Uses a lot of ink & can't cope with LAN changes
It uses a lot more ink than our previous Brother printers so is more expensive to run. We also had to ditch the printer after we changed modem routers as it couldn't cope with the change. We tried manually setting all IP addresses, pressing modem button to connect and then resetting all on the printer and it still wouldn't connect properly. It said it connected to the modem but then wouldn't connect to print. The help on the canon page didn't offer any other helpful suggestions other than other people have had the same problem. We also found it to become louder with more use.
Extremely shoddy printer
I was very disappointed with this printer. Extremely unreliable, has stopped working multiple times and won't print properly. Faded and incomplete prints, even though the ink levels are high. Would certainly not recommend.
Purchased in September 2018.

Printers have come a long way!
After a Microsoft 10 update, I found that the HP1360 MFC printer that I inherited from my father wouldn't work. This is the first printer that I HAVE EVER BOUGHT and it was on a CHOICE recommendation in their March 2018 edition. I have just set it up and it was a bit of fiddling around but the results seem to be very good indeed. I was supplied with a few sheets of glossy photo paper and they worked very well. It is a huge technological leap from my previous printer, with capabilities that I may be unlikely to ever use. I got the red one becaus...e it looks smick, It seems to be relatively compact. The instruction manual is a bit sparse, but if you read it properly, everything should work out OK. The on line instructions required a bit of careful reading at times, but they do appear to be accurate. I don't know how long the ink cartridges will last, but I'll bet that they won't be particularly cheap. I may have to check out other providers to see how it works out. A good idea is to check out the settings in your computer before you start to print anything. A well priced and seemingly flexible printer.

Surprising quality for $125. Get'em quick before they supersede them...
Windows 10 wouldn't drive my 12 year-old Canon LiDE25 flatbed scanner that sat alongside my 7 year-old Canon Pixma 100. Replacing the scanner looked like costing upwards of $140 so I looked at a range of printer scanner combos.. The TS9060 rated well in Choice and the features and footprint suited our needs. I had to ring around a bit to find one "ïn stock" at the normal suppliers.
The setup was a little confusing for me. I'm older, and I prefer a comprehensive setup booklet rather than having to fill in the gaps online. But once I was...up and running, I kept finding new and pleasing features and qualities that make me realise how the technology had leapt forward in those years since I had bought a printer or a scanner. We use it for scanning, copying and general printing, both of which happen at good speed, and at a very good quality. The paper cassette is a good size too. It has Near Field Communication, as well as wifi - my wife connected her iPad to it to air print (a first). I tried one photo print (for fun - hard to beat K-Mart 10 cent prints) on the photo paper supplied with the printer and, like the other reviewer, was impressed. It also incorporates a jig for printing labels on CDs - if anybody still does that. Before I bought this printer, I checked up on ink cartridge prices. A full, genuine replacement suite will cost you more than I paid for the printer. However, I've used compatible cartridges exclusively in my old Pixma for the last 7 years, with no problems and easily sourced from eBay and other places. So that's where I'll be heading - probably pretty soon, as the printer comes with the limited capacity "setup" cartridges. A minor negative is that the machine doesn't come with the USB type B cable for direct connection to your PC. Add $10 if you don't already have one.

Extremely high photo quality prints
I have to start by saying I've read some bad reviews of this, and other consumer grade Pixma printers. I've previously used the older MG7560 which uses the cheaper/older ink as well with very good results.
Seems like a lot of the complaints are around configuration. I work with technology daily so I won't assume everyone had it as easy as I did but windows 10 literally configured itself. I did find the canon driver to be more fully featured though.
Build quality is fairly flimsy but I don't expect it will thrown around too much so hopeful...ly it holds up. Now, the quality of the output is nothing short of amazing for a consumer grade printer. This model comes with 6 inks. A pigment black for text on regular office paper and Photo black, grey, cyan, yellow and magenta in dye inks for photo printing. The thing most people don't know is that not all photo paper is created equally. I splashed out on some good ilford smooth pearl and I can honestly say the prints are some of the best I've seen, from any printer. Get some good paper if you want to print photos.
Questions & Answers
Can you type out envelopes?
I've not used it for envelopes. I mainly use it for photographs so I can't answer your question, sorry. However, the manual for the 9000 series says it can.
