Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 95 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not doing what I wanted it for I wish to scan items and then print them out on the printer attached to my laptop. I can't find a way of doing this other than as an enlarged image instead of the size of the original. A business card prints out size A4. Awaiting help from Canon but no luck yet. On screen instructions not helpful. 23 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good printer. I found this printer very easy to set up and use. I have now printed, scanned and copied successfully from the PC. All very good quality. Also using it with my laptop, though this has been more difficult. I think I need to install the software- pity the instructions didn't say this had to be done on all machines - I've printed but only able to scan photos for some reason. The installed tool bar on the main PC is very useful and easy to use. 23 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does exactly what it says on the tin! Great printer, clarity and reliability are good. Easy to set up and works immediately. My only criticism is that for average volume printing, the ink cartridges don't last very long. Otherwise I'm very happy. Would recommend this printer. 16 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good printer Have had several canon printers in the past and wanted to stick with them. This works well, connected to the Wifi easily, but it is very flimsy in comparison to older models. The paper holder is very lightweight and will probably not stay the course. However, Canon's customer service is second to none, so I will be a very loyal customer. Bought the product online with Click and collect at the local Waitrose, and that service worked perfectly. 14 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't waste your money ...apparantly Google and Canon are not compatible products! This product has been a nightmare since day 1. Canon are blaming Google and guess what Google are blaming Canon. Repeatability goes off line for no explicable reason. John Lewis advice is just to take it off all appliances and then reinstall...this is not very satisfactory on a daily basis. Completely unreliable. Google telling me there is a compatibility problem with Google and Canon ....John Lewis didn't make me aware of this. Would strongly recommend your purchase another printer! 10 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this printer I couldn't be happier, at last a printer that is really straight forward and easy to use, thank you Canon and John Lewis. Plus a bonus a2 year guarantee. 10 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by efficient and affordable We were suspicious of buying a wireless printer, however the fears were unfounded. Very easy to set up and does the job of printing well. Some other comments have suggested that it is noisy in operation but we don't find it so. Time will tell if the cost of inks is high as we are still using the ink supplied with the machine. 29 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value for money So far have used as printer, scanner and copier. excellent results and very easy to use. Have not printed any photos yet but if up to usual Canon standards should be really good. Very easy to set up and wireless makes life so much easier. Overall delighted with this product. Our previous printer was a Canon which served us well for 12 years. 19 May 2015
