Several small annoying problems

Big Time Shopper, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this multifunction printer for several months now. I used to have the HP Laserjet 3030. The Canon "wakes up" form sleep mode very quickly,and prints more pages per minute than the HP, which is very helpful (although printing more pages per minute than my old HP 3030 is probably no great...

Windows Yes, Mac No

  • Summary: This is probably nearing the end of its product cycle. It is a fantastic Windows networked printer (wired), but even with the 1.8 version OSX drivers (that you download, no MAC drivers or documentation is enclosed), I cannot get it to print networked as a standalone printer.

  • Summary: Well, I've finally reached my maximum level of frustration. I have 22 Canon 4690s in various offices. They have been great, the Fax to email works fine, does a good job of copying and printing - though the toner cartridges are a bit expensive (they are alternatives).
