Conclusion: It took me three days to have it printer. I tried every suggestion. My mac kept saying not toner or paper and it would send the file to print and nothing would print. I was ready to send it back when i decided to take the toner out of the printer one more time and look inside in the back then i saw a orange plastic frame, i pulled out and the printer came to life! I spend 10 hours trying to make it work!
Summary: I bought this printer based on a critique that indicated it is compatible with a MacBook. Well, NOT. No Apple drivers are included and I found it very confusing on how to locate the correct drivers. The printer went back, even though the return shipping cost me almost $14.00.
Excerpt: The first printer we received was damaged inside the inner box packaging. Staples was quick to replace this with no problems! When we received 2nd printer, it was undamaged. However, our IT technician tried several times to install this printer on a workstation with Windows 7 newly installed on the machine. The Canon software disk that came with the printer stalled and froze up the computer two times. Then, he tried to download the printer driver from the network.
Excerpt: bought LASER printer to upgrade my inkjet. Needed more defined labels and barcodes. I dont know if its the temporary cartridge but its awful.Just ordered a new cartridge to see, it cost me more the the printer......so much for a SALE.
Summary: I've had this printer for less than a month. A little over 3 weeks. I'm a college student, so I use it religiously -- although not more than I've used other printers (like my handy Brother printer). I've printed MAYBE 300 pages, at most. Somehow, my printer's toner ink is low... it's streaky and I can't print my papers/notes. It's stressing me out because I have an exam on Thursday, a paper due tomorrow, and another midterm I need to print out readings for on Tuesday.
Conclusion: FYI: You need the UK firmware if you have OS X Mavericks. Google is your best friend. The printer is a pretty good bargain. Looks aesthetically pleasing. It's compact and doesn't take much room. It's quiet. Overall good quality.
