Summary: Pros: excellent quality, all in-one, network ready, fairly easy setup Cons: VERY slow. Takes a good 30 seconds for the printer to start doing anything when you send a job. Then it has to warm up (another 20 seconds or so). Not terrible when it finally starts printing, but most definitely on the slower end of laser printers.
Summary: After using numerous high-end Canon products at the office I decided to look for an inexpensive model for my home office. This all-in-one was deeply discounted at my local warehouse store (under $300) so after reading a few reviews--some good but most dismal--I decided to try it out knowing my needs were limited and I could return it without any hassle.
Summary: I thought this MFP would be a little easier to use from reading pre-reviews and Canon's hype. It takes a while to wake up and is quite noisy. In order to use an envelope one has to fumble through the LCD menu to set it for envelopes. Print quality is good but it certainly takes a a while to spit out the 1st page. I had to turn the sleep mode timer all the way up so it doesn't take as long. If you have this in your work area, expect it to be noisy.
