Good quality prints. Value for money product.

Wish it was faster. (then again it's an ink jet printer and not a laser printer - to be fair) The printer makes a lot of noise when it prints.

It looks nice

It is not compatable with my AppleMac despite my having checked the version software, which says it is. Have contacted Canon twice with 2 different answers. I am now told that sofware disc provided is not the right one. Have downloaded drivers, still...
