Pros: Nice Printer for the price but UPS destroyed it in the delivery so I had a small opportunity to evaluate as the printer was badly damaged.
Cons: During my attempt to use the product I do not like Canons implementation of the software. It does not work/scan and play well with my OCR software. The implemented processes to protect documents in an office environment make the thing difficult to use
Excerpt: AirPrint worked with no issues on my iPad and Macs. Complicated but thorough web interface. I never connected it to anything but power cable. I have this printer, on a wifi network (no ethernet or USB connected), with a home wifi router. To scan to email (on gmail), use these System Management Settings: Network Settings TCP/IP Settings Port Number Settings SMTP: 587 E-Mail Settings SMTP Server Address: smtp.gmail.com E-Mail Address: email@example.com...
Best of Everything - Quality, Multifunction, and Laser for the Home Office
10 June 2014
Summary: Pros: - Easy to setup. I have the printer setup on a wireless home network, no issues setting it up or connecting to the printer. - Great laser quality, text and general graphic printing is very good. - Quick. Initial warm up is a little slow, but then the printer is very speedy, certainly quick enough for a home office. Cons: - The starter toner does not last long, make sure to order toner ASAP. However, this is pretty standard with most laser printers.
Excerpt: If I could rate it less than one star I would. Don't waste your time and money, this printer is a lemon. I've been an IT pro for 25 years now, and this machine is tied for first place for WORST PRINTER EVER. Printing=unreliable, scanning=never works, software=total joke. I would have been money ahead if I had just smashed this printer and bought my customer an HP rather than waste days of unbillable hours trying to get this worthless machine functioning.

Summary: We purchased this all in one machine for our office of ~20 employees. It was very simple to setup in our office. We were able to setup the printer over wi-fi and all our employees have no trouble adding the printer to their Windows and Mac computers. Another feature we needed was AirPrint to print from iOS devices. This machine had it and it worked flawlessly with all our iPhones and iPads in the office.
