upgraded from HD5830 to HD7870. Noticeable difference in some games which were not happy when I had AntiAliasing and other similar effects turned up.

Cons: none

SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-Size Gaming Headset - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: They seem to be made of stern quality, not flimsy at all. The sound is great. The retractable Mic is "fun", but I wonder how long before that moving part will wear out?

The entire unit weighs less than it appears to (from images) and feels comfortable on my head.

The padding/insulation around the earpieces isn't anything unexpected... by me. but apparently my wife thinks these things are causing a rift in our relationship as I no longer respond to her when she's in the same room. That's a pro for the headset, but a con against me as a person. Oops; will work on that, sweetie.

Overall, great product. I am not let down by my first full-sized gaming headset.

Cons: Not sure if this counts: My previous cheap headset came with an adapter which converted the standard ministereo plugs for Mic+Speaker to USB. This headset is not recognized by Windows OS when used with that adapter. Bummer. That adapter had made life so much easier.
