Summary: Terrible printer. It falsly tells you it's run out of toner all the time, and the toner is EXPENSIVE (funny that). I fugured out if you turn it off and turn in on again it suddenly has toner again and prints.

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.
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).
