This one, too, succumbed to the U error within a year.
It was simple to set up took less than a half an hour and the wireless option is great. Turning to the internet for clues, I was stunned to h052 this is a well-known problem in their firmware, that Canon has done little about it, and that there's even been talk of a class action lawsuit.

There is not many times I've felt misled and ripped off by a prestigious brand, but this is certainly one of them; this misadventure with Canon has cost me a lot of money. Canon makes great products and I expect this printer to last a long time.
Can print from anywhere in the house and have also used print share to set up printing from an HTC Incredible phone. A large of users will experience it.
