Worthless

Hobbes, Canon
1 week ago
  • Conclusion: When the printer actually prints, it works flawlessly. The problem I have is that it constantly comes off line. As in ALL THE TIME. This printer is never ready to print for me. It is the only wireless device in my household (and I count no fewer than six such devices) that I have problems with. The controls are nonsensical and it might be the least-intuitive electronic device I have ever worked with.
  • Pros: High Quality Output, fast print speed
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, unreliable

fax and scanner do not work properly

Anonymous, Canon
8 July 2014

  • Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, unreliable

Worst laser printer I ever owned

Bernie, Staples
14 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I have owned a couple of dozen lazer printers, including several Canons. This is my last Canon product ever. I have had the 4890 for three months and am very unhappy The problem is the design. Two sided printing is the default and it is very hard to change. Why isn't two sided an option? Why isn't there a really simple and clear way to switch between one and two sided. I have researched this and it is a common complaint. Scanning is a bit of a pain and fairly slow also.

Worked great under Win XP and Win 8 / broken under Win 8.1

A. Kohen, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: Made the mistake of "upgrading" from Win 8 to Win 8.1. Had to delete drivers and reinstall from Canon website. TWICE! Extremely flaky. Have to reboot laptop/reset LAN on laptop and printer/ and pray that scanner or fax will work properly. Really unfortunate. Was a great device under XP and even 8. Not recommended for Win 8.1.

MF Drivers Will not install

  • Conclusion: The printer seems very well made, however I cannot install the drivers for it. The installer tells me I lack administrator privilege but this is not correct. Have searched support and it appears there is no help area to ask for help. I will be returning this product.
  • Cons: Difficult Setup
