    I'm hoping to hear about the canon prisma MX492 specifically but any canon printer reviews would be appreciated. I hate my hp eprinter because it constantly needs to be reset/reconnected to my wifi and the canon is on sale this weekend.

    We have a Canon laser printer. Don't know the model at the moment (not at home).

    We've had the printer for about 3 or 4 years and really like it. But it is a laser printer. I am a convert to laser printers over ink jet ones. The cartridge doesn't dry out and it prints more quickly and cleanly.

    Google "MX492 review" and the results will come up with several websites with reviews of the printer. Keep in mind to also check on the cost of replacement cartridges as most companies will sell the printers relatively cheap, but then overcharge for the replacement cartridges. Below are the reviews from Amazon.com:

    https://www.amazon.com/Canon-MX492-W.../dp/B00RN08584

    PS - Amazon Canada has the printer on sale for $60.99 with free shipping, and you can earn some cash back through various third party websites.

    I had a canon ink jet, different model, no complaints, really liked it. switched it out for a laser printer (brother--love it) as I do a lot of printing also as someone mentioned lasers don't dry out. depends on your needs. (I had an hp too which I didn't work well for me either.)

    i recently got a brother laser one too and love it https://www.brother.ca/en-CA/Printer...tail/HLL2360DW it's on sale at staple right now
    cartridges can be purchased from amazon i believe on average $20. Mine came with 3 so i won't need to buy one for awhile. I had an ink jet before and didn't like it but that was years ago. Maybe they are better these days.

    I have a Canon MF4890dx which is a laser print-copy-scan-fax, wireless, duplex (two-sided copy) and it is an excellent workhorse and no real issues about the wifi except 1) sending scans over wifi is sooo slow and 2) in order to scan I have to have one hand on the printer control panel and one hand on the mouse, which defeats the purpose of wireless.

    The last printer was a Canon too, an earlier model with print-copy-scan-fax, duplex but no wireless. I upgraded my operating system and they did not release drivers for the scanner so I had to upgrade my printer to scan again. I got 6 years out of the last one and someone down at Value Village is very happy (provided they are not running Windows 10).

    Totally happy with the print-copy-faq but the scanner has been the issue in both models.

    I love my Canon printer!

    I had HP and I hated it. It would take forever to align and I went through HP cartridges like water. HP quality has gone downhill - they used to be amazing. Will never buy another HP again. Even the president of HP said that their main revenue is not from the actual printer but the ink refills.

    My Canon colour is out of ink but still allows me to print in black ink - prints great. I got mine from redeeming Shoppers Optimum points 2 years ago and it was the best decision I made. Highly recommend Canon - you can't go wrong.

    Is your HP older than 3 years? My bf had problems with his printer because it wasn't 5G compatible, and the new Rogers supposedly dual-band modem suck at beaming 2.4G Wifi. Buying new would solve the problem because new ones all run on 5G. Alternatively, you might just need to change the channel on your wifi setting.

    I have been using Canon for a decade, can't complain. Like the previous comment, it allows me to print black even when colour is out. I had an HP a decade ago that seized to work unless ink is refilled, even when I only wanted to scan.

    I was at Island Inkjet last year, the guy recommend Brother. If you don't print at least once a week, the ink would dry up and skips. You'd have to waste ink to "clean" it. But not with Brother. Brother's printer is best if you don't print too often. No word on quality.

    Our old (10+ years ago) printers were inkjets and were Canon, HP and Epson and I didn't like any of them. Printers can smell fear.

    I currently have a Brother laser printer and I like it a lot. I would recommend it.
