Customer Reviews

It was easy to set up the wireless connection.
Fritz
I'm not sure if it's the actual printer or the network connection, but it usually take an entire minute for the print job to be sent and finally printed.
Kayla Bradley
The copy, scan and fax functions are pretty straightforward and work really well.

Style Name: Printer Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have used several printers, including several all-in-ones, over the years. The three main brands that I've owned include HP, Epson and Canon. They each have their own set of perks and qualities, and overall the functionality and quality of printers have steadily improved over the years. I am still slightly partial to HP printers overall, but this Canon printer definitely has many things going for it. Below are some of my main observations.

**** Look and Build ****

If you are looking for an all-in-one that will help you reduce the clutter in your office or home, then this one is definitely not for you. It weighs over 30 pounds and occupies a significant amount of desktop real estate. It is however a very solidly built and generally very reliable printer.

**** Setup ****

The setup was relatively straightforward and pain-free. However, some of the more advanced functions are a bit hard to figure out how to do. The user manual is not of much help here.

**** Connectivity ****

A Wi-Fi printer connection nowadays seems like a must, and most printers that I've come across in recent years seem to have it as a standard option. This printer easily found my home network. I also appreciate the fact that it has AirPrint as a standard option. My household is heavily reliant on iOS devices and it feels wonderful to be able to print from any one of them.

**** Printing ****

This is definitely one of the best features of this all-in-one. The print quality is really high for a printer of this caliber, especially when it comes to photo printing. You can comfortably print pictures up to 8.5 x 11 and get some really astonishing results.

Style Name: Printer Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Length: 4:43 Mins
Canon, HP, and Epson have all largely perfected ink jet printers and this one certainly represents the Canon brand well. It's inexpensive, easy to configure, and delivers adequate quality for those looking for a low-cost office printer with minimal print needs. It does text and graphics well but it's really not designed for photos and high volume output.

The scanner has both a flatbed and auto documnent feeder but it is rather slow compared to more expensive devices. It supposedly offers duplex scanning but that option wasn't available on the Mac driver when I attempted to scan a document. Copying a document is very easy and there are separate buttons for monochrome and color copies. It also worked seamlessly with Apple's AirPrint protocol for zero configuration printing from an iPad and iPhone.

The unit is rather bulky and gets bulkier when paper is loaded as it requires having a tray extended out from the printer at all times. That tray can fold up when not in use but it won't print in that state either. Ink cost should also be a consideration as one set of replacement ink cartridges is about half the cost of the printer. The color inks are all in a single cartridge so if one of the three dries up the entire cartridge will need to be replaced even if the other inks have some life to them.

As with other printers in this segment of the market they are subsidized by the consumable cost, so if you plan to do more high volume work a laser printer might be a better option. I found the cost of ink replacement for this printer to be about the same as its competitors in this segment of the market.

For occasional printing and other light scanning and copying tasks this is a decent printer. But higher volume users may want to look at other options.

Style Name: Printer
The MX472 printer, scanner, and fax work very well for light home-office use, and wireless connections to several laptops (Windows 7 and Windows 8) was a 30-second snap each, so no issues there. I didn't get to try it with an iPhone or iPad.

My only and GREATEST issue is that for the price (currently close to $100) this printer does NOT support Auto-duplex printing (automatic two-sided printing). I gave it four stars instead of five because for not much more, you can get an automatic 2-sided printing model (see further below for recommended models). When first advertised, Amazon's description had a bullet point stating it had auto-duplex printing. This has fortunately been changed. "MANUAL" duplex printing is the ONLY "printer properties" option that comes up on the 472 model, so you have to go through the hassle of turning the paper around and manually re-inserting it in the bottom tray for it to print on the other side. This is a deal-breaker for me since I want to be able to print 2-sided copies from anywhere in the house without having to trek to the office to turn the sheets around. That's one of the reasons I want a wireless printer in the first place, so I can print from wherever I am and then collect my finished print jobs whenever it's convenient.

Difference between the Canon Pixma MX452 and MX472:
The only differences I found by reading all the product specs available is that the MX472 has these extra features:

1) Google Cloud Print: Allows users to print from Gmail and Google Docs on a mobile device, and from Google Chrome browser for Mac, Windows, Linux, and Chrome devices. With Google Cloud Print, you can print from wherever you are, from applications you use every day. You can even share your home and work printers with anyone you choose.
