these suck, unless you're using them consistently the ink dries out and clogs the jets and are impossible to clean no matter what you do making the printer fit for the garbage and if you use a printer consistently you'd be better served than spending 70 on a printer in the first place......otherwise when it did work i was fairly happy with it, but i went through 2 of them in two years becuase if they sit for more than a month or two they will have problems.
as someone who already owns it(got it last year for 75 at B&H) don't but it. Any money saved upfront is immediately lost the moment you have to re-up on ink and realize its the same 75 bucks. Maybe even more.

You can get 5 full sets of ink for $20 on amazon.
I find the use of the term "mobile" in the title very misleading. Mobile implies that the device is mobile and you can take it anywhere and print, i.e. it has an internal power source. the fact that "mobile" devices can print to it is like bragging a plane can use air to fly..
KestrelX
Quite right! And the fact that you still need a wifi connection and a 110v power outlet kind of takes the fun out of things. Certainly a mobile hot-spot or a phone can provide the wifi, but plugs are not synonymous with the term "portable." I see there is mention of bluetooth but I don't see that as a solution. The fact that they don't play nice with Macs or IOS devices means I'll just have to wait for Apple to build a printer into my next iPhone--or watch ;- )

EDIT: Now I see why - looking closer at Canon's MX922 specifications, it specifically calls out a range of OS X versions that ends at 10.9. Disappointing. I run 10.12.6, and my kid runs 10.13 just fine, but you're right - it's kind of a red flag that there may not be longevity in this product for Mac users. ---------- RayF, why do you say they don't play nice? Curious what you are experiencing. I run an all-Apple household, and have no issues printing or scanning from MacOS or iOS (or even the web via Google Cloud Print). I've been surprised by how well the MX92x devices play.
Bought one of these at a steal out a price of about $60-70 and it's been a pretty good printer. I've since replaced it with a tabloid sized laser printer for primary use, but still use this to scan, copy, and for the occasional photo printing task. That said I bought mine about 5 years ago... So I have a hard time believing that it's still a good deal at this price now.
The sole purpose of an ink-jet printer is to sell ink. On the other hand, if you buy a cow instead, you get gallons of more or less, free milk, plenty of cow shit (which arguably has some use), and most likely, some meat down the road. With an ink-jet printer, you end up buying gallons of very expensive ink, and a printer that will very quickly turn to shit and end up in the garbage down the road. Save your money and buy the cow ;- )

Dude, have you ever TRIED goat cheese?
inmytaxi
Feta? Sure on pizza I imagine. How about Pecorino Romano? Been using that in some pasta dishes recently. Imagine my surprise when I learned it's actually SHEEP cheese! Who the hell milks sheep for a living? Evidently somebody does. By the way, it's good (on pasta) and costs plenty. So maybe a goat and some sheep too? And don't call me dude!
I had one of these previous models and it just died on me(won't power on) and looked around to get it replaced soley on the fact I had some of the ink cartridges still and their scanning software worked well, especially combining multiple PDFs into one. Then I looked at it before I bought it. This version is cheaper than the previous version and it feels like it. The ADF and lid are made of flimsy plastic material and the reviews have gone hill since they started making their printers more 'cost effective' aka cheaper. I didn't end of up getting a canon.
Canon dropped all support for the OSX operating system for their Pixma printers. No reason given, not open to reconsider. Don’t buy Canon if you’re a Mac user. You’ll be Sorreeeee!!
jaleonard3
Can you blame them? Continuing ongoing support for a declining OS as far as market share (what's OSX now? below 5% globally?) doesn't make sense.
KestrelX
Oh, you're now you're really sounding like a bitter windoze boy! I remember hearing that same tune back in the early nineties, before Steve Jobs came back--"oh Apple will never replace Microsoft!" Yeah, and then Apple became the largest company in the known universe--not because their OS became more dominant than Microsoft's, but because they create and build stuff people want--lots more than they want somebody else's stuff! Trust me, it's entirely possible to live a full life without ever touching a windoze-based computer, an Android phone, or a Google Chrome anything. And I'm enjoy'n the shit out of that fact, every single day ;- )
Please don't buy this. Just no.
This is a shit printer, won't print or scan even if one ink cartridge is empty. Stops working after a year. I threw this in garbage after a year of using it. Buyer beware. I've wasted time and money on this. Better to use some online printing service.

Just want to point out that this WILL scan if there's no ink. I do it all the time. I use this as my work SCANNER. It's not a good printer (no inkjet is IMHO, ink runs out WAY too fast in all of them) but as a scanner, the thing is perfect. You just hit the button, it scans, and then creates the file that you just drag into your email. I wish they just made it as a scanner. On that note, I ALSO agree with others that this is NOT a deal. I think I got mine for $90 CANADIAN a couple of years ago. Just wait for a good sale if you want this...Black Friday this thing should be $5.
Sorry, this is not a deal. These regularly drop to $50 - especially with Black Friday not far off. Perfectly decent machines - like all inkjets they eat ink but good scanner for the money (which is all I use the two I have for - one of which was $30 from Microcenter last Xmas),
Selling an "old" model printer and then offering the latest model the day after this drop closes seems pretty underhanded and shitty of Massdrop. Can I cancel my order please.
Have the wired version of this for a few years now. The print and scan quality are pretty good once you turn off all the "enhancement" crap. One weird thing though, colour printing, on matte paper at least, uses red for printing black, and that can eat up ink very fast if you're printing some dark pictures to hang around the house.

