Excellent and Affordable Home & Small Office Copier

Summary: I have had four previous copiers in my home office over the years. Back in the stone ages (aka the late 70s and early 80s) I had one of those horrible 'pink paper' copiers, which was the only kind small and affordable enough for personal use.
Summary: All the reviews about how well this machine operates are fairly true. As far as the paper tray, I had to figure out how to adjust it (it is a combo of adjusting the paper size in the tray, then telling the machine you have actually done it through the menu system, specifying type and size).
Summary: This is a review of Canon imageCLASS MF6530 All-In-One Laser Printer. But I believe the comments here apply to the Canon imageCLASS MF6500 and MF6550 All-In-One Laser Printer as well because the primary difference is that MF6500 and MF6550 have a fax machine while MF6300 does not.
Summary: I think the machine I tried was an individual Lemon. I tried to make copies of patents in stacks of 5 to 30 sheets in the document feeder at a time. It started out jaming every other sheet. It quickly went to jaming 3 out of 4 tries.
Good product but multipurpose tray could be better

Summary: I just bought this multifunction laser printer for my wife last week because she is doing a serious amount of scanning and e-faxing of big documents. Her HP all-in-one couldn't handle more than 15 pages or a combination of legal and letter scanning without jamming or performing painfully slow.
Summary: I have been pleased with my decision to purchase this item. It makes beautiful copies and is relatively quiet. The document feeder works flawlwssly. My only criticism is that using the extra features like two-sided copying is not very intuitive.
Summary: It was meant for a 6-person real estate management office. We repacked and returned it within one week. The set up and config were easy. The printer's control panel prompted for user action EVERY time non-letter-sized media was detected.
Summary: Copy machine is a winner and a keeper. Provides the quality that Canon promises with a relatively low price. Toner cartridges are also reasonable. Makes great copies with little to almost no warm-up time. Well-rounded overall, and have not had a paper jam yet.
Summary: We bought this copier for our church teacher's workroom. It's great! Very quick warm-up and copy speed. We love the document feeder on the top. I've used the bypass tray, which works well. Nice, clear copies. Great features, especially the duplexing, and pretty easy to use. Would buy again.
