Advantages: All in one - prints, scans and copies, very easy to use, works well
Disadvantages: No USB supplies, expensive cartridges,
I have owned this printer for around 6 months, and I am very happy with it. It is averagely sized, pale grey coloured with a black area at the front. The controls are located conveniently at the front, and are pretty self-explanatory to use, for scanning, photocopying, starting and stopping printing and switching the printer on and off.
The area at the back for inserting paper has a ruler marked onto it, showing you where to insert different sizes of paper (maximum A4). I use the printer with several different sizes of paper and all work perfectly. There is a small piece of plastic that slides along the ruler, to hold paper in place and ensure printing is straight.
The top of the printer opens for scanning, a feature that also works well, the only downside being the loud noise the printer makes when scanning. You can scan images onto a computer, or photocopy them and print them straight out, a feature I like because of how quick it is.
The printer opens easily for changing cartridges and a fold out arm holds it in place. Changing the cartridges is very easy and the instructions included are clear.
The printer is fairy compact and folds away nicely - the tray at the bottom and the paper stand at the back can both be folded in for storage.
The quality of printing is very good, particularly with photo paper, and you can choose from different modes such as high quality, medium and quick print.
Overall, a great printer that does everything you want it to for a good price. The only problems I can find with it are the cost of ink cartridges which do have to be replaced quite frequently, and the fact that the printer does not include a USB cable (you can buy these from Argos for around £3). I use unofficial printer cartridges which work, however the printer continues to claim it has low ink until an official Canon one is used. This is a little annoying, but a minor setback to what is, overall, a great printer.
Summary: A good printer that does everything you need
