Cannon printer review:
Before this review I had no experience with Canon laser inkjet printers but had experience with a couple major name brands that make color laser inkjet printers. Because of unfamiliarity with brand I must say my expectations were not high. This printer way over-performed my expectations.
What the product did well was interact quickly with my laptop wirelessly. Usually the que's on the printers vary the amount of time to actual printing from when command is given. The quick response and printing too were pleasant surprises. Life is busy, don't want to wait around for que's to push through. Another feature that worked well was the touch pad. It too responded promptly and was very intuitive. Seldom do I read direction all the way through before trying to see if I already know how or if plug and play will open the install and other features. The keypad was simple, concise, and natural.
The only assembly really was installing ink and that was effortless. There were direction on top of box on how best to open box, 6 little pictures, made it so simple instead of breakout a knife and opening only to realize the better way after. The comic like direction captured my attention only because I thought, “Why are there direction on the outside of box?” They fooled me by offering a Cannon comic mini comic book!!
It is quite a heavy product which I would say is a limitation in a small way. Was going to keep right on desk but didn't want to fill up the amount of space or really rest object on my desk in case it causes unusual wear and tear on my nice desk. I might be a little to cautious due to loving my desk!
Replacement ink is the same price as my other comparable laser jet that I already owned. That is good to know and both can be purchased online.
Altogether I would recommend this printer for a small enterprise. It will be one of a few used in a 14 person office that is mostly a satellite office for our tutors working in the area. I was given this printer to try and review, it has helped to facilitate more productive for which I am grateful.
