so far this printer is fantastic
it wasn't that long ago that i was firmly an HP laserjet guy. those were the tough guys, lasting forever, utterly reliable. the landscape has changed, though. i've gone through a number of other brands but Canon has become my new brand of choice... at least for b/w laser printing.
out of the box, this printer required very little. a few pieces of tape to remove and a toner cartridge to install. we've just used up the included toner now... and the page count was just shy of 3000.
the only annoyances:
1) the default printer driver set itself for duplex printing. easily fixed, of course.
2) the toner warning comes on very early and has no precision. according to the browser-based config page, the warning comes on when toner gets to 20%.

great value for black&white laser printer
By K. M. Norris
I have, as part of my occupation, specified and purchased MANY printers, desktops, laptops, and associated items. For my home office, I needed a new networkable laser printer and I needed it in a predictable time frame. Over the years, different vendors have come and gone and their quality has done the same. At this point, Canon offers this LBP6670dn Laser Printer at a price just under $200USD and it is a real value for the money. The quality of the hardware is evident as you unpack it and notice the weight. The informative display, the quick power save mode (and quick power-up mode, too) are appreciated. Easily networked via any standard Ethernet port on your network, and you quickly have a great small workgroup printer or even just for an individual.
At one time, I liked Lenovo for this type of printer, but their quality has tanked, and the Hewlett Packard models are overkill and at a higher price. My only criticism is that the installation of drivers for this printer was a bit tricky although once installed, it has worked perfectly. I concur with another owner who recommends installing ALL of the available driver types; you may add other computers and devices in the future that will need them. I am using this printer in a home office networked environment now after first using it on one Win 7 workstation only.
It is nice to be pleasantly surprised by the quality of a relatively mundane item such as a black&white laser printer, and this one has done so for me!

Quality output and fast
By Wong Hao
Good quality printer. We purchased this printer to replace an HP which started to deteriorate in print quality, after many years. I chose either Canon or HP, so that we don't have to buy a drum-roller in addition to the toner replacements. (We print a fair amount).
We usually only print text, this printer's output quality is excellent.
It is a bit loud when it starts to print, but it prints quickly, so it is over fast. The starter toner doesn't last long, as expected.
Easy to setup, the software found the printer on the network quickly.
We did encounter an issue that the router assigned a different IP address once, we assigned the IP address at the printer, and problem is fixed.
