Summary: I think this is about 3 years old, maybe 4 and we still use this and are happy. I have gone through more toner than I can count over the years and the only repair I have had is something I broke.
Summary: set the mf4270 up USB on an XP machine to get all the scanning functions, took about 15 minutes. software is very basic but it all works. scanning, faxing and printing are all very, very fast. print is crisp. machine is really quiet in all modes.
Summary: I used to have a Dell printer and had many problems with it--especially with paper jams. Dell Service was horrible. I did a lot of research online before buying a new one. The Canon MF4270 is so much better than my Dell printer. It is faster, quieter and doesn't jam.
Directly connected to a PC, this printer is a winner

Summary: This printer replaced our old reliable HP 4L. It was time to upgrade to something that could do duplex printing. Finally there is a reasonably priced duplex printer available and the Canon MF4270 is it. The other big selling point was that it could do simple copying without involving the computer.
