Love the price, love the printer.

 

would buy it again.

Compact and easy to use

could be more silent starting up

Consumer review by:

For the PRICE, it's the best there is!

 

With all its features for such a low cost, and the great quality of the product, if you can handle the *noise* it makes, you WON'T be disappointed! Updated on May 7, 2009

VERY* INEXPENSIVE - and it does ALL THAT??!!! Easy to set up. Nice design/good quality. User-friendly. Excellent clarity

VERY NOISY! I knew this before i bought it, but followed others' advice and decided it'd be worth it - IT IS! (the noise is "normal" for this product - per every review i've read)

Consumer review by:

wanted a cheap scanner and got a decent printer too

 

bought it at p.c. world (would never go there normally ((too expensive)), but i needed a cheap scanner quick, ended up with this. cost me £39.00. The cheapest scanner they had was over £80.00.

looks good, not bulky, cheap(large volume ) inks

running xp 64 bit. when put the driver disc in the pc said " this cd cannot open on this operating system" however browsing the cd i found the 64 bit drivers....daft

Great Printer & Scanner

 

Great printer/scanner for any price, but at $65 or less, you can't beat it.

The software is simple, and doesn't take over your computer the way that HP software does. Scanner is fast and easy, and the printer puts out very good copies. "Light" setting is useful for basic printing while not using too much ink

This is not much of a con, but the printer heads take a few seconds to line up before printing starts. Once the print begins, it's quite fast

Consumer review by:

cheap, effective, cheap, useable

 

Rather then buy new ink, i'll just buy a new one.... LOL

Cheap, comes with ink, prints fast, all in one

Paper load, worst design ever, if you don't have enough paper in it won't automatically feed without you force feeding it

canon pixma 240

 

canon printers rock and so does this one

as the other use has said i to but this with a new gateway computer at bestbu@. sorry newegg. but let me just start of telling you that this printer/scanner is easy to use . printing is nice and clear almost as good as the professional ones .scanning...

i hate the fact it doesn't come with a usb power cord to plug into the computer.but you can get one at the dollar store for a buck ; other than that no cons

Consumer review by:

Best low price printer

 

Buy this printer, you will not regret it.

Very very clear prints. Unbelievable quality when printing photos with Canon Glossy II paper. Doesn't use as much ink as some other printers. Canon leads the industry with customer satisfaction and printer reliability according to consumer reports

Kindof slow sometimes when the printer is preparing to print. (I've had to wait as much as a minute for the printer to even begin to print as the printer cleans its print heads to prepare to print)

Canon MP240

 

Most of those cons are more just personal gripes because this really is a pretty good printer. Great if you dont need to print a lot. I dont use it for pictures so if thats what you want it for im not real sure how it does with those.

First of all this came with my new gateway computer that i bought from best buy (sorry EGG). This is a decent little all in one printer with good scanner and decent print quality. Its perfect for what i use it for. i dont really print a lot so i dont...

I dont like the fact that it doesent have an actual screen on it and its kind of hard to figure the darn thing out but once you do its fine. It also makes a lot of noise when it prints and the paper feed is kind of weird and a little unreliable
