I bought this printer thinking it was black, and it is white. Bought it thinking it had a scan function, set it up, needed to scan with it a few days later, no scan button. So I had to re-install my old printer/scanner to get my task accomplished. Now I read that it does have a scan function, just don't know where it is, or how to use it, and haven't been able to find it in the service guide on line.
I have 3 Canon cameras, fine quality, printer works good, if I could find that darn scan button. And yes, the USB cord would have sure been nice, I used the one off my old printer, which I now have installed and am using because I don't know how to scan with the new one. This is on top of trying to go from Vista to Ten all in the same week, good thing I stopped drinking a while back.
