I couldn't decide on a craft printer - but Best buy had a pretty decent Black Friday deal and I took a chance.
This is an amazing crafting printer. It prints photos, labels for cd/dvd, has NO issue with thick, textured card stock or standardized scrap-booking paper and the resolution is phenomenal. I have printed a couple photos and it looks better and crisper than you can get through CVS/Walgreens/ETC. I got this before Christmas and all of my decorating, gifting and labels (mason jars and address labels) are so fast and easy. I love this printer. I got the gold one - it looks like Iron Man. We called it Uni-Beam.
A lot of people complained that it was difficult to set up and to be frank, if I didn't already enjoy a bit of programming and device troubleshooting, the set up may have proved to be annoying. It took about 40 min from start to finish to plug the sucker in, set it up/register/install drivers on my laptop and get my phone to work and communicate. I would ask a younger member of the family to be around if you are unsure of how phones, computers, printers, drivers, and the cloud talk to each other. Of if any of the above makes you nervous because you aren't sure what I'm talking about. It was worth the slight annoyance tho. It really does print from your phone apps - but it's not AS user friendly as one would hope but I'm sure it has to do with the app and not the printer. The Instagram photo printing is an awesome feature.
The printer cannot print large scrapbook pages FYI - BUT I'm not that kind of scrapper so I don't personally care.
Also, I have printed so many things and a few photos since November and the ink levels haven't even depleted.
I recommend this printer to anyone who likes to work with labels, printables, personalized crafting, photo crafts, and adding that extra touch to something handmade.
I would NOT recommend installing the Canon bloatware that came with it - you do NOT need it and if you run Photoshop OR ANYTHING ELSE, you can avoid the hassle of malware removal.

Excellent all-round unit
Posted by: RRboots from: on
Went into Best Buy to purchase a lower priced machine I'd researched, but once there saw the advantages to spending a bit more money for this particular Canon printer and am very glad I did. I'm not a very tech-savvy person and this was a breeze to set-up. Once powered on it practically set itself up, picking up the WiFi in my apt. I simply followed along and pressed OK along the way. I was printing in minutes. Even the scanner was easier than units I had before. The quality is as good as I've seen and better than I've ever had. Couldn't be happier and more pleased with this purchase.

I am surprised by the great reviews. I am completely underwhelemed with my printer. It functioned fine and I think this would be a good second printer. But, the paper tray is so small, I can'try get through one project without having to refill the printer tray multiple times. Most importantly, the ink doesn't last very long...okay they are small units, but the cost of the ink is high in the long run. Like I said, would be a good second printer, but not a good primary printer. B

Great, but some minor negatives
Posted by: Dlescal from: Hagerstown, MD on
Having been an owner of many printers over the years, this was my 2nd Canon Pixma purchase. I had a 6821 which was absolutely fantastic. This was a theoretical upgrade being a higher series and similarly spec'd. Print quality is equal, which is to say fantastic!! It's faster and maybe a little quieter. It uses 6 ink tanks which I prefer over 5 for better greys and b&w prints. Easy to setup and uses AirPrint which was desirable for me over the last model I had. 2 major downers for me: 1, no rear paper tray for photos and 2, the screen doesn't adjust the angle (6821 did) which is minor but it's a pain when you cannot see it while sitting.
Overall, fantastic printer and a great value. Buy Canin paper and you'll love what you get!

I love the printer's look, features, and functionality, and am very impressed with the print quality. I have set my printer to turn on automatically when I print, then off when idle 15 minutes, so I don't have to do this manually each time I use it..

Excellent print quality, fast printing
Posted by: TomJ from: on
I love this printer. It is fast and easy to use, and the setup was simple. When I had problems (paper jam) I referenced the online manual (a weighty tome!) and found out how to deal with the problem and the solution.
I haven't printed a lot of color, but the clarity and color of the prints were terrific on quality glossy picture paper. On matte finished card stock it wasn't as good - the blacks didn't pop out quite as well but other colors were still excellent. The ink seems to be reasonably priced for the the amount of printing I can do with it. Get the XL size ones. one weird thing (maybe a setup issue on my part) is that black copies used up color ink. It should only use black.
Pros - speed, quality, easy setup.
Cons - no rear tray for heavy paper.

Canon Printers are reliable and reasonably priced
Posted by: tewally from: Madison WI on
I previously had a Canon printer and it lasted better than nine years. I did some research on another Canon printer and decided on the PIXMA MG7720. It was easy to set up and I like the fact that it's wireless. I bought this printer because I like to print photos and the Canon is supposed to be one of the best print quality for photos. I haven't tried it for photos yet but am happy with the print quality on word documents. The only thing I don't like is that it has the extra cartridge in gray. I usually purchase my cartridges separately instead of in a package with several colors because they all seem to run out at a different time. Having the gray makes it one more cartridge I have to purchase.

My 3rd Canon Pixma Printer
Posted by: Maxndon from: on
Because my previous Canon IP Pixma 6700 printer became unusable when I switched to Windows 10 recently I was in need of a new printer. Because I had good service and performance out of my two previous Canon printers I looked for another one. In talking to one of the Best Buy people from the Baxter store she recommended the Pixma MG 7720 as a very good all around printer and it was currently on sale @ Best Buy. I went on line and checked it out and read some of the reviews and made a choice to get one. I received the new printer in just a few days and was able to successfully get it up and running in a fairly short time. So far the use that I have had with the new printer has been very good. The old printer, however was easier to see when I needed paper and to be able to fill same. One other complaint that I might have is that there is no owner's/user's manual and to understand how to do things I have to pull up the manual on my screen. I look forward to learning more about the new printer as I know that it has many more capabilities than my old one had.
So far so good and I would say that I am glad that I made the purchase that I did.

Hard to set up at least for Macs
Posted by: Sunnie from: on
OK, so my computer person just finished getting the printer set. It took all afternoon. It was a harrowing experience for both of us and cost me more than twice what the printer cost. I think much time was lost because my computer is a Mac and the set up instructions are written for Windows, per Canon cudt
So following the instructions leads to a dead end with no clue why. Canon cust svc was helpful but had to call Apple Which cost another hour or so. Then back to Canon. Had to backtrack and another long session to finish. Also learned how to set up for scanning which I was told is again made more difficult by Apple.
So far first tries presented OK results. Speed OK but not great. Unable to use on Draft setting (it would just revert to higher setting which just wastes ink). I'll check in again if my upset from the setup wanes and no new problems arise.

I'd had a Canon MX older model printer for years and loved it ... it finally made a horrible noise and completely died which sent me running to the store in frantic search for a replacement. I never considered anything other than Canon. This printer is a fantastic replacement, it has all the bells and whistles a person could ask for, the only function missing is the sheet feeder. My old Canon had a hopper which allowed me to load all the pages of a document then it would feed them one at a time to make the copy. That's the only feature I miss but I still highly recommend this printer.
