      A competent all-in-one with a small footprint

      Disclaimer: this review is made after only 3-weeks of ownership/use. Clearly future issues could arise which would influence this review if they were to be known in advance. First, began researching for new inkjet all-in-one printer about 3-months ago to replace older HP 7520 (good printer by the way - didn't have issues with it). While my subscription to CU strongly suggested another HP (same model line as my outgoing printer, but a modern one) I opted to look beyond HP. The PIXMA 922 is a recommended printer in CU's ratings. What I found when I went looking for customer reviews was I saw more issues with things like jamming and ink issues with the HP and Epson printers that were in my final round of choices. I found less of these reports amongst consumers for the 922 and its predecessor. Let's get the what's not so great issues out of the way first. I don't need a nightlight. Can anyone make an electronic device with a blue LED light that doesn't light up a whole room at night? It seems to be the nature of things these days with all sorts of consumer electronics. Second, the software installation could have been better. While I like the idea of installing the latest software right up front (the included CD directs your computer to the Canon website and doesn't install software directly from the CD, which may then need to be updated) the installation process was a bit slow and less than enlightening. There were a number of separate applications which could be installed, but very little information provided about what they were, what they did and why I might need them installed. In the end I wound up searching the web for descriptions and taking a guess at whether or not I really wanted or needed the specific software. For me personally I only need the software/drivers that make the thing work.. I don't need picture software, etc. It would be nicer if they set-up the software installation into two groups: one that just makes the all-in-one work (print, scan, copy, fax, etc.) and another group containing 'extras'. Third in the not so great section is a WTF moment... at the end of the installation it asked if I wanted to be part of a plan that would send to Canon user information to better help them understand my usage of the all-in-one. I normally don't opt into these things anyway, but I'm not opposed to them on principal. But this time they wanted to collect information for something like 10-years. Absurd. A real turn off. If they really want to get my opinion and usage information why don't they e-mail me for it on a regular basis? They have my e-mail after I register the product and that would seem to be a less intrusive route. Lastly, the main paper tray seems flimsy to me. Like it should be treated carefully. And there isn't any real backplate to it so paper installed in the tray doesn't really sit squeezed into place. It may work just fine for all I know in the long-term, but it doesn't exude confidence. However, there is plenty I find to like about this all-in-one and thus far I'm very happy with my selection. It was well packaged: safe and secure. Set-up of the physical device was easy, straight-forward and the printed guide clear and concise. Everything went together smoothly. The software, once my choices were made, has worked as it should and I really appreciate the ability to initiate a scan from my computer (one of those features my previous printer couldn't do). Regarding the actual functions I have tried everything except the faxing part as I don't have a phone line for such. The copy, scan and print functions all work as they should. The document feeder works as advertised (both sides), but I haven't yet tried two-sided printing. A paper saver to be certain, but I think there is probably where folks run into the issue of jamming more than anywhere else. Originally printing on standard copier paper (like I use with my HP laser printer) I found the quality of the text and graphics to be such as they usually are on standard copier paper: ok at best. I did run out and purchase a higher quality (HP brand - go figure) inkket-oriented paper, which I have used in the past to much better results; especially with text. This different paper helps keep the ink from bleeding into the little valleys that exist on paper. It helps keep the text more crisp looking and a 500-page ream for $8 is quite reasonable and I highly recommend purchasing such. While I have a dedicated picture printer I will make use of this 922 as well for quick prints. My text prints show generally good quality, but I find the colors (especially red) a bit muted. However, there are plenty of possible adjustments which can be made via the software to help get prints to be where you want them. This was not possible on my previous HP printer and I very much welcome this addition. With some adjustments and fiddling I have every confidence I will be able to get the prints to match my expectations. Lastly, time-to-print... via wi-fi (I have not made use of any other connectivity option at this time) the printer wakes up and receives the data quickly. However, the printer goes through all sorts of machinations before it actually prints the document. I know this is common with inkjet printers, but this 922 feels even slower than my much older HP. But after the first page is printed and the printer remains awake the time to print any subsequent pages is much, much quicker. Clearly quicker than was my older HP. The printer gods giveth and the printer gods taketh away....

