    South Africa

    Victoria, South Africa. 19 May 2016

    Awesome MFU for the money, a little bit slow to warm up but once it prints, it works like a bomb. The Fax machine side is a bit of a mess up to install and set up. Would be cool if you could change all the settings via a printer control panel.

    Nicholas, South Africa. 26 July 2016

    Print quality is good, prints fast, scans fast, easy to use, nice to look at

    Schalk, South Africa. 6 December 2016

    Print quality is acceptable. Wifi is nice, when it works. It disconnects (even though it shows it is connected) and requires power cycle to get it to function again.
    Cartridges relatively expensive for low yield.

    Lesley, South Africa. 2 May 2016

    Excellent product. Easy to set up. Does what it says it will do!

    Michelle, South Africa. 11 May 2016

    Good enough for for the price
    downfall it does'nt come with a usb cable
    and its quite a noisy machine when printing

    Melanie, South Africa. 21 November 2016

    Really not bad for the price. Print quality is good. Machine is a bit noisy but excellent printer for this price. And ad always excellent service from TakeAlot.

    Rowan, South Africa. 16 July 2016

    One of the most frustrating printers to install. Online support is incredibly difficult to come by, and so dont even try it, just use the CD provided.

    Craig, South Africa. 5 March 2016

    Great wireless printer once you get it setup

    Ryan, South Africa. 4 February 2016

    battling to get the wifi to connect, but will keep trying

    otherwise looks like a nice small printer

    Jacques, South Africa. 3 August 2016

    Great printer, thx

    Isabe, South Africa. 13 September 2016

    The wireless connection is difficult to do and if you don't have a printer cable you're going to struggle setting it up. You're going to need to be a bit tech savvy. Other than that a good printer- especially for home use.

    Jason, South Africa. 26 May 2016

    Excellent product easy to use and to install.
    It prints and faxes with ease very economical and at a very good price.
    Good service from takealot keep it up.

    Seaton, South Africa. 10 December 2015

    Print good quality photos. Easy to operate as well.

    rhejana, South Africa. 13 September 2016

    Great product - super easy to setup and control via my smartphone

    Tracey, South Africa. 31 July 2016

    Great product, especially for the price I paid. The only disappointment was that I did not receive the USB cable with the printer, which I expected to be part of the package. Working well via Wi-Fi, however the option to use a cable would have been great.

    John, South Africa. 15 September 2016

    Easy to set up for all the standard functions using the enclosed document but go on-line or use the disc supplied when setting up the wi-fi and follow those instructions as they are much clearer.

    Michael, South Africa. 6 June 2016

    Very good value, print quality good. Some set-up issues encountered and difficult to read screen compared to my previous (Lexmark) unit

    Walter, South Africa. 18 July 2016

    So happy. It works, prints and is easy to setup. Never knew this could be so easy! Buy this and skip the rest

    Nokkie, South Africa. 29 April 2016


    Michael, South Africa. 13 June 2016

    Fairly straightforward to set up for 2 Samsung note 4 by wireless and desktop with Lan. Need to have docs in correct format to print from phones.
    Good quick delivery by Takealot.

    Vincent, South Africa. 17 June 2016

    Good value for money, no smudging and printing paper completely dry upon ejection! Worth your hard earned rands 😃

    Fadel, South Africa. 30 August 2016

    bang for buck - good value!
    works perfectly first time out
    however, a true reflection of the product will only be evident a few weeks into using it extensively.
    (and how well it goes when/after replacing the cartridges)
    overall - thumbs up!

    Lance, South Africa. 26 May 2016

    Elegant look. Easy to connect with WiFi.

    Ray, South Africa. 22 May 2016

    Excellent does what it says

    Charli, South Africa. 31 May 2016

    Happy with the product and it print from the cellphone which is convenient!

    Victor, South Africa. 7 June 2016

    The printer work fine, the cours are bright and the speed is not great but acceptable for home use. However, it rather noisy.

    Glynne, South Africa. 12 June 2016

    Of the limited range of Canon printers this has been an adequate choice.
    Easy enough to 'plug and play'.

    Estelle, South Africa. 21 September 2016

    It is an excellent printer/scanner

    Bronwyn , South Africa. 18 October 2016

    Love it. Its perfect for a home printer. It does everything! It doesnt come with a USB cord so buy it separately. Mine came with black and colour Ink so could test both printing straight away. I havent tried the wifi printing yet. Would definitely recommend this printer.

    J, South Africa. 17 November 2016


    Allison, South Africa. 24 October 2016

    Perfect for home office. Quite a task to individually install both wireless and USB setups.
