1) The D480 is beige, the MF4370 black
2) The D480 has am improved document feeder
3) The D480 has more complete duplexing than the MF4370.
I was actually alerted to #3 by an Amazon review. You can put a stack of two-sided documents into the feeder and produce a set of two-sided duplicates. According to the Amazon reviewer the MF4370 will take two-sided docs in the feeder but can only produce single-sided docs in response.
I haven't tried this with a thick stack of documents but onesie/twosie stuff seems to work great, at least with plain copy paper. I tried duplex-copying a mortgage statement printed on thick paper and the feeder choked on it.
Copying is fast, quiet and sharp. I'm delighted by it, actually. Duplexing is really simple. Manually scanning two different sheets onto one two-sided document or just copying a two-sided document are both very easy. The biggest limitation is the size of the platen. I didn't think I'd even notice this but if you're used to throwing down a book or something of a full-size copy machine you'll feel a bit cramped. If you want to scan oversized stuff you're of out of luck, but that's true of every machine in this price range.
The D480 seems to be a perfectly capable printer and supports full duplexing right from software. I do most of my printing to an HP 3600dn and don't see that changing except for printing music, where duplexing will be really nice to have. Network printing was really easy to set up.
Scanning is where this device falls a bit flat, and that's due almost entirely to the software, not the hardware.Read more ›
The decision to go with this Canon D480 all-in-one printer was a gamble for me. My previous printer was a Canon color all-in-one ink jet unit (MP360 ) that died prematurely and went to an early grave after barely 3 years of very lite use. I was really concerned about buying another Canon device or ink jet model. The root cause for failure on the MP360 was it's uncorrectable ink pump/head issue, so I opted to return to the B&W toner cartridge models. I learned that no matter how easy it might be to take off a few cover panels, these Canon's are NOT designed for easy service and repair (even with my tech background). No wonder they try to charge $$$ if you consider getting one fixed instead of replacing it. They don't want to fix 'em either! HA
I need the capability for an occasional fax and scan in addition to the obvious printing. Deciding not to buy the individual components, I reviewed all the multi-function units I could find. Unless I was willing to shell out some serious $$$ and buy a business model, my choices all hovered in the $300-500 range. This model might be ok for a small or home office (SOHO), but the plastic materials and strength of the components are NOT like those found on previous devices. With any type of heavy use, I can NOT see this model standing up to any bumps or long term wear. For example, this unit has a flimsy tab that extends at the end of the output tray (necessary to use or the papers end up on the floor) and one little bump could break it right off. The ADF and scan cover on top feels like it was made as lightly and cheaply as possible. You'll have to treat this unit easily and carefully or it probably won't hold up.Read more ›
Well, I've had the D480 over 2 months and I really like it. It's like having an office copier, laser printer and scanner next to my desk. (I have not used the fax function so can't report on it.) For all it does, it does not have a large footprint and space is limited for me. It comes alive and copies or prints very quickly. Everything I have printed and scanned has been very clean and professional document quality. The duplex copy, print & scan is a real plus, and I have a bunch of files that I want to scan into electronic format. Paper handling has been perfect. I am very happy with its perforance.
Only problems I had was with documentation. 1)Network Configuration was unclear and incomplete. After repeated efforts, I called Canon support. They were excellent, spoke English, were not in a rush to get me off the line, and knew exactly how to walk be through the network installation. That support is worth a lot these days. By the way, the rest of the documentation was good. 2) Scanning Software is minimalist when scanning on a network configuration and the documentation was unclear. It works but is bare bones. (The unit can be hooked up directly to a PC with a USB cable and the software for that kind of configuration seemed more robust and user friendly.) Maybe I'll purchase a separate software package for scanning.
Bottom Line: I am very happy with this purchase in spite of the documentation and software, especially since I got it for $285 through a Amazon reseller versus the $400 list.
