Works great for Mac and PC

By 

from Santa Ana, CA

Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Office All-in-One Printer MX860:

I got this recently for a great price and was excited to set it up. Initially this printer has a HUGE footprint. Setting up was not too bad but took some time to get it to work correctly with both the Mac and PC side. It was a little frustrating because sometimes it would not actually connect to the network I set up in my home. After looking up this problem, I found others were experiencing the same thing. So as recommended, I downloaded the latest drivers, uninstalled everything, and reinstalled. It works great now.

I love how you can print double sided, scan via the feeder or flat bed and be able to print until the ink cartridge is completely empty. Even though it says no ink, you can still print. No ink wasted here.

much better than hp

By 

from Chesapeake, VA

Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Office All-in-One Printer MX860:

HP seems to be one of the top leaders in home printing but in my opinion they are no cannon. I have loved this printer and have had no problem at all with it. The printing is clear and the cartrages can be purchased very inexpensive on amazon. I highly recommend it. The only challenge I have had was with the wireless printing.

Best All-In-One InkJet I've ever had

By 

from Des Moines, IA

Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Office All-in-One Printer MX860:

I purchased the Canon MX860 after my old Dell all-in-one scanned and printed it's last paper of its life.  Its massive size was one of the first things I noticed about this grey beast.  Even though the Canon MX860 is large, it's a pretty nice looking and modern all-in-one.  I was very happy with how easily it was able to connect with my wireless network.  It was also very nice how it had a USB and flash memory port directly on the printer.  The scan quality seemed excellent along witht he print quality.  My one complaint about the Canon MX860 is the ability to for the software associated with it to work on a 64 Bit system.  The reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is due to the software that comes with it.  I am able to print just fine to the Canon Mx860 through my wireless network, but I am unable to scan and send the images directly to my computer over my network due to the software issues with 64 Bit systems.  This is the one downside to this device.  Hopefully they will soon release a patch for this.  I would recommend this all-in-one for anyone who doesn't have a 64 bit system.

very fast!

By 

from Gold Canyon, AZ

Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Office All-in-One Printer MX860:

This is a great all-in-one printer, and very fast printing. I have been very happy with it since I got it, and have yet to explore all its functionalities. This is an expensive printer however, I wouldn't recommend it if you don't have the need to use it all the time. As the name suggests, it can copy, print, and fax. It can be hooked up wirelessly, but does not support wireless-N. All my windows 7 machines were able to recognize this printer right away, no need to use the driver from the cd or web. If you need more functionalities, like testing the printer, copy to desktop etc, you'll need the driver software from canon. It has a LCD screen on the printer, which isn't that much helpful since it's pretty small, but it lets you see the pictures on a usb and shows you what it's printing. This is a big printer however so make sure you have room for it. I haven't changed my cartridges yet so don't know how much that would cost. Overall I have been happy with it, if you need something that does all!

great wifi printer

By 

from Stone Mountain, GA

Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Office All-in-One Printer MX860:

our existing hp inkjet printer had started printing badly - not due to ink issues but because our son decided the printer needed crackers!

we found this printer at office depot at a really good price around thanksgiving last year.  it had great reviews, was a canon and best of all had wireless capability.  i had been looking for a wireless option since we have 2 desktops and one laptop all of which we like to print from. 

the canon mx860 all-in-one inkjet printer was very easy to connect up and install.  the instructions were very clear, even given i work in the IT industry.  i then installed the driver on our other 2 computers and all were able to successfully print.  the wifi also gave us the ability to locate the printer in an areas where our son could not access it. 

since then it has performed great.  we have scanned items, and printed photos and everything has worked as advertised.

The Canon MX860 is a great all-in-one printer.

By 

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Office All-in-One Printer MX860:

The Canon MX860 is a color inkjet all-in-one printer.  I've never had an all-in-one printer before, but now that I do, I wouldn't be able to survive without it.  This printer not only provides excellent quality prints in color or black-and-white, but it also has the capability to act as a fax, scanner, and copier.

The MX860 has full wireless capability and a built-in print server.  That means that it can stand completely alone or it can be wired to your router in order to communicate through wi-fi with your laptop.

The print quality is excellent.  I've used it to print both text, graphics, and photos.  The resolution is relatively high and the color balance produces vivid prints.  The printer can also print in duplex automatically in order to save paper and hassle.

