Summary: I am very impressed with this printer. I am using it in a small office situation and it has handled everything that I have thrown against it. Copies, scans, faxes and computer printing. The energy saving status is nice. A little complicated at first but instructions are straight forward and easy to follow. The price was GREAT and is doing everything that a printer that was suggested to me by a salesman from the local office supply store for a thousand dollars more.
Excerpt: So I used to own an HP all in one printer, very similar to this one. I gave it high marks, and it deserved it. However, it has died on me after about 3 years or so of service, and after reading up on the model, I am considering myself lucky that the unit lasted that long (but again, it was great while it was running). Anyway, I needed a quick replacedment multi-function laser printer that supported network.
Summary: I had a Canon MF5700 which I purchased right after Hurricane Katrine destroyed my office. This printer was the work horse of our small office (3 people). That printer still works great, but we now needed network scanning capability. The new Canon MF4500 is just like my old Canon, but with network scanning. It also has a smaller footprint. So far I'm satisfied. The price was good, and the printer performs like I expected.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Excellent Print Quality, Fast Operation, Reliable
Summary: I got the Canon MF4570dn to replace the HP 4050N printer. I now have a scanner, copier, fax, and printer in a footprint that is slightly smaller than the HP printer. Packaging: Excellent. Nothing less that what I would expect from top consumer products companies. It comes packaged to survive a lot of shocks in transit. Construction: The HP's construction was industrial grade. The Canon, in comparison, feels a little flimsy.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Operation
Summary: No more ink to replace. My wife can make all the copies and print emails she wants. Scanner functions works fine and direct into the computer. First printed page is fast before you reach for it. Plan on getting one for the office.
