Conclusion: There is no shortcut for printing or scanning - you must navigate a click through menu every time. The printer reports that it is out of ink and refuses to print until you buy more toner from them while the existing cartridges are still half full - you can even take them out and shake them and hear the ink sloshing around. One year into ownership this is beginning to break - the plastic little mechanisms on the inside where you slide in the toner cartridges wear out.
Summary: I have owned the predecessor of this machine, the MF 8450c for almost 3 years. The "replace toner" light comes on and the machine locks up with plenty of toner left. I learned to pull the cartridge out and put it back to reset the sensor. It would work for a while and do it again. This would go on for 6 months before I saw any decline in copier quality! Canon said no way to disable this.
Summary: This printer prints very nicely. End of story. Trying to get the print jobs to this printer is insane. You litterly have to go into the printer setting for each and every job. If you are scanning every document requires you to tell it again what you want. I have Brothers, HP'S Lexmark and they all let you do the printing as you have come to expect. this machine has to follow its own guidelines which don't conform to a productive office.
Pros: Быстро печатает,сканирует,большой запас тонера.
Cons: Адское программное обеспечение,сканирование документов будет работать только через специализированные программы типа finereader, presto,через стандартное приложение windows ничего не получится сосканировать.В целом алгоритм сканирования документов очень сложный,к примеру если вы полбзуетесь сканером через сеть,то нужно на самом принтере этот режим выбирать постоянно,бред.Тупая тех поддержка,помощи от них не ждите.
