SO, I BOUGHT THIS Canon Pixma wireless printer to replace the dead HP machine upstairs. (Downstairs in the Insta-Bunker we have an Epson WorkForce 545 and a Brother HL-2170). Setup was easy, MacBooks recognized it and installed software instantly, printing works fine. It prints photos wirelessly from my iPhone, too, via AirPrint, and has a separate photo paper tray, which was the big selling point, really. Also, the touchscreen control panel is good. Expect it to be an ink-hog, but that’s why we have the laser printer for big jobs.
The Insta-Daughter, by the way, has this (cheaper!) later-edition Brother laser printer for her dorm room (it prints two-sided) and loves it. It also makes her popular with other folks on her hall. . . .
