MX860 conflict with W7

Anonymous, Newegg
18 February 2010
  • Summary: And what about all the other great user ratings that claimed compatible with W7? Researched microsoft website and found out that the canon navigator s/w conflicted with this file; C:\Users\<user name>\App Data\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Network Shortcuts\My Web Sites on MSN Deleted and now all okay.

disappointed

  • Summary: I wouldn't touch it. There has to be better printers out there that will perform better.
  • Pros: sheet feeder is nice option for scanning multiple pages
  • Cons: I hadnt printed many pages before the black cartrridge was out of ink. I was getting the low ink message when I received a new message : error code 6C10 which has locked up the printer. I am going to have to send it in.; other thoughts: the printer is very slow to begin printing.

  • Pros: Overall, this is an average printer. I expected more: + Networking does work fine with Mac + PC. I have both and they can both access and print correctly. + Scanning, printing, copy, ADF. Great features, the Auto Document Feeder is especially nice for copying or printing. It handled 10-20 pages f...
  • Cons: - The networking tool is a little clumsy. I expected it to act as a print server, but you really have to install specific cannon software on each computer - even if it's on the same network it need the special canon sub-network installation. - The printer is pretty slow printing from a mac. Not s...
