Summary: I use all features of this machine. I've owned it since Feb. of 2011 and can't recall a single jam. Input auto-feeder works flawlessly with letter size docs. Haven't tried odd sizes. My rating is partly based on the price I paid.
Pros: VG image quality, outstanding customer service, reasonable toner refill cost, excellent paper handling.
Cons: Wired networking not easily accomplished. I gave up on it and use Windows printer sharing which works fine. But, that means scanning has to be done only to the host machine via USB.
Summary: Almost forgot to add that the energy saver feature works great too. Machine wakes up on it's own on print jobs over the net and can put right back to sleep by pressing energy saver button on front panel. Checked with kill-a-watt and uses only 2 watts when in energy saver - sweet.
Pros: Very nice MFC. I don't need color printing and can't stand inkjet. I print online receipts, rebate forms, tax docs, shipping labels (paper), driving directions, etc and this machine works great for me. Auto-duplex is awesome and color scanning to a remote winxp machine works just fine. If you can...
Cons: No wireless but I can live without it, would only be a convenience.
Summary: It does exactly what I want except when I disconnect the printer and plug it back in, sometimes the printer is not recognized. I just need to turn off the printer, turn it back on without the USB plugged in, then plug in the USB and it works.
Pros: - Looks nice - Good Features - Priced Right - Can print double sided - All In One - Energy Star
Cons: None really for me, it is just what I needed.
Summary: This machine can make use of both interfaces (USB and wired lan) simultaneously so I was able to set up the scan function on the local machine over USB for best results and print/fax functions locally plus remotely over the network) Connecting over network was as simple as running a cat 5 cable from...
Pros: - high quality product (made in Korea) - latest firmware version was already installed (no update was necessary even though the manual provides detailed firmware update instructions) - unbeatable feature set at this price point (purchased on sale for less than 50% of list price!) - 32 MB internal...
Cons: - no wireless networking (but I already knew that and prefer to connect anyway via wired lan to my wireless router for a more reliable/faster connection) - network scanning relatively slow and only at half the resolution (but who scans completely remotely on the network anyway?) - not sure if the...
Summary: I had trouble installing the drivers from the CD on Vista (this was a year and a half ago), but I've used the downloaded drivers without issue on XP, Vista (32/64), and 7 (64).
Pros: I wanted something with auto-duplex and ethernet, which are hard to find at this price. I've had the printer for over a year now with no issues at all. No jams or printing abnormalities. Copies and scans look fine. I haven't gotten a chance to try the fax (my Vonage line doesn't play nice with it...
Cons: Toner only lasts about 1000 pages? I'm at 780-ish and the toner life is showing about 20%. Pages still look fine, we'll see how far it makes it.
Summary: Paid $175 for this... I've been using it weekly at the house with Macs only. It's been working fine so far, it was a little long to install everything. You have to install several things, the software, unlike the unit, is not all in one for Mac OS X.
Summary: Be sure to install latest firmware, I had a problem with the printer constantly going to SLEEP. The only way to get it to respond was to power cycle it but then after about a day it would go to sleep again.
Summary: I can't believe the value Canon put into this unit. I've used it for about 9 months and I can't say anything negative. The small footprint is perfect for my small in home office. First copy in 9 seconds from a cold start is amazing! The document feeder for copying and scanning works like a charm.
