Summary: Got this printer dirt cheap from another site. I set it up as a network printer and the install was flawless. And I don't have a phd in computer science, lol. The printer is very fast and is no louder than my previous HP. Print quality is perfect and build quality is very good by today's standards. Even at list this printer is a great value. Once you own a duplexing printer you'll never go back to single sided printers. Single imaging cartridge simplifies maintenance.
Summary: I've only had this laser printer in my office for a few weeks, but am fairly experienced with various laser offerings (Dell, HP, Brother). This one is light-years faster & more efficient compared to my higher end HP LaserJet Pro 400 which has now been relegated to color-only jobs. Generic toner is reasonably priced. I will probably get another one of this Canon model.
Excerpt: Replaced a worn out 11-year-old HP with this unit for about the cost of a new cartridge for the HP. It set up easily, once I put the correct IP address into it and hooked up the right cable. It prints quickly and relatively quietly and zips through large jobs just fine. Duplexing is flawless and default. Very pleased with the product.
Pros: Fast, Mac Mavericks Happy, Mac Tiger Compatible, Nicely priced
Summary: Outstanding Laser Printer.. can print on each side of the paper, reasonable toner/drum life and replacement costs. Low energy consumption in standby mode means it can be left turned on and with network wake up, makes for an excellent network shared printer.
