Pros: reliable, durable, High Quality Output, fast print speed
Cons: scan to pc
I am using this printer on a Mac running Mavericks. I absolutely love the printer all bar one feature which is scanning from the computer. I have to send the scan to the Mac from the printer and I can't just rescan without going to the printer. Its a minor niggle as I actually prefer to mail scans directly from the print these days. Its a feature that we have on our ImageRunner at work and I love using it at home. I use the MF feeder at the front for envelopes and have had no problems with standard and even custom sized envelopes and I can easily override paper sizes from the front panel. I can understand why some people do not like the setup. It is pretty comprehensive and lets you set pretty much every aspect of the printer, there has to be several hundred options but this is not a $100 printer, it is a powerful configurable machine and the web interface is well laid out and logical. Some setting do require a degree of understanding on networks which I have so whilst they may appear daunting to most users they really aren't and most users will never want to touch them anyway. Take your time and read the online docs and you will understand everything. I am no FAX expert but was able to reading the manual configure everything to work perfectly over my Vonage VOIP service.
I really love this printer and I love that it has power saving as it is installed in my home.

Bought high end printer and cannot install driver. Suggest other brands. Printing may not be as good but they work and Canon does not. Last Canon purchase. Anyone want a MF 8500 C cheap

IT IS A HIGH QUALITY PRINTER WITH A PRETTY GOOD SCANNER AND MANY FEATURES. HOWEVER, THE SET UP WAS A NIGHTMARE. THE USER INTERFACE IS FREQUENTLY CUMBERSOME, ESPECIALLY PRINTING ENVELOPES FROM A MAC.

Pros: Easy Setup, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
I bought this based on other reviews that it is an excellent small business solution, and I would have to agree. I have experience working with other brands in my previous careers and I have to say that this machine was very easy to set up and figure out how to use. The flow of the instructions in the manual were a bit odd, but not enough to make you think too much. The print quality is more than adequate for 99% of day to day business documents I would say.
I purchased this printer mainly for its ability to scan multiple duplex pages to PDF for my practice. It does exactly what I wanted but my only complaint about the machine thus far is that the mechanism that pulls the paper through the auto-feeder is slightly off alignment causing a visible white angled border on my scanned documents, but not enough to cause any problems for what I'm using it for. That is why I only give the quality 4/5 stars.

Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
After squeezing the life out of yet another inkjet printer after only 2yrs, our office decided to bite the bullet & look into investing a couple more dollars for the sake of saving some serious sanity. We needed something that would be absolutely reliable at ALL of the functions we would need- wireless printing, copying, faxing, & double-sided capabilities. We were immediately impressed with this machine's speed & straight-forward easy functions. With half of our office being technologically handicapped, an easy-to-use no-fuss machine has been a huge time saver on all of us, and the printing is always gorgeous & perfect, even photos- which are important to our business. The multipurpose tray for specialty papers is so intuitive & efficient for printing out certificates & shipping labels. The wireless signal is always perfect, and was very easy to set up with no-fuss driver installations on all of our computers. We also love that we can control the printer's scanning capacities either from our computers or directly from the printer, & create .pdf files with ease. This truly has been a dream machine & we're anticipating a long-term relationship with this one!

Pros: reliable, Easy Setup, durable, Small Footprint, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
Our office needed an additional unit to satisfy our workspace. After working with this unit over the last week we ordered 2 more to replace our existing units. This units abilities are second to none. High quality color copies, dual sided features, wireless, with a very user friendly user panel for the price, it's UNBEATABLE! We print about 2000b/w copies a week on each unit and 500 color and these units have been extremely reliable and efficient. Bravo Canon, Bravo!
