Very easy to set up and excellent results from the get go!


Printing from anywhere within the house within minutes - from both PC and Mac. Used the CD printing and scanning with no problems at all. What these other guys are talking about is beyond me.

Excellent little printer!


I upgraded from my faithful Pixima 4200 and love this printer even more! It's plugged into a PC running Windows 7 Pro and shared across on the network. I've had it for almost a year and it hasn't missed a beat - super easy to install, setup and use. I...

Worst canon printer ever!


Always a canon girl, I have found MG6460 to be a disaster. Still can't get it to print from Apple computer. Driver disc not compatible. Never ever have I had trouble installing a new printer. Finally printed direct from camera card in printer. very...

Awesome printer this!


Got this printer after my old MP980 died and have been impressed with how good this thing is. Easy to operate especially if you've owned a canon ink jet before. Awesome looking, great touch screen menu and the software is pretty good once you get your...
