We can buy an expensive ink pen and get very cheap replacement cartridges for them, a computer printer should be the same way.

I have used an Epson for several years, being loyal to the brand, but have grown intolerant of the printing quality. No matter how much I calibrated the printer, I still go blue streaks everywhere for normal printing. Very frustrating.
'
The PIXMA MP280 has satisfied that need. It comes with a bunch of bells and whistles, but I was looking for something I would use every day to print, scan and copy, something to replace my Epson printer and Epson scanner (two separate components). This fit that need very well.

The price would lead you to believe that its quality is not very good. However, unless you're a photographer or graphic artist who requires really high resolution output onto really good paper, this is a fine addition to the office.

With that said, here are some notes:

First, you need to supply your own USB printer cable for this device. The printer does not come with one. Personally, I find this to be a huge miss. No manufacturer should assume that any customer has all the tools for the job. It's the same cable I use for my Epson, so I'm fine. This is such an easy way to make it easier on the end user. Therefore, this is a big miss.

SETUP AND INSTALLATION: I'm on a Mac, so setup was complete and I was printing in under 30 minutes. The manual says you need at least 20 minutes for software installation, but mine was installed in less than 10.

OUTPUT: Color printing was satisfactory. Nothing that I could hang on a wall (but I don't need it.) At standard printing, the color output was insanely slow - less than two pages per minute. If you use color printing at the "fast" selection, not much quality is sacrificed, and the printing came out to about four pages per minute.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Using a PC, total set up time was about 30 minutes from unpacking to printing the first page. But it started out badly:

There was no USB Printer Cord in box, so if I didn't have an extra around the house, I wouldn't have been able to hook this up to my computer. There should have been a note that this would not be in the box, not just an omission of what IS in the box.

Ink cartridge insertion was very easy. I must say, btw, that I have a Canon PIXMA 1P4700 Premium Inkjet Photo Printer, and can easily compare the two. Insertion of the cartridges on the 4700 was very simple as well which is why I was interested in its "baby brother" for just fast, easy, ordinary print.

Color output - satisfactory. This printer is made for everyday printing, not hanging museum-quality prints on the wall. Does a nice job. But printing color pages was outrageously slow - only about 2 pages per minute. Ugh. The 4700 prints 9600 x 2400 dpi. This MP280 does a max of 4800 x 1200 dpi which may be fine for 4x6 prints, but I print mostly 5x7 and 8x10. The MP280 didn't do well with larger prints and, judging from the way this one (too) is eating ink, this could be a very expensive process.

Speaking of ink, I continue to be disappointed by ALL manufacturers, but in this case by Canon for not making the cartridges of at least SOME of its printers interchangeable. In addition to buying for my primary 4700, now I have to spend up to $12 a cartridge for the MP280. However, I think that I will buy "after market" ink for this printer since my photographs will continue to be printed on the 4700.

The copying process was very easy - one button and you can get color or b/w copies. It takes about 15-20 seconds to make a copy, sometimes an eternity.

The Canon PIXMA MP 280 Inkjet Photo All-in-one is a very reasonably priced multi-functional printer. But it consumes a lot of expensive ink. In fact, a single refill of black and color ink costs more than the printer itself did. The accompanying instructions are well-written and the set-up is very easy. I assume the reason for the low price of the printer is to get customers to buy a lot of very expensive ink. But most printer brands are this way ,and Canon printers are excellent. Buying cheaper generic ink has not been a good idea in my experience since these inks are often incompatible and cause the branded printer to malfunction or not function at all.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a surprisingly good combination printer/scanner/copier for the money, and it is an excellent choice for most home users, so I am basing my review and star rating on that basis. It's very good for printing nice vacation or family pictures or making greeting cards or such. You can do nice borderless prints up to 8.5 x 11 inches. There are more expensive and higher-quality printers available for professionals, but a printer like this is a better choice for casual users.

I was also very happy with the quality when printing a text document. The text appeared very crisp and clear.

The printer is quite lightweight and easy to handle. Setup was quite painless except for the problem of not having a USB cable included in the box. This is so annoying, but Canon is not the only manufacturer guilty of this shortcoming.

Basic usage is fairly intuitive, but I recommend loading the manual from the included CD. It is quite comprehensive, but easy to navigate and understand. This printer has quite a few unexpected features. As one example, although it is easy to scan using the autoscan feature, there are many other settings and options available for scanning, including saving in PDF format and even a rudimentary OCR function to convert scanned text document to editable text.

The copier function also works well for a basic model. Keep in mind that it is limited in size to an original of 8.5 by 11.7 inches. It can reduce or enlarge, but only in set sizes, primarily between full-page size and 4 x 6". At the price of this printer, I was not expecting any reduce/enlarge functions at all, so here I am counting it as a plus, not a minus.
