Canon Doesn't Support Mac Scanning

JimQ, MacMall
6 December 2010
  • 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.

  • Summary: Ok, first off, let's just admit straight upfront, we're using apple computers and an apple network, so at least part of my frustrations can be brushed off because of that. However, we've had this about a month and a half and it's been actually functioning about 1/2 the time.

Then, had to change POP ports and use a mail forwarding service for SMTP since my ISP blocks port 25. Anyway, it works, and man does it work.

Worked great, until no driver support!

M. Thompson, Amazon
19 December 2007
  • Summary: Would not recommend this printer for network environments. It was performing flawlessly until we upgraded to Server 2008, for which Canon does not have a supported driver! Major let down Canon...how about some forward compatibility!?

Unreliable Fax Reception

Paul M. Malecki, Amazon
19 December 2007
  • Summary: I need a reliable fax/copier that can copy/send legal-size as well as 8.5 * 11 pages. I have an excellent Fujitsu scanner and do not need a backup. Since replacing an old HP multifunction two months ago with the Canon MF4690, I have had nothing but trouble receiving faxes on my dedicated line, and...
