1 out of 5 eggsFirst one DOA

Pros: Laser Color for low dollars
Supplies are not a complete ripoff
Setup is very easy. Use the automated software provided (Windows only -- they don't know about Java, I guess), or setup manually with the menus on the color LCD.
Drivers for Linux and Windows work well
Color accuracy is good and print quality is very good

Cons: No duplexer built in
Scanning from document feeder is limited to 300DPI
DHCP client seems buggy. Printer reverts to a default IP sometimes when renewing the lease. Can easily be config'd for a static IP from the menu, though.

Other Thoughts: One egg for DOA. I'm pretty satisfied otherwise, but this printer is cheap because of its limitations. I don't print double sided very much, so I can duplex manually. Copy and scan using the document feeder is a real looser. If you need a copier, you probably need one of the more expensive units.

2 out of 5 eggsHas several major flaws! Buyer beware.

Pros: Print qualityOK

Cons: VERY difficult to set up
Menu system is confusing and overly complicated
Fax and phone sensing/switching is impossible to get working
Overly difficult paper handling (ie. switch to printing on labels or other types of paper)

Other Thoughts: This is an overly complicated and difficult machine to configure and use. It has been probably the most unfriendly MultiFunction machine I have ever used. There are many, many layers of menus just to change the paper type from printing on plain paper to labels (no, it does not do this automatically as most printers do!)

Another shortcoming is the ability to effectively use the fax along with your answering machine or phone. The fax picks up and attempts to receive in the middle of calls or when a caller is leaving a voice message. We have tried every conceivable configuration and even worked with Canon support to try to resolve this issue. It has been months and it is still not working. My older HP multifunction printer which this Canon is replacing handled phone/answering machine/fax switching perfectly for many years. This is a simple technology that Canon seems to have trouble with (at least with this machine).

It has been a very disappointing purchase so far and I can't recommend this product or a Canon printer to anyone after this purchase and experience. I'm still hoping to "salvage" the buy but about to give up and go back to a more reliable and trustworthy brand.

5 out of 5 eggsYes! You can scan with Linux.

Pros: Plays well with Linux. It's a behemoth, quite heavy so one assumes that it has rugged innards.

Cons: It's a behemoth, large footprint and quite tall, does not fit well under a cubicle cabinet.

Other Thoughts: It really was a snap to set up scanning on Linux (in Gentoo at least), just use sane-pixma in the SANE backend, set the printer to Scan --> Remote Scanner and you are ready to pull a scan. No problems with multipage using the ADF either. I don't know if it is possible to set up a push scan, I didn't try.

It actually took me a bit longer to figure out which package I needed to get the printer drivers (cndrvcups), but once installed it was right there ready to add/configure with CUPS.

As with most things Linux, YMMV by distro. Unfortunately, when I went to add this to my wife's Ubuntu box, the only cndrvcups I could find available via PPA was quite old, so if you want the latest drivers it looks like you will need to get them from the Canon website and do a manual install.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product, promptly shipped

Pros: Has laser toner cartridge, Love it. Wireless prinitin

Cons: Could have been nice if it had air print so that we can print from iPad / tablet. Setup Instructions could have been simpler.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Machine

Pros: Fast Printing, nice colors, tons of features, can be configured for wireless functionality. Compatible with Apple Yosemite. Took off one egg due to the complexity of the setup with Mac OS Yosemite and the difficulty in finding the firmware version number. Price was 140 due to Black Friday Sales.

Cons: Tricky to configure, requires the average user to carefully read the manual. PLEASE NOTE, if you have this machine ethernet connected to your router, and you are accessing the print,or scan functionality via wireless computer, pay attention to the network connection. My experience shows that I can access the printer only on the 2.4 GHZ band. Unable to access the printer via 5 Ghz band.

Other Thoughts: Can only access the printer and scan (don't use the fax so I won't know about faxing) via the 2.4 GHZ band. My router is Linksys E3000, running Tomato broadcasting on Dual Band. Cannot connect to the printer on the 5GHZ band.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Printer

Pros: Has all the features you want
Can scan wirelessly
print wirelessly
save direct to flash drive
print from flash drive
auto document feeder
ethernet port

Cons: expensive toner
doesn't always resume from energy saver

Other Thoughts: Although this doesn't always resume from the energy saver mode this is still an awesome printer. I got it for $130 on black friday so it's well worth the price for the features that you get with it. Prints pretty fast after it warms up and will keep going all day long. The toner cartridges can be found for cheaper so i will probably pick some of them up just to have on hand but I have been using it for a week and haven't even noticed the ink levels going down when I view them.

4 out of 5 eggsJury is still out

Pros: - Arrived quickly.
- Good quality prints.
- Printing is quick and fairly quiet.
- Scanner is quiet.
- Plays nicely with my Mac.

Cons: - No duplex.
- "Starter" cartridges that are included are rated at 800 pages at 5% coverage.
- Machine is very loud at bootup.
- 4 cartridges cost $300 to replace.
- Its a laser jet, its obviously large and heavy.
- Paper tray holds very little paper.

Other Thoughts: - Overall, for the price I think this is an awesome deal. Prints faster and at much better quality documents than laser jets.

5 out of 5 eggsgood replacement

Pros: fantastic price on Newegg special. fairly quiet.

Cons: no scan direct to network location, I thought it had this feature, but the next model up does

Other Thoughts: I had this out of the box, connected to wireless network, and printing and scanning from PC and Android within minutes. This printer is replacing an aging Canon D480. The price was very good, satisfied so far. Many folks complaining about color output, and color matching. This is not a photo printer, is is a color document printer. It will not make good quality photos. You need a real photo printer (inkjet) for that. This, however, will make great looking text and color documents, such as letter, invoices, etc.

4 out of 5 eggsOk printer, cartridges kill

Pros: Nice color prints, easy installation, feature rich for a low price. I paid $199 for it on a sale 7 months ago.

Cons: Eros out every once in awhile. - a reboot is required. Could be postscript, when I look at the logs. Waiting for software, firmware update. No bid deal, and couple reprints a month.

Other Thoughts: Though I gave it nice reviews, I CANNOT recommend this printer. I'm sure everyone of you is looking at this going "a color laser for under $200?" I urge you to look at the price of the cartridges. - $300+ to replace all 4. We like the printer, but I'm looking for another as I can't justify the price of the printer when the toner is more than the printer, by a large margins.
