Great Value and Quality!
March 25, 2017
Great printer for the price! Replaced a Canon MG5220 due to a bad printer head. This MG6820 was easy to setup the wireless. Only bad thing about it is that you have to open the paper tray manually when you print - it doesn't open automatically. First World Problems, I know! Otherwise, this prints much faster than my old one and has quality photo printing. Overall, very happy and great value. Would highly recommend for a basic home office or college dorm.
I love my new printer
February 8, 2017
I love my new printer. I was able to set it up by myself. It took maybe 20 minutes or so. I was wireless setup and an iPad. I thought the iPad might be a problem to setup but not at all. I followed the instructions that came with the printer and it worked well. I didn't read this in the description but it comes with all the ink! Very helpful. I received my new laptop a few days later and the setup also went through quickly and without any problems. Great for the price.
This printer is so cool!
July 2, 2016
Love this printer! Love the fact that I can print from my iPad since my computer broke down last week and can't afford a new one for awhile. Was very easy to install and prints lightning fast! :-)

Performs as expected. I don't print that many documents but it does the job for me. I had an earlier version of this model for years and I loved it. This one is proving to be just as good.
... of the highest rated but the Canon MG6820 is better in every way
September 30, 2015
Got this to replace my Brother MFC-J470DW printer which is supposed to be the one of the highest rated but the Canon MG6820 is better in every way. Never a single paper jam even when using different thickness and sizes of paper. Text is clear and crisp. It prints fast. Not that loud. Ink hasn't drained nearly as fast as my previous Brother printer. Scanner works wonderfully. This thing performs flawlessly all around. Couldn't ask for more. I use this daily for work and have yet to come by a single issue. It also looks better in person than it does in the pics. The touchscreen is very cool and navigating the menu/options is simple. Most importantly, the software the run the scanner and manage my scans is absolutely great. I'd give it 6 stars if it was a little easier to get the initial set-up (but it wasn't that difficult) and if it wasn't for the price of ink refills but getting remanufactured ink is the way to go anyways.

Easy to use at a great price
March 1, 2017
Very pleased with this printer. Very easy to set up and use. I love that I can quickly and easily print wirelessly from my computer or phone. Some people said the starter ink set it comes with won't last long, but I print a few times a week and it's lasted nearly a month. Sometimes the ink bleeds a bit but that maybe the fact that I bought some cheaper paper. Very pleased overall.
Goodbye MX860...HELLO MG6821!
February 20, 2017
I loved my MX-860 but, I had to lay it down to rest after so many good years. This unit is only $50 and it includes ink cartridges. It's like getting the printer for free. It's not as nice as the MX-860 but, it cost a lot less. A bit on the noisy side but, it doesn't bother me. It has no feeder compartments. You have to leave the paper tray open or manually pull it down each time you use it, and after 4 prints, the papers will all fall off the tray. The one thing it has that MX-860 lacks is the capability to print from ipad or smartphone....the reason why Imoped to purchase this unit. Regular document printing and color printing looks good. Haven't tried photo....with the cost of photo paper and ink, it's cheaper to print my photos at COSTCO.
Next Iteration of the Canon Series of Mid-Range Printers: Pros and Cons
February 8, 2017
I purchased this printer after my 5300 series Canon experienced a print head failure after several years of use. This is my third Canon printer purchased over a period of ~10 years. The MG 6820 is similar to the 5300. Pros: 1) It has upgraded controls that are a bit more intuitive. 2) The quality of the printing is good at the standard settings 3) It does what it is supposed to: Print/Scan/Copy. Cons: 1) I don't like that the paper is not contained in a tray. You need to load it from the front and it remains visible. This causes the front of the printer to extend out another ~2" this taking up more table space. Canon printers always take up more table space than comparable competitor models. 2) The "Quiet Mode" is not as quiet as previous models. My 5300 was almost silent. 3) When scanning, you can't use the printer controls to add multiple pages to one PDF file. There is a utility in the software that works well that I added to my PC quick launch bar. When I want to scan, I use that. In summary, If you like Canon printers, this one will not disappoint, but like everything else, has a few drawbacks. I stick with Canon because it lets you use remanufactured ink unlike an Epson that will lock up if you try to do this. HP is well, HP. Ink is too expensive relative to how few copies you get.
4 stars after hours of frustrion
February 6, 2017
This is a great printer however wireless set up is not easy. After hours of frustration I figured it out and now it works great.
I am going to attempt to save you the same frustration. I got a MG 6821 I will assume any thing in the 6800 is similar.
The 3inch screen on top is a touch screen. Swipe to the right touch "LAN settings" then "Wireless LAN setup" then "Standard setup", you should see your wireless router listed. You will then enter your password, I have huge fingers so I used a tip of a pen to do this.
I do hope this helped. I tested photos as well all is great on a desk top and wireless laptop.
The Cannon App is useless do not bother with it. A smart phone will most likely be print capable use that instead.
Very nice printer for the money
September 8, 2016

It does the job.
April 21, 2017
You can't get any better printer for the price, however, you get what you pay for it. The quality of the prints are just so-so, compared to my high-end Canon Pixma Pro 100 printer, but this printer has the advantage of having the scanner and copier integrated.

The only really bad part is how expensive the ink tanks are, even compared to the price of those tanks I buy for the more expensive printer.

