Handles Like a Mack Truck

Maud, Amazon
3 January 2015
  • 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.

Incomprehensible Instructions

Brian O, Canon
15 September 2014
  • 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!

Windows 7 Office install and Scanning

Adam Stein-Sapir, Amazon
21 May 2014
  • 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.

Works some of the time.

BULLGATOR "SGK", Amazon
7 May 2014
  • 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: Wireless scanning is not stable, also very slow, if you want to scan fast and done in one time, connect via cable, which you have to buy in addition.

Buy this with toner!

sastian "Another Artist with a deep streak of Geek", Amazon
26 February 2014
  • 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

Mermaid T "Mermaid T", Amazon
23 January 2014
  • 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.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
31 October 2013
  • 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...

good, but some critical flaws

Sean "Sean", Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: After using the unit for two days, here is what I have found: What's good: The software works well; if you follow the instructions, setup is easy enough; quick printing and copying. Scanning works well when the document feeder works (see below).
