    The Canon MX492 was hard to set up the directions are vague took me about 30 minutes. But after the set up and I printed my first picture, it was so worth the time and effort. The photographs are very beautiful and well defined.

    The item arrived over a week ago but unfortunately she hasn't opened it yet but if it helps this review I never buy any electronics that aren't HP. That's why I bought this printer aside from the discounted cost.

    Nice copies

    I was eager to receive this printer after having had an unreliable model previously. It took a while to set it up to work with the wireless connection because there were no written instructions on how to enter numerals (when entering my password to connect the router). After an internet search I saw many people had the same issue. After setting it up, I was able to print a really nice copy so I am quite pleased with the Canon and would recommend to someone looking for a good printer without spending a lot.
