Lilly, Occasional home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Auto aligns ink heads - you print a test page, scan it and from scanning the printer knows which lines were printed out of place and auto sets the roller heads. Economy/ fast print doesnt mean bad print quality with this printer and it's so handy having a one-touch copy button that doesnt require your PC to be on just to make photocopies.
Bad points:
I'd not say it bothers me personally, but something that is noticeable is when this printer preps to print it sounds like a beast!

Peter, Occasional home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Standard printing is good. I have not tried any photo printing so I'll give 8/10. Speed is good, if noisy.
Bad points:
It's wifi but doesn't work with iOS (iPad etc.). This is easily fixed with third party software, so I can't see why apple don't make all wifi printers capable of printing from your iOS device. If you want airprint to work and are not sure about implementing third party software (which may cost you more money) I would avoid this printer.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I haven't had the printer very long and I haven't even changed the ink cartridges but I have had no trouble so far and everything is working well. It was very good value for money and I have been pleased with canon printers which I have bought in the past.
