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.

Great Printer


Great printer. Have printed thousands of pages through them. I have two and need two more. Wish they were still stocked at newegg

B&W scan is average, better on other machine, but it is fast and works for most of our scans; can run through in color for higher res

Good cheap multifunction


If it had a starter toner cartridge, I would have given this 5 eggs. Very simple driver interface so I'll probably experience fewer problems than with the Brother or HP multifunctions I've had in the past. You won't find another duplexing laser at...

Low cost, duplexing

Doesn't include a toner cartridge. Figure $75 for the toner

Get the firmware!


It is all to common to have to update firmware before using products these days. Oh well, I guess that is what happens when the profit margins are so thin.

Cheap and lots of features

Get the firmware and install it before you do anything else! I got a "Load correct paper error" that would not let me do anything until I updated the firmware ;...

Multifunction Laser Printer


No comments.

This printer is easy to set up and printing speed is not so bad, but they didn't come with the toner, so I have to buy the black toner about $34. So, total the sale price+toner was over $100

No other though

not so good, no so bad


Over all, hardware is not that bad, only the matter is software problem. The 3rd party is really cheap and good for use the printer. I spent $100($70 printer, $30 toner) for this printer that it is not that bad for using laser printer. At the first...

no toner but buy cheap 3rd party($26), even I use 3rd party toner is really sharp print out, much more faster than inkjet(HP 720) less use cartridge.(2500pg, not sure?)multi-function is good for saving my time. useful function for fax

no toner, no USB cable(I've got my own), little tricky setting for print. YOU should page setting (LTS,not A4. A4 is always error message) both printer and computer
