Summary: Ok, the saga is finally over. We received the original machine from "Vegasmark" (advise against buying from them) and it came out of the box groaning. Actually, every page thru the machine caused a load groan. Seller would not honor a return, as he said he had no more for an exchange. Told us to go to a Canon Service center. We did as requested, hoping for a quick turn-around.
Summary: The print quality is very good, makes quick copies, faxes and scans. The product is good value pricing but only through a reliable company such as Amazon. More than adequate for home use but for office use ??? Set up easy but identifying the printer to the computer is hard. Overall I would recommend but have not had it long enough to recommend for reliability. I think you can buy with confidence.
Summary: I purchased my Canon ImageCLASS MF4370dn from a local retailer when I had to suddenly move my home office and had business I needed to continue to do. As such I made use of FAX, scanner, copying, and printing. My home computers all run Linux and are networked on a gigabit network. I like that this laser printer is compact and has a modest footprint, stacking components up into a cube shape.
Summary: I bigger Better? When printer functionality is expanded exponentially to include document scanning to printer, to computer; Computer FAX, telephonic FAX's, and document copying, et.al then the answer is most probably, yes. Particularly when the printer is of the thermal image(ing) type, like this one, with a toner cartridge cycle rate in the 10s of thousands, Yes! I'm so happy to be out of ink at this moment!
Summary: I bought this two months ago when it was under 120 dollars, and I use it on Windows 7, XP, and Debian Linux networked PCs. Connected to my wireless router, it prints and scans wireless extremely well. So far, it has been a solid choice for a medium load home office. I see that a lot of the negative reviews are directed at Mac experiences/compatibility. Many of them are pretty conflicting though, so I'm willing to bet that it's more user inexperience or ignorance.
Summary: I got it for a good deal at $150. It does everything I need - printing, copying, faxing, and scanning. It also does duplexing (for such a compact printer)! Networking & setup is easy. I do not really need wireless networking, so wired networking works great for me. I also do not need color laser printing, so black & white works just fine. It scans over the network and both sides. It can even scan your hard-copied document into an editable PDF file.
I'm glad I read the other reviews before I bought this.

Summary: I'm glad I read them because I feel pretty prepared as I dive in to this printer. Like seeing a decent movie with wonderful reviews, if you expect this to be the answer to printing, you might be disappointed. Why would I buy something that gave potentially underwhelming reviews? 1. It had the features we wanted. As far as scanning, printing (double-sided/networked), and copying go this was the only printer in our price range. 2.
Summary: The printer is of good quality. It is a bit on the big side but it is a printer, scanner and a fax machine. Print quality is good. It does not need much time to warm up so it starts printing right away. The setup is difficult however. This printer will allow you to print over wifi and to scan over wifi. I got it to print over wifi but not to scan over wifi. However, I can scan with the usb cable. The software that the printer came with does not work on my Vista 7.
Networking? Questionable, but everything else is great.

Summary: Since returning to school, I've spent more than twice the price of this printer on ink cartridges for my little HP printer. When I finally found my brain and decided to invest in a laser, the name Canon was what drew me to this particular printer, and the price was what made me buy it. It ceased functioning via network shortly after I hooked it up, and I've seen other complaints about the same. HOWEVER, connecting via USB works just fine, at least with Windows XP.
