Summary: I am disappointed overall. The scanning does not work for window7 64 just for 32. Mac can fax but must use USB cable, and if you use the autofeeder, you see blank, need to put it on the flat mode, one by one. I don't know why the mac can't print, saying that "no recipient list added." The issue does not happen to window. Well, overall this one is a mess now. I bought it in hope of replacing all mine printers now but it it just can't.
Beautiful laser print/copies but SCANNER DOES NOT WORK WITH MAC running OS X - major problem if you purchased for scanning

Summary: After a bit of research I purchased this Canon 4370dn for use in a mixed mac/windows office (predominately macs). All ads and features show dual compatibility. The price was quite good and I was interested to see it in motion. Installed the latest print/scan/fax drivers directly from the Canon site. The print test performed beautifully (albeit a rather slow start-up, slower than my 4 year old Brother all-in-one).
Summary: The printer starts warnings about low ink while there is still quite a bit left in the cartridge. Worst part of this is that while in low ink warning mode it will not go to sleep, wasting a lot of energy. It finally quits working and I can see that we could have printed several hundred more pages before truly running out of ink.
Summary: I decided to go with a Canon all-in-one after being disappointed in HP copiers. It was a mistake. First the good. It copies and scans well with a document feeder which is helpful. That's about all I can say about the good. The bad??? Let's start with a tiny toner cartridge priced at $90 a pop. It doesn't last very long, seems about 1/4 the duration of my old HP 4000 which is still running after 9(?) years. The menu setup is awkward and cumbersome.
Summary: I was looking for a flatbed multifunction laser printer that I could plug into an apple wireless router and print from a macbook pro wirelessly. This Canon seemed like it would fit the bill (price was nice as well!). This setup would be used in a small 1 person office. I have a similar setup at home with an HP multifunction laser (it just isn't a flatbed). I thought about buying the HP flatbed, but decided to give Canon a shot (based mostly on price).
Summary: Ok, it will work with a Mac, pretty much out of the box. I loaded the installation disc first, then setup the printer for my network, then added the printer to my Mac. I agree with the good things that other people say, except, I bought a network laser printer to use on a network. If you are networking, you can't use the multifunction options on your Mac. You have to be plugged into USB. That is not acceptable, especially for MacBook users.
