Prone to breaking down
This printer doesn't work. It took me about 2 weeks before giving up on the wireless function and I'm now forced to send documents to my phone to print. Now, after just replacing the ink it refuses to even print a document. Absolute waste of money, do not buy this printer.
Printer is unreliable, may work for a short amount of time before ceasing to function any further. Powering off completely and turning back on does nothing, the printer will work when it feels like it can, will it be same day, tomorrow, next week? who knows. worst purchase. The setup what a nightmare for wireless. ended up giving up and buying a printer cable to connect directly. I thought I was buying a basic printer to do basic printing, but that's not what i ended up with. Disappointing
Good- paper jamming frustrating
Purchased this printer just wanting something to print easy enough, have wifi to connect to phone laptop and also scan. Setting up laptop it didn’t want to pick up wireless.. eventually it did. But the most basic thing of all - feeding the paper. How hard it is for a printer to feed the paper ! It has trouble collecting paper and always says “load paper tray” when there is paper ... then it might pull it through. Already had a paper jam within first 15 mins. Hopefully it feeds paper easily enough from now on with out any dramas. Who would have guessed something as simple as pulling paper through to print would be it’s biggest down fall. Since reading other reviews, I don’t think I’ll have much luck.
Don’t waste your money.
The printer is cheap to buy yes, but buying the ink after it runs out, is most definitely not cheap. The ink being more expensive than the printer itself, is pretty ridiculous considering it runs out very quickly. So in my experience, it was just a big waste of money.
Spent hours and the thing wont connect.
Absolutely terrible. Spent hours. I've tried my PC and now even resorting to sending doc.s to my phone to use the canon app to print, but I cant even get that to connect either. Worst product ever. Wasted so much time I wont get back. Stay away from this printer.
Best All-In-One Printer for Home Use
We just recently bought Canon MG3660 All in one printer and it is serving its purpose. :) The price of the printer is very affordable and it is both printer and scanner. In addition to that, it is also wifi enabled which makes everything organized. No more cables! Over all, I’m very satisfied in purchasing it.
Great printer for the money
Had to quickly purchase a printer for our home office when our Epson printer died all of a sudden. Raced into the local post office and walked out with this printer. Wasn't sure what to expect as the price was so reasonable compared to the Epson that had just stopped working and also after reading some of the other less that glowing reviews by other users. Have to say, so far so good. Easy to set up and install the software. Did take a bit of time but that not unusual considering our crappy internet speeds here. The app that you can down...load to print from a phone or tablet is simple and straightforward to follow. The print outs are good for what I need and the best part. The replacement cartridges are half the price of what I was used to. A BIG bonus. My only negative would be that the quality of the photo printing isn't as good as I was used to but I can live with that. All in all very happy with this unit so far.
Easy Set Up Easy to use
The print quality of, this printer is very good. I use the duplex or double-sided printing for printing meeting minutes, which saves paper. I have printed photo quality photo, which was exceptional.
The printer at the time of purchase was cheaper than purchasing ink of a previous canon printer that I had owned. the ink is of reasonable price.
I haven't had many paper jams. but I found it depends on the quality and brand of paper that is used at time of printing the required documents.
Useless! Will never buy anything canon again!
Absolutely useless printer right from new. Purchased brand new and right from the first print, constant paper jams, even from 1 piece of paper at a time, errors connecting to computer, even when hooked up with the cable which has to be bought separately. Anything that did print had to be manually removed from the printer to prevent it be destroyed by this cheap useless crap. Would give no stars if I could and will never buy anything Canon again.

The price is right and you get what you pay for
Just a basic printer and Scanner , cartridges a bit on the dear side, but the printer was just over $50, so you dont expect the cartridges to be as cheap as printer, it does print and scan alright, had no troubles with it, Connected to WIFI straight away didn't need a cord.
created and supplied by the most incompetent monkeys on the planet.
The installation requires a printer cable, which they do not supply. therefore making it impossible to use without a third party purchase. even when you finally manage to get the thing installed, it finds any and every opportunity to stop working and give you every single error message coded into it. Canon needs to quit making printers and start selling bananas to its employees because they could at least sell something of decent quality then.
in short, save your money and buy anything but a canon.

