I called Canon and asked for help but they told me that they could only support the drivers but not support them in any way.

I chose Canon because I had previous good experience with their products.

Speed, at 35 ppm, is what sets this unit apart in a sea of B&W multifunctions with duplex and Wi-Fi connectivity. In real word the speed was more like 25 ppm but the first page is out within 7 seconds - very nice. Real word Duplex speed is 12-15 ppm. In a busy office, speed saves a lot of employee time. But the machine is not user friendly and the time savings it giveth with speed it taketh back with more time in changing the settings and using it. The print quality is acceptable but not as good as my Samsung 1630 and Brother 9840 printers.

Here are some of the annoying things about this multifunction:

1. It came with default setting of silent dial tone and we could not figure out if it was really sending faxes and it took a call to customer service to change that setting.
2. To fax or copy in duplex, you have to change setting each time and cannot set a default duplex mode.
3. To receive duplex fax, we had to call to customer service to change the setting buried in menus.
4. Intensity of black color in print output cannot be changed to save the toner and there is no toner saver mode, or at least I have not been able to figure out so far.
5. To scan, first you have to initiate scanning by pressing a button on the machine and then go into the software on your computer to start scanning - very time consuming and annoying.

In the end I have very mixed feelings about this machine. Returning a heavy item like that is not easy either. So think carefully before you buy it because difficulty of using the machine takes away the time you save in speed.

This item is fast, works well with duplexing, but is not automatic with its scanning vs printing.
When the computer asks to scan, I must push buttons the the Canon to get it to go into FAX mode.
It is a lot pricey on toner at the local office stores and is hard to find discount toner, due to it being new, and it goes into energy saving mode, thus having to press two buttons to make a copy.
I don't rate this machine very high. I have seen a lot better.

This copier is in use at a day care and runs on average 4000 copies a month. I have gone through 20,000 copies and the copier has worked tirelessly and without a single page getting jammed to date. Very pleased with the results - given what the day care was paying at the local kinkos - the copier paid for itself within the first three months. I also use after market toner and the copier works with it without complaints.

Just days ago I purchased one of these. Upon arrival I installed the drivers to the O/S (Windows 7 64 bit) and firmware update to the printer. Note: All of the updates came directly from Canon's website, so they are the latest and not older updates on the supplied CD that shipped with the unit.

I followed the firmware update procedure (a PDF) to the letter, and when it was complete, the Menu User Interface on the printer and also on it's HTTP Web interface were no longer functional: That is, menu items no longer appeared. You could scroll up and down and see the gray scroll bar, but no words appeared on the menu, so it was useless. You could no longer interact with the printer.

Now, before initiating a return to Amazon, I called Canon to see if they could assist me. I got a level-1 tech who could not, indicating that a problem with the panel display required a replacement via their exchange program. I was hoping for something a little more substantive (which I describe below). Of course, I just re-boxed it (a huge hassle) and initiated a return to Amazon. This was annoying, but stuff happens sometimes.

Fine. The return to Amazon was actually an one-for-one exchange, so a few days later I received my second one of these units. "Let me give this another chance", I said. Since the O/S drivers were already installed from my first go-around with this printer, the only thing I needed to do was update this printer's firmware. Again, I followed the WARNING-LADEN pdf procedure to the letter (...

I have both the 4890dw and the 5950dw. The 4890 is a little weak on build quality, so if you want a good all around multifunction and you will only print on standard letter size or envelopes, I would choose this over the 4890 for about $100 more. My 4890 had a plastic paper output roller break, and Canon was very nice about sending a replacement machine. This 5950 has a sturdier build, and the print quality and speed are wonderful.

If this is your only printer, then you may want to print different size items, from envelopes to file labels, to address labels, and priority mail labels. The post office changes the format of its labels every so often, so I have to create new formats for new labels. There are all sorts of other forms that are neither the size of standard letter paper nor standard envelopes. For convenience, I have been starting with a letter size document in the word processor and just changing the margins, etc. so that the printed area will be in the right place for whatever paper or label I put in the printer. I just want to send a letter size document to the printer and have it print the text in the right place on an envelope, label, or other form. The Brother does this fine. I just pop a label or envelope into the Brother manual feed. The Brother has auto detect and priority, which means that whatever is in the manual feed will print without making any other changes. I simply hit print and it will print onto a label or envelope or whatever is in the manual feed. The Canon 4890 has auto detect and priority, which means that whatever is in the manual feed will print. The 5950 does not do auto detect or priority, so if you want to print from the manual slot on the 5950, you have to tell the computer to print from the manual tray, and then change it back later.
