Fair valued printer with minimal faults and cons
Reviewed in Canada on April 22, 2021
Pleased with this purchase. Conveniently sized, as it's not too large, and it's small enough to stash away in the closet or in a cupboard if necessary for space. It's a bit louder than I expected but the decibel level wouldn't/shouldn't present anyone with any issues, unless you need to print things in the middle of the night and someone is sleeping in your office.
It DOES come with ink, two carts: PG-243 Black Fine and CL-244 Colour Fine, so don't do what I did and order extra needlessly. Also, don't believe other reviews re: ink compatibility, as per the Canon website you may outfit this printer with the following cartridges:
PG-245 / PG-243 Pigment Black Inks
CL-246 / CL-244 Dye Based Inks
It was a pain in the ass to set up the wireless. It just fought me every step of the way with every single stupid step. I literally almost fell asleep while trying to figure it out over the app you need to install in order to set up wireless for initial smartphone printing. I should have just bit the bullet and moved it to the wifi modem and connected it directly, but rehab is the only place for quitters.
The print quality is splendid. It's nothing fancy, but the colours are punchy and the print lines were clean and crisp. I printed a picture of my cat, and then the return label for the extra ink I mistakenly ordered.
I'm happy at the end of the day, it's a good printer and it does the job. You can probably find it cheaper, or comparable cheaper printers elsewhere, but if you just need something and can afford the price, then it's reasonable and at least worth the investment.
