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

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.
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.
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...
Summary: I had a tree fall on my house and office and smash, among other items, my Canon MF8170 that I had for 4 years and LOVED. The MF 8170 print quality was better than the print shop and I did all of my own brochures and ads using that machine.
Summary: Unit arrived DOA. Powered on and indicated a paper jam. Yet, no paper is actually jammed. Canon has no weekend support, either. I now have a $449, 70lb printer I can use for workouts because it's not going to be printing, faxing or scanning any time soon.
Copy Counter Chip in Toner Cartridges (Update, 11/30/10)

Summary: I'm one unhappy customer. I've had several laser printers before this one, and it's adequate in terms of its functions. However, the Canon seems to have created a business model that enables them to make most of their profits from the sale of replacement toner cartridges.
This is a non starter. The worst printer I have ever purchased.

Summary: This is hands down the worst printer and worst value for a printer I have ever experienced. I use a line of printers for my own work in professional photography and graphics, but also use all kinds of printers and devices when programming web sites.
