I recently purchased the Canon PIXMA MG2220 all-in-one printer because it was about two dollars more than the replacement black ink cartridge for my old HP printer. And this macine prints, copies and scans.
I don't find it to be too slow for my needs. And the print quality is good. So was the color quality when I copied an old photo. I only print occasionaly and then , usually in just black. To my pleasant surprise, the replacement black cartridge for the Canon is about half the cost of the HP cartridge. If you go for this, you may find that even after installing the software disc, you will still have to go to Canon's website to download the instruction manual. There is only a quick set up guide included. And, yes, you will need a USB cable to connect this to your computer. As to scanning, I have an older computer with Windows XP, so I have to click on "Control Panel", in "Programs", then go to "Scanners" and proceed from there. And, you must first turn on the printer or you will not even see a reference to Canon under "Scanners". But, even though that's a lot of keystrokes and screens to go through to scan, it worked well enough for me. I will not be scanning often. All in all, I'm quite satisfied. And Walmart had the best price on the web. If it only lasts awhile, it will still be cheaper that just replacing the old HP cartridge. It seems a shame that we are such a "disposible" society. And we wonder why the landfills are almost at capacity!
