About - Canon Pixma MG7120
The Canon Pixma MG7120 is an all-in-one inkjet printer with scan and copy functions, and both Wi-Fi and Ethernet networking. It works with Windows, Mac OS. Individual cartridges for each color let you change only the ones that are empty. The capacity of the main paper tray is 125 sheets, a typical size. It also has a separate tray for snapshot-size photo paper. The printer can print directly on inkjet-printable CDs and DVDs. The printer has a large, 3.5-inch display screen that can preview photos to be printed from a memory card. It's got a touchscreen, used to control the printer. Like most color printers, the Canon Pixma MG7120 has a memory-card reader, which can accept these types of memory cards: CF (Compact Flash), MS (Memory Stick), SD (Secure Digital).

Just used for some scanning and printing 20-30 pages is all. I have used a lot of printers and find this one to be easier to setup and operate and quieter than my Epsons or HPs. Software was easier to use as well.

Best Uses
I've own probably 3 to 4 different ink jet printers over 15 years in my lifetime and in my experience I feel like the cannon printer lines have the best quality of both photo and document printing. The last printer I owned was a cannon PIXMA all-in-one printer as well and I can't say enough good things about it. Unfortunately it was 2 years ago and I can't remember the model but it was the printer that really sold me on Canon printers. <br /><br />The MG7120 is a wonderful printer and appears very attractive. I don't use my printer as often as I use to but when I do its mostly for the photo print feature and what I can say about it is that its very very good. I've been recently been blessed with a newborn daughter and every time someone comes over to see her, its a cinch to take picture with my phone with them, fire up the printer via my wireless network and print a copy in a couple minutes. I don't even need to have my computer on. People are always amazed on the quality of the photo. I print and scan documents from time to time as well but not as often and have nothing to complain about those features.<br /><br />The few negatives I have is that, like all printers, ink is expensive. The ink that comes with printer was quickly used up if you like to print photos like I do and getting replacement cartridges are not cheap. Also, the printer sometimes takes a little longer to warm-up than previous printers I've owned which may or may not be a big deal to you. There were times that I thought that the printer was broken because it was just sitting on the warm-up screen for so long. I did recently download a firmware upgrade (also really easy) so maybe that problem is fixed.<br /><br />Overall, solid printer with few issues. By far not the best of the best but you won't regret purchasing it especially if you can get it cheap.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Laying each sheet on the glass?! Antique
Does Not Feed Any Input
Best Uses
Having to properly place each image on the glass means little use of scan and copy features<br />Then the lightweight plastic construction would probably give from opening and closing the lid each time.<br />Don't plan on working with sources that are bound, either.
