Prone to breaking down
I'm on my third canon mg3660, each time I've had to buy a new printer because I couldn't get rid of the error 5B02, I had cleaned the absorption pads but could not reset the ink counter, I tried all the hints online but to no avail, and I had to buy another printer the same as I had just purchased new ink cartridges which were dearer than the printer. Now having said that I've been very happy with the setting up and operations of the printer, in particular two sided printing.

Good printer though a little slow
Setup took a while though I'm a techie. So, kinda messy to follow the guide here and there. Wireless configuration takes a little time but no errors. Connects and prints from smartphone and laptop. Color print quality is satisfactory. I don't know if other people had a faulty piece or something but mine works at the top.
Purchased in May 2020 at Kmart for $60.00.
So easy to set up on my phone
Only just bought it but it’s the easiest printer to set up that I’ve ever had to do. All good to go in like 5 mins and all done on my phone so I was relieved I didn’t need a cable and set up on my laptop first. Instructions were easy and it printed the text great. I only printed text so I can’t comment on picture quality but for the low price, it just want I need it to do.

This is the easiest printer I have ever had to set up to connect to 3 computers all WIFI
I have had this Cannon MG3660 colour inkjet printer/scanner for about 6 months. I am 70 years old and many printers and other computer related items can be very difficult for Me, but I have found this Canon Printer which is coloured a beautiful RED colour works just fine and prints what ever I want to print. It wasn't expensive either, and was on special at BIG W .. It prints excellent in black or in colours... I also have a colour Laser printer but I have found I am preferring using the Canon MG3660 for single sheets of accounts and bills et...c. Printed in colour.. I have never had a paper jam or any other printer problem... My first Canon inkjet printer and I love it.... it prints what I tell it every time.... very clear in colour or just black printing.... The controls on top are very easy to use too... no problems anywhere... I don't know why there are so many bad reports on this great CANON MG3660... RECOMMENDED BY ME... BUGBUYER LEE

Perfect Christmas gift to myself
I bought myself this printer (Big W) for Christmas and I love it.
I set it up through the router on both my phone and computer. It was easy to do.
I have printed 2 binders of recipes from both the computer and phone tonight with no issues at all.
It was nice and cheap, wireless and included ink.
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.
Easy set up
So easy to set up, downloaded the app logged in to the home router and job done took about 5 minutes, print quality seems on par with the price of the printer and is quite fast, no paper jams so far, thanks cannon for the high quality and affordable product.
