I love the wireless printing

It is great for home usage it's easy hookup just read the directions.The best part is it's wireless and easy to use.The only thing I noticed is it's a little noisy when in use.I think the ink cartridges are a little bit expensive.I haven't found a cheap ink cartridge yet .


Most Liked Negative Review


Poor instructions

I have been trying off and on for weeks to get my printer to connect to my home network so that I may AirPrint, after the installation of a new router - all efforts to no avail. Your instructions are incomplete and ineffective. I will never purchase Canon again.

Software of the map


from Undisclosed

You see the box says it has WIFI, that why you buy it. Convenient not to have it take space on my desk, I will not be using it every day. Canon however think that is why you buy a printer. The software is heavy and want to put itself on the desktop with "amazing" features i do not care about. I just want to print a picture or an email. But the hardest part is to set up the WIFI. Even if you get it to work, you some times have to repeat the process because it is to hard to the printer to store the information.


Absolutely No Problem


from Phoenix, AZ

I bought this printer when I went back to university to get my master's degree because of it's duplex printing capability and reasonable price. It went the long haul with me, and believe me when I say I printed out every research article for every class I took. Never really used it for printing pictures but one the rare occasion that I did, they were very nice. Totally happy with this product!


Not recomended


from Undisclosed

When the cartridge is refiled, sometimes the printer will not recognize new ink, must be some kind os software that detect specific cartiges and prevents from numerous uses.


Bad Choice


from Ohio

Hooked up to wifi worked ok for over a year suddenly it won't print from computer but will still scan.Will not reconnect just says "printer not responding" also will not print unless you have both color and black ink won't print just black also the ink is costly.No place to insert an sd card to print from camera you have to insert the card into your modem but that won't work now since it stopped printing from the computer.


Canon PXMIA WI-FI sucks


from California

I love the printer but using it WI-FI connected is a pain. I can not disable the auto power off so every time I try to use it I have to go turn it on. If another device has used it I can not connect with different device unless I power cycle the printer or the WI-FI..




from Massachussets

The worse printer I ever had. dont buy it The printer print with doble letter, I couldnt fix it

Waste of $$


from Ohio

Bought this 2 years ago and have had nothing but problems with it. It is supposed to be wireless but must use a cord to use. I can mail something / be recieved faster then it can print. I have installed it 3 times and still tells me there is an error. Next time I will do my homework before my next printer purchase!

Wish I could print...


from Undisclosed

I have had this printer for 1 miserable year I don't know why this was even invented because it usually takes about an hour to get it to print and then once it does it INHALES the most expensive ink! The only reason I am back at this sight today(1 year later) is because...IT WILL NOT PRINT AGAIN! Canon- you let me down and wasted money I don't have to waste.




from Ohio

Easy to use, easy on color ink, Other than one time paper feed issue no problems. I use it both usb and wireless with no issues


Poor quality, will not last long


from Undisclosed

It worked fine for about a year and one day, I experienced the alighment issue. I did a trouble shoot according to the manual but the print quality remained blurry. I was so frustrated and had to buy a new printer (non Canon). The sales guy at the store told me that it's a common issue with Canon printers.