It's $76.90 on Amazon, unless Im missing something.
Jaysun
Amazon changes their pricing all the time - sometimes multiple times per day. Yesterday it was 68.99, today it is 76.90.
This printer is a PITA if you use DHCP and Google Cloud Print (if you have Chromebooks in your household). My wife has to restart everything daily to get our Chromebooks to see the Pixma. We've had this printer since 2014, when it cost $95 on Amazon. These days it regularly goes for about $75ish.
HexCowboy
I sort of agree with this - though honestly Cloud Print is most of the problem (ironically more so with Chromebook - than the PCs in our household). I see the same behavior with our Dell Laser which is supposed to be CP enabled too. Shame, great concept and brilliant when it is working - which it does for months, then screws itself up and there are weeks of it not working, resharing, restarting, etc - then magically works for months again. It really is mostly CP - or many, many CP enabled printers as I have 7 between office and home, representing 4 manufacturers (Canon, Dell, HP and Samsung).
This printer is $77 from Amazon with free shipping.
Ive had two of these printers, and barring having to void the warranty to clean the heads properly, its a really great all in one printer. Really cant go wrong with this or any of the PIXMAs
BTW- this time its $4 cheaper on Amazon.
I've had this printer for probably 2+ years now, no problems. I buy ink from CompAndSave, far less than OEM and works just fine for regular output and photos too.
$4 more at amazon. Hardly a deal.
Great printer. I've been using this for more than a year. No issue so far.
JWalker16
2 years for me, they go on sale often, got one for $50 at Newegg and HSN had them with paper for $40 awhile back.

Does duplex scanning and printing too.
I have one. Bought it because I needed to scan and make copies (cheaper than FedexKinkos), It's a great printer that does everything: scans, fax, copies, print, wireless, black/white as well as color. It's straight forward to set up and saves money and trips to fedex.
Just wanted to point out that this type of thing exists to those that don't already know: http://www.inkproducts.com/ink-store441/product.php?productid=1057&cat=143&page=1 Do the math, and you'll realize how much you save. They can be annoying to install, but if you're printing large volumes, it's probably worth it.

I buy 30 ink tanks for $15.80 on ebay. 6 sets of ink tanks that work well.
hedgepig
I bought a CISS for a MX926 & MX726 (very similar to this drop model) and they were a PITA messy, pipes got tangled inside, all manner of problems. Far easier and tidier are refillable cartridges. Or buy a printer that is built with a CISS (there's an Epson range).
Pretty great printer; I got my Mom one 3 years ago and it's still going strong despite how much it gets used. I've had great luck using aftermarket ink with this printer; my Mom's has always had the aftermarket ink from Blake Printing Supply on Amazon. I'm not sure how it affects photo quality, but it's been 100% reliable for way less money. Currently a full set of ink from them on Amazon sells for $14.99 with Prime shipping.

I haven't done any photo printing with the Blake ink as of yet; I know for general purpose printing the quality is fine. If I ever do some photo printing on it I'll try and remember to update this post.
tnpeel
I haven't done much photo printing either, and on photo paper it seems to be fine. But the other day I was trying to print out large orange letters on plain paper and they came out mustard yellow instead. Not sure if that's the ink I'm using or the printer.
Have one of these... This is an awesome printer for the cash. Recommended!
This is one of the highest Color DPI Photo machines on the lower cost market, but the MSRP is a bit disingenuous. Various retail outlets have carried this machine kept at $99 for a few years running now, it's not new anymore, and while $79 is still great for this machine, and cheaper than you'd find at Retail... it's not the grand $100 discount you'd find. For color print's it's really a terribly expensive machine to run, but it's going to give you some of the best photographs for a machine under $500.
MSRP
I have this model. It's a fine copier/printer. The duplex document feeder is convenient. AirPrint setup was painless, Google Cloud Print was a little more involved, but both features are worth setting up if you have devices that need them.
Ink tanks are not cheap (surprise!) and the printer seems to slurp it up. I always buy the XL and XXL tanks, under the assumption that I'm getting more ink per $. If not, at least I'm not changing tanks as often as I would be with the regular size tanks.
The only annoying thing about this printer is it wants to tell you that you had a power outage, and won't let you print anything until you acknowledge its status message.
I hope this is a successful drop, and I hope MassDrop decides to start offering ink tank drops. I would buy tanks in bulk if I could save some serious money on them.

I have not worked retail in about a year so I dont remember the exact numbers, but the big maxify had 25% smaller carts than the hp did and they were less common so the mark up was higher. the little maxify was a nice idea but poor form factor since it had the print mechanism from the larger machine and was cheaper to run than the 6000 series HP and they dont have the paper feed problems that series always does when they are not leaning back.

I've had this model for a couple of years myself. I don't use it for photo printing (I have the Canon Pro-100 for that) but for basic printing, scanning and faxing, it works great. Prior to that I've had Epson printers which for the Colorado dry climate would often have issues with the heads clogging and I couldn't get them unclogged. The scanning software for allowing scanning directly to the PC is pretty basic, but gets the job done. I am able to scan to my Mac and also print fine from the Mac as well. Had no issues installing the Canon software on it, though I did that a few years back. Pros:
  • it just works. Never had issues with it outside of the occasional paper jam
  • Built-in Fax which works with my Comcast basic voice line.
  • Third-party ink works well with it, bringing down the printing costs a bit
  • Google Cloud Print, though I had to add a static DHCP entry in my router
Cons:
  • Clunky software for scanning and such.
  • Not super fast in printing (but not dog slow either)
  • Printer driver for some reason likes to sometimes default to printing 4x6 instead of Letter
