Better than inkjet for documents and labels
As a long time ink jet user, I needed something I could print better documents and shipping labels. I installed it on a Windows Vista PC, and on a iMac OSX 10.6.8 and it was easy installation on both machines. Being sure to get all the packing material out was tricky, and when I turned the printer on, I wasn't sure what the noise was about. I'm guessing it needed to heat up or something. I was worried I'd left packing material in there somewhere. Noise shut off after about a minute, and now just whirrs a little before printing. For the low price, this little machine gives excellent quality.

mac user. New with toner
It took me three days to have it printer. I tried every suggestion. My mac kept saying not toner or paper and it would send the file to print and nothing would print. I was ready to send it back when i decided to take the toner out of the printer one more time and look inside in the back then i saw a orange plastic frame, i pulled out and the printer came to life! I spend 10 hours trying to make it work!
Canon please send a manual with words or a big sign saying attached to it saying we need to remove it.
It is inside the printer in the very back!
God bless you every one!

FYI: You need the UK firmware if you have OS X Mavericks. Google is your best friend.
The printer is a pretty good bargain. Looks aesthetically pleasing. It's compact and doesn't take much room. It's quiet. Overall good quality.

Works with MAC
I noted that another reviewer said it would not work with his MAC. This was not my experience at all. I downloaded the drivers and it was all plug and play. I use an early 2008 MacBook. This has been a good printer. Inexpensive black and white printing. Just what I needed.
