Worst Canon Ever Owned


The MX472 is the worst Canon product we've ever owned. It's absolutely lousy; performance is far worse than the Canon MP180, which is not too bad a little machine. Both aforementioned products share a similar problem -- very expensive ink cartridges...

pixma mx 472

Worse Printer Ever


Terrible, stops working every day. When I do the repair on Canon it says it is fixed, HAH!!! Wouldn't recommend Canon printers to anyone. I bought the printer because I thought Canon had good equipment and a Good Name