is there any half star option ?
THE second day of my purchase i was mad ..lot of functions but non works .Not user friendly please don't buy it. always shows printer not responding if you try by lap or app. please provide a product which worth of its value.they are in third position in cameras so please avoid every canon products..
do not purchase this printer
I wish i had read the below reviews before i purchased this printer. Not only are the cartridges really expensive, the black and white function uses the coloured ink also. so it is incorrect in guaranteeing 500 pages per cartridge, its more like 500 for a pair or cartridges which is more than $100 per top up (almost as much as the printer itself). Furthermore, there is always connectivity problems, tells me there is no paper when there is always paper. Exam week and printer problems, great. i am so unbelievably disappointed with this product and also the customer service. Stick to cameras cannon, this printer is just awful.
Will Not Print - A Desirable Function In A Printer
Bought this printer from the Coogee post office. For 2 days now I was unable to make it print. Rubbish.
Screw you canon it makes the right noises then will not take in paper. Why do outlets sell rubbish like this. I bought it because my other printer(hp) will no longer scan.
Aaaarrrrrgggghhhh I have not got the time to work out what is wrong.
Never prints when you need it to!
I bought this printer to replace a Canon printer I had for 10 years. I was drawn by its promise of wireless printing. Well sadly it is a piece of crap and it doesn't ever print when I need it too. After I push print, it will make the noise it does to signal it is going to start printing but then nothing....no printing. Sometimes it can take up to 1-2 days until it will finally randomly print something out. Its not our WiFi as we have no other issues with WiFi and the box for the WiFi is a metre away from the printer. I have contacted Canon numerous times and they keep telling me to reinstall the driver. I even asked for a refund and they ignored me. Terrible customer service and a terrible printer. DO NOT BUY!!!!
Disgusting piece of rubbish! Do not purchase!
Biggest load of rubbish!!! Cannot set up impossible! Actually threw it in the bin!!! Disgusting piece of crap.
I am so disappointed always trusted Canon products but no more...will never purchase another.
Bought this in Big W as I need print many homework for family. Now I just wanna tell Canon that don't sell this rubbish and don't say this is high tech coz the wireless and printer never work well ! Tried to download and set up driver many times. Tried many different wifi and I am sure the wifi and NB all work well. But the printer always running noise after I press "print" sounds like receive my printing direction. Few seconds later the printer fall sleep... like nothing happen! Where is my printing? non. Sometimes it show me that run out the ...ink so I bought a brand new ink in office work. But still same! The rubbish printer always has 2 response: one is running some noise then nothing happen, another is tell you that you run out the ink even it's new one inside!! Totally waste my money and time ! What a rubbish that made by Canon ! Every one all welcome to buy this one if you think you have too much money to throw . Also if you have very good mind that wanna change your mind to angry also think about use it~
Wireless - NOT
Bought this printer as I needed to do some printing and scanning. Purchased at Big W and the price was reasonable. All sorts of problems setting it up wirelessly and the instructions are inadequate. Did manage to get it to print intermittently but would not scan at all. Tried multiple times with the same result. Note, that it does have the option to set up with a USB cable but that cable is not supplied. Hunted around my house and I happened to find a USB cable to fit and now it is finally working.
This printer is a decent purchase if you can get in on sale and don't need to do a huge amount of printing quickly. It prints at a relatively slow speed but the quality is overall pretty good. Connecting it to wifi is easy and the scanner mobile app works well making it easy to digitise documents (one page at a time albeit). As with all printers, the ink is more expensive than buying the actual printer but if you need a decent wireless printer this is a good option for the price.
Bought this printer because I had lots of paperwork to print but had issues with it as soon as I set it up, wouldnt hook up to wifi and when it did it would only work "sometimes" paper would get jammed inside and the ink vanished quickly even though I hadn't been able to use it. I contacted the store where I purchased it from but no help and I contacted Canon many times who have completely ignored me. This model printer is faulty
