Case in point: a security researcher has shown that Canon Pixma printers can be hacked to run custom code. As an example, he loaded the game Doom onto the printer.
In , researcher Michael Jordan writes that the vulnerability lies in the web interface that Pixma printers offer to provide information to owners. It’s a browser-based panel that lets users check ink levels, print test pages, and check for firmware updates.
Each of my three daughters have one of these printers but use them for very different purposes. My eldest uses her's for her husband's dentistry practise. They like the fact that it has two different black cartridges, a big one and a smaller one, that really extend their use. They also like the sharp color images used to print images of patient's oral issues and instructions on how to better take care of their teeth. This is important because many of their clientele do not speak English well.
My second daughter also runs a business and uses her Canon Pixma as a scanner and fax along with printing.
My third daughter has several children at home and uses her Pixma to print out Wednesday's ads, children's activities for home and church, and genealogy. She also prints labels for her family photo DVD's.
So, I bought a Canon Pixma for my wife that will replace a two-year old HP all-in-one. Particularly I like the ability to print both sides without removing the paper. I don't have to remove the pages and replace them in the paper tray to print the second side. Nice. Plus, the Pixma is remarkably inexpensive and the replacement cartridge pack is much less than the HP.
We print wirelessly from our iPads, a Mac, and a PC with no difficulty. Setup was very easy and mostly it did it by itself. I have had zero problems with it and, after asking my daughters about their experiences, all would and have recommended it to colleagues and friends. This is a good printer!
