Good points:
Superb quality prints, very easy to use, great software package to go with it. The wireless connection is really useful with multiple PC's in the household. I like that there is 2 paper trays, one for normal and one for photo paper, and it picks automatically so you don't have to keep swapping and changing it out.
Bad points:
A real faff to set up, have to go through the full setup on each and every machine.

Printers Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Ultimate quality photo mini-lab for the analogue and digital photographer.

Designed for analogue and digital photography, this premium All-In-One delivers superior photo prints with dedicated grey ink for ultimate monochrome images as well as 35mm film and slide scanning.

Photo and document printing

Top-quality, fast printing is delivered by the combination of an impressive 9600×2400dpi resolution*, tiny 1pl ink droplets for smooth, grain-free colour and monochrome images. The additional grey ink tank delivers superior-quality monochrome photo prints. The print speed for a photolab-quality 10×15cm borderless print in just 20 seconds*.

The ChromaLife100+ system** provides long-lasting, beautiful prints via a combination of the PIXMA MP980, certain Canon genuine photo papers and a new formulation of dye-based inks.

The PIXMA MP980 prints high-quality documents, with a pigment black ink delivering crisp, sharp text and dye-based colour inks for vibrant graphics.

Print with or without wires

Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity means that you can share your printer over an existing network.

6 Single Inks

The 6 Single Inks can be replaced separately, minimising ink wastage and helping to save money. A Smart LED on each ink tank provides a visual indication if a colour is running low or in need of replacement.

User-friendly functions

A wide range of features are available to improve the user experience. Quick Start allows operation within seconds, while the 8.8cm TFT display makes PC-free operation clear and concise – enhanced by the Easy-Scroll Wheel for simple menu navigation.

Advanced Media Handling

The auto duplex feature allows you to print doubled-sided documents, while two paper trays let you load two different types of media at the same time – plain and photo paper, both up to A4 size. DVD/CD printing allows you to produce professional-looking DVD/CDs with ease.

Software

The PIXMA MP980 comes with the Easy-PhotoPrint Pro plug-in for both Adobe Photoshop and Canon Digital Photo Pro to integrate the All-In-One into your workflow and achieve professional control over your printing. MP Navigator allows quick and easy access to the functions of the PIXMA MP980.

Scanning

Superb colour scans are delivered at 4800×9600dpi resolution using the high-quality CCD scanner. White LED reflective scanning means there is zero warm-up time, and a film adaptor unit offers 35mm film and slide scanning. Additional features include scan to memory card and USB function, and an Auto Scan Mode.
