Bought this model when it first came out and I'm impressed. The wi-fi was easy to set up and I can sit in the lounge with my laptop whilst the printer churns away in the study at the other side of the house.The ability to use it like a colour photocopier without the PC is also useful.Output is up to the usual high standard I've experienced from Canon printers.I agree that duplex is not the quickest but it's very handy.Recommended.
Although the printer is easy to use and a good quality printer it is definayely not economical as far as ink goes. We rarely print but seem to go through so much ink! The printer does a head clean every time it wakes us and this uses most of the ink. The ink cartridges are not cheap so a very expensive printer to run.
I agree with the comments left by Delibells, this printer is VERY expensive on the ink usage.
