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!

So pleased with my printer!!, South Africa. 25 February 2017

Set up was quick and so easy! Works like a dream!! As always a pleasure dealing with Takelot!!!

Wayne, South Africa. 22 June 2017

All round a great printer at a good price.

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.

Louisa, South Africa. 6 February 2017

Love it

Susan, South Africa. 23 January 2017

Very Happy Thanks

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.

Gladwin, South Africa. 7 December 2016

That's good product for money and easy to install....

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 😃

Jana, South Africa. 23 December 2016

Really Love my printer. Set-up wasnt that hard and it works like a Dream ... No CaBLES!yay

Carmen, South Africa. 6 February 2017

Great buy. Printer is a bit slow but otherwise very easy to set up and print straight from my Android phone.

Kim, South Africa. 27 January 2017

Terrific value for money! Quick , clear and user friendly.

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.

Zane, South Africa. 10 February 2017

Awesome product. Great value for money and easy to set up.

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!

Mauritz, South Africa. 21 March 2017


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

Theresa, South Africa. 22 March 2017


Anne, South Africa. 20 January 2017

Very happy with my printer

Mariette, South Africa. 1 March 2017

Very fast and efficient!

Nkululeko Khumalo, South Africa. 3 February 2017

What a great MFP easy to setup both wireless and USB, on windows 10 no need to install drivers, very quick and quite love it, fast delivery.

Daniel, South Africa. 10 April 2017

Works well and meets my requirements.

jacques, South Africa. 9 May 2017

Good printer and working very well. just a pity the ink cartridges are almost empty. got only two pages with the color...

Luca, South Africa. 2 May 2017

Paper tray is a little flimsy, and the setup instructions are not very clear, but once you get it all going it works well. Very easy wireless operation from the Android app.

Daniel, South Africa. 1 June 2017

Great wireless functionality

Nicholas, South Africa. 9 May 2017

Great value for money from a trusted brand

Ivor, South Africa. 16 June 2017

Great printer, good quality, thanks for the good service Takealot!

Francois, South Africa. 17 January 2017

Great printer... great quality printing. Setting up was a challenge. But great product

Gertruida, South Africa. 10 March 2017

Installed in under 20 minutes.
Easy to use.

Sebolelo, South Africa. 20 April 2017

Easy set up - functions really well and its wireless for that low price

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


elmarie, South Africa. 15 January 2017

It does what it claims to, but the manual could've been written with clearer instructions it took a while to figure out the setup but other than that its a pretty great printer

Peter, South Africa. 31 May 2017

Paper jamming is an issue.

Rebecca, South Africa. 14 June 2017

The printer cannot automatically print back to back (duplex printing) which I find incredibly frustrating and wastes paper. Therefore printing leaflets and booklets is a nightmare.The manual option on offer is not very practical when printing multiple copies and your text/alignment won't always be straight. Quite annoying.

Joshua, South Africa. 5 June 2017

Great printer, does jam often other wise very good.

Graham, South Africa. 13 June 2017

all round great

Shane, South Africa. 13 March 2017

Little on the noisy side. Quick to set up. Prints well. My other Canon (4450) takes ages to warm up before the first print. This one is a lot quicker to warm up.

Allison, South Africa. 24 October 2016

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

Jacey, South Africa. 12 March 2017

Worst printer in the world. i urge you not to buy this product.

James, South Africa. 30 January 2017

Very simple to install and totally compatible with Windows 10. No loading of drivers or any additional software, Have not tried the Wi-Fi connectivity as I use the intranet cable.
