The only printer to die so young--after 1200 pages

Mark Buse, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: The printer died after less than 1200 pages printed. Color print quality was horrible from day one. Pages were distorted and color was way off compared to our other printers. Canon support was combative and refused to deal with the lemon Canon sold us. We should have just returned this money-sucking piece of junk in the first week. We mistakenly had faith in Canon to fix the problems, but they never intended to do that.

Scanner not compatible with Apple

P. John Baughman "Guy Guy", Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: you would expect that a top of the line $500 printer would be hassle free. Much to my surprise this product is difficult to configure. If you work on a Mac OS you should be aware that this is not compatible. The scanner simply does not work on a mac. Just trying to save someone from making the same mistake I did. Would not recommend this product.

Mixed bag - Avoid

wiconsumer, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: I have had this printer for nearly two years now and they are still selling the exact model I have. The printer itself prints very well and I have rarely had any problems with either print quality or jamming. I use the unit moderately, so the print cartridge life has not been an issue. However, I run my printer on a network and it is physically too far away to plug in with USB. I've run into a few problems: 1.

Hates Macs - and its mutual

This Random Guy "TRG", Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: This machine works well with Windows machines - or about as well as can be expected. A huge driver-set needs to be installed, and a custom app to scan through the ADF. On Macs, instead of using the beautiful native printing and scanning system, a 100+ MB install is needed. It installs another deamon inside MacOS X, always running, and new apps to handle printer management and scanning - much less useful than the built in scanning capabilities.

Manufacturer installed self-destruct

Impact, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: I purchased 2 of these last year for my business. Terrible decision. As previous commentators have mentioned, canon has programmed a hard coded maximum print limit into the toner cartridges, making the cartridges useless after a certain number of prints in spite of the fact that they have plenty of toner left. Also, the cost for a full set of canon cartridges actually EXCEEDS my purchase price on the unit!

canon colorImage 8350Cdn (8300 series)

eMilj, Amazon
11 November 2012
  • Summary: Good sized product...heed their space requirements. Comes with ink installed...purchase extra cartridge 118's for backup when needed. Reorder when ink is replaced. If an office printer, black goes first. Be sure to fine-tune color settings...heed their instructions. Mine didn't come with a color test sheet (hence four stars). Instructions were well-written. Setup was a breeze. Drivers installed clean.

Great printer!

TomAA5B "TomAA5B", Amazon
27 May 2012
  • Summary: I've had mine for a while and cannot understand all the complaints about the user interface being difficult to use. I had it connected to wifi, printing, scanning and faxing in 30 minutes to my Mac. The printer drivers allow complete control over the printing, which yields excellent results on documents. I have not tried photo printing, but don't expect much as this machine really is a low-end laser printer, which none print photos exceptionally well.

Very poor performance.

Tom, Amazon
21 March 2012
  • Summary: As a home office user, printing some 1200 pages per week, and owner of several Canon printers in the past with good to excellent performance of those printers, I was expecting the same with this one. However, this printer has failed to meet those expectations. The worst problem is the copier's tendency to jam at the initial point of the paper entering the copier from the paper tray.

hugely expensive cartridges, does not accept generic

E. Ferreyros, Amazon
19 March 2012
  • Summary: The quality of the printing is good but Canon has figured out a way to prevent generic cartridges from working properly with this printer. I tried several different generics (low-end and higher-end generics like LD) and they all caused serious printing problems, streaks, miss-aligned colors, splotches, etc. A set of Canon cartridges cost more than the printer. That may be technically acceptable to Canon, and is obviously legal, but it is not good or fair to the consumer.

EXCELLENT PRODUCT

skbrose, Amazon
18 February 2012
  • Summary: THis printer was purchased for a beginning home legal business. I shopped the internet found the lowest price and my local office depot matched the price. I have had no trouble whatsoever and the quality is beautiful, crisp and in my opinion outstanding!!!! The only thing I don't like is the price of the replacement toners. The original cartridges are still working great and have printed more than expected, I would say more than 3,000 pages!!!!!
