This is the second Canon printer I have owned & have found them to be of the best quality printer overall and affordable ink cartridges. Performance This printer works very good...it prints fast & very good quality. Prints in either black & color. Copy Quality Very good quality for quality & will print in my choice of either black ink or color ink. Ink/Paper Use Ink is relatively cheap compared to other printer ink. Ease of Use So easy to use...prints quickly too compared to other printers I've had. Durability Only had this printer for 2 months but has performed very well in all areas of a printer. Design It's a very attractive printer with a good design.
