Summary: Was (formerly) an OK printer in my opinion. Only big complaint is that when I purchased a new laptop with win 7 x64, discovered that Cannon did not create drivers for this printer. MF5700 is supposed to be a hack substitute, but I couldn't get it working, perhaps since Cannon recently updated. So if you are sure you will use old windows, and not upgrade to their latest poor product offering, then this printer is not too bad.
Summary: This is a great printer/copier/scanner, for all the reasons others give here. Easy to operate, performs flawlessly and at a decent speed, scans easily without any fuss, and isn't a toner hog. The only problem with it is that it does not work with the 64-bit version of Windows 7. I just bought a new desktop and found to my dismay that I could not a driver for the MF3110 because of this issue.
Summary: I have used the MF3110 for several years and have enjoyed the laser printing qualities. However, I just bought a new computer with Win 7 (64 bit) and per conversation Canon this printer will not run with this OS, nor do they plan to update the drivers.
Summary: Have had a Canon MF 3111 for close to three years and I love it. Yes the paper tray is just a bit flimsy. We are talking about a sub $200 printer here. Has a couple of its own unique limitations but this has been an amazingly reliable crisp and cheap printer for a long time. At the price we paid we expected a machine much less than this. Only have one complaint. We cannot get a driver for Windows 7 64 bit.
Summary: I wanted to let anyone know my experience. I have had this product since 2005. It has never failed me. I use it at home with my husband's small handyman business. We print invoices and letters. I print everything for the children. I scan and copy. I love this product and for the money, I am very pleased. I would most definitely buy another one.
Summary: Okay printer for the money. It has been frustrating at times since when leaving it on for extended periods of time the printer experiences frequent paper jams. In fact, at times the printer go into a paper jam mode even when a single sheet of paper has not even been pulled out of the paper tray.

Summary: I would say it jams only a little more frequently than I'd expect, which is mildly annoying, but overall this is a great printer for the price, especially with the ability to create pdf documents included. The image/print quality is good. We use this as our main office printer and scanner and probably print 50-100 sheets a day.
Summary: I had a crappy Epson inkjet printer (which I happily threw in the garbage!). If I didn't use it for a while, the nozzles would clog up. It was a piece of garbage nuisance. Although this Canon does not have color (it does scan in color though) I LOVE this thing. Truthfully, even though the pictures it prints are black and white, they blow the color Epson inkjet pics out of the water. It's not small (which is the only negative), but the QUALITY and SPEED are amazing.
Summary: a 5 star rating is admittedly very high, but this multifunction machine merits them all on the basis of value. I am truly dumbfounded by the quality and features you get for such a low price. There is no catch, it is the real deal. Speedy, high quality black and white laser prints and a very capable scanner. Just what is needed for the SOHO environment. It replced my old NEC 870 printer which was a workhorse for 7.5 years before dying.
