Summary: A classic example of the pitfalls of buying online. Despite mostly positive reviews, my experience with this printer so far has been terrible. At first it printed and scanned fine. But after the first jobs, it now refuses to communicate via wi-fi, in either print or scan mode. The blue light comes on, and it says it is connected, but doesn't respond to commands. Operating it manually has been a big disappointment too.
Summary: What a piece of junk ! > 1. rear slot paper feeder failed (it now won't feed the paper straight so it will always jam) after using the printer only 3 months. Tried every fix recommended and no paper jam either just a mechanical failure. 2. electronics of the printer is incredibly slow - after I send a print command to this printer, it then proceeds to "processing" as the screen says for several minutes making all sorts of mechanical noises and buzzing sounds and then...
Summary: I am writing this review for those who, like me, needed a copier scanner but are not able to spend 5 months researching it. If you are an expert, please pass by; but if you are part of the general buying public, learn from my mistakes, if you can. The machine promises nice features. It wasn't that easy to set up, but it could be done without too much trouble. Why the complaints? 1. It is slow and cranky. It powers down between jobs.

Summary: I would like to review this printer in terms of it's function but I have been unable to get it to function properly despite repeated discussions with Canon. I don't have an exotic computer or an ancient operating system- I have Vista, yet from day one I have been unable to get this machine to function properly.
Summary: The amount of paper jams this things experiences is unbelievable. The paper repeatedly gets jammed in the tray, and crumbles up. Sometimes It will take me 5 sheets just to print a single page document. I love the print quality once the document actually prints, but it is not at all worth the hassle.
