Poor menu layout & poor installation walk thru...

Awkward setup, slow, with little information as to what is happening. changed from a Kodak 2550 printer(finally failed), sooo easy. not so with the Cannon.

  • from Burnaby, BC

Lacks Scanning Software

Works well for basic print jobs. Canon is missing scanning software and so even if it does copy, it won't scan anything into your computer. Copy function is fine. Printing is fine. Good value.

All in one printers are garbage

I bought the Pixma 722 from BestBuy. The ink dries up if you don't use it a lot and it won't print or fax if any one of the five ink cartridges is empty. I bought a new cartridge of black ink but before I could use it the magenta (which I never use) dried up. Before I wasted even more money, I bought a Samsung printer that used black toner instead of colour cartridges. I thought I would still be able to use the Canon as a fax and copy machine but learned that it won't do anything when even one ink cartridge is empty.

Very good printer , just one problem it is not double sided.

  • from Mont-saint-hilaire, QC


Great printer which more than met my expectations. Great price as well. Refill ink cartrridges are also reasonable when compared to other ink-jet printers in this category

  • from Kamloops, BC


The printer is definitely not the the fastest but its doing the work which is good enough for me at that price.

  • from Kitimat, BC


consumer reports says that it is the most economical printer on ink and I got it at half price, so I am happy already

  • from Toronto, ON

  • from Peterborough, ON

perfect printer for my needs

I wanted a printer/scanner that was wireless for my home use. I am very pleased with the results from this printer and the price was amazing! It is perfect for my home use. I did have a Canon prior to this one that was about 4 years old but unfortunately it got dropped during a move. I am very pleased with the new one

Canon MX492 5 Star printer.

This printer connected right away to my interenet was easy to set up and I am pleased with the printer quality I recommend this printer to anyone looking for a inkjet printer.

Canon mx492

Excellent Quality Printer for the money does everything you need and for the price there isn't a better printer on the market.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Worst buy ever

don't do it. It is a terrible printer. I had to connect to my network every time I need to print (meaning I had to type in the password of my network every single time). How a company named best buy can carry this junk baffles me. Worst buy ever (I am returning it and I had only had it for less than 24 hours)

Does not work consistently

I have had many Canon printers and always taken care of it but they all seem to give you random errors every once in a while. I am having major problems with this one! It is constantly telling me that the printer is already in use by someone (only ever hooked up to 1 laptop) or when I turn it on, I will get this message on the screen of the printer : "Please wait a while". It is a constant struggle to find helpful solutions on the internet and their (Canon's) customer support is not good! Don't waste your money.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great Inexpensive Inkjet

Got it at a decent sale price and love it. My only complaints are: like all inkjets, the ink is ridiculously expensive and levels drop far too quickly and the inability to adjust print quality. Other than that, both scanners function well, the wireless works great, and print quality is better than acceptable.
