Pros Ease of use, great print quality, good value, overall easy set-up.
Cons Lack of printer drivers for Mac platform or instructions as to where to get them.
Summary Just received the multifunction printer today and printed out the first few test copies. The quality of the prints and overall ease of setup has been great...except one hitch. Mac users are left to figure out where to get drivers. Fortunately, I've done this kind of thing enough I was aware that drivers are usually made available by manufacturers on their websites. The included CD that came in the box has all the drivers for Windows, however nowhere in the quick start guide or manual are there instructions for the Mac user. Part of reason I like Canon for photo and print purposes, besides their overall attention to detail and quality, is their ease of use with the Mac platform. Canon dropped the ball on this one. An otherwise easy to read and simple guide makes this glaring omission...which I'm sure has been a source of frustration for many.
Pros Easy to set up with Windows. Print, scan and copy functions work extremely well and easily. Got mine at CostCo and love the deal!
Cons Would have liked wireless capability and two sided printing. 3500 pages per toner is not the best rate out there, but not bad.
Summary Like it a lot, but have kept my other Laser printer for pamphlet printing. This one's a mite slow when color printing, but the end product is excellent.
Pros Prints are good. Color is great
Cons Having with mac . Would like to control the printer as the Windows does. Cannot control BW output when printing from Mac. There is a lag when the printer is on sleep mode. The instructions are windows based.
Summary Please give us more Controls through mac!!! Still not able to figure out fax confirmation through printed paper only sound. I had read that it was Mac compatible yet missing more mac friendly features. I do not think I would have purchased printer having known limited features with mac. Else I got a good price through best direct in canada. Had no problem setting with Mac. Just make sure you download drivers from Canon before. So far good will need more time to figure out setting up preferences from small screen... I hope.
