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 The CD has outdated software and no driver for a Mac computer.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.
Excerpt: I am happy with this purchase. The printer is reasonably sized and the printing speed is actual pretty fast. The only downside is it cannot connect to your PC via wifi, and you have to buy a cord to make it to print. Yet, consider the price, no complaints!
Excerpt: Bought this printer to replace an HP laser which was always causing problems and frustration, first with a windows based computer, then with an imac. finally gave up on it after it just refused to stop printing endless amounts of blank pages and so on. This one is pretty nice and small enough to keep on the top shelf. The pages come out very crisp and sharp, and the speed of the printer once it gets going is impressive.
Excerpt: I had much difficulty with the delevery of this item since the Staples Delivery guy left it on the front porch of a busy apartment building a half a block from the Venice Boardwalk which is one of the most busy attractions in Southern California - second only to Disneyland in Orange County.
Excerpt: A nice compact black toner only printer. Fast, crisp pages just in time for tax season. Cheaper than buying ink combos for similar style printers. Only drawbacks would include not wireless, and no ability to scan. Printer cable not supplied in box, but what did you expect for $49.
