Summary: The quality of this printer is above my expectations. I was concerned with its ease of use after reading reviews with complaints about how difficult it was to set up the wireless printing mode. To my surprise, it was an easy and fast set up. The printer is fast and very rugged. No jams.
Two in a row didn't work (Firmware updates defective and Canon support doesn't have proper escalation procedure)...

Summary: Just days ago I purchased one of these. Upon arrival I installed the drivers to the O/S (Windows 7 64 bit) and firmware update to the printer. Note: All of the updates came directly from Canon's website, so they are the latest and not older updates on the supplied CD that shipped with the unit.
Summary: Contrary to some reviewers, I found this multifunction printer very intuitive to set up, I just referred to the manual a few times to confirm that I was setting it up right. The WiFi was simple too --- a heck of a lot easier to set up than WiFi was with some computers.
Summary: I bought this for the office and we like it but not love it. It prints super fast and has a lot of capabilities but not the easiest printer to use. Had it here for several months and we still haven't figured out how to print envelopes. The toner goes fast, it's $100 to replace.

Summary: As of September 2013, installing the default printer and scanner drivers was trouble-free. Setup took about 30 minutes: 5-10 to unpack, 10-15 to set up the wireless config for the printer, 5-10 minutes per computer to download and install OS 10.8 drivers from the canon website, add the printer and...
Summary: Very happy with purchase. The print speed and quality is very good. Only annoyance - compared to the prior model, you now have to physically set the printer to scan before you start the scan on the computer, where before you simply started the scan on the computer.
