Pros: My wife works from home (medical billing) & I purchased this for her home office. I caught it on sale for $149.00 and I am very satisfied, as is she. It prints, copies, scans & faxes. It's not loud and the print quality is very good, prints fast.
Cons: I have noticed that when using the auto feeder, the sheets do not always feed in exactly straight and this results in a slightly crooked image. However, this isn't a $800 - $2000 unit either.
Summary: Not sure how to get higher scan resolution than 600 dpi like the box advertised. Need CD to install driver for shared printing. All in all, the best value for those looking for a sheet fed scanner and fax machine. With aftermarket tonor it is cheap enough to use as a printer.
Pros: Reasonable price after rebate. $30 toner from tonerinstock.com. Cool duplex printing but not scanning. It scans and faxes. Flatbed scans are fast. It doesn't need ink to scan like many non-laser units.
Cons: As I was warned the sheet feeder yields crooked scans. The scan interface is quirky and the default settings are not as nice as the Brother MFC240C it replaced. Noisy. Network scanning limited to 300 dpi - use USB scanning for 600 dpi.
Summary: Yes the software could definitely use some work especially in the network scanning area. That said this is still a very good product, I have not come across a comparable AIO printer with duplex printing and network connectivity anywhere
Pros: What a great printer, sure there are deficiencies but they are NOT deal killers. I have had this printer for about 8 months and after I read the very comprehensive manuals (I mean VERY comprehensive, something sadly lacking in todays products) the printer works almost flawessly. Duplex printing i...
Cons: Initially the printer constantly locked up when in standby mode, I contacted tech.support who suggested that I take it to a repair center they could not reproduce the problem. I then found out that the lockup only occurred when the network was connected. Another call to tech. support 2nd level su...
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.
Summary: happy with this laser printer would buy again if we had to.
Pros: Easy set up, Compatible with our PC and Mac we have a small business and for our money this does the trick. Durable, no problems so far. Toner is only like 60-70$ at Costco. Prints quick. We like the darker color of the printer. We first bought the Canon 4350D Laser for our shipping center it als...
Cons: -seems that the toner goes quick, I guess you don't realize how much printing you do till it's out.
Summary: It is a good hardware to have in the office if you don't plan on using scanner feature. It is NOT even comparable to standalone multifunction printers from Cannon (those big ones you see in people copy things on). It has good printing speed for medium office load.
Pros: Easy to install. Just run setup installation and it finds your networked printer by itself, which can be limiting or beneficial. Has alot of different settings inside for networking which is a good plus.
Cons: Its got alot of small cons here and there. - Scan will only work if computer has drivers/software to request scan via usb or network. - When installing drivers no way to input network address to skip search. - Cannot be located using Windows software when adding a network printer (without drivers...
Summary: Has IPv6 support. When I say it does not come with scanning software, it comes with software that enables your computer to see the scanner. You have to have some program that can grab the image from the scanner. I could not get XP to use the Windows Scanner and Camera Wizard.
Pros: Not inkjet or Color laser. Network support for scanning and faxing from your computer. Well laid out front panel on the unit.
Cons: Comes with starter toner. Does not scan legal paper on glass (will in autofeeder). Does not come with scanning software.
Summary: I decided to purchase the MF4370dn from Amazon for home office use after being impressed with Canon's D1180's network performance which I and others use at work. I configured the 4370 for PC network operation only and have 5 days of use. The setup was fairly easy with regard to the basics.
Summary: Network scanning is slower than USB, but not as slow as other reported, perhaps 30sec/page. Bought this on sale at Newegg, good deal at the sale price.
Pros: OK, So i've read all the reviews, and updated my drivers and all that. -Fast printer -Does not choke on "large" PDF files like my 10year old serial port printer. -network ready
Cons: -my main gripe for not having 5eggs is the scanning/copying of pages from the AutoDocumentFeeder come out crooked, approximately .25" lower on one side. Printing of documents from computers comes out straight. -UI menu is a bit tricky to setup, need to keep the manual around to go through the steps
