I have own Canon MX432 for 5 years. I am overall please but have to say I have not taken to learning all things capable of doing. The photo print, faxing, wireless connections, scanning is very good and worth the money.
I make my own greeting cards and the color runs out way before the black. The ink is costing too much for me to afford anymore. I really liked the printers that had individual colors, because you do not run out of all the color at the same time.
Printer was very inexpensive and does everything I need. Can't beat that! But a little difficult in setting up and connecting to wi-fi. Nevertheless, there is an online manual you can download.
Everything's fine with the printer except the cost of ink cartridges. Next printer will be a laser. It seems to run out of ink more frequently than my last Canon which they no longer make. Engineered for ink sales?
Canon is by far the most reliable copier and scanner on the market. The only negative thing about it and ALL printers is the price of the ink cartridges.

The Canon printer I have is great, I've had no problems with it, it works like it should, prints, scans, copies. I had this one than any of the others I had.
Canon ImageClass MF232W. This printer was difficult for me to hardwire with a USB cable to my Mac Pro desktop printer. I never was successful and had to resort with wifi which has worked flawlessly.
I have a Canon LBP6030 that is a front loading printer with easy access to switch from different types of paper in a hurry if you need to do that. Fast printing, reasonably priced cartridges too.
I have had so much more trouble with this Canon printer than I did with my last one, which was an HP. It seems like it's just one problem after another. I will not buy another Canon, I'm going back to an HP.
Scanner and copying are good, but still can't figure out how to use the fax. Also, the printer uses too much ink and won't let you continue to print if any of the colors have run out. Very annoying.
I've had 3 Canon printers (2 inkjets and a multi-function laser) over the last 15 years - the laser for last 6 years. Very reliable and quality made machines.
We use this Canon printer just for personal use and not too much but the inks finishes too soon and we should pay for inks very frequently. This printer is not worth it.
I love my printer because I have had it for two years and use it really. There has never been a problem with it. The ink is also not that expensive compared to the other printer I had.
I am very disappointed with Canon. We own a Canon Selphy Printer (among other Canon items) and when I bought extra paper and ink I purchased the wrong one. For printers I always buy in advance and in bulk because you never know when you need it and I do not want to run out when I need it. So the extra paper and ink that I have I must of purchased like a year ago and I probably bought it at Best Buy because that is where I usually buy those products but because it was a while ago I don’t remember for sure and I do not have the receipt. I called Canon to see if I can send to them the wrong item I bought and exchange for the correct one and the customer service representative told me I have to go back to the retailer and comply with their return policies.
WOW!!! I was shocked that a big company like Canon has such poor customer service. I told the representative there is no way Best Buy will let me return an open item I probably purchased about 1 year ago but the representative did not care. I was not looking for something free, just an exchange - wrong product for correct product. My daughter wants a new camera. It will NOT BE a Canon. Very disappointing. Attached is a picture of the product. To the left is the box of the correct item I ran out of and to the right is the wrong one I bought and did not notice it was wrong.
Canon's printer is very reliable, print is bold, clear, easy to read and I use this item a lot and is available for me each time. Very satisfied with the product.
Great looking pics. Quick to set up and works with my phone. Easy to cover and store too. Is not hard to start up after a period of non-use.
Best and most reliable MFP that I have EVER owned (seriously). The only issue was dirty rollers after about a year and the utility clean them right up and no other issues since. I will typically burn through a printer in about a year and a half. This MX922 is going on 2 and a half and works perfect and prints better pictures than my Kodak! (No wonder they're dying). I never thought I would give a perfect review to a printer, but this one earned it. I have bought all the different brands and they were all crap except for the Laser Jet.
For years I used Epson printers then their quality went downhill. Then I went to HP and I used HP for years then their quality went downhill. I got this Canon printer second hand for doing some work for somebody several years ago, it has never let me down.
Fantastic piece of engineering, easy set up, easier to get things done, wireless scanning/ printing, couldn't be happier or feel better about security.
My Canon printer is very easy to use and print quality is great. It’s a copier/scanner/printer/fax. This is one of the better printers I have owned. The price is very worth it.
Canon has and always will make a quality printer whether an entry level or business product. It is just what they do. Their name is on it and they can't afford questionable products.
My Canon M3220 is great but like most printers eats ink like crazy. Pictures are darker sometimes than they look on computer when printed. Trying to accomplish some tasks on it are very difficult and it doesn't have a top paper feed either.
Operating this is a nightmare. It never stops asking to register your paper then keeps saying I’ve got the wrong paper in the machine. Envelopes are even worse.
I bought this printer new for $29.99 and 2 new ink cartridges for it cost $34.00. I refilled the cartridges twice, but then I had to buy new ones. I actually bought another printer rather than the new ink cartridges. What a waste!
We have had HP's for so long we decided to get the Canon due to it being less expensive to run and buy ink. HP has priced itself out of my range to buy refills. They are ridiculous. Canon ink is less than half to replace ink.
Besides the high price for ink, my Canon printer is great and works great. It scans, prints and makes copies. The image garden tool I installed on my laptop is kind of daunting but I love my printer.
Printer would often have error code for repair that would disappear after a spray of canned air. Ink was too expensive and short-lived. And it was noisy.
When it works it does a great job and it also keeps spitting out blank pages just before it prints. Noisy as the devil as it makes clicking sounds before printing as well. The printing job is faultless however so I bear with these annoyances.
The D530 Image class is an older model but I bought it because the reviews showed good value on ink and reliability. The first time I changed the ink cartridge to a well rated generic one was a very long time. I don't need colored ink and have went through many color models including thermal back in the day. This one just keeps on rocking!
I bought a Canon ImageCLASS model 3240 many years ago. When I replaced a bad hard drive in my computer, I was not able to load the necessary information for the computer to read, and connect the printer. I phoned Canon, was immediately transferred to one of their techs, inside of 10 minutes, he had me up, and going. There was no charge for the service. I would never buy anything other than a Canon printer.
