Well-built office product with business performance
Strengths: 1 well-built machine 2. fashion design 3. high quality print and fax
Weakness: the toner is kind of expensive
This is the best fax machine (with laser printer) I have ever used. It scans 50 pages at a time super quick and faxes immediately when the line is free. It prints very fast with high print quality. It's very easy to use and understand. The copy feature is another reason for you to buy this all-in-one machine! A small business should get one!

More than a fax machine
Strengths: 1. easy to operate 2. fast machine that also doubles as a USB laser printer and a copy machine 3. business performance and high quality
Weakness: there might be a learning curve if you've never owned a fax machine before
It really works perfectly in an office environment for a small business. Fax is quick. Print quality is just excellent. Quiet and fast. You won't be disappointed for this product.

solid AIO printer/fax machine
Strengths: AIO functions, reliable, nice printing quality
Weakness: no flatbed, little bit noise when printing
have been using for one year already. it's such a reliable AIO printer/fax machine. easy to set up. nice printing quality. Canon is a really solid brand. have changed toner once. not OEM one. generic toner works great. and it's much cheaper than OEM toner. Only complain is the noise. a little bit high than I imaging.

Never Go Back to Inkjet Fax Machines!
Strengths: No dried out inkjets, rapid scanning, advanced functions, multifunction, small size, energy saving mode
Weakness: Needs high quality paper or else it can feed double pages, expensive toner refills, USB cable not included
The Canon Faxphone L170 is very well built. It has a small footprint and fits easily on the desk. Assembly of the machine was easy with the help of the instructions. Installation of drivers/software on Windows XP was easy. Sending a basic fax requires four steps: 1. Turn machine on (or awaken from sleep mode). 2. Dial fax number. 3. Place fax pages face down in feed tray. 4. Press START button....

The Canon Faxphone L170 is very well built. It has a small footprint and fits easily on the desk. Assembly of the machine was easy with the help of the instructions. Installation of drivers/software on Windows XP was easy.
Sending a basic fax requires four steps:
1. Turn machine on (or awaken from sleep mode).
2. Dial fax number.
3. Place fax pages face down in feed tray.
4. Press START button.
The pages are quickly scanned into memory before the number is dialed. Transmission of faxes seems to be slow and the quality of the transmitted fax is good. Keep the user manual handy. There are a lot of advanced functions and it is not trivial to perform them using only the LCD display on the printer to guide you.
The laser printing of text from your PC is sharp and uniform. Graphics printing suffers from problems usual for B&W printers. The ability to scan pages/images directly to your PC makes this machine versatile. Refill toner is fairly expensive for this machine.

Nice dedicated fax
Strengths: Laser quality on plain paper
This is an excellent machine for dedicated faxing. Laser printing on plain paper is quiet and the print quality is excellent. Recommended for users looking for a high volume fax machine.
