Solid, well-designed printer

Excerpt: I purchased this printer to replace a 19-yr-old HP 5P that was dying. I had looked at several HP printers in the same price range, and none of them felt as solid and sturdy as my old one. This Canon printer is solid. The product description and specs don't indicate it, but the paper tray holds a good 1/2 ream (250 sheets) and it does do faxing. There are sliding paper guides on top of the paper tray for small quantity sheet feeds as well as envelopes.
Excerpt: We love this printer! The printed material that it puts out is sharp and clear. Printer was easy to install (which made our IT department VERY happy). It is easy to use and looks nice. Couldn't be happier!
Conclusion: Image and print quality is quite good; scan functions are good. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with any Adobe product, including CS. It is a particular nuisance that it will not print from Acrobat. Also, it cannot be set as the default printer in Windows - still prints from Microsoft Office and all other software, though (except Acrobat). May need to return it....
Pros: image quality, scan quality
Cons: cannot be set as windows default printer, cannot print from adobe acrobat
Conclusion: We have the printer in my office/tv room. I have it attached to my home network. It was very easy to do. My system is running windows 8.1 and has no issues with the printer. Drivers work fine. There are also several windows 7 laptops and a windows 7 desktop attached to the network and are all using the printer. Just to mention, all connections are wireless. The quality of the print is fine for me. Copier works fine. Have not yet used the fax.
Conclusion: I am pleased with this product, except the price of the toner is high. I am disappointed the scanning is only 300 DPI Max as, when I bought it, it was advertised as a 600 DPI scanner. Software limit for the resolution?
Conclusion: If I don't' have print problem, this is good machine (But I don't like scanning quality.) Print speed is great and quality is good. If you want to scan photo, I don't recommend this. I bought this last December. Configuration was easy and everything was OK at first. Then suddenly I couldn't print. I re-configured, updated firmware and driver. Then it printed a while. Then again print error started. Somehow this printer stop responding suddenly.
Excerpt: I had a hard time getting it hooked up to my computer, but I called the technician at Cannon and they helped me in five minutes. I love this printer, it is fast and is just what I needed for my small office.
Excerpt: I am a big Canon fan. I think Canon is one of the best brands out there. If you want something that prints high quality and is fast then this is the machine for you. It is pretty easy to set up. I am a 55 year old female and did it all on my own. The fax machine was pretty simply too. This comes with lots of paperwork and manuals so any questions you have are right in your hand. The quality of this printer is decent. A little flimsy but better than others I have seen.
Pros: Ace Of All Printers, Compact Design, Durable construction, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Low Ink Consumption, Quality, Reliable
