Good printer (if you can get it connected)

 

The secret to making this printer the best money you've spent isn't included with the printer. - A USB A to B cable will be needed if you do not want to use the wireless. THIS IS NOT INCLUDED! You've been warned. - You will not find the wireless steps...

Works like a charm, it ; is wireless. Works perfectly with a USB cord as well ; is well priced (it's $70 and has wireless!) ; is moderately quick, both to recieve the print job and to print the job ; prints in color ; is Google Cloud Print ready ; is...

A few flaws, including ; the color prints are not fantastic ; it's hard to set up (especially if you don't know how) ; it needs an access point for the wireless ; the directions suck (for the wireless details, anyway) ; the software is bad. My advice...

Wouldn't Purchase Again

 

I have an MG 3500 that has given me problems ever since it was new. Printer errors are the norm, not the exception. We have spent more time sorting out the problems than actually using it. I'm finished with the Canon Printers. If this is an example of...

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...

Works great with my Google Chromebook. Took me awhile to find the right printer.

nice printer

 

This printer does a good job for the price. It was very cheap and I feel a good bang for the buck. I will admit the wireless thing has me a bit confused so I went old school and hooked it up via cord to the computer. I'm very happy with my purchase....

Works pretty well for Airprint

 

Purchased this for Airprint from iPad's and a remote laptop. doesn't always work with the laptops, and sometimes I have to turn the printer off and back on. Otherwise we're satisfied. It was easy to set up one I figured out to attach via usb for the...
