This printer is great!! I got this printer about two months ago, paid $150 from amazon, and I've had very few complaints. It truly is a great printer, and exceeded my expectations. I was hesitant at first to get this printer because I wasn't actually able to find it in stores (not available at the major electronic stores), and didn't have a chance to test it out ahead of time. Trust me on this though, it really is great!

PROS:

Simple to set up

Excellent print quality

Great software (easy to use)

Memory slots

Great color LCD display

Print on both sides of the paper without having to do any work!!

2 paper feeders (comes in handy...automatically switches when one is out)

Very quick

Cheap Cartridges (around $12 per color)

5-cartridge printer (when one color runs out, you don't have to replace the whole cartridge, just the one that is out)

Extremely easy to install cartridges (lights inside the printer tell you whether it is installed properly or not)

Easy to scan and copy

Quiet (once it has "warmed up"

EXCELLENT VALUE (beats most of the $300-400 printers)

CONS:

a bit BIG and clunky

no fax

takes a while to "warm up" (once it warms up...its FAST)

This is by far the best printer I have ever used. The only concern I would have is that if you don't have much space, you might be in trouble, but that would be the case with almost any other all in one (this is a little bigger than normal though). I already had a fax, so the fact it didn't have that feature wasn't a big letdown, but if you have to have a fax, I would still go with Canon (cheapest cartridges and great quality).

I have had many printers and multifunction printers but this one has to be the best of the lot. It is easy to set up and the photo prints I have printed have had the best colors and no blurring what so ever of the lines. There are two paper trays so I keep photo paper in one and plain paper in the other so I do not have to physically get up and change out the paper. The MP500 has a smaller footprint than other multifunction printers which saves space. You can connect your camera directly to the printer or insert the camera memory card or print from your computer. This is a wonderful product and Canon knows what people want and need with a reasonable price.

I am very impressed. I have had my printer for about a week and have enjoyed every moment. I have found it easy to use and the picture editing software is good.

PRO'S: 8 1/2 x 11 pictures are perfect! Colors are bright and vivid and extremely CLEAR! No grainy ink dots or lines.

Fast (but not a speed demon)

Ink was easy to install (click in place and a light comes on to let you know that the cartridge is installed properly).

The 2.5 inch viewing screen angles so that I can see the image on the screen even when the lamp is right above me. No glare.

The menu was easy to use. I thought it was very easy to set up for my personal preferences.

CON'S: This thing is extremely large. I have a printing drawer built into my computer desk and the MP500 would not fit into the space. Made my other all-in-one look like a baby. I had to make room for a smaller table on wheels in the corner to put this baby on and purchase a longer USB cable ($25).

USB cable is not included (most printers do not include this item).

Shiny and black make this beauty a dust magnet and shows every fingerprint.

Anyway, the cons would not prevent me from purchasing this item. I searched forever before deciding on it. I didn't think the price was bad at all for what you get. The print resolutions up to 9,600 x 2,400 dpi color and 600 x 600 dpi black are what pushed me to buy it. I'm not disappointed.

A button must be pushed to open the slot where the paper comes out. I am finally getting used to opening it before trying to print. Pushing the button will become a habit before long and I won't think much of it but it has annoyed me a little.

I've been using this for 5 months now and I LOVE THIS PRINTER! It is a TRUE All-In-One. The Epsons and HPs have been redesigned as photo printers with a couple of scan and copy features so they can masquerade them as all-in-ones. But this Canon does it ALL with great features - dual paper feeds (cassette tray and sheet feed), printed user guide booklet (rather than those other companies which only give you an inconvenient CD), double-sided printing (how cool is that!), double-sized black ink cartridge and many copy features including incremental reduce/enlarge. All the other photo "all-in-ones" we looked at had virtually eliminated all but the most basic copy features. A million thanks to Canon for not sacrificing the advanced copy features! We also appreciate Canon's 800 customer service support line with polite, helpful, readily accessible representatives. What a change this has been from years using Epson with their surly customer service reps, unimaginative product features and problematic print heads which were forever clogging and running wasteful cleaning cycles.

I use my all-in-one daily for a mix of home and business use - letters, contracts, fliers, graphics, invitations, business cards, copying myriad types of documents, scanning and of course photos. Cheap long-lasting cartridges, too, that let you use them until they're completely empty, unlike my previous Epson which forced you to change out when they were low but not empty. Can't say enough good things about this product...
