Canon PIXMA iP2840 Single Function Printer
South Africa

Joachim, South Africa. 3 September 2016

It is indeed an "entry model". It was the only Canon single function printer which I could find and it serves its purpose (4 out of 5).
One problem: When printing A4 posters with a bit wider page border , the printer cuts off most of the bottom border.
Canon SA were helpful with advice about settings but applying them does not help. So, I gave up.

Great small printer that does what it is supposed to.

Leonard, South Africa. 8 July 2016

Completely useless printer! It cannot do even the most basic print jobs. They say it's high definition, but doesn't print any lines finer than 0.5 mm. It's supposed to be a colour printer, but I've never been able to get mine to print colour, after hours of troubleshooting.
It picks up two or three sheets of paper at a time and prints on the top one, sometimes the paper slips and it prints your document half on one sheet and half on another. Don't waste your money on the worst piece crap Canon has ever called a product.
