5-0 out of 5 stars Some points not covered by others.
Let me start by saying my previous printer was an HP 540 bought ten years ago and I do not own a digital camera nor a scanner.

So why did I buy it? Because of the good reviews I have seen for the Pixma family, because people complaining about how the new HP printer family software installation is a bear, and complaints about Epson print heads clog if not used both here and on usenet. I bought it for home, and I have only needed to fax about twice in the last ten years, but I (we?) often need to copy, and I wanted a color printer, separate print cartridges, two paper trays. I hemmed and hawed and decided to pay the extra to get the MP760 features over the sheet feeder of the MP750. A digital camera will probably be next electronics purchase.

First some notes
- Another website said this printer has a parallel port. It does not. Not a big deal.
- It works over USB 1.1. Not as fast, but if you are like me and would rather put the money for a USB 2.0 card into a new PC, you are not out of luck. You do need a USB OS. I am using XP Pro.
- You do not need the PC turned on to copy or print pictures from memory cards OR from negatives or slides! But, when printing from negatives it will NOT let you print to plain paper. I don't know about scanning then printing, I would have to try it out.
- The slide and negative holders are stored in the underside of the scanner lid. When you unsnap this carrier it exposes a white strip that appears to be a light source for scanning negatives or slides.
- The memory slots come up as removable disk drive under XP, one does not have to use them for just digital picture files. Its a nice feature for me, since my home computer's USB slots are in the back and both are used. I have a SanDisk MobileMate SD to USB converter, I can put files on it at work, then take the memory out and upload with the MP760.
- No thick all encompassing manual, but rather printed quick start guides and the full manuals installed in HTML format on your PC.
- Two TWAIN drivers are installed. One limits you to 600 DPI when scanning. Need to be scanning negatives or slides to get to 2400 DPI (someone correct me if I am wrong).
- Two paper trays - one is a cassette down at the very bottom, the other is an automatic sheet feeder from the rear.

Random blathering opinions ---
- The print quality is great, but I don't have alot to compare it to.
- Reasonably quiet. Other manf's models made beeps. I don't want to wake up the kids when printing at night.
- Big. And you need even more room with the sheet feeder in the rear and the door to open in the front for finished prints to come out.
- I would rather have the manuals in PDF over HTML.
- Getting at and installing the print head and cartridges is harder than the Deskjet 540. There is some sort of prop rod, that needs to be unlatched to get it back down, and two doors in front of the print cartridges.
- A consumer magazine states that each photo print costs about $0.85 on an MP780, and at the store near me its $0.29 for digital prints. But then again I can make a print right NOW if I wanted to.
- Manual says you should not to just drop the power to it, you have to press the ON/OFF button and wait. Annoying, and what happens if the power goes out? What about when it is in sleep mode? Would be nice if the PC powers down it assumes it should power down, or at least be an option.

I can personally vouch that it copies color or grayscale, scans with PC color or grayscale, prints directly from film negative to photo paper, prints from PC, and no software problems thus far. Everything else I either can't test it (like the PictBridge) or have not had the time.

Overall, I'm glad I waited this long to buy an MFC and I'm glad I waited a bit longer for the MP760.

5-0 out of 5 stars Does itfax?
Could any one please tell me if this machine does scan to fax??? I have fax program in my XP.There were so many good reviews about this AIO, so it is hard to let go, but I need to use fax at least once a week.I have also considered MP780, but it doesn't come with the negative slide,thanks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Which Canon Multifunction is right for you?
First off, if you're in the market for a printer, you can't go wrong with a Canon.Canon printers consistently beat out the competition in independent tests for print quality.Their items are elegant, well designed, and most importantly, ink is affordable.

We all know the razor and blade scheme: sell the printer below cost and make it up with pricey cartridges.Canon, however, saves you a lot of money by including the print head with the printer and not on each cartridge.Because of this, genuine Canon cartridges can be had for around $12, while 3rd party cartridges, which many claim work just as well, can be found for as low as $2.

