    Need a top quality paper or it jams. Connectively is very problematic. Have to reinstall WIfi and the computer devices. The display is not lit so hard to read. And even if you could read it, the technical lingo has you scratching your head. What more can I say for a budget printer, you git what you pay for.

  • piece of shit

    from red deer alberia on April 16, 2019

    this tting is an absolute waste of money piece of garbage. I have had this thing for about 6 months and it has been nothing but a headache and a fight to use print quality looks like a five year drew it freehand, maybe worse. trying to get this to scan is an exercise in frustration usually takes 30-60 mins to scan one document. I will never buy another cannon product ever. this has been the least user friendly piece of hardware I have ever encountered.

  • Terrible choice in printer

    from Calgary, AB on September 17, 2018

    Cant say a whole lot of good about this printer. If its not connection issues every time you go to use its any other number of errors like jamming brand new paper and saying load paper while there is paper in with the casette closed and engaged as it should be or any other thing that could go wrong. If youre thinking about buying this i would keep looking. i cant recall a time ive used this thing in the last year since buying that it hasnt taken atleast 30 minutes of F'ing around with it for a simple print. Garbage just an awful product.
