Summary: I'm using this multifunction device in a home office with a MacBook Pro and an HP laptop. I have always used Canons because they have a long relationship with Apple, and I have used Apple products since the 1980s.
Conclusion: Good multi-use machine but incomprehensible manuals. Not intuitive to use- need manuals initially and manuals are incomplete. E.g. no indexing, and it shouldn't take 4 separate sets of documentation to explain all the features. Just give me one comprehensive PDF with everything in it!
Summary: Bought this to replace Brother multifunction which started to fail mostly as an office printer and scanner. * If you are installing on Windows 7 do not use the install CD - you need to download the latest MF Toolbox from Canon's website.
Summary: When this works, it is a fine printer and scanner. But the problem is that almost every time I need it, something doesn't work. Either it has lost connection to the network, a glitch requires a restart, or I must leave my office to hit a button on the remote printer.

Summary: We have owned our printer for just shy of 2 months. We use ours for general home use and have really liked the printer itself thus far. However, the 3 star rating is because we have already depleted the "STARTER" toner cartridge and we haven't even gone through a single ream of paper yet.
Scan is taking a long time, if double sided scanning is important, consider another printer

Summary: Overall, I do like this printer. I got this all in one printer from Amazon for $180. For the price of it, the unit is definitely worth it. The scan takes about 25-30 seconds per page. If you have a double sided document that you like to scan, well that will take about 1 minute per page.
My unit bricked itself. Local service system is aweful. Warranty exchange program is AWESOME.

Summary: First, the single data point I have is the product is fragile. The unit I got bricked itself even though I had barely used it. I found it one day in a firmware "download mode", and after a few exchanges with Canon service they identified it as some kind of EEPROM problem I needed physical service...
