Pros: Small Footprint, fast print speed
Cons: Difficult to use, unreliable
We use this printer all the time in the office. The setup was easy enough and it has all of the basic requirements. For the last 2 years this copier has worked just well enough to stay out of the scrap heap. The printer is needy, in that for every action that could normally be conducted just from the computer, it requires you to confirm settings on the unit itself. The feeder will often grab multiple sheets and although it does not jam, it does result in the need to confirm the copies were all made. It seems that the printer/copier has finally given up on us in that it is registering a paper jam although no paper is present, which is too cliche for my liking. I've been quite happy with Canon products in the past, this one has been a hassle from day 1.

Pros: everything you need in one machine, optional high capacity toner cartrage available
Cons: some funtions are cumbersom to use, setup can be confusing, 250 sheet paper tray
Great features exactly what I wanted but using features can be cumbersome, too many choices per button on control panel, can be confusing. Tech set up well worth the money. Set up is not designed for novice, can be confusing for even a seasoned user. This is the only reason I gave it 4 stars. Worst part is setup for the multi-use Tray, and on demand duplex copying. Duplex printing can be controlled in print settings. Multi-use Tray is not automatic and paper size has to be set for each print job. You can set a default paper size but the default has to be turned off if you need to change paper size ( print envelopes) then you have to reset default paper size.
Wanted a 500 sheet paper tray was told there was an optional 2nd 250 sheet tray, I'm still looking for it.

i have used two Canon multi function devices over many years. The latest, this model, repeat previous experiences by adding a complex and un-intuitive set of software and drivers to support completely mundane and expected tasks like scanning, printing and faxing. In both LAN and USB setups the printer setup is lengthy, burdensome and problematic. For technical folks like me I can eventually figure it out, but I can't imaging a novice or less technical person trying to figure out the setup. More recently, upon updating from Windows 8 to 8.1 the entire functionality for scanning and printing over LAN was lost.
Canon, if you are listening, these are pointless obstacles in this day and age. Fix and simplify the software that drives your otherwise well functioning and properly priced products.

Pros: reliable, durable, fast print speed, easy to use
Cons: Difficult Setup
The functionality and quality of the printer is excellent 4-5 stars for sure. The setup process, having to download multiple software programs to use, and heavy drivers, etc., makes this a complicated setup. This is not an plug and play system. But if you can follow instructions, and have some tech intuition, then you will enjoy the product.
