Pros: Efficient, Fast, Quiet
Cons: Expensive Consumables, Flimsy, Poor Envelope Handling, Poor Printer Mgmt, Uses Too Much Ink

Summary: I bought this MFP to replace an aging Canon MF4360. I'm about 3500 pages into this printer & looking to replace it. I expected easy to set up, easy to operate, and inexpensive to maintain (both in time and money). It was easy to setup, and it prints double sided pages reasonably quickly however: -- The output bin has no catch, so one page can push the previous page out of the output bin and onto the floor. This is especially prevalent with heavy duty stock (like labels).
Excerpt: This is a great little printer. I am still getting used to the controls but I love the duplex printing and the network printing. The whole family can print from their own locations and the cartriages are reasonable to replace. We are pretty happy with the purchase at this point.
Excerpt: The first printer received had a broken paper tray -- wouldn't open.<br />Staples immediately replaced it -- next day delivery.<br />Setting up the paper tray to actually recieve paper is not intuitive. It is NOT set up to accept regular letter-sized paper. Had to locate and download the manual and then find the paper tray set-up information.<br />After that the paper fit just fine and the tray closed correctly.<br />The scanning function is quick and easy.
Excerpt: In the first week, machine drew in multiple sheets at once, effectively ruining the single-sheet draw function. Now each sheet must be hand-fed into the copier (no more automatic multiple copies). Can you imagine how tedious? Moreover, now the entire machine groans and rattles with each use. The multiple-function keypad is horribly frustrating to me, because I am not technically savvy at all (are there many of us left out there?).
Summary: I've had to set this up quite a few times as it seems like I've moved over and over since buying this thing. It is really easy to set up without having to plug into any computer. It is incredibly quick to wake-up and print and has a surprisingly high level of detail for "just a laser printer".
