Glad I Ignored the bad reviews!

I was nervous about this due to bad review saying the print was light and the wifi was hard to set up. Especially when an alleged IT networking professional claimed to have issues, and after a headache setting up a Canon Color wireless laser print my mother recently bought.
The hardest part of the set up is finding where the drivers downloaded to. I downloaded everything from Canon’s website since my XPS doesn’t have an optical drive. Once you find the folder, it’s easy.
Once you installed the driver, you run the wireless set up Utility.
1. You connect your computer with the supplied cable (yeah, this included the printer cable, which never happens anymore!)
2. Your wireless network appears on your computer and you select the one you want.
3. It automatically sends the password from your computer and presto, it’s set up.
Printing has been flawless with the wireless, and the print quality is just as good as the professional laser we have at work. Total set up was under 10 minutes, including the unboxing.
You cannot go wrong for this price, which in itself was a real bargain. Bonus… there is a little arm that pulls out of the top printer chute to keep the paper from falling. I learned this when papers when one by one flying to the floor, which made my dog go nuts and for a fun show. So bonus pet toy included.

Canon was the manufacturer of the GREAT Apple LaserWriter II, which introduced and popularized laser printing to the desktop printer market decades ago and became its undisputed leader. My LaserWriter II served me admirably for many, many years (well over 20 years), until an inexpensive Samsung made it wiser to replace the aging LaserWriter than repair it.
This Canon imageCLASS LBP6230dw Wireless Laser Printer is essentially a compact, much faster version of the Apple LaserWriter line. Its wireless capabilities work flawlessly, and it retains its Ethernet connection as well. Printing quality is superb. I couldn’t be more pleased.
At just under $70 this printer is simply a steal. *****
