Canon imageCLASS MF4150

 

The MF4150 is only 17.7 by 15.4 by 16.8 inches (HWD)—small enough to keep on or near your desk without feeling as if it's towering over you. It weighs only 28.2 pounds, about the same as some large ink jets. But it's big on functionality. As well as...

Fast print speed. Scans. Faxes. Copies. Automatic document feeder. Duplex (two-sided) printing

Graphics and photo quality are typical for a monochrome laser, but a touch below the best available

Small but capable, the Canon imageClass MF4150 is a great fit for anyone who needs a personal copier, fax machine, and printer.

Canon imageCLASS MF3240

 

By most measures, the Canon imageClass MF3240 ($200 street) is an impressive laser all-in-one, suitable for a home office or as a personal AIO in any size office. This isn't to say that it doesn't have flaws. In particular, it lacks an automatic...

Fast print speed. Scans, faxes from PC, works as standalone copier and fax machine

No automatic document feeder. Graphics quality is a touch below par

The Canon imageClass MF3240 delivers fast print speeds plus scanning, faxing and copying, but it lacks an automatic document feeder.

Breaks down after a year for $300. Go 2 Kinkos 2 sv $$$

 

After a year, you are out of warranty and out $300 without a working printer. I have $300 big clunky scanner. Canon support is not too helpful. My previous laser printers ("HP") have lasted at least 4+ years. Save yourself some money and do not buy...

Prints a good speed, quality of print is ok when it is working ; All-in-one convenient

Last for just about a year. They only have a one year warranty. Not too solid construction. Cheap

Windoze ONLY, no doc feeding, paper source jams easily

 

If I had it to do over, I would not buy this machine. Too much trouble to return though and I can always send from my primary box (linux) to a windoze box to use this beast. My wife may throw it out the window (and me with it) if the paper jams on her...

Overall print quality is good. Support generally quick with responses. Priced well

No linux driver. No doc feeder. Paper source jams regularly. Doc has great advanced instructions but leaves out key parts like how to manually receive a fax

Terrible piece of junk

 

unreliable piece of junk

nothing at all

I bought this last year. It worked for 40 days and then broke down. They sent me a rebuilt unit, and it broke in less than a year. I never even changed the cartridge because it didn't last long enough to use it up

Consumer review by:

Great duplex laser printer

 

Although the specification listed here do not say so, this is a duplex printer.

Prints sharp and very rarely jams. Mine jams maybe once out of 1,200 sheets. I use 20 - 30 lb. paper with no problems

No adjustment for print density - darkness. There is adjustment for copying but not printing

Consumer review by:

Great printer - Messy Canon USA website - No drivers.

 

I paid $150 after the $150 rebate. I was really hesitant about buying a Multifunction this cheap and was going to purchase a higher end Canon model. I am very glad I "Settled" on this model. It has the feel of a quality piece of office machinery at an...

I use this for printing / scanning / copying at home. It is very quick to spit out the first and subsequent pages

Messed up Canon USA website. Can't find drivers! Lackluster support "ToolKit" program

Terrible Printer Cartridge Life - Bait & Switch Tactic!

 

Claimed printer life is 2000 pages. I have gone through 3 cartridges at US$ 75 each. None lasted over 500 pages. Research revealed that Canon offers printer life is 2000 pages but only at 5% printing coverage per page; this amounts to a few lines per...

Duplex printing, short start up time, excellent quality printing, low power consumption, compact and light weight

Terrible Printer Cartridge Life - Poor Bait & Switch Tactic ; Great for occasional printing and ornamental value on the mantle
