I bought this because I had some much trouble scanning with my other, I scan a lot and this ADF has never failed.

Started making a grinding noise after 6 months...
but it's still working... repair guy says just buy a new one will cost too much to repair.
Scanner sw works decently well. We'd be happy if it wasn't for the noise that suggests imminent breakdown.
Consumables not too bad in terms of life span.

Canon ImageClass MF8380cdw - Sleep Issue
My Canon ImageClass MF8380cdw printer would go to energy saver sleep mode and would not wake up from sleep. It gets stuck in sleep mode with no way to bring it out of the energy save mode. I discovered that it is a problem with the WiFi. I was able to fix this problem by changing my Wifi Channel Bandwidth to 20mhz. The wifi seeting was 20/40mhz by default on my router. After changing the channel bandwidth to 20mhz, the energy save works properly now.

has met all expectations
There are two things I use this printer for: (1) printing, and (2) scanning. The wifi and other fancy things don't interest me, so I can't comment on the complaints regarding those features.
Output quality is amazing. From turn on to print ready is maybe 20 seconds. Paper handling has been flawless; the few jams have always been my fault. Handles card stock without complaint. Front panel controls are sufficiently intuitive and informative. Pulled the printer out of its box and had a perfect first print within minutes. This is a well designed product reflecting Canon's many years in the printer business.
The printer claims that my black cartridge needs replacing, but I've kept printing for hundreds of pages since without problem (yet). The scanner used to play seamlessly with photoshop 9, now I have to push buttons to make them play together, doubtless this was caused by a software "upgrade" rather than the printer.
I never buy a printer without checking out the cost of supplies (some mfrs. more or less give their printer away and eat you alive on toner/ink). Costs here are very reasonable.
I gave five stars, might have shown 4 1/2 but the problems are only nuisance level. I'm not really sympathetic to those who want the printer to be alll things to all people.
