Not a deal


Was excited to get all the options on this printer for a reasonable price. It wasn't too bad to set up. After moving it around from upstairs to downstairs, the paper started jamming. Did all the suggested fixes. Online it seemed it is a common problem....

Jams Easily

I installed the software(MX470 series full driver & software) in two laptops, one using Windows 8 that went flowless and in the second one with windows 7, eventhou it said it was a successful installation, the software did not installed at all. Trial...

NO!!!! Don't Buy!


Terrible printer. Have had trouble with the printer since the first couple of weeks. The printer paper drawer is underneath the printer so you have to lift up the printer and hold it suspended to reload paper.

Needed to replace my home office printer. This product was offered at a great price, looks great in my office, and performs beautifully. Great service at Best Buy as usual.

Consumer review by:

works perfect for home use


Bought this unit on sale and it was well worth the full price without the sale. Works flawless, good name brand, perfect for the amount of printing we do, which is a few prints a week for school and other randoms.

Wireless connection, easy setup

Nothing I can think of

great printer for wifi


I had no problems with the set up of this printer. It was quick, took about 20 minutes. I use my smart phone way more than my lap top, so this printer is awesome for people like me. Connected easily with my phone. Haven't got to try the fax though!

The only thing is the wireless feature. It's is a bit difficult to connect wirelessly via wifi.
