Has anyone bought a Canon Pixma 5150 wireless printer, scanner, copier? If so, is it compatible with Windows 7 (including scanning)? Can you download drivers for it to use on Windows 7? Is it a good printer to buy?

Here's a review of it and it gets good marks. And here is the specification which if you scroll down will show you that Win7 both 32bit and 64 bit are supported. Wonderful what Google can do when you try....

Looking again it seems that the 5150 is not wireless, for that you have to pay an extra £30 for the 5250

You may wish to check the ink prices. There are many excellent Canon printers that use the CLI521 cart and the compatibles are cheap.The new range use the CLI526 cart and are more expensive I think at the moment. This may change of course. I personally use an MP640 which is wireless and also prints CD's or DVD's. If you have an Android device then the range of Canon printers with that interface are limited as well, should you wish to print from a mobile device with Android. I believe that Bluetooth requires an extra dongle for most of the Canon's.
