When buying the item do be aware that Cannon often do a cash back scheme with this printer which in my case amounted to £50.
This printer is designed for a small business or heavy household use. It is one of the cheapest laser printers that are likely to have all the features that a required. The networking is very simple to set up and works by pluging an ethernet cable from the printer to the Wifi router. An app can be put on an ipad to use with this printer, this is not Apple printer but a Cannon app. The duplexer works well and a choice is given at the time of printing. The paper tray happily holds half a ream of paper. There is also a paper tray add on if extra capacity or different colours/ qualities of paper are required.
Speed: Speed is good though it can take 20 seconds to warm up from switching on. It may also stop part way through the printing job for cleaning for 20 seconds.
Print quality: For black text the printer has no difficulty, text is clear and deep black. Then printer can struggle with colour, in particular with red. This may cause a problem if you are looking to print pictures to a high quality.
Conclusion: A well equipped printer that is likely to serve the vast majority of printing jobs. The purchase price is good value, the starter inks do soon run out and obtaining cheap genuine Cannon inks is not always easy. With larger print jobs the printer can emit a smell which is beyond what is expected and is more pungent than other printers I have encountered.
