I had done extensive research before buying a new printer and I'm glad I chose this one! This printer has all of the features I needed and more. Print quality is excellent and the setup is easy as well. I'll probably never use the fax but it's good to know I have the option. I also got a great bundle deal via Walmart.com. Canon does not disappoint!
EXCELLENT !, PRINTER / COPIER /SCANNER / FAX. AND IF YOU NEED HELP, CANON 800 # WILL HELP AND IT IS FAST.
This does it all. Print, scan, copy, fax. Its amazing, its fast, easy to set up, everything works perfectly, the wi-fi is great its so simple. Everything I needed and better than expected!
Best purchase. Great product. The speed is very good along with quality of print. I would recommend purchasing this to anyone. We are extremely please. Easy to connect wireless feature.
1) Machine is performing as described. I didn't have even one problem setting up the PC wireless connection, the fax settings, and the scan settings.
2) The Canon Pixma MX512 uses two ink cartridges, black & multicolor. The printheads are integral with the ink cartridge. This means that each year you get NEW printheads with the replacement ink cartridges. Otherwise you would be spending over $150 each year for a replacement printhead (needed for low volume users).
3) The auto scan provision is much easier to use than my former HP d145.
4) My first attempt at faxing went well. I just had to fax with black instead of color.
5) The color operational display on the unit is great. It is a great improvement over the older monochrome ones. Using it is mostly intuitive.
6) The instructions for the basic setup were helpful and have abundant graphics.
7) The machine is beautiful--it is much nicer looking than the picture.
1)There is no written manual. You have to read a topic several times to really understand it. Very time consuming. You can't make notes at appropriate areas of the on PC manual.
I've had this printer since Nov. 2012 and have not had a problem. It was a little hard setting up and it went off line once, so far, but it was really easy getting it back online. I use it mainly to print coupons and even though the ink is low right now, the quality of the print jobs are wonderful. No faded lines or error messages at the moment. Oh, I have had 1 paper jam.
Good bang for the buck!
I had read on-line reviews for this printer where some people had problems getting this wireless printer setup. I got through the setup without any real difficulty. I followed the steps to align the printer and again that was easy enough. I started printing and the first 10-15 pages printed beautifully. I was very happy with this printer up until this point.
Then the problems began. The next page I printed got jammed. It didn't look like a bad jam. It was just stuck loading the paper. I followed the steps in the troubleshooting guide to remove the paper jam without much difficulty. However, now when I tried to print the alignment was all messed up and some of the lines on the page are shifted to the left. Because things aren't aligned it looks blurry and is hard to read.
At this point I found that most of the diagnositic and repair features of this printer cannot be done wirelessly. I went through all of the auto alignment diagnostics that I could launch from the machine but the alignment problem remained. Next the guide said if that doesn't work try doing the manual alignment. To do this I had to get a usb cable to connect the computer to my laptop because the machine doesn't come with one. I then went through the very tedious manual alignment and every other option from the troubleshooting menu and the problem still remained.
I needed to print some things right away so I connected back up my old HP that I was replacing with this one (and which I had borrowed the usb cable from to do the manual repairs) and printed what I needed. I packed this Canon back up and returned it. I'm sure that I could have called Canon to get help but this printer was already much more trouble than it was worth.
I've only had the product a couple of weeks, but so far so good. Bought it for it's ability to print from our iPhones and iPad, and it works like a charm. Also set it up for our Mac Book and HP lap top. Works great all around. I live in Canada and bought this product in the U.S., so the warranty may be void in Canada. Something to think about if warranty is important to you.
Upon plugging it in experienced an error code 5011. After multiple attempts to clear the ink cartridge track was able to start the printer with no errors. Upon scanning first document noticed a constant black bar to the right of every scan. Cannot complete a full document scan without the black bars, might be a portion of the scanner that is dead or broken. Will be returning and not purchasing another one due to this experience. Complete fail and disappointment from Canon.
I love, love, love it! very easy to set up. Took me less than 30 minutes.,and i am a computer nerd.Very easy and clear instrutions. Wireless is the way to go.You will not be sorry you bought it.
I work through a VPN the printer will not work via wi fi unless I disconnect from the VPN. Otherwise works great, a little trouble trying to figure out how to work options. But then if all else fails read the directions
Looking for an All-in-One Printer with wireless access? Stop shopping! This is your baby! As a Consumer Reports member, I checked out all of the printers in this category; and the Canon PIXMA MX512 is by far the best for the money! I love the wireless! My wife teased me because I muted the TV so I could hear the printer in the study print a document I sent to it! Now, to be fair, I haven't had it long enough to verify how it does on ink usage. But the quality of print for regular Word color documents has been far above average! I am so pleased, I am considering getting one for the office!
A fantastic printer with easy set-up; had difficulty with my virus protection, stayed on phone with Canon customer support and they walked me through until I cleared the problem!
Great printer and an even better price. Not even Amazon, Ebay or any other outlet had this printer at this price.
I love this printer.....it works great and my son also has one and they have no problems...the only thing i wish, if it came with the larger ink tanks to begin with.
we were well pleased with the CANON PIXMA MX512, was not bulky, nice looking piece of equipment complimented our computer we already had, easy to set up, glad we did our homework before we purchased one,you cant go wrong. Thank you walmart for making it so easy to order it on line and pick it up at the store. EASY TO SET UP.
this was hard to set up wireless but worth the effort. The scanner is all I wanted it to be and more, copies good and quickly. On screen menu gives great flexibility.
Set-up was easy and output has been great.
I am still learning how to operate efficiently all the features like scanning and photo printing. So far it is operating as good or better than similar priced printers that I have owned.
