Excerpt: Good multi-use machine but incomprehensible manuals. Not intuitive to use- need manuals initially and manuals are incomplete. E.g. no indexing, and it shouldn't take 4 separate sets of documentation to explain all the features. Just give me one comprehensive PDF with everything in it!

Summary: Bought this to replace Brother multifunction which started to fail mostly as an office printer and scanner. * If you are installing on Windows 7 do not use the install CD - you need to download the latest MF Toolbox from Canon's website. Install that first then the drivers (also Canon website download). To install the MF Toolbox you'll need to note the download directory then locate and run the Setup.exe file.
Summary: When this works, it is a fine printer and scanner. But the problem is that almost every time I need it, something doesn't work. Either it has lost connection to the network, a glitch requires a restart, or I must leave my office to hit a button on the remote printer. It is almost never a smooth operation. Due to the aggravation factor, I deducted stars. Please note, the people at Canon customer service are great..

Summary: We have owned our printer for just shy of 2 months. We use ours for general home use and have really liked the printer itself thus far. However, the 3 star rating is because we have already depleted the "STARTER" toner cartridge and we haven't even gone through a single ream of paper yet. So after speaking with a support technician, let me explain some things that we didn't fully understand before purchasing.
Scan is taking a long time, if double sided scanning is important, consider another printer

Summary: Overall, I do like this printer. I got this all in one printer from Amazon for $180. For the price of it, the unit is definitely worth it. The scan takes about 25-30 seconds per page. If you have a double sided document that you like to scan, well that will take about 1 minute per page. What happened to the buffer? How come the system can't scan to the memory and then transfer over the network?
