    So far so good (cord not included)

    Posted

    I bought this printer to print all the trees that grad school kills for my classes. It's been working like a champ. Granted, I haven't had it that long...but I just printed a hundred pages of something and it was able to handle it without a problem. It's a bit slower when you're trying to print pictures of things, but I don't need anything lightning fast. Also, a heads up for those who either can't install the CD because their laptop doesn't have a disc drive (me, a mac user), or if you just prefer hooking it up straight to the printer, but you might need/want a cord to hook up your laptop's USB port to the port on the back of the printer. I went to Best Buy and on my second trip there (the first cord an associate gave me was incorrect), a very nice employee pointed out the right cord. The one i got was Isignia's USB 2.0 A/B Cable. It would have come in handy to know that when I was making my purchase, so just a heads up for all the folks out there. Overall, satisfied with my purchase. :-)

    Printer/Copier/Scanner. NO FAX. Works flawlessly via USB. USB CABLE IS NOT INCLUDED which almost caused me to knock it down a star and not a very cool move by Canon since THIS IS A USB PRINTER and all. Fortunately, I had a USB A-B cable lying around which I haven't used for years but came with a Canon scanner I purchased in 1998. Scanner is long gone, but the cable lives on! Included Ink will get you through several copies. Only worth it if you already have the USB A-B cable in my opinion. If you don't have one get the wireless version of this ($14 more). The difference in price is what it would cost for you to get a USB A-B cable anyway. Lol. Oh Canon...

    5 out of 5 stars. I love this printer. I use it to print simple things. Mostly things I type up. Recipes, calanders, to-do lists, etc. Everything always comes out great. I have printed a few pictures with it and they’re nice! I’m sure a printer specializing in printing pictures would print much better looking photos, but I really cannot complain on how this printer printed them. Not bad at all. Really nice printer if you’re printing out simple stuff! You really can’t beat it for the price. I also like how the ink for this printer is really really cheap. So when I do need to get more I’m not spending an arm and a leg. Extremely happy with my purchase!

    I needed an all in one printer that could be easily carried from room to room. Wi-Fi was not an issue so I decided to give it a try. I was surprised and pleased to find it also came with the cord that was needed (the cord isn't very long so keep that in mind). The software for the printer was easy enough to install however I did have issues with one of the extra software that came with it (could have just been my pc) Prints great, scans well and best of all it isn't loud. I can use it late nights with no worries of waking the family. Ink is no higher for this printer than it is for any of the others. Best purchase I have made from Best Buy in 5yrs. Fast shipping had it in 3 days

    Good printer/scanner/copier for its price

    It's a good all-in-one device to print your documents and photos (B&W and colored), scan the documents and copy without having connected it to a computer. Pros: very low price, easy installation, convenient software, easy refilling. Cons: It does not support border-less photo printing, so you will always have a border on your 4x6" photos, the image is scaled there, and the border is not even - some sides may have larger borders. Summary: If it's considered the main device for printing photos, better look for something more expensive, otherwise it's a nice and cheap device to have for occasional printing or scanning.

    I haven't had a printer since college. They are like a check book in my mind, just not necessary anymore. With my son now in middle school, homework is digitally sent to kids/parents and needs to be printed from time to time. Knowing I would not need to print often, I went for the cheapest I could find. I am pleasantly surprised by this printer. Clear quick prints. Great quality scans. Even printed well on cardstock paper. Would totally recommend for someone who just "needs a printer". You will get well more than what you should for so cheap.

    Worthless for printing photos

    Posted
    FrankL

    They don't say this in the description, but if you print any photos, no matter what the size, there will be a .67 inch margin at the bottom. This will be there no matter what you print and you can't get rid of it. It seems to be a problem on cheap printers. If you think you will never print a photo then go for it, but if you do print photos then spend the extra twenty or so dollars and and get a better printer. I'm sending mine back.

    I was nervous about ordering this printer because it was so cheap but wow! It includes ink both b&w and color, I already had printer paper at home. Only think was that I needed to buy the USB cable which I ordered immediately on eBay for $2.99 after reading it on another reviewer, bc I have a Macbook air and no CD drive. Great printing quality, exactly what I needed.

    The Ink costs more than the printer itself.

    If you buy ink for this printer..please note that color and black and white together cost $40. So here is what I suggest you do, every time you need ink just buy this printer again and throw out the old one. That’s what I do! I’ve purchased about 6 of these printer in the past couple years and I’m saving money in the process!

    To the reviewer who said this printer doesn't work with Windows 10, I beg to differ. I had it up and running in a few short minutes with no problem on my Dell laptop running Windows 10. I haven't tried to print any photographs, but the basic printing features work the same as our much more expensive Canon printer what was not compatible with the new laptop running Windows 10.

    I needed a simple printer which would print, copy and scan. I've had trouble hooking up wireless printers. This one was easy! You do connect it to the computer and that's what I wanted. Printer comes with cable for hookup. Very easy set up and printer has performed great! I have printed, copied and scanned with no problems! Love the printer.

    This is a perfect printer copier and scanner for someone who doesn't need Wireless. Everything works so seamlessly it was so easy to hook up definitely a great find we're very pleased with how it performs and with how simple the interface is between the printer and The copier you also don't need to have your computer on to make a copy which is great

    Inexpensive printer

    I purchased the printer because the one I had broke and I needed one quickly. This one was inexpensive with no shipping charges. The printer was advertised as an "All in One" however it does not have a scanner which I had in the HP "All in One" which broke after five years of use. Also, it is not easy to remove the paper if it gets stuck in the printer. But the price was inexpensive and you get what you pay for.

    Hey, there! The Canon - PIXMA MG2522, cables included, is an easy install (i found iMac drivers online). It'll scan, copy those or other scans, & print. i use it for 8.5" x 11" docs: sign 'em, scan 'em, send 'em, & print a copy for records (Music biz). Lucky to get it from BestBuy.com, for $16 delivered! Had it since May, 2018, about three months. i run it once a week - works great!

    The fact that it is way more affordable to buy a whole brand new printer than to get ink, is amazing. I already owned this exact printer and when I ran out of ink, i saw this one was on sale and it was cheaper than buying ink so that is what i did. When it arrived i just simply took the ink and put it in my older one (same printer btw) and i didnt even need to re install anything. GENIUS!

    Looked like a great deal until I priced the ink cartridges out. It's cheaper to buy a new new printer when the original ink runs out. You can buy 3 printers for the price of one extended use set of ink cartridges. Maybe this isn't such a bad deal after all. Lol!

    I have had nothing but issues with this printer! It doesn’t printer, scan, or copy without a load of “error” codes popping up and no way to fix it. I’ve owned this printer for a month (almost 2) and haven’t actually been able to use it and they will not allow me to return it! Very unsatisfied customer!

    Does a great job like other Canon printers I've had. I need a printer on a limited basis and this all in one is good for the counter space it takes. Copying function is one at a time but fast. Good machine for the price. Keep in mind though at this price point that an ink cartridge will cost almost as much as the printer. This is not a wireless printer.

    Easy to put together. It prints from my laptop just fine because it has a CD drawer for the software. My Chrome Book is not so easy. I have no CD drawer and can't get it to work manually. My grandson probably can. I print very little, so I just use the laptop for that task or put what I want to print on a thumb drive and then use the laptop.
