Great printer -- but scanner needs USB connection.
I purchased this printer to replace an InkJet all-on-one that I had for years. I simply didn’t need the color printer anymore (pictures are easier to print with online services) and I really wanted to be able to print from any computer on the network. So, the Canon imageCLASS MF4370dn seemed a great choice, for both the functionality and the price. So, here’s bottom line. **PROS**: Auto-duplex printing and scanning; certainly the price; network connectivity; energy-saver mode; print quality/speed; very easy to set up. **CONS**: Really, I have just one: The scanning mode. It really doesn’t work on the network. When I called Canon about this, they instructed me to use the USB mode (instead of the network mode) for the scanning; they had said that scanning is a bit too bandwidth heavy over a network. So, why offer it as an option? Doesn’t really matter, as the scanning mode is most needed at the PC anyway. Overall, this is a great all-in-one, but you need to have the printer connected near a PC (and not to a network alone) if you want to use the scanner.
