Ok for the price
This is a handle little gadget. I mainly print lots of paper work for university. The ink doesn't last long but I guess with all new printers you will find less ink in the printer to start with. The price was affordable. I don't really have any other complaints as it prints just fine and that's all I need it for.
Good for the price
Fairly good printer for its price. For those saying the print quality in only satisfactory, I also found this but when I bought more expensive paper other than thechezpest ream I could find, the quality was definitely better. The wifi tends to be a bit hit and miss and it's not always easy but other than this I'm happy with my purchase.
Very good printer . Great for the money!
I don't understand why some people right negative aboute this printer. I replaced my MG 5660 with this MX726 and the deference is amazing. Faster auto documents feeder and takes the same cartridges as the MG5660 .so i didn't have to throw away my left overs. Wifi network very quick setup. Very happy with this printer. Highly recommended? $85 from officeworks.

The terrible people don't have a clue
Look.... for $85 what you get is phenomenal - <$10 for a pack of cartridges on eBay....... It works flawlessly over Wi-Fi and the output from both scans and prints are of a high quality. People that rated this low IMHO are just not tech savi. Don't blame the tool if you cannot use it... Why not 5 Stars.. - It's big but hell for cheap ink and an all in one unit... its a winner,.
High res photo printing
I think this is one of the best printing resolution without spending extra. It has its separate trays for 4x6s and A4s and it prints excellent photos and decent speed. I don't use the fax functionality because it's not really my era. It may sometimes spend a lot of inks while cleaning and it might make you spend more on inks. I tore my warranty (i feel this is a tough printer) and installed my own CISS. It was a bit hard to setup but once i got it going, the machine keeps rolling in and printing good photos. Too bad this is already phased out i think.
Not the fastest, but is a reliable and flexible home office printer
We bought this in 2013 to replace an old HP printer for our home office. We do not do a huge volume of anything and wanted an inexpensive and flexible, low volume machine that would handle our casual colour /BW document printing, a photo here and there, and be able to scan from the flatbed as well as the document feeder. We also wanted to be able to print double-sided without manual manipulation, and wi-fi print / scan to and from multiple PCs and i-things.
The MX726 has served and is still serving us well. Like all ink jets, it is a little...hungry, but you can swop out colour inks individually and also buy XXL-sized black ink for BW printing. I'd say it's fine for low-volume, casual printing and scanning. Really, a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. Inks are not often on special, so we usually buy a spare set whenever we see them for a good price.
Very Good to Excellent Printer
I agree that MX 726 is ink hungry but similar to most ink jet printers I feel - Scan feature is a ripper eg: 8 page single Sided A4 Colour 150 DPI to PDF took 34 seconds - fully completed to screen via wireless to Window 8.1 (That is impressive for a home office device) nice solid device for home office, great quality on photo printing as you would expect from a canon.
Questions & Answers
Can you scan negatives on a Pixma MX726? I notice there is a small film strip size panel before the A4 plate, is this specifically for negatives, if so, how do you use it? Thanks
Does anyone know the standard warranty on the Cannon Pixmar MX 626? Ours finally died. Purchased in late May 2015 and less than two years of erratic, problem-ridden use does not seem good value.
Will not be a repeat buyer of this brand.
Hi. I've been using canon printers for the last 25 to 30 years. They are the best value / performance printers on the market. But you have to pick the right model. The pixma 626 is not one of the good one's. I have the 726 wich is very good. It comes with 12 mth warranty as most printers on the market.
