Not user friendly. Have 890 and love it. My surface recognized 890 and hooked up with no problem. 479 will not hook up.

Our Canon MP620 gave up the ghost after many years of trouble free service so decided to get another Canon. This one was easy to set up as long as you download the installer package from Canon website. Does a good job of printing and automatically detected the wireless printer from 2 laptops. Tried to set up IPad air print and the photo printer worked first time but document printer will take a little manual configuration. Overall, pretty easy. Can't beat the price and features.

Cover can not be closed without emptying paper tray. Can only scan to PDF, not jpeg, or any other file type. Will not start automatically. You have to open paper output tray before it will print. My old MX340 would open automatically.Very poor design. Spend the extra bucks to get a real three-in-one.

Cons: not compatible with mac & canon site stinks
If you have a Mac stay far away from this printer. I have been trying to setup the printer with no luck. Have searched online to find how to setup this horrible printer and can not download the setup manual or link. Have been trying to get this printer to work but without setup it is useless. This was a gift and sadly going to ask my sister to return it for a different brand. What a waste of my time.
