Summary: Cheap to buy, expensive to run, and ultimately impossible to get working. It started well enough, until the low-capacity test cartridges ran out. Since then, it says I've printed 5300 pages in the 4 years I've had it; and I'd estimate about half of those are misprinted repeats whilst trying to get it to perform the most basic job of printing a standard document. Endless false jams, toner "run out" complaints, and massively overpriced consumables.
Summary: I have had 2 of these printer before. I find them small in footprint, ideal for office with limited space. When they are working there is nothing better but I have had pleanty of issues especially when replacement toners do not register. The last one I threw out in frustration..never the less I bought another.
Summary: I was really disappointed with this purchase. I know laser printers were more cost effective than inkjet, and after speaking with a canon representative who told me this would fit my purpose, I went ahead. But the printing quality was awful for graphics. There were lines through the images - noticeable most when printing batches. The first would look OK, but the 5th or 6th copy would start to show lines horizontally across the page, and by the 10th copy they were awful.
Summary: I agree with the previous reviewer about the difficulty in getting it to print- I have had exactly the same problems (machine says there's no paper when there is, says there's a blockage when there isn't, the need to switch off and on again to get it to (sometimes) work). I don't expect the cheapest consumables in the world - I'd settle for a printer that works, occasionally, without my physical involvement, other than clicking a print icon.
Conclusion: Bought this canon for home office use to replace a Canon LBP5100. It has many great features however it is let down by the frequent automatic calibration it performs after the first print job. This slows down print speed if you try and do a subsequent print job as you wait for the re-calibration to finish which can take 2-3 minutes. This might not be good for toner life either. Maybe Canon can provide a driver or firmware update to correct this ?
Pros: Reliable, Compact Design, Easy Setup, Durable, Sharp Tones & Colors, Easy to use
