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.
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.
Excerpt: I focused on a machine with an automatic duplexer but it's become a "be careful what you wish for" as it took a while to set up and determine what was making it duplex even though the printer duplex button was "off".
Excerpt: So far I love it......except........there is a problem with the fax machine. I have had to call Canon tech at least six times and it is repaired then the same problem happens again. Not good when I rely on my fax machine for work a LOT. Tech is easy to get a hold of....
Summary: UPDATE: I have found a way to make the unit work with some functionality in Win 8.1. It's necessary to completely clean your system of all traces of the drivers, then do a clean reinstall of the Windows 8 drivers from Win 8.1.
comes up short scanning multiple pages into one document

Summary: This is a good printer overall .. fast, quick, nice images, but where it falls short is in scanning. It scans single pages fine with no issues, however, if you have to scan a document containing multiple pages, it just doesn't happen.
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.
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.
