Comment:
Background - Purchased the MX922 off of Bezos' website for a buck under one hundred in July 2014, replacing our MX860 which could no longer could be cheaply self-repaired. Switched to Canon 5 years ago after being a faithful HP person but the HP paper feeds always failed over time and their ink was expensive. With the MX860, the paper feed never failed, I liked the individual ink cartridges (by color)...we don't do too much color printing, and love the Auto Document Feeder since it is so easy to scan/copy/fax multiple pages. Thus, given all we liked about the MX860, we decided to purchase the MX922.<br /><br />I set it up yesterday so at this time I cannot provide a long term impression. But, will share some first impressions and observations.<br /><br />First and foremost - The technical phone support was simply excellent. It is free (and from what I can tell, does not expire), 10am - 10pm EST (so you can actually troubleshoot after working all day), and everyone was smart. Staff was knowledgeable, no script reading, and handled calls out of their Chesapeake location . They were truly interested in getting me up and running and did not rush me.<br />My situation was somewhat complicated - connecting our printer to the LAN while having various wireless devices print to it via Windows, AirPrint (our iPADS), and Google Cloud Print (Gmail and other). Rather than my fumbling through it all, it was just easier to call.<br /><br />So, as just mentioned (and very important), Canon supports a multitude of pathways into this printer...Windows, MAC, AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and even Android. My entire household is enabled across all our devices! You can even email documents to your printer for printing but I have not enabled/tested this particular feature yet. Similar with Google Cloud Print, you can print to your printer from anywhere...cool and I have enabled it (though doubt I will need to use it much). As mentioned, I have the printer hard-wired to our LAN and we then print to it via our wireless network.<br /><br />The printer has all the multi-function features I was seeking - print/copy/scan/fax. I haven't really put it through its paces yet but all the basic features seem to work fine. What is nice about the copy/scanner/fax is that when working directly off of the glass, the cover can lift up a bit to accommodate thick sources such as books. You can also collect the scanned image onto a USB stick or have it saved on your PC in various file formats. Tech Support told me I can also scan into my iPAD and Android but I have not tested this.<br /><br />The printer can be a little noisy as it prepares for printing or after it ends...you hear things sliding and gears rolling. The printer does offer a quiet mode to suppress the noise but the tech told me that the printing will also be slower so I have not turned on this feature....but good to know it is there. Perhaps in future design, they would consider adding more sound insulation in the machine or just improve the overall mechanism/algorithm. <br /><br />Printer has two front paper trays which can be used at the same time - the top which can hold smaller paper such as photo paper...up to 5 x 7, I believe. The lower tray can hold various sizes including Legal. What's improved (vs. the MX860) is that the depth of the printer has shrunk since Canon was able to eliminate the rear paper feeder.<br /><br />Physical/Aesthetics - Perhaps my biggest disappointment but for my needs, function trumps beauty. My MX860 was a nice combo of silver and black (probably plastic)...a sleek design that was attractive and integrated well into our living space. The MX922 on the other hand is simply a large black plastic device which is very boring and actually feels like an intrusion. Worse, the black plastic is glossy/shiny so fingerprints stick (but perhaps those with stainless steel appliances are used to that). However, when I perused the printer shelves at the big box stores, most of the printers looked of similar materials. I need to figure out how to clean the exterior. The various function button are sunken (aligns with the casing) so perhaps that is a plus…less protrusion and maybe less dust to collect.<br /><br />So, at this point...no real regrets and the pros totally outweigh the cons. The price point seems right, the Canon quality to date has been quite good so I am hopeful, really excellent free phone support, and multi-device support. Should my experience change, I will come back and update this post.

Comment:
After 3 years of Good document printing, the printer started to show signs of wear. The documents could be a bit sharper, but presentable. It constantly jams. Well it jams all the time now. The document tray door doesn't shut properly. Repairs will be too costly, therefore I will be purchasing one in the next few days.<br /><br />As for the printing quality of photos, it's average to poor. It's a lot cheaper and better to send all my photos to Costco for printing.<br /><br />Everything else is good to excellent. Wi-Fi is a breeze to set up. Scans are good. FAX's with no problems. <br /><br />Windows 7/8/8.1 needs little set up. The driver that Windows provide is fine, but opt to download the version from Canon. Although, my iPad connects and prints with NO user configurable options. <br /><br />The best part of this printer is I got it free from Frys for purchasing a laptop.

Do not buy if you want wireless support!

Comment:
I have had this printer and the earlier model. I had trouble with both printers dropping wireless support and being unable to connect. Canon blames the router. I finally found a Canon forum which has lots of people complaining about the printer losing connection. I would not recommend to buy if you need wireless support.
