Summary: Great little printer. For the price, I didn't expect much at all, but I prefer it to my HP inkjet that cost 3x as much. It's only 600 DPI, so don't expect brilliant illustrations or shading, but if most or all of your printing is texts and basic graphics, you cannot go wrong with this little workhorse.
Summary: This printer has been a godsend for my college dorm! It has saved me from having to go to the library and print late at night. It is plug and play with the Mac, you can find cheap toner refills (if you look for them), and has a small footprint. In relation to other laser printers, this was cheap but still high quality! At the time, I only paid $49 for the unit and USB cable. A year later, I've had a major hiccup with the printer that has rendered it inoperable.
Bad installation file from Cannon but once past that a great printer

Summary: Unlike most others here, the install for me was hell and took two hours. I installed on Windows 7 65 bit. I went to the the Cannon site to get the drivers and under the name of this printer they gave me just this: LBP6000_R150_V110A_W64_us_EN_1.exe I tried everything to get this to recognize my usb connection and no go; it just did not work at all.
Summary: So I spend two hours figuring out how to install driver and software for my MAC laptop. The CD has outdated software and no driver for a Mac computer. So after two hours I found the answer on Apple's website from (boochap) on their Discussions and I wanted to share it to save everybody else's brain from hurting. 1. First you will need to go to Canon website to download latest software: Link is below to make it easy, copy and paste into web browser.
Conclusion: By Charlie from Eliot, Maine on 7/6/2014 This Canon image CLASS LBP6000 Mono Laser Printer is a real "sleeper" in the choices of someone who wants a high quality black and white printer that does not need expensive ink cartridges. It comes with a toner cartridge and no separate drum is needed saving lots of money. It came delivered to my home and within ten minutes I printed my first page. The printing was perfect.
Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, durable, Small Footprint, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use, smart looking
