    In late April 2012, I bought my family's first Canon printer, the PIXMA MG 3120. I was impressed with its quality, functionality and reliability, I decided to upgrade to the Canon MX 432. this printer too meet and exceeded my expectations. When I brought the printer home, I asked my twelve-year-old son to assemble the printer while I was running some errands. When I got home, he moved the Canon MG 3120 and set it up on his computer and setup the printer's Wi-Fi to ube used with a laptop both my wife and he used, and he assembled and configured the MX 432 on the computer I use. After setting up the printers, he ran tests to be sure both printers worked, which both did. My son's ability to setup the Canon MX 432 illustrated how easy it is to setup the printer to get it ready to use. Many of the negative comments I read regarding performance issues of Canon printers is based on inadequate thought and unrealistic expectations of the tasks the individuals had for these printers. The newer Canon printers do a better job printing documents or photographs than printers manufactured a few years ago. A few Canon users complained that their printers were too noisy. My experience with the Canon printers has been that they are quieter than most of the printers I used in the past. However, if the sound of the printer is annoying, Canon provides a setting on this, and other of its printers, to reduce noise levels. Another common complaint by some users of Canon printer is that they are unable to print many images or photographs. Recently, I used three color cartages and printed about three hundred 4" x 6" and a few 8.5" x 11" prints. Normally, I would not do this, but I created a special collection of images and photographs to show the quality and versatility the Canon printer to print high quality images and photographs. A person can set the printer to fast print documents, images and photographs. However, if you use the fast print function, the quality of the print is not going to be crisp and clear. It is worth keeping in mind, that inkjet printers are notorious for using large quantities of ink to produce images and photographs. Therefore, if a person is going to print large quantities of photographs, skip this printer, and look for a printer that is designed to print images and photographs. If a person is going to use this printer, or any of the other printers not designed to print images and photographs, the quantity of images or photographs are going to be limited and pricy for each cartage used. The MX 432, as stated above, prints great looking images and photographs; however, its primary use is to print documents, HTML, MHTML and Text pages. This printer is best suited for a small home-office, a small office, a student or a family. Please note that this printer is Wi-Fi compatible.

    Worst Printer Ever

    By SoonerKate

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Canon PIXMA Wireless Inkjet Office All-In-One Printer:

    I've had this printer over a year and I have never once been able to wirelessly print with it... which is the ONLY reason I bought the thing in the first place. We have a small house with no good space for a printer other than on a top of a chest of drawers. So instead of being able to sit at a desk to print, I have to drag a chair over, plug the computer in, and wait for it to print. Not only that, but the ONLY other function I need... scanning multiple documents DOES NOT WORK. So here I am, for I don't know what time... re-downloading drivers in hopes that maybe, JUST MAYBE after all this, it will do half of what I need it to do... which is only about 25% of what the thing is suppose to be able to do in the first place. Run away, run far away.

            This is one of the worst machines I've ever had. The instructive pictures do not correspond to the actual dimensions of the product; there is no way to clear a paper jamb because there are no releases, there is no access to the jamming process; the ports don't respond well and change instructions to the print software. I'll NEVER buy your product, again

              I have recently switched to wireless in the house for esthetic reasons. This printer should have no problem dealing with this and yet I have had to manually imput through the device settings the password for the wireless on a daily basis. Not only that , but, the printer has to go through the complete set-up routine to find the signal.DAILY! OMG have you any idea how frustrating that is??? Definitely will never buy another Canon product!

                    I got this printer for Christmas 2012. It worked good until about a month or so ago. I went to scan something for school, and the printer wouldn't scan. There was a pop up saying there was a document in ADF. I swear to you, there was no document in the entire printer. I am not allowed to do anything on the printer until this alert is gone.

                    First off this printer is hard to set up. I purchased this last year in December. I use this printer minimally, about 20 pages per month. Well three months later this piece of garbage is jamming paper. I have tried to fix it and it continues to do this. The memory also won't clear and it keeps telling me I have a paper jam. DO NOT BUY THIS. Price was cheap but it just reminds me that you get what you pay for

                        This product does not deliver a quality product. The lines of the document are not even, squibbly lines. Access to remove paper jam is the "pitts". Once paper jam is removed the product doesn't feed paper properly and the print is not clear.
