Broken in four months
The printer worked fine for 3 1/2 months. Then, it started to jam. Then, it started making a clunking sound when it printed, and the print alignment went completely berserk.
Unfortunately, it only has a 90-day warranty. It made it to about 110 days. The shame is, I just bought replacement ink for this thing that I will never use.
Bottom line: we did nothing to mistreat this printer, and it failed. I realize it's an economy model, but I expected more than four months out of this machine.

This inexpensive printer works OK. However, the software which is included is a veritable nightmare. The printer is OK, but software which is needed is totally inadequate.

Good Printer, Cheap Price
I have owned other Canon printers in the past. I am not surprised that this one does what I ask for. It does really good on my business cards and photos. I have had no problem on my word documents. My rubber mat helps quiet it. I have no problem scanning and saving drawing to my computer as PDF files. Some items I scan, I run through Photoshop. This is a excellent product. The initial cartridge like other machines, is not very big, but I purchased the 240XL and it has lasted awhile. It may not be a Laserjet, but I do not have the toner mess. I had no problem setting it up or using it because it doesn't take a rocket scientist to hook up a USB wire, plug it in and install the software. No initial head alignment was needed. Just install the cartridges after you remove the packing material. Others may have problems but those problems can be caused by their computer hardware or software.

Not worth the "great price"
I would recommend spending an extra $60 - $75 for the upgraded canon. If you buy this, you basically buying an alright scanner. Every single page is coming out with misaligned sentences & not just a line or 2. I'm talking a good 20+ per page, where alot you cannot even read what is there. They give you the alignment tool which is easy to do, just does not work at correcting the problem at all.
