Not reliable - slow
The features are excellent when working. My three complaints are:
Prints many copies when I only select to print one. This has happened many times and drains my ink cartridges (which are obscenely expensive). This just happened moments ago when I discovered I had over 20 pages of the same thing. I assumed I was out of paper but 5 minutes later another page came out. A software bug that clearly benefits Canon's cash flow. And no, it is not user error, after the first occurrence I have been extremely cautious before hitting print.
Once you run out of one color, yellow for example, you cannot print ANYTHING! Not even a black ink document. This occurred recently and resulted in a late arrival to a meeting without the printouts. Not good.
Finally, and more an irritation, is the time it takes to warm up, It can take upwards of 5 minutes to print one page if the printer hasn't been used for awhile.

Good quality but slow
I've had this printer for about a week now. I found it very frustrating when trying to print directly from my laptop because a lot of the time it would say there was a communication error even though the printer is on and working correctly. I did the setup and everything on my laptop so there is no reason for it to be saying that. Most of the time I would have to move all the photos I want onto an SD card and print it from there. When printing for the first time of the day, it takes the printer a significantly long time for it to warm up. Longer than any printer I've ever had but after that first time it prints fine. Other than not being able to print from my computer and taking a long time to warm up, it's an excellent photo printer that prints good quality pictures.

This is my 4th. Canon photo printer, but my 1st. photo all in one printer. Both photo print and text quality are excellent, which is exactly what I'm accustom to getting from my Canon printers. This multi function device has far more features than I will ever need to use, and I like that, since I'm a firm believer that "it's better to have it and not need it than not have it and need it".
My favorite features are the built in scanner/copier, the ability to print directly to CD/DVD, and I'm especially fond of the two separate paper loading paths that make switching between photo paper and plain paper an effortless operation. This printer meets my needs perfectly and it looks great too.
