Buy Something Else

Jon L., Newegg
21 October 2011
  • Summary: I've had this printer now for a month, and been holding off on a review hoping I'd come to terms with it's shortcomings. Unfortunately, in an idiotic move, I threw away the box and packaging after opening the thing, since I didn't have space to store the huge box.
  • Pros: -Fast Startup to first page* -Document Feeder works well for scanning
  • Cons: *If first page doesn't jam for no reason Horrible color - even after re-calibrating multiple times Frequent paper jams Network Scan functions NOT AVAILABLE FOR MAC OS X

  • Summary: The energy saver can make it take a little time to "wake up" and start printing.
  • Pros: Set up over the network in less than half an hour, including the ability to do scanning. Works far better than our old canon, and prints color to boot.
  • Cons: Starter cartridges are included - buy a full set of cartridge 118 before you start printing in earnest, or at least a new black if you don't do color much

  • Summary: Regarding the fact that no features work if one of the toner cartridges is low, this is obviously a programmed roadblock, as there is no reason you should not be able to send an outgoing fax.
  • Pros: Low acquisition cost.
  • Cons: 1. No features work if one of the toner cartridges is low. Toner status has only 3 settings, the middle of which lasts for about 10 pages: "OK, low, replace." 2. The starter toner cartridges that are included exhaust quickly. 3. A set of Canon replacement cartridges cost as much as the printer. 4...

Great Machine & Newegg is great source

Wade W., Newegg
1 March 2010
  • Summary: I have a home office networked with a family desktop pc and several laptops. I connected the printer to my router/hub by ethernet cable. Wireless printer server is available for extra. Installation was easy, mostly automatic.
  • Pros: Good quality prints including color (see caveat below in cons), fast 1st page out for laser (all lasers require warm up time), fast printing of additional pages, quiet, ethernet network connection, easy installation, can scan directly to pdf file, no paper jams, Duplex (double side) print/copy (b...
  • Cons: Poor documentation, cheap plastic cover needed for legal sized paper, legal size scan/copy by ADF only (platen glass is letter size). Duplex printer/copier (double sided print), but only a simplex (single side) ADF. Documentation is poor. Index is poor, making it hard to find the relevant section...
