Excellent so far 
Just bought this from Staples for $69.99. I was going for the Canon MX410 or MG4120; however, we bought it over these even though it was $10 more mainly because of the size (much smaller and space saving) and the multi-ink cartridges (4 - Black, Yellow, Blue, and Red). The cartridges will only cost $8.99 each for the colored ones and $12.99 for the black ink. One reason I chose this printer is to minimize the cost on the ink. I will have to do some more research on buying ink at a greater discount (i.e., Office Depot store brand). The test quality of the copy of the Staples weekly advertisement done at the store was excellent.

We are going to use this printer for general document printouts at the house (i.e., will not use to print 4 x 6 pictures) and to make copies. The set-up took me about 25 mins. since I had to clean the area where the old HP printer was and took my time reading the instructions. You could probably do it in 10 mins. It took no time to set-up the printer on my wife's MacBook Pro. I was looking forward to printing from my phone (Motorola Droid RARZ using MOTOPRINT) and it took less than 30 secs. to add the printer and print a PDF document I had previously viewed. It printed within a minute. Please note that I did not have to download any other apps to do this. I will try printing a test page away from the house (i.e., when I am at the store or work to see if it can be done). I then printed a page from Yahoo! on my wife's iPhone and it started printing in less than 10 secs. and both pages were done printing in 15 secs. or so. I then set-up the WiFi on the printer itself by adding the password and it was really quick.

In conclusion, and although I have had the printer for less than 1 hour, I am very satisfied with my purchase and don't regret it. I've always owned multiple Canon printers and my wife owned an HP. I will update my review in a month or so after more usage.
