Top Customer Reviews
Quality: The image quality of this printer is stunning the detail level and color reproduction is great! When compared to the Canon iP6600 the color and detail reproduction seem to be slightly better.
Speed: It is fairly fast for photo printing its not a speed demon or anything but it is faster then most printers I have used.
Features : This printer has a ton of features too many to discuss but it can scan images it has a card reader and can be hooked up to the network via ethernet or via wifi.
Ink Consumption : This printer is also very easy on the ink and the wallet. Ink seems to last a fairly long time even when doing a lot of photo prints.
Setup: Setup was painless I installed all 4 of these units in about 40 mins just run the disc connect the printer install the print head and then the ink cartridges. ( I do however wish they used less packaging )
All in all I woud definitely recommend this to a friend. I have yet to have a single problem with any of the 4 and they are being used by tons of people each day for photo printing.
Edit; I forgot to mention that I have only tried this on Windows XP can't comment on the problem the other user spoke of with Macintosh Snow leopard 10.6.
Out of the box, the printer was easy to setup. I opted for wireless printing, because I can't stand cables. I have 2 Mac laptops running OS X 10.6 and Apple's Time Capsule. Connecting the printer to Time Capsule couldn't be any easier. I opted to install the Canon software which took some time. After the software installation, I could see the printer and send a test page. Overall, it took me about 20 minutes.
I did run into a problem with wireless scanning. Every time I attempted to scan, I received an error message that the scanner couldn't be found. I admit that I was puzzled. Thirty minutes later, after reading a post, I realized that my firewall was blocking the incoming traffic. Duh! I adjusted my firewall setting to allow the scanner traffic in, and wireless scanning was working just fine.
I find the printer prints much faster than the Epson printer. The images from wireless scanning are very clear and sharp compared to the images that I did with the Epson via cable. I'm very satisfied with Canon and would consider purchasing another one over Epson and HP.
1). Canon's interfaces are simple, uncluttered, intuitive and functional - much better and user-friendly than HPs. I should have expected this because that's exactly how the canon Camera interfaces are. And unlike HP, I don't get these ridiculous popup messages that tell me whether my printer is on or off, etc.
2). I am pretty sure that my laptop boots up faster ever since I uninstalled all the HP software and installed Canon's.
3). The PIXMA MP640 is surprisingly fast to boot up and to print. After reading some of the reviews I was expecting delays but instead I got excellent performance.
4). This printer was surprisingly easy to set up. I just followed the instructions and voila! Now I can print wirelessly from anywhere in my home (I work from home so this functionality is extremely important to me and it's flawless).
5). Canon's documentation and setup manual are easy to understand, they were actually written by someone who knew how to write technical documentation. But when I installed the software I chose to not install MP Navigator because I didn't think I needed it. Oops - I had to go back and install it because I couldn't use the scanner wirelessly without it.
6). Perfect print quality, it's exactly what I wanted. B&W documents are sharp, black letters are intense almost as if this is a laser printer. And the color renderings of photos are very good too. Thus far I've only used the default settings and they are perfect.

But this printer eats more ink than anything on the planet. Not because of small cartridges or many copies, but because of the constant automatic cleanings every time you turn it on, and there is no way to shut the cleaning cycles off. I can print maybe 50-100 pages in black and white, and only in black and white, but after so many auto cleanings every cartridge runs out even if you never use color at all. very wastfull.I have contacted Canon for a firmware update or a way to stop unnecessary auto cleanings, but all they say is the usual leave it on, or set it to draft.
Trust me none of this works at all to stop the constant auto cleanings, and since I have talked to them they no longer offer the printer or support for this unit.
We should be able to shut off the cleaning feature on any printer and when our prints look bad we should have control of the cleanings.
this printer cleans every day weather left on or not, and consumes massive amounts of ink.
I just needed to let the buyers know this about this product, because when I read the reviews last year it have the best of all the ones I looked at, and look what happened.
