Summary: I bought this to replace an old Canon L90, but after 4 months I am back to using the L90 to send faxes. Works Ok as a printer and for incoming faxes, but paper output tray is small and cannot handle a heavy load.
Summary: I have had this machine for 6 years and it is still cranking out and sending faxes well. You can find it now for about $129. Canon just released the Faxphone L190 which usually means remaining inventory of the L170 will be eliminated since the new model is only slightly higher in price than the list...
Summary: I broke the last one I had which was over 6 years old. I liked it so much I bought another. Of course I had 1 3/4 ink cartridges left that I didn't want to waste. They last a long time in this machine too!
Summary: I purchased the canon fax machine because of the brand name, it is known for its good quality. It was fairly easy to set up. I found it to be bigger than what I wanted, but it the bigger one was the more efficient one of the two I had to choose from.
Summary: Every fax machine we've ever owned had the same problem; they wouldn't feed outgoing faxes or they would stick together and all go through at once. One day I asked a fellow businessperson about this and she recommended this particular unit so we tried it.
Summary: Comments about Canon FAXPHONE L170 Multifunction Printer: We bought the machine for fax only. We use it as a stand alone product. It was so perfect for what we needed we purchased a second to replace a working fax because of the speed, clarity, and overall performance of the machine.
Pros: Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Great Print Quality, Reliable
