i am very disappointed with canon and this model, bought first one and it was DOA it kept turning on and off continuasly every 2 sec, returned it and got another one and it turned out the top tray/cover was broken.
usually canon are great and never had problems with them before, but to me it just seem like this model is really crappy, maybe thats why its on sale, or it could be i just had bad luck with them, anyone else had problems ??
i decided to give it one more try and finally i got a good printer that works, after looking at other printers for the performance and price no printer other printer comes close. the printer that i got works good, i set it up wireless and it works great.

1200 for black and 1400 average yield for the color toners.
Probably would have bought it if it came with the full toners.

Received mine the 14th and set it up this morning. No issues at all, I found the setup to be quite simple (the hardest part was carrying the dang thing to where I wanted it - it's heavy!).
From unbox to first page, it was probably 20 minutes.

I've tried to locate the posts that show this printer being available for $200 previously, without any success.
I did find a post for a higher price for this model.
So if anyone saying they purchased this for that price point can provide a link, that'd be great.
I can say this, the D in the model make a big difference.
You can source the non duplexing MF8080 model for right around $240 currently, so with a deal / sale / coupon I could see how you might get close to $200.
As for people talking about the not user friendly setup / configuration.
I can say this much.
This is really a low end model of an enterprise class printer, not really your average consumer class MFp.
My familiarity of them from work probably makes me biased on this point, but I find it no more difficult to configure than HP MFp's and while we always deploy HP printers for dedicated print only services;
We've found HP MFp's to be very bad to manage from an IT perspective as well as poor performing for the end user community, prone to frequent problems.
I've been looking for a quality, not just cheap for cheap sake, Mfp that could handle all functions for my home. This was the best blend of reputable manufacturer and model with features for the price I've personally come across in over a year worth of keeping a casual eye out.
I've ordered one of these myself, but not yet received it.
Anyway it was my own choosing this model deal that led me to post it, I'm glad some people found it to be a good deal for them as well.
For those gripping about toner costs....well....a few things I can comment on.
The cartridges will last quite a while at about 4,000 pages and right now they run about ~$50 per on the open market individually, or ~$175 for a full replacement set of 4.
Laser printer toner is always expensive, but it will last you a long time and has a lower per page cost when compared to ink based counter parts.

|USCFanatic||Own this printer and very happy with it. The compatible toner works fine for me although I wouldnt suggest if you need high quality print outs.|

|Yangimage||i have this printer and I don't like it at all. If you just do regular printing, copying, and faxing you're fine with it. But if you want to print from the side tray for example envelope or address label..it doesn't default to side tray when open like most printer. you'll have to manually configure it. Also you'll have to configure it back to bottom tray once done or it will detect side tray empty. It's just too much hassle for me.|

|rechtien||I have this printer, not the most user friendly on networking. Mine seems to randomly forget where it is on the network. When it does this, since windows is not terribly smart my computers have to be retold where it is so that I can print. Frustrating, but for the price I like it. I think I paid 250ish from staples a while back when they had the small business coupons out for 50% purchase.|
