Conclusion: Don't buy this. Cannon has gone on record as saying that the Mac market isn't important enough to them for them to develop Mac drivers for scanning. I you just want to print or fax from your computer, you could probably find something with these limits quite a bit cheaper.
Pros: Good scan quality Excellent print quality Network Printing Scan to File Share Scan to Email Scan to USB drive Small footprint (fits on desk) Paper feeder (scan and fax) Large paper capacity Web-based remote user interface Many options
Cons: It is slightly slow to print (but I don't really notice) Limited paper tray options Somewhat cheap paper feeder
Summary: We bought this multifunction copier/printer/ scanner and fax for our small office consisting of several people. We couldnt have made a better choice. There is nearly no warm-up time, hit print and it happens. The document feeder acutally feeds one sheet at a time a must when faxing. Easy toner replacement and a reasonable cost per copy ratio. Easy to set up and easier to use. Would recommend this model for any small office.
Pros: Excellent quality copies, fast startup time, feeds documents well - one at a time, easy to use. Fax from your PC through network, scan to USB. Small footprint, perfect small office do it all.
Cons: Two sided copying is misleading. Dont think duplex. However, it will take two singled sided documents and copy them onto one sheet.
