I've had this printer for over a year now and it's been nothing but trouble. Never have I been able to turn it on, press print and get my document. It is so prone to not working and I've now decided to throw it over a cliff and never buy a canon again....

Takes so long to get going, takes so long to think about printing, takes so long to decide there's a problem. It has never worked properly for me and I do not use it much as it is.

Canon PIXMA MG5150


Simple to set up. Very easy to use. I bought 2 of these. One for my daughter who is very happy with the print quality of the photos.

Not used much, but seems to have used half a cartridge of black ink which I can get quite cheap via amazon.
