Crap connection during set up but all good afterwards
Bought it on sale after searching value for money. The initial installation was nuts and the mania is useless... just before i threw it into a bin, called 131383 for support. I was trying to connect a PC with the printer via wireless network. The network couldn’t pick up the printer. With the support call, had to use a smartphone to do initial connection. Took 20mins on the phone.
Works ok afterwords. Not planning to refill the ink as it only cost $19 for the machine but $ for the ink.
Would give this no stars if I could - absolutely damn terrible
Absolutely terrible, do not waste your money. It has taken me 4 days to set this up and 15 attempts to install the program because every time I go into the programs it apparently hasn't been installed completely. Still isn't registered either because there are no instructions on how to do this for this model. There are no photo editing programs aside from "easy Photo print" well I don't know who classes that as easy because it is impossible and I still have not been able to register for this because you need to know the printer registration id ...and there are no instructions on how to find this. Apparently it can be found online but it basically is a "Help" page that is a never ending loop, and once you click on the link to find the information you need- it actually requests you provide the information you need. Is crap at printing photos- they come out all streaky with lines across the entire page (Brand new printer which has brand new ink cartridges). They are dull, unfocused, too light and patchy when the images on my computer are professional photos. And you cannot alter the pictures because you cannot register for "Easy print" Easy print my butt. When using photo paper it bring up errors stating you don't have the set up correct or the model is not equipped to use that type of paper. I mean its photo paper- how difficult could it be. Honestly my 8yr old printer which has been in storage and has completely blocked ink heads works better than this brand new piece of crap. I wish I had never bought it. When trying to leave a review on the website there is a lovely section down the bottom which says "Be the first to leave a review" and you would be the first because every time you click on the link it takes you back to the top of that page.
Works as advertised..Not cheap to refill
The print quality from this unit is perfect for general use. Connecting the unit was simple and it's great to have a simply connected wifi printer available. The price of the refills is horrendous. I could purchase a new unit for the price of both of the refills and the larger refill units which reduced the print cost significantly seem to be no longer available.
Does the job slowly but gets it done.
My husband set this one up so I can't comment on that, but it works just fine from my iMac once I downloaded the correct driver and the print quality is great for everyday printing. It didn't cope as well with thick card and jammed a few times, and the ink took time to dry on the metallic card I used to make xmas cards and newsletters but I think that was me not knowing how to use the settings properly. I was impressed by how simple it was to remove paper jams.
It's pretty slow so I wouldn't get it if you have a high volume of printing to do but for regular home use it's a perfectly good printer.
This is pretty good printer.
This very good printer so far. We purchase it for our Daly printing and we used it for my daughter's birthday for shimmer and shine poster with photo cutter. It comes pretty well as we desired to be. Only thing is it's bit slow with color printing. Rather then that no worries at all.
Does what's required
I purchased this printer as a means to an end. I was doing some work from home and needed a simple easy printer. Works a treat but the printer alignment doesn't want to work properly so I work around it. Hasn't caused me any dramas. It's not a magical unicorn that printers picture perfect but definitely works for me

Broke on setup
Shocking product,broke on print head alignment procedure,did 2 pages of text ok and then refused to work-made the loudest bang noise on setup and did that for the two pages it printed then refused to work at all after that,replaced with another model printer by officeworks without a hassle.The price is a reflection of build quality-cheap.
Does not work with a mac computer - don't waste you time or money
Wasted so much time, trying to get this printer to work. Downloaded the software 4 times for a Mac. It does not work. I will not to buy a canon very again. They keep thinking that people only have windows. Then they change the printer and don't sell the ones I buy after one year.. Moving on... sad really, I've only ever used canon. Too bad!
Print from your mobile phone
I can download a pdf format file or a photo and print it staight from my smartphone. Just awesome. Download the canon print app and your ready to go. Cant believe how much stuff i can print from my phone. Wifi as well make this the best printer ive ever owned and the price is even better.
On off button kept flashing comp won't connect to printer rang Canon hotline they stinging me $179 for Windows tech to " clean up my comp" remotely. I've been watching what they are doing and it's the same as I did. They have had no success fixing and it's been one hour and counting. Sorry I got rid of my old MP 190
So cheap and very easy to use
Printer is so cheap and does exactly what it says, i.e prints and scans decent quality over wifi.
It doesn't come with a usb cable but you don't need it to set up, can be done over wifi. It's an advantage to have it though since I had wifi setup issues.
Within 1 hour I was printing from my mobile phone over wifi.
Considering the printer is cheaper than replacement cartridges (comes with full cartridges), it is a bargain.
Questions & Answers
I wanted to scan /print three sheets it printed one sheet and now wont print any thing else. Any ideas as to why?
