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.

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.

Worst Printer EVER!


from South Florida

I have had this printer for a little over 2 years. I should have taken it back after I purchased when I found out the LED screen is not lit up so you can not see the info displayed. I keep a flashlight by the printer for this reason. Did not have to many problems the first 11/2 years other than replacing ink to frequently for my low level of printing. Recently, I have been SO unhappy due to the NUMEROUS messages "printer offline" that show up regularly for no apparent reason! Therefore it will not print. I have tried all the troubleshooting techniques to no avail. When it decides it just begins to print whatever is in queue, this can be hours or days later. I'm over it! Will not be buying anymore Canon printers!

Below Standards


from Washington, DC

The printer presents well and initially works well. The quality of the printing is satisfactory. Major flaw is the durability of the printer. I used this printer lightly and for home use. An Error code of B200 had me down without a printer for about 2 weeks. I troubleshoot all and everything, to include recommendations found on the web to no avail. Yesterday, I had to go and purchase a new printer; Not a Canon. Very complicated and very short life span for a brand name that often delivers good products.

Best printer...yes! best.


from Central New Jersey

Wow! This printer was a Christmas gift from my son and his wife. It replaces a printer which gave me nothing but headaches. This printer is THE BEST bar none. It is very fast and very responsive. The print is perfectly clear. I just love it. It scans well also, but I have no use for the fax so I can't speak of that. The fact that everything else is superlative makes me think that the fax would be great also. If you are thinking of this model printer...think no more. Just buy won't be sorry!