      A full-featured multi-function printer/scanner

      The Canon PIXMA MX922 was a good replacement for separate printer, scanner, FAX machines. I also have an MX870, to compare the MX922 to, and the MX922 seems to have a slightly larger footprint, but is just as well-made. Setting up for a Mac running OS X 10.6.9 (Snow Leopard) was a little tedious. The installer CD's software went out to the Internet to pull down a 450MB file which then error'ed-out several times, with exceedingly cryptic messages. Had to hunt and peck on Canon's site for the right drivers, and discern which were the proper ones. Ultimately, the software from the web site was successful, and installed fine, and was easy-enough to understand, after a little poking around. The good thing about Canon printers is the separate ink tanks; if one color runs out, you just need to replace that cartridge, not throw out remainder unused ink. The borderless photo printing is a very nice touch, works well with their supplied Photo Glossy paper. The other nice thing about Canon is that they give full-sized ink cartridges, not smaller "starter cartridges" like some other manufacturers. The ink is probably middle-of-the-road in terms of cost, and is a commonly-found size. The MX870 seems to be in the middle in terms of ink-usage with maybe average printing (roughly a couple pages a day…), but wish it'd last longer, even in Fast-Draft/Low-Ink modes. But, that's the game. A quirk about the MX922 are the two stacked paper feed trays. The top tray is intended for photo and specialty paper, the bottom is meant for plain paper. Buuuut, the printer doesn't look to the upper tray first, to see if there's something in there—such as small paper or envelopes—it'll always default to the lower tray. To print on smaller sized paper, you have to essentially tell the printer that through the software's Printer Setup driver from whichever application you're printing from. The upper tray only gets pulled from if the Print Setup software settings indicate either small size (4x5 or 5x7, etc.) or Photo-grade paper intent. Basically, any software settings that'd be for photo, not typical document paper sizes. Which, can be fine, you just have to understand how the MX922 thinks. This is in contrast to the MX870 with a rear paper feed tray which you can quickly slip and envelope in, and the printer will check there first and print a one-off thing quickly. You'll need two or three feet clearance in front of the MX922 to handle the paper trays. So, putting it on a desk with things in front of it would be a problematic arrangement. The other thing about the paper trays is their flimsiness and fussiness. You usually have to pull the upper or lower tray out untruly to load specialty papers, but getting them in their rails can be hit-or-miss. For young folks, maybe not an issue, but for older folks this can be tedious. The multi-document feed is a nice feature, as is the two-sided printing/scanning ability. The context-senistive keypad is a nice feature; it obscures to unnecessary choices from view, and the user is just shown only the buttons available depending which mode they're in, and not be overwhelmed by too many choices. The ability to print from iOS devices is handy. And the ability for the printer to connect over WiFi is nice, though I just use hard-wired USB 2.0 for simplicity-sake. The MX922 was a good buy, and seems to be a fairly good unit, hope it'll last many, many years. It just took a few hours to set-up the hardware/software, and familiarize with the software utility's features. But, using it once set-up is simple.

      I already have a scanner so did not think I wanted an all-in-one, but the price was right on this one so I bought it. Now I am glad that I did since it is SO MUCH more handy to pop in whatever I need to email someone - even multiple sheets - and I don't have to go over to where I keep my regular scanner and change out pages as it scans. The print quality so far has been good, but I have not done any photos yet. The reviews that mention the long warm-up are pretty much on track, but unlike what I thought at first, it is not doing a long cleaning each time - - at least not according to what I read online. I delayed the wireless setup and then had a little trouble getting my wireless set up until I read I would have to put the disc back in to do it. Now my biggest problem with wireless are the apps on my phone. I can't get the print option to come up on pdf or doc files, but that has to do with the apps I use. Photos and emails print just fine from my phone using the wireless option. Also nice when someone emails info that I need to print right away and am not on the computer that has my personal email. Since I do a lot of "test" or draft printing on scratch paper in gray-scale, fast, I really do miss the option on my ip4000 to have two different letter size paper sources, since for me it means frequent opening the bottom tray and putting the paper I want to use before I print. Also since a #10 evenlope will not fit theupper tray, printing an envelope means taking the paper out of the bottom try, putting in the envelope, printing then putting your paper back in if you wish to print a letter for that envelope. Now if you do a lot of smaller items and photos, you might not mind the restrictions on the upper tray, but that is the reason it gets a 4 not a 5. I don't have a land line, so can't comment on the fax. I've also not used the disc print, but with European drivers and a homemade carrier was able to get that on my old printer, so I expect this to do as well - but will seldom use it. In general, I think I am going to like the printer, but will I get 13 years out it like my old iP4000? Let's say I hope the Canon reputation holds.

