It takes more than 5 steps to print the fax and delete it (menu, scroll to memory item, ok, scroll to print, OK document, scroll to print all pages, ok, menu to go up, scroll to delete, ok to delete, ok to delete, menu to get out).
Worse, after a couple of these, the memory is mixed up. So, when you want to send a Fax, it will say "memory full" even though the memory is empty. You then have to power cycle the printer (hold down on/off for 1 second, wait 10 seconds, power on, wait for it to get ready (another 10-20 seconds).
This means you either have to waste ink by throwing out cartridges before they are empty, or you have to deal with this mess. Canon says there is no workaround or fix for this.
There are 3 other problems with copying you should know before you buy (I wish I did):
1. You cannot use the Auto Document Feeder (sheet feeder) when copying or scanning with any setting in auto (exposure, size, etc). It does not make any of that clear, so if you find it refuses the auto doc feeder, reset everything to manual :-(
2. Black duplex printing uses color cartridges for one of the sides, so uses the more expensive ink. That is, it does not use the blank ink for both sides.
3. Copying speeds are much slower than the blurb implies. If you make 10 copies of one page, it is as fast as they say. If you copy multiple pages, each one takes much much longer, does the scan, and then does the print. Also, if any setting is in auto mode, it does a two pass scan (one to check the page), and that takes a really long time.
Anyway, back to this fantastic AIO. This unit was super easy to setup and caused no issues with my Windows XP system at all - I didn't even have to reboot! I thought for sure with the tons of equipment I already have installed that it would screw up something, but it was no problem at all. The controls are easy to understand and you could probably figure out how to do everything with it without even picking up the manual. The scan quality is perfect for a home business like mine and I was quite surprised that it prints photos just as good as my Epson high level photo printer. And it prints quiet and fast. I have not used it to fax yet, but I fax through my computer anyway so I can save everything on disk, so I won't use this feature much. The duplex printing and copying really does work great, but for scanning you have to put the pages in twice for duplex - no biggee for me, but it might matter to someone who scans duplex a whole bunch.
The software that came with it was great too; nice little photo printing package that REALLY fixes red eye, and has some nice print layouts. As an amateur photographer, I really wanted a unit that could print a decent photo, and this unit didn't dissapoint me (and I'm kinda picky about photo quality).
Only a couple words of concern to anyone buying this - anything put in the paper cassette will be printed on the "down" side - something I found out the hard way after printing on the wrong side of photo paper. It would have been nice if they labeled the tray with that info, but it's a small freckle on an otherwise perfect unit.
So far I have been playing with this for a few hours and have tried almost all the functions except faxing. Everything is working great with it. I can't believe I am actually going to be able to replace my office inkjet, my photo printer, and my scanner with this, but I really can. And I got the ADF scanning and color copying capabilities I needed for my home business on top of that. And all for less than I paid for either of my old printers or scanner individually. Thank you Canon! You just made my desktop a whole lot more spacious.
Let me start out by saying that the support Canon provides is EXCELLENT. I get emails returned within hours of sending them.
Here are some things I like about the MP530:
* It's very easy to use. There are a minimum number of button pushes to do even complex stuff, like FAX settings. The menus are intuitive. The manual is clearly written
* Color on glossy paper is photo-quality. If you print color on standard paper, you need to set the quality to highest or you will get some lines.
* You can over-ride the ink-tank empty message. Non-Canon ink works fine if you can get the ink safely into the tanks (see below). You can buy non-chipped generic tanks and just move the little chip over from the Cannon tank.
* You can send FAXs from other networked computers (kewl!).
Stuff that's a pain:
* Ink. In order to fill the Canon tanks, you have to use a special tool the ink company will send you to remove a little plastic ball which is on the top of the tank under the label. It's doable and actually not difficult ONCE you get the hang of it. Once it is out you pray the rubber stopper seals properly or the tank will leak. If the stopper holds, which 4 out of five of mine did, you're golden from then on. This whole process is not for the faint-of-heart. Another option is to buy either chipped or non-chipped tanks. Non-chipped tanks (half the cost) require a chip transplant which is not hard to do. Occasional (maybe once a month) error messages saying your tanks may be empty. Not a big deal. Of course you could make Canon happy by simply buying their ink, but what fun is that?
* The scanner software is a bit clunky and stupid. I'm not sure what a serious scanning person would do. Buy alternative software? I don't mind it though.
Over-all a damn fine printer!!! It copies great, scans great, prints great and FAXs great.