If you've already decided on a Canon multifunction, lets see which model is right for you.Canon's current market list is as follows:

MP130 - New model, and the most affordable yet.
Copy/Print/Scan
18ppm black, 13ppm color
2 ink tanks
No auto sheet feeder!
Card slots

MP390 - Has a fax, About half the cost of the MP7xx's.
Copy/Print/SCan/Fax
18ppm black, 12 ppm color
2 ink tanks
card slots

MP750 - Older model - exactly the same as mp780 but no fax.
Copy/Print/Scan
25ppm black, 17 ppm color
5 ink tanks
Built in Duplexing

MP760 - New Model - geared towards photo enthusiasts.
Copy/Print/Scan + Special Photo Features
25ppm black, 17 ppm color
5 ink tanks
No auto sheet feeder!
Built in Duplexing
*Unique photo features:
2.5 inch lcd screen
Built in film adapter for 35mm slides or negatives
can print directly from negatives
Card slots

MP780 - Does it all except for the mp760 photo features.
Copy/Print/Scan/Fax
25ppm black, 17 ppm color
5 ink tanks
Built in Duplexing

Now, let's look more closely at some key differences between these models:

*Fax: The first thing you should do is decide if you need a fax or not. If you do, you should choose between the MP780 or the MP390.If not, don't rule those two out just yet, they may have have other features you can't live without.

*Note: There is NO auto fax/telephone switching on these models if you wish to use the same line for faxes and voice calls.

*Number of ink tanks: The next important thing you should look at is whether you want to be able to replace each color individually or not.The MP750, MP760 and MP780 all have 5 individual ink tanks (photo black, black, cyan, yellow, magenta), while the MP130 and MP390 have only 2 (black and tricolor).The cost of each cartridge is about the same, but you will waste some leftover ink by throwing out the MP130 or MP390's color cartridge when just one color runs out.

*Photo printing: If you're planning on printing a lot of photos, you should probably go with an mp7xx.These have a superior print head, as well as the 5 separate ink tanks.The MP760 is especially noteable with all the features Canon has added specifically for photos.These come at a price however, as the MP760 does not share the auto sheet feeder of its MP750 and MP780 cousins, or the fax of the 780.

*However - If you plan on printing directly from memory cards, beware!The mp750 and mp780 do not have card slots!The 2 cheaper models and the mp760 do.

*Auto sheet feeder: The mp130 and mp760 do NOT have an auto sheet feeder.All 3 of the others do.An auto sheet feeder is very useful when doing a lot of scanning or faxing.

*Duplexing: The mp7xx models each have built in duplexing.

*Size: The mp7xx models weigh around 30 pounds and are quite big.The MP390 is a smaller, and weighs 18 pounds.The mp130 has a tiny footprint for a multifunction printer, and weighs 14 pounds.

Some features that all of Canon's current MFPs share:

*Copying: Each of these models has a copy function, and all have the same resolution (600x600 black, 1200x1200 color).
*USB 2.0 connection
*Pictbridge direct photo printing support
*All 5 models are great looking and will complement almost any decor.

My recommendations:

If you want a great price on an excellent printer and don't need a fax: MP130

If price is an issue but you still need a fax: MP390

If you can afford an MP700 series and don't need a fax, card slots, or the MP760's photo features: MP750

If you need its exclusive photo features (but no fax or auto sheet feeder): MP760

If you can afford an MP700 series and need a fax (but no card slots and none of the MP760s photo features): MP780

5-0 out of 5 stars You will be glad you bought it
I have had this printer for a couple of weeks and it does everything Canon's description says and it does it well.The included software gives you options for printing photos and scanning that range from fully automatic (simple) to using wizards (need to make some decisions) to full control of everything (got to read the manual).Pictures come out looking great and text is sharp.It has two paper sources so that you can switch between different papers without having to fumble with a paper tray, built in two-sided paper printing (duplexing) and a real plus, it has a built-in memory card reader so you can print directly or easily and quickly transfer info. to your computer from most any kind of memory card.

