Geoff, South Africa. 21 May 2018
A good printer for a very good price! Set up was a little more tricky than I've had with previous printers but once it was done I've had zero issues printing wirelessly, unlike my previous HP printer which cost double what the Canon did.
Grant, South Africa. 8 January 2018
Good printer for its price, easy setup...
Rene, South Africa. 19 September 2017
Love it, love it, love it. Setup - easy, use - easy, price - really well priced.
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.
Richard, South Africa. 6 August 2018
So far the printer performs as advertised. Love the wifi facility whereby I can print from my cellphone. No more hassles of downloading to my computer.
Lesley, South Africa. 2 May 2016
Excellent product. Easy to set up. Does what it says it will do!
Cheryl, South Africa. 14 February 2018
Have set up the copier but haven't been able to connect the scanner to work yet
Albertus, South Africa. 27 June 2017
Jonathan, South Africa. 11 May 2018
This is the worse piece of complicated junk I have ever come across in my life!
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!!!
Tina, South Africa. 4 June 2018
Very happy with this little printer, very easy to setup if you read carefully and does the job well. Love that it's so easy to scan as well. It comes with setup ink, one colour and one black. Make sure you buy a separate USB cable as it does not come with one. I think some reviews said that it was a bit loud, I don't think so at all.
Sean, South Africa. 18 September 2017
Very nice product!
Wayne, South Africa. 22 June 2017
All round a great printer at a good price.
Heidi, South Africa. 21 November 2017
Easy to install. Very user friendly. Prints from any device.
Chantelle, South Africa. 20 September 2017
A brilliant little printer at a reasonable price and the replacement cartridges are also reasonably priced. Very happy with my purchase, in fact this is the 2nd one that I have purchased...
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
Nick, South Africa. 7 June 2018
I set this printer up for my technologically-challenged mom and she loves it! She says it is so easy to use and prints so well.
I installed it without any trouble. The computer had no CD drive, so I had to search for the software online. After a bit of searching, I found and downloaded the software at the Canon Europe site. Between the Quick Install guide shipped with the printer, and onscreen instructions, I had no trouble installing and getting the printer to work. (I'm sure it would have been even easier if using the installation CD shipped with the product.)
I believe this printer is excellent value for money. And it is such a pleasure having it delivered to my door and not having to lug it all the way home myself from the shops.
Gary, South Africa. 30 September 2017
This is by far the worst printer I have ever had in my life. It can be full of paper and will continuously tell me that there is no paper. It has been a complete waste of money, I will never by another Canon printer.
Kay, South Africa. 9 December 2017
The worst printer I have ever used. I used to think Canon was a good brand.
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.
Ayub, South Africa. 12 February 2018
extremely Good value for money cartridges are reasonable and lasts well worth it
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.
Hogard, South Africa. 20 April 2018
I am impressed with the quality of the print although I find the printer extremely slow even when printing in draft quality.
Craig, South Africa. 5 March 2016
Great wireless printer once you get it setup
Leonard, South Africa. 14 May 2018
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
Michael, South Africa. 10 November 2017
Awesome machine, easy to operate effectively, effortlessly and scans excellent documents via wireless, connected to my iPhone and my iPad, simple to remove and fit cartridges. Real value for money .
Pieter, South Africa. 6 June 2018
Great value for money printer. I did the whole setup without plugging in a single cable (except for the power cable, of course). I can now print over WiFi with my laptop and my phone (never thought I'd need to, but we've used it a lot). Print quality is pretty good for a multi-functional printer. Scanning is a breeze. Very pleased with my purchase.
Lauren, South Africa. 26 October 2017
Very good buy for the price. It works on all functions and my mother can even use it!!!
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.
Bruce, South Africa. 17 January 2018
Nice small printer for the price, been using the wireless scanning option and its been working great.
Louisa, South Africa. 6 February 2017
Arthur, South Africa. 24 June 2018
Very good now problems with 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
Brandon Bernitz, South Africa. 12 September 2017
Perfect printer. Can't fault it.
Valerie, South Africa. 13 December 2017
Very pleased with my order
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.
ZELDA, South Africa. 11 January 2018
Very good product. Set up was super easy. Good value for money
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
Ewan, South Africa. 4 February 2018
Having had a few installation problems ( sheet no 1 fell out the box and was unseen under furniture) once it was found the next morning everything went well and I am extremely pleased with my purchase. It takes a bit of getting used to but provides excellent results once you are with it !
Hannes, South Africa. 26 June 2018
Quick and easy setup. Print quality is good for a printer of this price range. Very impressed
lauren, South Africa. 11 April 2018
set up was quick and simple, just battled a little with knowing how to angle the cartridges, but once that was sorted it was fine. using USB cable from.another printer so can't comment on that function. threw away fax cables. fax, in 2018?
