Canon PIXMA MG7160


An excellent printer for most home and SOHO users with great all around results, but as with any inkjet it's not about the upfront price but the ongoing ink costs.

Speedy text printing. Simple touch interface.

Small paper trays. Inks predictably outstrip purchase price.

The Canon PIXMA MG7160 offers mostly speedy performance, but like most inkjets, you've got to keep a careful eye on your ink usage.

Just looks pretty


I am totally dissatisfied with Canon. I've had many Canon printers before, but this one has been just one problem after the next. It is clear that all printers come cheap to buy and then they get you with the ink cartridges. After market cartridges...

Never buying a Canon again!

How bad can a printer be ? - buy this and find out !


n had an additional rear feed for photos), and it likes to download multiple versions of itself occasionally just to mess with the laptop and other devices. Then there are the software issues - the last canon was simple, logical, straightforward. This...

Good doorstop or boat anchor


Seriously DO NOT buy this printer. I have owned many printers over the years, but this one is better used as a doorstop. Don't get fooled buy the fancy digital display screen. Only a couple of the selections offered are worthwhile. AND, if you want a...

Terrible paper feed very frustrating


Very unsatisfied. Paper feed constantly goes into error and says no paper or wrong size paper has been loaded when that is not the case. Colours on specialty papers are inconsistent and unreliable. Unless you are just printing a few pages of text at a...
