Summary: I am continually amazed at the great improvements can and makes in multifunction devices. In addition to this machine, I recently bought an MF4890dw, the successor to this unit. Both of the units have been miraculous. I used to buy multi-functions from that company that begins with an H, but Canon has blown away all the competition as far as I'm concerned.
Summary: Much more aesthetically pleasing than the equivalent HP product. Solidly made and compact. The big weakness is the wireless scanning. It will scan a single sheet perfectly happily, but cannot cope with five or ten sheets. After a few sheets, it announces that it cannot communicate with my PC, even though it is right next to it. It normally takes three or four attempts to scan a ten page document.
Summary: I don't know how I got along with just a plain Laserjet before getting this. It is a full-featured printer and copier, and a middling-but-adequate scanner. I haven't tried using the fax yet, as I mostly use eFax. It does have lots of options, including the toner-saving setting that I mostly use when printing off the internet. Have yet to exhaust the initial, small toner cartridge. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE that it is wireless!
Summary: This printer works good and was a replacement for a similar printer whose network card died. It was a bit challenging to put on my network. The Netgear router and my security configuration could be contributing, so I cannot put all the blame Canon. The point is, a user without network security (crazy) would likely have no problems. Anyway, after a few hours, it was functioning well on the network. About a month ago it suddenly stopped working on the network.
Summary: As a graduate student, I needed a wireless laser printer, that would save me money compared to printing at the library. Setup with Mac was relatively painless - it took me an hour or so. The only thing to note is to be careful with removing all the colored sealing tape on the various parts. The wireless function is awesome, as I like to work in various parts of the apartment. Overall, this is a solid, fast, quiet printer and scanner (I don't really use the fax function).
Summary: I needed a wireless laser printer, scanner, fax and love my new Canon. We set it up on both a PC and a Mac without any major hitches (you have to manually download the drivers for the Mac). It performs beautifully and I especially love the 2-sided printing. Yea for saving paper!
Summary: Toner is $11 per cartridge, about 1000 prints. My second generation of Canon machines. Live it. You cannot find a full feature machine like this for less. Dont waste money with anything else. I have owned more than 10 canon MF printers. This rocks.
Summary: Amazon's price was really good, the product came quickly, and performed perfectly. Canon Lasers imageCLASS MF4570dw Wireless Monochrome Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax (5259B007AA) I already had an MF 4450 (the little brother version that only prints 1-sided and has no wireless connectivity) at my vacation location and knew it had really superior print quality. Forget about those ratings that say this family of copier/printer/scanner/faxes have only so-so graphics.
