Summary: have used canon for the past twenty years along with epson, lexmark, HP, and xerox. canon has good quality for the price, can't figure ourt how to feed card stock automatically, always have to hand feed ???
Summary: This machine has great features, especially for the price. I bought it in February 2013, so it is about 4 months old. I use it in a small office where we make less than 100 copies per month. I have gone through one toner cartridge each month! At $80 a piece, it is super expensive. I use the toner saver, but the copies come out so light in that mode that you can barely read them. Everything else about the copier is great. It is quiet.
Summary: The printer does a great job of printing. It's very fast and very crisp. It's everything I expected from a new b&w laser printer, at a fraction of the expected price. It also does a VERY nice job of making copies. Scanning is a problem though. The software comes up on my computer but the whole thing hangs at 0% complete. I left it running overnight (thinking it just took a while) without any progress. I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.
Summary: This has been a very frustrating purchase. I think the reason these are so cheap is because the software and USB integration are so flaky. As a stand-alone copier it's wonderful. That's why I bought it and the laser copies are great. Connecting it to your computer is a different story altogether. I have XP Pro on an hp Pentium 4 3.2GHz and 2.5 GB of RAM. The first time I printed to it the printer could not be found and the driver suggested a cable might be disconnected.
Summary: This printer does most of what it advertises very well, but there are a few things it does VERY badly.....I use this printer in a mixed Mac/PC environment and needed a printer that prints and also scans. (NOTE: my first delivery of this printer had the scanner glass shattered and had to be returned. Cudos to Amazon for easy returns).