      Great so far

      While I can say that I only just got this printer today, I am very happy with it so far. Of course I cannot speak to anything long-term yet like it's ink consumption I can tell that, initially, the printer seems great. I read some of the reviews about ink consumption and, knowing other Canon printers as I do, I wouldn't be surprised if this is a 'thirsty' machine but I cannot say anything about that yet. I recall reading in a number of reviews about only so-so text print quality. What little I've printed seems to be of excellent quality although I just let it print so it may have been printing all the way on highest quality. A photo I printed also turned out great and, being a photographer, I wanted quality photo printing. I don't print a lot overall but, I want to be able to print decently when I do and this printer certainly did. I read reviews about the printer being slow but I can't say the same thing in my limited experience with this printer, it was actually quick (not super-quick but quick). I also read about having to have a cable to scan and send to a computer; this is not the case. I DID have to have the CD installed before my computer was on the list of where the scan could be sent but it worked just fine and over wireless connection. Again, we'll see how this is on ink. Fortunately I don't print THAT much so at least that's not a HUGE concern of mine. The ink tanks are quite a bit smaller than on the previous model printer I had so I can see that they could run out quickly but, again, we'll see. A final feature I really like is the automatic document feeder - yes, you can scan multiple sheets without having to put them individually on the glass. One think I really like it the light-up buttons. There are 16 buttons on the front which I at first thought were not labeled. In fact, they light up with whatever options are available to you when you're going through menus (like O K to choose something or a back arrow when you can go back). I do also like that you don't lift the whole glass portion up to get at the printhead to put ink in. it's just a small door although that does mean that it's a bit of a tighter squeeze - could be a bit tricky for someone with large hands or who has poor manual dexterity. The only issue I've noticed is that the the paper support on the output tray it a little flimsy. There is a part that extends on its own in a 'swing-out' motion, seemingly spring-loaded as the tray opens. I have found that this occasionally does not retract properly and would block closing the tray but this usually seems to be easily corrected by extending that piece all the way back and then gently back toward the position it would be in when closed (just until it seems to bump up against the spring again). If that's the only complaint I have about this printer, I really have no complaint.

      First time buyer of a Canon product

      I have about 13 plus years experience with home computers and in that time frame my family would only purchase Hewlett Packard products i.e PC , scanner ,printer etc. We have never actually thought about any other brand until this point, because we had issues with two HP printers back to back. So of course we thought to look at other options in regards to printer products. When we were looking online we really didn't have any clue on what brand to choose. First we were just solely looking at price range, but to the help of the reviews by other Best Buy customers it really helped choose a brand and model. That is the reason for the purchase of the Canon Pixma. When it first arrived and was taken out of the box, I was shocked to see how bulky the printer was, but as soon as I finished reading the instruction manual the shock was soon over and I enjoyed the overall dimensions of this Canon Pixma printer. Installation was overall an easy set up as long as you keep to the steps written in the setup guide . I honestly wanted to just jump in and "plug and play" as they say , but I am glad I didn't because the setup really needs to be followed accordingly. Once we finished with the setup and printed our first "practice" sheet, it was amazing how professional it felt compared to the Hewlett Packard printers we have purchased in the past. That is the reason for the excellent rating overall, because due to my experience with probably 5 Hewlett Packard printers I would say this Canon Pixma has been the best experience to date. Thank you for taking a moment and reading this review, really hope it helps you choose which printer to purchase. Just like the reviews helped us :)

