When it comes to Canon, be it cameras, or printers, I invariably get "value for money", and in over twenty years so, have to have ONE PRODUCT fail.

Easily the Worst Printer I have Ever Used
We bought this printer as a desktop unit for one of our executives, to replace a Pixma 870 which had worn out over several years of use. (Unfortunately the 870 seems to be no more.)
BIG mistake. This has been the worst printer I have ever used in 35 years in IT - and I have seen some real duds.
It has endless problems with ink smearing, mis-feeds, poor software, irritating pop-ups and lousy network support.
The printer had so many problems with its internal sensors that we DEMANDED that Canon replace it after about 4 months. The replacement is now sitting on the workbench, having sucked in a stack of about 7 to 10 sheets of paper at a draw, and wrapped them around the drum, leaving absolutely no way to get at them to extract them.
Might be an okay printer for a home user who prints on single sheets, hand fed, and plugged into the PC with a USB cable.
For a business environment, accessed across a network (by just ONE user)? Forget it.

oh my, not again
Fax machine rarely works, spend hours on phone with support. BUT, the photos print really really clearly. Scanning is also a problem, but if you want to print, its great. Don't get if you like to fax or scan.