Nokkie, South Africa. 29 April 2016
SO FAR SO GOOD, EASY TO WORK AND USER FRIENDLY
Diane, South Africa. 29 May 2018
Excellent multi function printer and scanner. Easy to set up and easy to use. Very happy with this Canon product.
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 ðŸ˜ƒ
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.
Herbert, South Africa. 6 September 2017
Good value for money. Not a fan of Canon, but this one surprised me and won me over
Yogesh, South Africa. 24 September 2017
Excellent product - wireless network setup is indeed made simple with step by step flow chart - this product is ideal for students - imagine reading a concept that boggles the mind and the ever resourceful google search engine is resorted too which actually yields an article that helps understanding this concept time to print - wait I used my phone as my laptop was off! Oh dear what now? Think you get the idea - effortlessly print document from any device able to connect wirelessly - from virtually anywhere in the home - only downside paper does jam now and then but then again .....wirelessly
Cheryl-lee, South Africa. 27 June 2017
Sleek and compact design. Setup was really easy, just follow the instructions in the setup guide. Luckily I have a couple of spare usb cables, which made it so much easier. Connected with my phone after I registered the product. Prints look great. Just very, very noisy when printing.
Barbs, South Africa. 5 December 2017
Wonderful and easy to configure. Works brilliantly.
Ncedile, South Africa. 16 February 2018
Great works perfect
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.
Theodore, South Africa. 9 February 2018
Sofar everything fine great buy.

Happy with the product and it print from the cellphone which is convenient!
Daleen, South Africa. 7 March 2018
Very good printer for the price. Setup was easy in hindsight but it did take me a while to get it working properly.
Aslam, South Africa. 22 January 2018
Excellent value for money, but the wifi setup is way way too complicated, I am printing using USB cable. Otherwise no problem at all
Mauritz, South Africa. 21 March 2017
Christo, South Africa. 14 November 2017
Great product for the price. Priting good. Scanning fantastic. Wifi printing is Amazing. Love the free programmes that give you cards, decorated papers, envelopes, tags, etc.! GREAT product!!!
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.
Zelia, South Africa. 19 February 2018
It's a nice, compact system. The printer seems efficient and quick. I love the fact that I can feed multiple documents into the scanner the most. The scanning quality is good too. The wifi function has been 100% and I've had no dramas keeping the printer connected to my PC.
Fabian, South Africa. 11 January 2018
Colour cartridge lasted less than 50 prints. |Hope this is not the norm.
Faith Simon, South Africa. 13 October 2017
wow im very impressed with my printer.thank you so much take a lot..printer works perfect!!
Dodd, South Africa. 9 January 2018
Wireless Printer does not connect as wireless
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'.
Marthinus Viljoen, South Africa. 10 October 2017

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...
Warren, South Africa. 17 August 2017
Excellent value for money and surprisingly simple to setup.
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.
Philip, South Africa. 1 August 2017
Perfect for my needs
Delivery prompt and efficient
Good job Takealot
Daniel, South Africa. 1 June 2017
Great wireless functionality
Nicholas, South Africa. 9 May 2017
Great value for money from a trusted brand
Stephen, South Africa. 24 October 2017
It's working and seems to work well so far. But it's one of the most dysfunctional obscure menu systems i have had to use in a long time. Your going to have Google how to setup wifi without wps because the instructions are useless and even then battle with a terrible design menu. After the setup it seems decent enough.
Tanya, South Africa. 29 July 2017
Very happy so far. It isn't the fastest printer - when you switch it on and want to print it takes a few seconds, but nothing major. It has jammed once so far, when I wanted to manually turn a page around to print on the back. I pulled the paper out, it tore. I switched the printer on and off, it it pushed out the torn piece by itself, which was cool.
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
Mojalefa, South Africa. 15 August 2017
Enjoying this product,Love it.The fact that is Easley connecting with my phone,Awesome.
Herman, South Africa. 27 October 2017
By far the worst printer I ever bought.
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
marua, South Africa. 14 August 2017
product delivered on time,i ordered on friday afternoon and they delivered on saturday by 5pm.great job ,thank you for your services.
Keurvlei, South Africa. 30 August 2017
This product was recommended to me by a local store for everyday office use for small amounts of printing etc. Great save via takealot
Nice machine works well for home or small office use, good quality prints and scans.
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.
Mariza, South Africa. 16 March 2018
Acceptable quality printing. Not as good as MX343 was. Lid slightly flimsy. Wireless installation was easy on new model Apple Macbook but more difficult on older Mac...not sure why. The size and setting of the screen toward the back of the printer is slightly problematic if the printer stands on the wall-side of a desk..All in all good value for money.
Nazmie, South Africa. 28 May 2018
I personally didn't have issues with the Wi-fi connection.
The downside is that it doesn't include a USB cable. Also, I feel that they needed to make the instructions a bit clearer for setting up the Wifi connection.
It does the job well, as expected; and the quality of the prints is good. Scans and copies well too.
