Product Reviews
Canon PIXMA MX492 - MFP ($99.99-$30 savings=$69.99, Ends 3/31) is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 111.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Sure How Well It Prints - Because It Doesn't Bought this tonight when it turned out I definitely needed to print something before an early morning package pick up - a shipping label. I'd been needing a wireless printer, and I'm so delighted with my Canon camera, I figured I'd buy the PIXMA MX492. That was a bit more than two hours ago. Oh, I can connect - for some values of connectivity. My computer recognizes the printer. But once a document is in the print queue, that's where it's going to stay - indefinitely. Eventually, 2 out of 3 times (average of many more attempts), I do get an error - that says I am not connected. I've tried, instead, the USB connection. It's not recognized at all. This is very frustrating, and I will most likely return this product without ever printing anything. Still definitely need to figure out how to get this shipping label printed before the pick up time tomorrow. Canon, you just lost a potentially very loyal customer on this one. :-( How is it that printers are still not reliably "plug and play"? C'mon now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from complicated setup I'm on day three -still cannot get the wireless connection to pair .The comcast router is three feet from the printer. The LCD display is just terrible .My HP printer paired within 15 seconds. I'm not sure I have the time to play with IJ cloud setup. I suggest Canon software designers rewrite the setup procedures.In this day and age this version of Canon is a step backwards.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Low Print Quantity-Drinks ink I've had my 492 for a month now and I've already gone thru 3.5 Black Cartridges and 2.5 color. Only the first of these was std capacity!! I average 75 pages a week. I have regularly had a print job not be able to complete or begin printing in stripes after 40 copies, far from the 300 promised with the high capacity. Yes I do run regular maintenance before beginning any printing with a new cartridge. Very dissapointed and expensive to use this as my day to day printer.!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Does not come with wire to connect computer, trying to connect through Bluetooth is a serious pain. 2 weeks I have had this printer and it will not work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this printer. I now have two of them. I've had one PIXMA MX492 for over a year in my home office, connecting it with WIFI. For unrelated reasons I had to change WIFI routers, and used WPS to set it up again. Worked like a champ. I use it for medium duty printing and scanning, and it has been reliable, and prints & scans with high quality. The automatic document feeder works very well, and is one of the reasons I chose this model. It has proved versatile, as I have had to use it with a variety of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 computers. Now I spend lots of time on the road, and I needed a printer in my hotel room, so I bought a second MX492, which I need to use with a USB cable. Since I already had MX492 driver and software installed, I tried to find somewhere in the user interface to add the USB instance of the printer. After a few minutes of trying, I couldn't figure out how to get my Windows 10 computer to recognize it, so I called Canon support. The tech support person was very helpful, and inside of 20 minutes it was up and running. It turned out that you have to install another instance of the driver, as the wired interface is in essence a completely different printer from the wireless one. The only remaining issue is that the USB instance of the printer does not show up in Control Panel, Devices and Printers. The tech support person said that there is a glitch in Windows 10 which fails to display the printer for as long as 24 hours. It hasn't shown up there yet after about 22 hours. It's no big deal, because the USB MX492 instance does show up when I use the print dialog for applications (e.g. MS Word), and works for both printing and scanning. While the printer's LCD panel is not the most intuitive, I have never had a problem figuring out how to get it to do what I want. Overall I'm very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I have had for over 6 months and don't seem to be having any problems with it. of course I don't print every day but even the photo's are great. And scanning is very easy. Haven't used the fax yet so don't know about that yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from the ink cost more than the printer Even if i could get this garbage to work, the ink cartridges cost more than the entire printer,. Stay away

Rated 5 out of 5 by from over a year and great we have had this all in one for over a year and it is absolutely perfect - no wifi issues, noises, paper jamming, etc.
