Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 76 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Reasonably straightforward to set-up. Print quality very good; although not printed any photos yet (only colour documents). The speed seems good (however, that may be purely subjective) and the auto-duplex is impressive! Just replaced the Black cartridge after about six weeks with the XL variant, which should last longer. Oh, and the scanner is effective. 03 March 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Excellent value for money Unfortunately the first was faulty, it ate the paper as did the second. John Lewis's service however was exemplary and they were very helpful and supplied one that worked perfectly with the minimum of delay or inconvenience. I have checked with Canon who say the fault I have experienced is most unusual, perhaps unprecedented. I recommend buying this because in the event of any trouble John Lewis will look after you with absolutely no fuss. 03 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Canon Pixma Easy to set up. Quiet. So far very pleased. Excellent delivery service from John Lewis. 03 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality printer Excellent modern, easy to install and use quality printer at an excellent price. 17 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent review Very pleased with product. Easy to set up and just what I required as a printer for my iPad 17 February 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by probably be returning for a refund Purchased this printer on Saturday, and whilst I can scan wirelessly to my PC or to the SD card slot, I cannot scan to Cloud. specification clearly states that it can scan to cloud. "Scan to PC, Document Scan (PDF, Compact PDF, JPEG, TIFF, PNG), Photo Scan (JPEG, TIFF, PNG), Auto Scan Mode, PDF file creation with optional password security, Text recognition (OCR), Scan and Stitch, Scan to Cloud, Scan to e-mail, Scan to memory card" When trying to register the printer with PIXMA Cloud Link with Google Cloud Print - I keep getting "server not available, please try again later" message. This is now the 4th day ! Have contacted Canon - who says for me to contact Google ! Easier to return the printer for a full refund and to purchase an alternative. 10 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Feels flimsy but works well enough Easy to set up and AirPrint is a big advantage. Worst problem is the inadequacy of the paper output tray which lets multi-page documents fall all over the floor 09 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased Principal reason for buying this item was the ability to print direct from my phone and iPad rather than having to boot up the home PC. The printer was straight forward to set up, following the step by step instructions provided, and it does what it says on the tin. Only used it for printing so far, not tried photocopying or scanning but very happy with it. Also chose this model after researching the cost of printer ink. Many cheaper printers are not such a bargain once you factor in extortionate ink costs but this one is reasonable. Overall, very pleased and would happily recommend. 08 February 2015
