Nothing But Problems
I have had nothing but problems with this printer from the first day of use. Error messages that do not resolve by trouble shooting. Buttons that do not respond with actions they are designated for.

Extremely Poor Documentation
Of all the printers I could have purchased, I bought this one for one reason: To print labels on my own CD. There is a software program " My Image Garden" that is EXTREMELY USER UNFRIENDLY." I have spent about 3 hours trying to figure out how to print a CD (not one of Canon's predefined themse, but my own CD label.) Have yet to do so. I regret having purchased this machine, and the name CANON witll stick in my mind whenever to purchase ANY electronic product, camera, printer, or otherwise. Consider me an EXTREMELY UNHAPPY CUSTOMER. (BTW, for normal printing, the printer is OKAY. It's just the documentation and software that is son EXTREMELY poor.)

Off Line Issues
This printer goes to sleep and goes "off line" be sure to read the review about this issue, which I did before purchasing. Its not a great printer when you can not print when you need to and spend your time trying to trouble shoot the issue.

The people giving this printer bad reviews must not have the same printer I have. The printer I have is a great device. never loses connection with my wireless network. I can print from every computer in my house (3 of them), my tablet, and my smartphone. The setup is dead simple, the printer always works when I want it to, and the quality of the printing is great. Sure the printing is kind of slow, but not to the point that it annoys me.
