Summary: I'm just about to install our first replacement cartridge for this machine after two years or so. Hard to say how well it uses toner but we surely got between 1000 and 2000 copies on the original toner. We use it regularly though not heavily, and it has been smooth, easy, and versatile. It warms up quickly and it's even fairly quiet. Paper and toner load easily, the manual bypass is easy, the controls clear.
Summary: we use this copier in a dental office 3 days a week and with normal usage it goes through $132 cartridges of toner in about 45 days-even when it is on it's "toner saver" setting. that's a lot of toner and money. spend a little more on your copier, because what little you save at first, you end up spending over and over and over again every 45 days.
Summary: I teach English in a small school and was often frustrated by turn-around time to get copies. Often a class would need clarification, which could be easily obtained by throwing an overhead up on the screen or discussing some extra review sheets. I am able to run overhead sheets easily through this copier, make a fast copy of a note home to a parent, or use it for a variety of jobs. Yes, the cost came out of my pocket, and yes, it is worth every penny.
Summary: I've had this copier for nine months now (a previous Canon copier had given us ten years of good service) and am thoroughly pleased with it. It has no warm-up time at all, the paper tray is ample and you can use a side slot to get a quick copy on a different color or type of paper if you want. It's quick, makes multiple copies, you can increase/decrease the image size, and it has very intuitive controls. Fairly quiet and fast as well. Quite a good buy, really.
Summary: We use this in a fairly busy one physician doctors office and we have found it to be dependable. It's fairly quiet, and gives us good quality copies. What more can you ask. Another good thing about this one is, there a good quality generic toner cartridges available on the web. That really is a plus when your doing a lot of copies per month, like we are.
Summary: My office recently purchased this copy machine. After 2 months of use the paper started to jam every other copy. When I called for service I got a HUGE run around and finally took it back to the store where it was purchased. They helped me figure out the problem and showed me how to "fix" it. It is a very temporary solution and I have to "fix" it every 3rd time I use the copier. For the money I spent, I would buy something else!
