Canon MG3520 White


Our primary modem/router is not a WPS device. Refusing to go buy a USB A/B cable and really needing to print something (and refusing to accept defeat) I dug out a spare router and ah-ha, it's WPS. I daisy-chained that to our current modem/router. Using...

Attractive, low-profile (although wide... fits nicely under my desk), decent print quality. It's $65, so seriously. What do you expect ; If you put it into "quiet" mode (once you worm your way into the remote UI) it is very, very quiet ; Is Cloud Print...

This thing is a horror to set up if you're stuck doing it the wireless, non-WPS way. It doesn't come with a USB cable. If you do not have a WPS router save yourself some tears and pick up a USB A/B cable (if you don't have one) when you buy this ; I...

Very Difficutl


Luckily, my dad had an old HP Printer USB cable that works with this unit. This allowed me to connect the printer to my computer and get it installed. However, I'm still not able to get the printer connected to the network, so it is not working as a...

OFFERS wireless printing (I say "offers" because I haven't been able to get it to work yet), ability to print from tablets, smartphones, remote email, etc

VERY DIFFICULT TO SET UP. It is difficult because an essential cable to install IS NOT INCLUDED with the printer. Don't ask me why, but there is no USB cable in the box to help you install the printer if you are having network issues. This is a gross...

Great printer for a college student


I purchased this printer for my youngest granddaughter who is away at college. She has been really pleased with its performance saying it has saved her many hours of copying her files and printing them elsewhere. The quality of the print is terrific...

looks nice, thats about it


I like the sleek design but the scan time is ridiculous! 19.20 seconds to scan a 4x6 photo. If I didn't have a photo project due tomorrow, i would return it for a better one. Printer heads were off when i opened the box, its clear on the "test" print....
