    • Terrible choice in printer

      from Calgary, AB on September 17, 2018

      Cant say a whole lot of good about this printer. If its not connection issues every time you go to use its any other number of errors like jamming brand new paper and saying load paper while there is paper in with the casette closed and engaged as it should be or any other thing that could go wrong. If youre thinking about buying this i would keep looking. i cant recall a time ive used this thing in the last year since buying that it hasnt taken atleast 30 minutes of F'ing around with it for a simple print. Garbage just an awful product.

    • Worst printer in existence

      from Toronto, ON on September 12, 2018

      I never break stuff, but I got so frustrated with this printer I actually physically destroyed it!! Never buy one! Over complicated. User interface completely not user-friendly. You would save more time and money going to the library and printing there. Even that will be faster than using this printer!! Please, don't buy it!

    • It is so bad

      from Calgary, AB on July 14, 2018

      nope, returned it after 10 days. just not working. connectivity is a hit and miss. good luck

    • do not buy!!!

      from Toronto, ON on July 5, 2018

      The worst printer and scanner I have ever head. It NEVER EVER detects wifi so you have a huge problem with scanning anything. Colors are faded. It is hard to manage, very difficult to set up anything. Horrible!!!

    • Aweful

      from Burlington, ON on May 4, 2018

      Not happy, would work for 1 day then next day not over and over again had to reinstall every day. I had a printer for 12 years paper never once jammed or gave me a single problem. it became obsolete to windows 10 I had installed. That is how I thought printers were.Good reliable functioning products. Now garbage. I read reviews for first time and am shocked that as consumers we THINK we have to tolerate this. Not acceptable in an age where we are advancing? This piece of crap jammed first time and there after.

    • Recommend looking elsewhere

      from Ottawa, ON on April 10, 2018

      DISCLAIMER: I have a PIXMA 432, not this exact model. That said, I don't think I will consider Canon again. The drivers were bloatware, loaded with features I will never use. The self cleaning function was all but useless, and unlike other inkjet printers, I couldn't figure out how to remove the printheads for a physical cleaning. While I got the WiFi to work OK, I couldn't get my PC to recognize the physical connection. This meant scanning, a feature I wanted, didn't work. Print quality was just OK. But due to the printhead problem, the unit was scrap after only 2 years -- and I don't print all that much. Saving grace? It was only 50 bucks on sale. Still, I wished I had spent a little more and gotten better.

    • DO NOT BUY!!!!

      from Campobello Island, NB on February 28, 2018

      I am a real estate agent and thought I was making a wise investment...it runs out of ink less than two days, when scanning important documents, it shifts them to the side, then snags them. The printer has basically never worked, have to go to the library for printing, and the scanner has always been hit and miss, but now it's wait 15 minutes for one page. All the good reviews (the ones that start negative but end with a positive "I figured it out" five stars) are likely fake. I live three hours from purchase site, or else I would've taken it back. This machine has probably hurt my business, as well, and, from what I've heard, a good printer can be bought for way less.

    • Wifi doesn't work,

      from Montréal, QC on February 21, 2018

      Wifi doesn't work, and the unit constantly has to be restarted.

    • Good Printer

      from Brampton, ON on February 20, 2018

      Great value for the price. The bad reviews are really unwarranted. Set up is easy and all the features that a printer should have are there.

    • Excellent

      from Sarnia, ON on January 11, 2018

      Great printer for the price, video really made setup an ease
