Customer Reviews of Canon MP160 Multi-Function Photo Printer
Best buy for the money6/13/2007
The printer is extremely easy to use, & the print is very good. I have not yet used it to print photos. My only complaint is that when scanning to send an email it cannot send directly from my Earthlink Total Access email program. It does, however, send directly from an Outlook Express email program. This only makes the process of scanning to email a bit more difficult.
I had an MP150 for a couple of years and it jammed on me recently, so I purchased the MP160 and it works great. I just use it for everyday printing and scanning to do business from home and keep up with family; it works just fine.
Canon PIXMA MP160 Multifunction Printer - Color In5/16/2007
It works ok, it is slow at the begining when it starts printing, but it prints.
A clean and capable value printer !4/4/2007
A basic but very good printer. Per page cost thanks to low (aftermarket) ink cost make it great for printing extra pics.
Prints fast. Quiet and efficient.
Can't beat the performane for the price3/20/2007
I've only had this for four days, but I'm amazed with the borderless printing. It still leaves the tiniest line of white on two sides of the page, but being able to do a full bleed on my design proofs is so nice. The photos look excellent. It's a little bigger than I expected, and the scanner is not as high quality as the flatbed I already own, but other that that I'm quite happy. Also, I chose budget shipping, but it still showed up on my doorstep in two days!
Anything from Canon is good.3/15/2007
This is my third excellent printer from Canon. It does everything that it is expected to do well. Will not be using it for my photographs, but I did not intend to, I have another Canon for that. The wonderful thing about Canon is their customer service. Call them, get an immediate answer, talk to someone in english and get your problem taken care of immediately. I had a problem getting the software to install, one phone call, problem solved. Great printer, great company.
Review of Buy.com3/15/2007
Although many reviewers are rating the products received from Buy.com, I think it's important to concentrate on the distributor of the product. In this case, Buy.com. After all, Buy.com did not manufacture the product, but is merely a facilitor, i.e., the distributor. Therefore, in my case, I purchased the Canon MP160 all-in-one inkjet printer from Buy.com. And if I have a complaint about or praise for the product, I should address it to Canon, not Buy.com. Having said that, I give Buy.com five stars for their customer service. They kept me informed every step of the way via e-mail about the status of my order and the product arrived when they said it would. Their pricing/shipping is hard to beat and their supply of electronics is vast. I would not hesitate to purchase from Buy.com in the future (I've bookmarked the web site for future purchases). By the way, I haven't, as yet, used the printer.
We bought this printer because it is highly recommended by Consumer Reports. The set up has been simple and clear. There are some simple features we have not figured out yet, like enlarging and reducing copies. Much has to be done from the computer instead of the printer keys, since there is no screen. The copies are very clear and it prints quickly enough for our home use.
OK Product/Good Value2/14/2007
Good basic all-in-one color printer. Easy to install and setup. Bulky and noisy - fair printer - text is too light on standard setting. Wastes ink by cleaning heads too often.
This had a low cost. Cheap ink compared to HP. Scans are very good. Photos on regular paper look pretty darn good too. Very fast text prints. Buy it if you need an all in one for cheap.
