Ease of Use

I had a Cannon MP780 and really loved the printer and the software. I bought two MX 870 and they were great until I started getting messages..Cannot recognize ink cartridge and other similiar junk. I have talked to customer service and the problem is not resolved. The problem centers on the chip in the ink cartridge. I now just use the machine for scanning and print on another machine. Now worthless as a fax printer.

All in all though it is a great printer, copier and scanner (i do not use the fax feature). Fast shipping and great service from

Good Printer

by A customer on 12/25/2010

This is my first Canon printer and I am very pleased with it. I use it occasionally at home so it does not receive constant use. I am anxious to see length of time before inks have to be replaced.