March 18, 2017
Although this printer seems high tech and prints clearly, there are some issues we found with it. First of all, I don't love the idea of only being able to print over wifi. We move often and sometimes don't have internet. It would be difficult to not be able to print important documents because you can't send your items wirelessly. Granted, you can purchase an additional cord which would remedy this problem. Another thing I didn't love was the fact that it has 5 separate ink cartridges- it felt confusing to know what to reorder and seemed like it could become expensive depending on how long they lasted and how they were sold. I'm sure this printer is great for some people, but didn't work out for us.
I finally gave it away and bought an HP printer which I am very happy with. I think the problem with this printer ...
February 3, 2017
I had a lot of trouble with the paper feed on this printer. I finally gave it away and bought an HP printer which I am very happy with. I think the problem with this printer is the horizontal paper feed instead of a vertical, gravity-fed paper feeder.
it seems kinda flimsy and not that sturdy, so that part is not impressive
September 17, 2016
Well, it seems kinda flimsy and not that sturdy, so that part is not impressive. My real complaint is with the ink. Ink is sold in packages of 4-black, yellow, magenta and blue. The other black ink is PGBK, and I presumed that it was for photos. However, my computer is defaulting to using THAT for printing and it is costly and wasteful. Keep looking for a printer that can do it all without guzzling expensive ink.
Buyer beware
July 4, 2016
Although the printer works well and was fairly inexpensive in extremely disappointed in the fact that Canon is attempting force people to buy branded ink. I specifically bought this printer because it used the same ink as my previous Canon but although the cartridges fit they do not work with the printer. Very deceptive and underhanded. If I keep this printer it will likely be there last Canon I purchase.

Uses too much ink.
August 14, 2017
Blasts through ink. There are 5 cartridges inside. Magenta, cyan, yellow, black and a photo quality grey black one. The photo quality cartridge is used for all printing. So it goes fast. It is the only cartridge in the whole ensemble that Costco cannot refill and it's pretty expensive. The other cartridges Costco does fill, but I was told by their photo center these cartridges are the most expensive ones they fill.

I've programmed my computer to default to draft mode to use less ink. But I cannot figure out if there is an option to reduce the photo quality ink used, in order for it to last longer.
This is probably the worse printer I've ever purchased
July 5, 2017
This is probably the worse printer I've ever purchased. The paper constantly jams and there is no easy way of clearing it. You have to turn it over and "carefully" pull the jammed paper out. When printing I have to slightly nudge the paper in to get it to feed. I found that I have to align the printer heads at least once a week to get it to print a legible copy. I tried this printer because of the price. I guess I got what I paid for.
Outdated and Difficult to Use
July 1, 2017
Product had poor print quality and absolutely refused to connect wirelessly. Customer support was absolutely no help. This is also an older model printer. The online directions (there are none in the box) are for setting up with a Widnows XP computer. Windows XP has been obsolete for over a decade.
Constantly makes me reload paper
June 24, 2017
It's really kind of a chintzy piece of junk. It tells me there's no paper after about every 3rd sheet, even though it's well-loaded and properly situated, so I have to remove the paper tray, re-tamp the paper and slide it back in. Every 3 sheets! If I had not been in such a hurry to replace my old printer, I would have liked to have chosen something better than this one. The print quality is fine though, so there's that...
The replacement ink is outrageous
May 27, 2017
Easy set up, slow to print and replacement cartridges are a fortune. Won't be buying a Cannon product again. Cheaper to buy a new printer that pkg of replacement cartridges. Wanted to toss it and start over but trying not to contribute to disposable society.

Worst printer ever. Major disappointment.
June 19, 2017
What a piece of crap. Constantly jams. I am rarely able to get a single printed page out of it. It's nearly impossible to remove the jammed paper without completely dismantling the thing. I keep a screw driver next to it so that I can rip out the jammed paper after unscrewing and removing the bottom of the printer to get to where the paper is stuck. Worked for a little while and now unfortunately I am stuck with two of these horrible things that simply don't work. It also seems to have difficulty sensing that the paper tray is actually all the way pushed in. Can't run the printer with this error and there is no way to fix it. Pull out the cartridge, put it back in, pull it out again, repeat until the stupid printer decides to sense that the paper is in place. These issues happen for BOTH of the printers that I purchased so it's not me - it's the printer design. Don't waste your money. Very disappointing level of quality based on my previous experience with Canon printers and scanners.
disposable printer
June 8, 2017
I loved this printer until it stopped working. After 18 months the printer would not turn on anymore. I called canon and they told me to try a new power cord to see if that would fix it but no luck. They also told me it would cost more to fix than to get a new one. I print very little just a few pictures and documents once in a while . I am beginning to think they make stuff like this to break easy and be disposable. The only good thing was it broke before I installed my new ink so I was able to return it. The hunt begins for a new printer if anyone has a recommendation for a photo printer I would love to hear it.
PAPER MUNCHER!!
May 4, 2017
This printer is terrible. It jams its paper all the time and also will say there is no paper when there is. It is incredibly frustrating and I wish we could return it!
Didn't like it
March 14, 2017
You get what you pay for with this printer. You have to reprogram it every time you turn it off or if it goes off. Then connecting to the internet is so time consuming. I returned it
BIG HASSLE. CAN'T completely SET UP even though it's "Hassle Free".
November 25, 2016
I still can't get it set up completely. So much for hassle free. That's a joke. I've had five highly competent people also try & fail. I wd have sent it back but I didn't open it right away & was past the return date when I realized it was only going to be able to print one size, & only from my phone.
