Summary: It is advertised as a small office machine, but our small office does too much copying (like a newsletter) for it. It slows down after about 35-40 copies (one-sided). The toner is small & doesn't last very long. When copying, it sends out the page upside down so you can't see what you copied without turning it over. WE are looking into finding a new machine & returning this one.
Summary: HATE this machine!!! It is really, really loud when it prints. The feeder does not work properly--it always pulls in more than one sheet of paper no matter type of paper. If the paper is thicker than average, it won't pull it in at all. The scanner is terrible as well. It takes FOREVER to scan one page, and if you feed more than one page it crashes.
Reliable and High Quality Printer--And we've tried MANY MANY Printers!

Summary: Finally a printer that works. We have burned through 5 printers and I finally bought this one. Now my husband is finally happy. He's come to me 3 or 4 times showing me how very beautiful the labels are that he's printed--how they don't smear--and how they print perfect every time. Well thank the good Lord because he was losing his mind trying to get this one thing right for our business. It's reliable and quality. Thats the best it can be. Thank you Cannon.
Summary: If you're looking for a basic laser printer for home use, this one should work well for you. Unlike some others here, I found it easy to use and have had no problems with jamming or off-center printing. It's worked pretty much flawlessly for a couple of years, though it doesn't see heavy use. The problem is the scanner, which even at the "best" resolution is pretty dreadful. It works okay on certain color items, but for black and white print items (e.g.
Summary: Excellent printer for the price. For this price you can't beat this printer. It prints sharp images and does so very quickly. For our church Sunday school office it is perfect and seems like it will be very reliable. I work in IT and am very picky about technology and this printer was very fast to set up, begins printing almost instantly, and doesn't give you grief when trying to configure it. A good buy.
Summary: Really a disappointment from my last Canon. A cheap imitation. I haven't figured out how to use a lot of the functions. I had my other one for 20 years and it was fantastic. This one just doesn't measure up.
Summary: Just received a new Canon D550 to replace an old Canon PC-980 copier that has served us very well and has lasted well beyond its expected life-span (13+ years). Very quick shipping and the initial set up went smoothly (using it as a dedicated, stand-alone copier so cannot comment on the set-up to use with a computer via USB). Copies are clean and clear. BUT...the copy and printer functions leave an uncopyable/unprintable border of about 1/4 inch all around any document.
Summary: I did a lot of research before getting this printer because I was looking for something efficient but versatile, and I narrowed all the choices to this one. This printer has been great so far, the cartridge lasts for very long even that I got a spare one I haven't had to use it yet. The quality of the text and even images (Black and White) is very good.
