The Canon Pixma MP470 is an all-in-one printer that is almost ridiculously easy to use. The hook-up took me only minutes to do and once the software was installed I was using it right away. I love the scanner / copier feature. This reduces the Catholic guilt that used to kick in whenever I would take stuff to work with me that I needed to copy. Now I can do it all at home and save time at confession. :-) One of the best features is the LCD screen that flips up and pretty much just walks you right through whatever it is that you need to do with the printer. The instructions are clear and step-by-step. It's virtually impossible to goof it up if you can read. The only issue that I've had with this printer, and it's really more of an annoyance than an issue, is that about a month after buying it the printer started making sound during printing like the printer head was catching on the edge of the paper as it went back and forth. It still prints just fine, it just makes this sound that makes me think I'm going to get a messed up copy - but so far they always come out just fine. Overall, a very good value. I would recommend this to anyone.
