Canon i-SENSYS MF4890dw


Canon's i-SENSYS MF4890dw is a compact mono laser all-in-one with wireless connection and full duplex print, copy and scan.

Dedicated scan and copy functions, Paper tray cover, Clear controls

Annoying wake-up button, No XL cartridge option, Poor driver interface

Canon i-SENSYS MF4890dw review


Canon's latest i-SENSYS MF4890dw is a compact multifunction mono laser printer with a good stack of features. Styled in ubiquitous cream and black, this is a lightweight printer (13.4kg) that won't take up much space on a work surface, measuring just...

Canon seems to have hit a target with its new compact MFP mono laser printer as it combines a broad range of features with fast speeds, good print quality, if unexceptional running costs.

The Canon imageClass MF4890dw monochrome laser multifunction printer proves as a show stealer with its extra ordinary MFP features along with the flexibility to scan both sides of a page for duplex (two-sided) scanning, copying, and faxing.

Canon MF4890dw printer

Decent printer but they definitely skimped


For the price this a decent all-in-one. I've faxed, printed, and scanned with it. It does all of those tasks well for the price. Quick wakeup and quick first page print

They really went cheap on a few parts here. Most notably the paper output tray. It's a little fold out plastic flap that looks like a strong breeze will snap off. Without the flap extended, printed pages just float right out and fall to the table....
