Summary: Have to admit,,,,wasn't easy to install....I got lucky and called my IT group from my company and he hooked up thru the VPN and took control of my computer and he did it all in 10 minutes....works great now...laughing....I've always been able to install HP Products no problem...this is a beast to install but once your done, it's worth it...
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
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.
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.
