Conclusion: I have some other printer brands, but nothing compared with this brand, I had different models, but I found this one very affordable in the price, vary easy to setups is a breeze ,only if you are a pinhead then you have problems. The print quality is excellent. I love this printer.
Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, durable, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
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. It's minor, but annoying, especially being that you didn't have to do this before. It seems like a backwards step for functionality.
easy mac setup, easy wireless printing and scanning

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 print a test page. Wireless printing has been as expected. Trouble-free, fast, slightly noisy (an office printer, not a home printer).
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. The only limitations is that you have to initiate the scan mode from the printer, before you command the document scanner from your PC. It is a two step process.
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: We purchased this printer, scanner, copier, fax to digitize all our papers. It duplexes both for scanning and printing. Our favorite feature is the USB port so that you can save your scans onto a flash drive. The print quality and scan quality are very good - neither is good enough for publishing, but for everything else they are great.
Summary: When this printer times out into energy-saver mode, it does not come back up after receiving a print command and must be rebooted. Canon's technical support people gave me the run-around. First, they suggested I wire the printer directly to my PC without giving second thought to the fact that I bought their WIRELESS printer. Then, they suggested that my surge protector was causing the problem even though the printer powered on when plugged into it.
