Canon Color imageClass MF8080Cw


The Canon Color imageClass MF8080Cw offers all the features most micro or home offices need in a color MFP.

Prints, scans, and faxes. Automatic document feeder. Ethernet and WiFi support.

Low paper capacity for a shared printer. Bigger and heavier than competitors. No duplexer, even as an option.

Small Business/Home Office


I bought this because some of the parts on my brother HL2070n are starting to fail and I desired the color, scan, copy, fax functions. This printer works very will for my small business needs. I mostly print contracts, planning material, and documents....

Prints fast enough. Scan quality is decent. Fax works well. Black quality is good

Color print quality is poor, the images printed are overly bright and quality is washed out. Canon claims this is a fast printer (first to print), not true, my Brother monochrome will beat this from the start and spits out better quality blacks in half...

Great Alternative to Inkjets


This is not a full on office printer. Don't expect it to print out 500 pages without heating up. It will put out two copies of a thirty page contract without any fuss. It also faxes without much fuss either just be weary of finger prints on the pass...

It is a great printer that effortlessly networks both PC and Mac. For home office use I think I got a great deal. The toner is relatively affordable with several third party suppliers. At $170 with a starter kit of toner it easily beats out ninety nine...

I wish the paper hopper was deep enough to hold a full ream of paper

Price was very good!


I bought this to replace a Brother MFC-7440n, because I wanted to print color occasionally. After all the scanning and printing hassles, I re-installed the Brother as my primary MFC. The Canon will be relegated to the other room as a specialty, color...

Fast scans, excellent color print quality, low price

Won't automatically remote scan. When set up to "remote scan", you can't print. That's another trip to the machine

Not bad printer


I don't use it as a fax machine. So, I don't test its performance as a fax machine. Somebody feels that it is difficult to connect WIFI, but I don't agree with them. It is too easy for me.^^ Overall, this MFC is not bad. I'm satisfied with it.

1. Great print quality. pretty good ; 2. Fast scan ; 3. Color copy quality. nice

1. Slow printing speed (color) ; 2. Remote scan method. If you want to scan something on your PC, you must select "remote scan" on the machine ; 3. remote Scan quality. It is not good