      Excellent printer for home or small office

      I have been using Canon printers for at least several years. Canon printers are excellent quality printers, reliable and easy to set up and use. This Pixma MX922 all-in-one is no exception!! The Pixma MX922 has been on the market for at least several years now. The user screen is easy to use and is operated by small push buttons, so the screen is not a touch screen like some of the newer Canon printers. Nonetheless, the display screen is very simple to use I think. It can be set in the menu options for silent operation, but it is quiet enough by default. The supplied ink cartridges are full cartridges, not samples. At times, printing can take a minute or two while the printer head aligns, cleans. initializes, etc. Print quality is outstanding and the separate ink cartridges are easy to replace and economical to replace as needed. The scan quality by default at 300dpi is outstanding and easy to use as well. I have not set up the FAX functions yet, but I am sure that will be a snap when I do, if ever. The upper paper tray holds a generous paper supply of 250 sheets and the paper holder platform pops out automatically to hold prints! Nice feature! There is also a top paper tray for custom photo paper sizes too! I love the wireless wi-fi connectivity, so it can be placed anywhere within the wi-fi area without a cable! Also, Best Buy had this in stock when I couldn't find it any where else! I have two of these and very glad I purchased these. Canon is great quality and reliability when I need it. The replacement ink cartridges are easily found almost anywhere. This printer also accepts quality generic compatible ink replacement cartridges which are a bit cheaper. Overall, I am very pleased with my Canon Pixma MX922! I have recommended this printer to friends too. They love it!

      Perfect Printer

      Posted
      BArcher

      I have read many negative reviews on this printer. Mainly of the construction, the speed and setting it up wirelessly. All I can say is, I have not had a problem with any of these issues. I am a website and graphic designer and I need a good printer. No, I need an exceptional printer. I was wary of buying this one based on some of the reviews, but I went with my gut feeling. So far, I am not disappointed. It connected to our wireless connection in under 20 seconds. It prints out our documents in literally 3 seconds and the construction seems fine to me. There might be potential for the paper tray to fall off or get caught, since it opens up on its own when the printer turns on. I have not printed any photos with it yet. I had a Canon printer prior to this one. The DPI is the same, so I already know the result will be amazing. Canon printers always produce the best photo quality. If you have had Canon photo printers before, then you already know ink can be expensive... so no surprise there. If you are switching from HP, then you definitely should know this. I'm personally used to the price, as I've used Canon for years. I print A LOT and the ink consumption is great for what I need. My old printer was the same. I'm beginning to wonder why people are having trouble setting this up wirelessly. We hooked our printer up first, then we installed the software CD. It immediately found our network and asked to connect to it. I think that's the trick. Maybe some people are installing the software first and are having problems? Or maybe they have a bad/slow internet connection? That could also be why some people say it prints slow. If it's connected to WiFi and it is slow printing, that is not the printer's fault - that is your internet. Either way, this printer is wonderful. The quality and speed are like a dream and it is very easy to use. I would not know about the faxing capabilities, as we do not have a phone line. Nor would I know about the scanner because I have not used that yet either. I will warn all about the size though. It's massive! It takes up most of our desk and doesn't leave us much more room for anything else. That aside, I would highly recommend this printer to all designers and freelancers!

      This is a nice printer, IF you get it on sale. I bought this printer to upgrade from my Epson 600 workforce. I figured newer model might have new features and possibly use less ink. I have other canon products, Trust name ext, ext, ext...... Cons First off WIFI setup was a PITA ( Compared to my Epson). Seems to use more ink Then the Epson ( Not by much) Ink Cartridges cost more then the epsons ( not by much) Not a big fan of the tray that holds the printed documents. Papers easily fall off Instructions are average at best Pros Looks nicer then the Epson lol Printing speeds are just a tad slower the then Epson WIFI works great (Once you get it to work) Has a paper cartridge holder at the bottom. Has a few more features ( Software) This a decent printer, but not for 199.99 . I prefer my old Epson to this printer. I guess I could have taken this back to try the newer epsons, but this still works ok and still meets my needs. In the software this has a few more cleaning programs that are really nice. Don't get me wrong this this is a nice printer, but folks if your heart is set on getting this ONLY BUY IT, IF IT IS ON SALE. I have seen BB list this on sale for as low as 99.99. WIFI setup- spent a hour trying to get this printer to connect to my computer. Followed the instructions over and over and over again. I was about to package it up and take it back, then I tried it one more time and it connected. I didn't do any thing different........ I recommend before you hook this printer up , let it sit on your lap, pet it, talk really nice to it, again BEFORE you connect it ;-)
