Canon Pixma MX892 Wireless Inkjet Office All-in-One


The Canon Pixma MX892 Wireless Inkjet Office All-in-One prints beautiful photos and has a good feature set for home-office use.

Attractive design. Very good photo quality. Prints from a number of media sources. Dual-function front panel. Duplexing ADF. 300-sheet paper capacity. Support for Pixma Cloud Link.

Below-par speed. High running costs.

Dead Printer


The features of the MX892 are numerous, intuitive and simple. Unfortunately, the printer died today, just under two years. This is not what I expected from a Canon product. There is clearly a design flaw in the power system.

I work from home and go through printers about every 2-3 years. Bought this printer and cleaned it regularly. Always use Canon printer ink. Printed a document and half way through it errored out with the B200 error. I have tried every single suggestion...

Best Printer I've Owned...


And I've owned many. This was my first canon product after using a series of different printers from the best known brand in the same and higher price range. I've experienced nothing but consistent quality over a two year period printing a combination...

Works all the time


Decent printer. Used Canon printers for decades. Could improve the software ease of use for the scanning.

I purchased this printer at my local Costco a year ago and I completely regret it. It won't let you print in grayscale (at least not easily), it takes forever to print, and the color runs out so frequently. I would never recommend this product to anyone!!

Horrible Printer- Stay away!


I advise everyone to stay far away from this printer. At first, I absolutely loved the features this printer had to offer. However, after a few months, wireless connectivity was starting to malfunction and I constantly had to reconnect to my computer....