As scanner, the MX860 offers convenient front panel ports for USB drives and SD cards.  Of course, you can also send the scanned file directly to your computer's hard drive via wi-fi.  The scanner works very quickly and the finished file can be saved in either .pdf or.jpg formats for flexibility.

The printer has a display screen with an easy-fo-follow interface for setting up faxes, scans and copies.  Even those that aren't very tech savy should be able to easily set up and operate this printer.

On the downside, the print cartridges don't seem to last very long and replacing them is not cheap.  The printer also has a pretty big footprint so be prepared to provide enough space for it.

Overall, the Canon MX860 a great printer.  I am very happy with this purchase and it's made my home office capabilities so much more extensive.

Canon MX860 is great!

By 

from Ann Arbor, MI

Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Office All-in-One Printer MX860:

As an at-home printer, the Canon MX860 does a great job. I've had this printer for a year now and I've never had the printer jam. It prints clearly and is smart about pulling only one piece of paper at a time. I've used this to print my baby announcements and envelopes with no problem. I've scanned, copied, and utilized the wireless features. LOVE IT! Everything it does it terrific and I love the duplex copying and printing. That being said, there were some cons as well. 1) It took me FOREVER to get it set up. The directions were very confusing and ultimately I ended up completely screwing up my wireless router so that it no longer worked. Once I bought a new wireless router, it was okay. I'm not sure whether my old router was not capable of supporting it, but regardless the directions were confusing. 2) This wastes too much ink. I keep my printer default on black/white, but it still has managed to drain ALL of the colored ink. There was no way to prevent it from using the colored ink. Now that the color is completed depleted, I have now figured out how to keep printing from the black ink without replacing the colored ink. It was a waste of some good colored ink. :( Overall, I do love my printer and it's ease of use.

Superior

By 

from Tidioute, PA

Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Office All-in-One Printer MX860:

I bought this Canon model after my Lexmark Inkjet refused to feed paper through anymore.  I wanted something smaller for our small business that included everything (fax, printer, scan, copier).  I settled on this one after hearing some good reviews about it.  It was the best decision by way of 4-in-one printers. 

This printer is reliable and does and incredible job with every day printing as well as picture printing.  Never a problem with scanning and other than reading the directions to help with connecting wirelessly, I didn't need the instructions to figure out how to run any programs.  The installation process is a snap.

If you are a big business, I do not recommend it.  It tends to be on the slow side and a little noisy.  This machine can be made to be quieter, however, that slows down the "warming up" process as a result.  I do not require multiple copies of large documents to be printed off, therefore this printer does the job consistently.

Canon PIXMA MX860 All-In-One InkJet Printer is simply amazing!!

By 

from Lebanon, OR

Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Office All-in-One Printer MX860:

After our last printer got ruined by our cat playing with a toy that it had lodged inside where the ink was we decided to find one that was not only cat proof, but user friendly. This was very easy to install we did the wireless install instead of the cable install. We love the idea that it has everything we need in one nice handy package. I have found that the print quality is great for printing photos of my grand-kids and sent them to my father, who thought the photos were printed in photo lab. You can also use a memorycard to print from if you want, that is pretty handy I think.The ink is in individual tanks, so if one color runs out you only have to purchase that one color. So that has already saved me some money on the ink. We have only used the scanner a couple times and it is more than adequate for our use. The fax is very easy to use. I would highly reccomend this great all in one printer!

Good, Reliable Printer (for the most part)

By 

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Office All-in-One Printer MX860:

I bought this printer for general use at home.  I didn't need it to print out anything with professional quality or anything.  One of the reasons I picked this printer is because it was an all in one printer.  It has a fax, scanner and port for your camera storage to download photos. 

The fax has worked perfectly and the scanner has decent quality.  My only complaint has to do with the ink.  Number one, it is hard for me to find a place that will do Canon ink refills as I do not want to spend the money to buy brand new ink cartridges every time.  Also, periodically you must clean the area where you put the cartridges because it gets clogged and then the printer won't recognize it.

Overall, this printer is not GREAT at one thing, it is good at many things which is what I was looking for so it fit the bill. I have had it one year so far and it seems as though it could last another year.
