Nice Printer


Works well in network environment. Menu's easy to understand on led

Has limited functionality using Canon Mobile Print App with an Android device. Will not print pdf's if you us an android. I thought Newegg and Canon specifications were misleading when listing the Mobile Print Options

Great printer


This is a very nice printer for the money, but is fairly noisy, and the tray that the printing come out on is to short if you have more that a couple of sheets coming out. Overall, I really like Canon Printers. This is my second one.

Great for the money


Somewhat noisy but does have a quiet mode. Scans and copies great. No complaint there. Easy to setup. Was hooked up in less than 15minutes. Great value for the money.

Excellent Value


I set this up by wired Ethernet for a customer. It works great in all modes including faxing and is nicely configurable though both a browser interface and the panel. It was a bargain at the $192.58 sale price I paid. Too bad it's apparently being...

This thing is really great. For the price, I doubt you could beat it. It continually amazes me with its speed. It is really fast! It has built-in duplex, RJ45 and WiFi, and USB. Unfortunately, the scanner is not the greatest quality, and you have to...

Great all in one


So far its a great office machine, I had the MF3111 before this for years until the scanner died. Really glad I got one with a docuement feeder. The machine looks good too, not that its all that important.

It has all the features you need for a small home office at a great price

I am using it wirelessly and so far (unless I can figure out how to make it default) I need to set the scanner to "remote scanner" each time I need to scan docs. Not a big deal

Easy to Set Up Great Value


This printer has been a joy. It was very easy to setup, easy ink replacement (low cost cartridges...easily accessible). Functions without any problems. I use for my business and it is dependable and has very good WiFi connectivity (no issues).

Installation C.C. didn't load


Everything about this product seems great. Except the Installation C.D. didn't work in my 64 bit computer. I downloaded manuels from the Canon website but haven't used the printer. Gotta program the printer itself (not computer) I guess. Computer says...
