I had to replace another Canon all-in-one - a Pixma MX850 which I loved. After four years it needed replacement, and Canon recommended the 882 but didn't have any in stock so the next item they recommended was this 512. The packaging and set-up instructions were excellent, and the quality of the unit is much better than other competitive units available. I am pleased with all funtions of the unit however it is somewhat noisy during operations, what with the clickety-clack of the machine. That not withstanding, it is a great all-in-one machine.

I purchased this printer to replace a prior cannon printer (MP620). After opening the package and doing the test prints, I decided to return it because of the following: 1) the paper tray must be opened if there is paper in the docking station (MP620 had a concealed paper tray); 2) you have to move three levers/slides to ensure that your printed paper does not fall to the floor. This is the main reason why I am returning this product. The Canon looks so nice, but I could not imagine having to move three separate things in order to prevent printed paper from falling on the floor. Canon clearly made this product to appease people who have a more patience than myself. JRM

Quality output, however ...


from Kansas City, MO, United States

My review is a question - I had frequent issues with an "out of paper" error. Does anyone else have a paper path on the underside held in place with duct tape? I have to replace the tape frequently, especially after printing photos. Maybe I'll try velcro strips............




from Dover, DE

Received this printer from a vendor as a retirement gift 2 years ago. I am very happy with the Canon MX512. The cartridges (I do use only Canon) last through a full ream of paper. I occasionally print photos on 4x6 glossy stock and I have excellent results. Used commercial Canon laser printers where I worked before retiring which is why I wanted to stay with Canon.


Pixma MX512, a printer for lying down and avoiding


from British Columbia

The cartridges for this printer cost more than I paid for it. The cartridges that came with the printer are only good for a few pages. The new higher capacity cartridges, which incidentally look identical to the low-capacity ones, are not recognized by the printer, and I have now wasted a day of my time "trying things." Trying things means turning the printer off, waiting 10-minutes to 2-hours, and turning it back on. Repeat the procedure with the cartridges removed. How did this start? It started because the power failed in my office, and when power returned, everything in the office including other printers and computers plugged into the same outlet came back to life without incident, except for the Canon MX512. So without touching the printer, it just stops working? This seems to stem from Canon wanting to prevent users from using any but Canon branded cartridges, as it has to do with reading the ID information now built into said cartridges. Why is this required? Obviously it is NOT required for a user. It benefits Canon only, at the expense of its customers. I will fill my printing and scanning requirements elsewhere.


Good Product!!!


from Tampa, FL

This printer has worked perfectly for me. I use the print function in the wireless mode, which allows printing from laptops, smartphones and tablets. For the price I think it is a fantastic value. I have also faxed documents and used the copy function. For me it has performed as well as some previously more expensive printers that I have owned.


Awesome purchace


from Wichita, KS

Love this printer! This has saved my professional life more than once!


Ink Cartridges


from Indianapolis, IN

The printer works fine, but be aware that 210/211 ink cartridge boxes with a Canon label pasted on indicating they work in the MX512 is wrong.

          Great for the first few months but print quality dropped after about 6 months and it's totally stopped working after less than a year

            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.
