Works good but...

Summary: This printer works good and was a replacement for a similar printer whose network card died. It was a bit challenging to put on my network. The Netgear router and my security configuration could be contributing, so I cannot put all the blame Canon. The point is, a user without network security (crazy) would likely have no problems. Anyway, after a few hours, it was functioning well on the network. About a month ago it suddenly stopped working on the network.
Summary: I bought this printer because I was looking for a wallet friendly all-in-one printer at home that also serves my occasional need for faxing and scanning. My canon PIXMA , I found , was too expensive as far as buying ink is concerned. Overall, I am satisfied with the printer and believe its a good value for money.
Summary: When I finally got this running with a wireless connection it was great, but getting there was difficult. No matter what I did, I could not get this to work via the usb connection on my win 7 64 bit laptop. I contacted Microsoft and Canon and neither could offer a solution. I tried disabling UAC as others have described but that didn't work either. So as long as you have a wireless setup, this should be fine. Shipping was ultra fast.
Summary: As a graduate student, I needed a wireless laser printer, that would save me money compared to printing at the library. Setup with Mac was relatively painless - it took me an hour or so. The only thing to note is to be careful with removing all the colored sealing tape on the various parts. The wireless function is awesome, as I like to work in various parts of the apartment. Overall, this is a solid, fast, quiet printer and scanner (I don't really use the fax function).
Excellent MFP- working with Win7 64bit and OS X Snow Leopard

Summary: After much research and debate between this and the more upmarket Brother MFP's, decided this was a better deal for our home use application. Installation of the software and drivers went without a hitch in Win7, but OS X was another story. I configured our printer for a hardwired LAN connection with a static IP. This can prevent troubleshooting issues in the future.
Summary: This is a great printer/copier/fax machine and it's much smaller in size than the brother laser printer we used to use. So it's saving us on space and does the same exact thing the Brother did. This new machine says the toner is rated for 2100 copies. The brand new canon 128 cartridge we just bought last month is already out (a real one not the refurbished kind) and it only lasted 1675 copies!
