Burdensome software

phxg35, Canon
2 February 2014
  • Conclusion: i have used two Canon multi function devices over many years. The latest, this model, repeat previous experiences by adding a complex and un-intuitive set of software and drivers to support completely mundane and expected tasks like scanning, printing and faxing.

Good build quality, but odd size paper handling can be troublesome

Listen Here, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: I have both the 4890dw and the 5950dw. The 4890 is a little weak on build quality, so if you want a good all around multifunction and you will only print on standard letter size or envelopes, I would choose this over the 4890 for about $100 more.

Fast but not simple

gturay, Amazon

  • Summary: This item is fast, works well with duplexing, but is not automatic with its scanning vs printing. When the computer asks to scan, I must push buttons the the Canon to get it to go into FAX mode.

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.

Speedy But Not User Friendly

SanjeevP "Bottom Line", Amazon
11 October 2011
  • Summary: Speed, at 35 ppm, is what sets this unit apart in a sea of B&W multifunctions with duplex and Wi-Fi connectivity. In real word the speed was more like 25 ppm but the first page is out within 7 seconds - very nice. Real word Duplex speed is 12-15 ppm.