The only problem I have had, and that you may also have, has somthing to do with how the printer uses my computer's USB2 ports.I have a laser printer connected to one of these ports and if it and the Canon are both connected when I boot up the computer, the computer's USB controller experiences some kind of conflict between these printing devices and resolves the conflict by disabling some of the Canon's functions.I called Canon's tech. support, which, by the way, is free during your warranty year. After going through a few prompts I was quickly connected with a support person (not outsourced!) who was knowledgeable and patiently helped me troubleshoot the problem.Tech talk: something to do with computer bios, the USB controller and how the Canon is programmed to use the USB hub.In any case, he said I would have to call my computer maker for help in changing computer codes.My quick, if not elegant solution, was to unplug the laser printer from the USB until boot up was complete and then plug it back in.Problem solved!This didn't work if I unplugged the Canon and instead left the laser printer connected during boot up.Hope this helps.

Bottom line...You won't go wrong if you get this printer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very impressed
So far, so very very good.This printer creates great photos on glossy paper and does very well with black tiny text on injet paper.But most of all, I'm impressed with its speed.It's the fastest printer I've ever owned (maybe that says more about me than the printer) so I'm extremely happy.

The only issue I have with this printer is that its front buttons (copy, scan, film, photo) do not work with my Macintosh.I use system 10.3.8 and pressing the buttons does *nothing*. However, everything works if you use the included (excellent) software.If I'm looking for other things to complain about, I'd say it's a bit heavy & large.It woudn't fit in the cabinet where my old printer did. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars really disappointing
bad print quantity, noisy, wierd hanlding procedures .... Unless you know how to set the TX speed to 9600, you never be able to send fax to those who use old fax machines. The stupid dial delay will cut all voice menu when you call some automatted service. So many warning noises, so many failures ... We hope it can save us some ink cost before we throw it away. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars We like this machine!
This fax machine was picked because we needed a replacement for our dying Xerox. I am very happy with Canon cameras, so I reasoned that I would also like their electronic equipment. I could have been very wrong with this assumption, but we are very pleased with what we purchased. The installation and setup were very simple and easy to follow. The manual is clear, concise and helpful. The copy quality of incoming faxes is very good. Also, the size is perfect since our home office has limited space available to us. The only small drawback is that there is no
place to put information in regard to speed dial numbers. We solved this by typing up our own "cheat sheet" and taping it to the machine. Overall, I would highly recommend this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Where is the waste paper basket?
Having had a $600 dollar machine and going to this Canon copier was a horrible experience. Going through the functions was a bad experience, the product was difficult to work and I am an electrical engineer. I read from someone else that you will go through print cartridges like toilet paper, oh my god, he was right.

Now if I use my laser paper to print a fax that is two pages forget about trying to get it through the fax, not a chance. One page is ok, but if I do two pages I must copy it in my copier that uses thinner paper.

When I am finally ready to purchase a REAL fax I will give this machine to someone I hate. Whoever gave this four stars must not use it for business...

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great!
We like this machine! and use it in our church/school office. One touch receiving for incoming faxes on our phone line. Depending on your usage, the black ink cartridge is small but we used ours for about 3 months before it ran out. (a larger black cartridge is available, if you don't use color).

Set up took a bit of time but there are detailed instructions. The manual is very good.

4-0 out of 5 stars I like it
I've had this for a few months and use it for occasional FAXing. I decided to pay the extra money to get an inkjet instead of the cheaper thermal printers, mainly because I read that thermal cartridges don't last long and replacements are expensive (i.e. you get the machine cheaper up front, but over the long term it costs more). Since the B740 uses the same ink wells as some of Canon's bubble printers, I also figured it'd be easier to get replacement ink wells a few years down the road.

The machine does what it's supposed to do and I've been happy with it so far. Setup was a slight pain, although a call to Canon support took care of that. Overall the manual is good. Note that the machine has a copy mode which is useful for the occasional copy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good FAX, too little ink
I've been using this fax machine for three months. It performs well, but the black cartridge holds too little ink. ... Read more
