The Canon MF3240 is a multifunction monochrome laser printer designed for the home or small office user. It offers fast printing speeds and more features than a dedicated laser printer, but lacks some of the capabilities of a full all-in-one machine.
The MF3240 can print, scan, copy, and fax. It can do faxing and copying standalone, without the need for a host computer. While it is quite capable at most of the functions, it doesn't have some of the convenience features of more expensive multifunction devices. Another example is the lack of an automatic document feeder. The MF3240 has a flatbed scanning surface alone, but no way to automatically feed multiple pages quickly. This makes it a good choice for users who need to do mostly printing, and only the occasional copying, scanning, or faxing task.
Its design may be a little bulky for its intended users, measuring 14.5 inches by 17.7 inches by 18.2 inches (HWD). It will still fit on many desktop surfaces, however. The unit weighs 26.4 pounds, so it is generally easy to move when necessary. The imageClass MF3240 can copy and fax right out of the box, without connecting to a computer.

Overall, the imageClass MF3240 is an excellent choice for users who need mainly solid print speeds and quality, and want to do occasional scanning, copying, or faxing. Lack of an automatic document feeder makes it inefficient for multiple page scanning.
