"Handy wireless printer." - by L. Marruquin (San Antonio, TX)
Had to use the manual connection setup menu to connect to my Uverse router, but the whole process took less than 5 minutes. Two laptops, one notebook and three phones successfully connected and printing. The print quality is great and the replacement ink is affordable.
"Nice printer is a Nightmare to set up, Canon needs to go back to the UI drawing board" - by G. Morin (Bishop, GA USA)
Short summary, 5 stars for actual printing function, - 1 star for high degree of frustration in setting it up on a network.
Let me start with this by saying I have extensive experience in IT and setting up computers, printers, networks, etc. I found setting this printer up on the network was a nightmare. There are two modes basically, one that allows it connect to the local wireless network and a mode where the printer creates it's own network and you then connect to that to print. The problem comes in trying to determine which mode you are in as there is no external feedback on the device. You have to hold down one button until a light flashes 3 or 4 times to switch back and forth, then hold down another button until a light flashes 6 times and then printer a page showing you what mode you are ... full review

"Excellent choice for home or light use --" - by L. Mountford (Bellingham, WA United States)
First things first: I'm using this with a Macbook Air 13" running OS X Yosemite (10.10.5) on a home network with router supplied by my cable company (it's an integrated cable modem + router). My background includes 32 yrs in IT (software development), but I'm NOT a "hardware geek," and I can be a little intimidated by some hardware. So I often approach installation/setup of new electronics with some trepidation.

This was probably the smoothest install/setup I've encountered. There is one issue which didn't impact the actual install/setup, but I'll get into that later.

From opening the box to printing my first page, I spent under 20 minutes. This included EVERYTHING: unpacking the printer, connecting all the bits that needed to be connected. powering it up, and installing the HP software on my Mac. You get a CD, but I didn't use it at all. ... full review
"Perfect high volume printer for less than $100" - by GreggerGalactic
I bought the Canon LBP600D or something like that, and it was awful. No mac drivers (we have a mix in our house). Come on Canon, it's 2014, not 2002, every device should work on Mac, Windows, and even iOS and Android! Get with the times. Anyway, I tried to install that and it didn't work on my PC. I went to install it like every other printer I've ever used by plugging it into power and my PC.. wrong! You're supposed to install the software first. Couldn't ever get it to work, and this is coming from someone who used to setup technology solutions small offices such as printers, servers, networks etc. If I couldn't figure that out, then how can the regular non-tech person?

Anyway, onto this printer. The Brother HL-L2340DW setup was a breeze. As easier as you could hope for, really. I placed it on the desk, ... full review
"The compact Canon all-in-one printer/scanner/copier I've wanted for years" - by Man in the Middle (Irvine, CA)
I've been very happy with the [[ASIN:B01122JFSM Epson WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank Wireless Color All-in-One Supertank Printer with Scanner, Copier, Fax, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct]] for the past 15 months, particularly with not yet having had to add ink to it at all despite daily use. However, it does have one disadvantage - a big footprint.

Thus, I was also very happy to test this new Canon TS9020 printer/scanner/copier. It has the one feature I need most as I contemplate moving into smaller quarters as we age - compact size. (See photo below of the two printers together.)
In addition, it has a new feature I love - a big tiltable touchscreen, that not only provides an easy way to make selections, but also serves as a built-in manual on how to do common tasks like inserting ink cartridges. Android users can also take advantage of NFC on the TS9020.

I very much ... full review

"... concerned with buying this product based on people having bad experiences with the HP auto order ink thing" - by IA_Hawk
Was a little concerned with buying this product based on people having bad experiences with the HP auto order ink thing. Turns out you absolutely do not have to deal with that. I just plugged the printer in, connected it to my wifi, and then selected it to be my printer from Windows 10 and it's worked with no problem, never once hassling me about ordering ink.

My guess is the issue other people are experiencing comes from installing the HP software which doesn't appear to be necessary.

I can also print from my phone with no problem. I'd recommend this product.

"Worth the price" - by Ron M (MN)
I purchased this printer to take along on our many RV trips. I haven't been using it heavily but it prints well, sharp and clear. Very compact and not that hard to set up.

I like the fact that I can also print directly from my mobile device without having to use my laptop.

This is not a cheap printer but I feel it was worth the premium price. I expect with my fairly light usage, it will last a long time.
"Love the features after I finally got it installed" - by knitting ninja (San Jose, CA USA)
The first install of this printer on a Windows 10 PC did not go well. I started by uninstalling the previous Epson Workforce this XP-7100 was replacing. Then I downloaded the latest install package from the Epson support site. Then, I spent the next two hours trying to get it to install correctly. In uninstalled, reinstalled, deleted drivers, rebooted, checked network connections etc. Getting the printer onto the network was easy, but both the install package from the internet and the included CD would not successfully install drivers. I finally had to download separate printer and scanner drivers to get things to work. I am keeping the review at 5 stars because everything installed flawlessly on the second Win 10 PC I tried and, after installed, everything works very well.

Setup, other than the mentioned install issue, took about 20 minutes which included charging ... full review

"Small printer for smartphone or tablet users, primarily" - by Joanna D. (USA)
Update: I've been using this for a few weeks and I really like this printer. I scanned in some photos (it's a rolling scanner--feeds in by rolling, not sitting on a scanning bed) and using the phone as a controller is something I found I like a lot. I can immediately send the scanned photo (or doc) choosing PFD or JPG format to any cloud drive--Google, Dropbox, etc. This is very convenient. The printer is no bigger than a long shoe box and wireless is quite convenient. Since I print infrequently in color, but want color now and then and scanning, this is a great addition to my laser monochrome workhorse printing.

This is billed as the "world's smallest deskjet" and it is compact. It's the size of a makeup traincase or an old-fashioned briefcase. When both of the paper trays are folded up, the foot print is about 16" ... full review
"Canon phone help to install is a good choice" - by Rolfie
After testing several makes and printers, I again selected a Canon; PIXMA TR4520. Wireless installation is certainly possible - if you are a pro! That you get a printer at relatively low cost, but pay for the incs thru your nose is well known.
I print relatively little, maybe 200 pages per month, so printer cost (and reliability!) is more important than inc expenses.
"Great Printer!" - by JRS
***Update 4/9/2017

Update to my previous review as I found that the printer was set at quiet mode so it operated slower than normal. Turned quiet mode off and now printer is at the speed I expect it to be.
----------------------------

Having been a fan of the 5320, I bought the new 5420 model because i needed a second printer and liked the robustness of the 5320 and thought it would be much better. As soon as I received it and replaced the 5320 on the same setup in my office, scanning speed and print speed is considerably slower (about two times slower) and I doubled checked the settings to make sure they are the same. Both were connected via ethernet cable and I can't seem to fathom why this printer is just slower out of the box compared to the 5320. I called technical support and they didn't seem to know why ... full review

"Great printer for the price. Worth the upgrade from older Brother" - by Narut Ujnat (The Sea of Tranquility, just outside of Shangri-La)
I am on my third Brother printer for the home office after purchasing this item. My other printer didn't die, it is still going strong by the way, but I wanted to get a printer that had duplex printing (back to back printing), plus had the capability for Apple Airprint and other wireless capabilities.

When I checked around, it appeared that Brother had resolved the main complaint I had with the previous model, which was the noise. The older printer would make the lights dim and would make noise I could hear through several rooms (not good when working late at night).

I jumped when I saw this printer for a really low price on a random day after looking at this model for a while (the kind of price that will make me skip eating out for a week, but not cause me to lose sleep). I am really ... full review
