Well, we've arrived here in 2013 and I've purchased a printer that is superior in every respect to the old LaserJet, and equal at least to the past two or three other desktop LaserJets I've owned more recently. And this time it cost me well under three figures. Wow.
The very best features of the LBP-6000 are its value and its size. The LBP-6000 is currently the cheapest laser printer made by a company you've actually heard of. And, it's tiny. Though bigger than a toaster, it isn't much bigger than two toasters set side-by-side.
Print quality is just as good as the output from any other reasonably-priced laser printer. Text is solid and clear while images are well balanced and attractive.
The printer body is well built. The paper tray has simple but effective and strong paper guides. I've yet to have a paper-jam, so I can't speak to the ease of un-jamming the printer, but it is very easy to open the toner compartment and doing so reveals essentially the entire paper path, so no problems expected.
I would not describe the printer as quiet, but the volume is not overly distracting.
Printing speed is fair - and for the price, it's absolutely amazing. The quoted 19 PPM seems entirely accurate. There is a slight delay of 7-8 seconds between instructing the computer to print and when the printer actually begins. This delay is longer than what I've come to expect from other laser printers I've used recently, but again, it's a matter of a few seconds. And for the price... who cares.
Mac Owners Beware: I have docked one point from this review due to very complicated and poorly supported method for installing this printer in Mac OSX. Only my Mac with the most recent version of Mac OSX installed them correctly. You must download and install only the very most up-to-date version of the Canon CAPT application which (important here) matches the version of Mac OSX you use. See the Canon support website for those files. The disk packaged with the printer is for Windows ONLY.
Once the CAPT application and drivers are installed, follow these directions closely:

1. System Preference > Print and Fax
2. Click on "+" to add printer.
3. You will see LBP6000/LBP6018 in the box that appears. Ignore it. Instead, click on "More printers..." in the bottom left corner of the same box.
4. Another box will appear with a dropdown menu at the top, giving you two choices. Choose "CANON USB (CUPS CAPT)," which will give you the model number again. Click on it, then "Add," and voila!
from (boochap) on their Discussions and I wanted to share it to save everybody else's brain from hurting.
1. First you will need to go to Canon website to download latest software: Link is below to make it easy, copy and paste into web browser. Should be 3.66 (release 6/14)
Once the software is installed (only takes a few minutes) make sure the printer is on and connected to MAC computer. Then go to:
1. System Preference > Print and Fax
2. Click on "+" to add printer. (You will see it under the printer icons on the left side)
3. LBP6000/LBP6018 will appear in the box. Don't select it instead click on "More printers..." in the bottom left corner of the same box.
4. Another box will appear with a drop down menu at the top, giving you two choices. Choose "CANON USB (CUPS CAPT)," This will give you the model number again. Click on it, then "Add,"
5. Once you add the printer restart your computer.
6. Everything should work now and I hope this save you hours of frustration
