Summary: I recently purchased a Imageclass LBP6200D. Canon makes good laser printers, but indulges in bad business practices. One star off: giving a starter cartridge, and not advertising it adequately on the package. Another star off: USB 2.0 printer chord not included in the package. Yet another star off: No place to put reviews on your USA website. Bad business practice! As a company, Canon lost a lot of brownie points here!
Summary: I love the printer. It's the fastest one I've ever had. It handles thick, glossy paper easily, heavy workloads - great for an office. It set up instantly and easily on Windows 7, but it was very difficult to set up on a Mac 10.8. I called tech support who tried everything two people there knew how to do. While waiting for them, I tried just ignoring all the error messages and typing in the IP address (that I got off my windows computer's network).
Summary: I purchased this printer to print out lessons for the online classes I am taking. It is fantastic, and just what I wanted. It only prints in back and white (monochrome) and automatically prints on both sides. This saves money on ink and paper. The set up was very simple and I have zero issues with it since then.
Summary: Overall, this is a great laser printer.But it is difficult hooking up to a LAN. You need to install the NetSpot Device Installer from the Canon utility disc and reset the network board in the laser printer. Once you have done this the device (printer) should show up as ready and all you have to do is install it as a network printer from the Windows control panel. Remember to disable any firewall before using NetSpot. Also. the Canon support is not too helpful.
Summary: This is the 1st B&W Laser printer I have owned. I print alot of material for class journals & homework assignments year round. This Canon Laser printer is super fast. One of the features that I like is the duplex printing. The first day I received my printer, I printed a ream of paper, double sided. It saves time and money! I am connected via USB, so I have yet to connect to my wireless network, but my son assures me that if needed, it will work fine.
Summary: Over all not a bad printer and does what I want. I wanted a mono printer because I got tired of buying color ink and never using color. Found out that printer manufacturers lay down layers of color under the black supposedly to make the black look better. With the highly inflated price of ink I don't need that. Prior to this printer I had a Canon Pixma that did a terrific job other than eating large quantities of ink.
Summary: There is nothing outstanding about this mono laser printer from Canon, but there is also nothing wrong about it either. It will perform exactly like how you would expect it to perform, and that is why I am giving it well deserved 4 stars. It won't awe you or impress you, but it won't frustrate you. And for the price, you get quite the bang for your buck.
Summary: The mac software would only let me setup the printer via USB (No ethernet support). Very frustrating. I still haven't managed to get it set up over the network as I need a windows machine to do it. It prints fine, at least.
