Ease of Use

Haven't tried the fax yet, but the printer, copier and scanner work flawlessly. Setup is easy and the quality is excellent. I would definitely buy this again. Buy.Com delivered it fast and without any problems. quote

This is a very functional device. I would recommend it for home networks and some small offices (I clarify regarding offices below). It generally does what it claims. I have two gripes and one recommendation for prospective users. My first gripe is that a user can only scan to a computer that is directly connected to the 4270 via USB. The 4270 will not scan to other computers either on a wired or wireless network. This scanning limitation might be a problem for those that intend to use the device in an office. Canon Customer Service confirmed that this is the only way to scan with the 4270. Apparently there are higher-end sibling models that will scan to computers on a network. My second gripe is that adjusting the 4270's performance requires scrolling through numerous screens of questions. Example: If I want to cancel a print job, I can't just press a button to cancel it. I must scroll through several screens in the "Additional Functions" area. By the time one finds the "Cancel Print Job" function, the job has completed printing. Opening the printer manager in Windows and canceling there is faster but the job will likely have printed as the printer prints quickly. My recommendation, if a user intends to place this machine on a network, is to give it a static IP address. This will prevent those printing from the network from having to re-install the printer each time the printer gets a new IP address. Last, I'll add that Canon's Customer Service was very helpful in addressing my issues and I think I was on hold for only 10 minutes. I had trouble understanding the speech of the person I spoke with initially. But once transferred to a network specialist, english was this person's first language.

Nice buy

by ben on 3/29/2008

The printer is great, networking only allows faxing and printing. Scanning must be connected via usb. Very easy to remove jams. Only downside is no Linux support what so ever. I looked into a lot of printers and this one beat HP, Samsung, etc... hands down. Love the duplexing feature! Super fast shipping from too!
