Canon Color imageClass MF8380Cdw

 

The Canon Color imageClass MF8380Cdw provides a good set of MFP features for a small office or workgroup.

Good set of MFP features. Offers duplexing ADF. Wi-Fi enabled.

Sub-par graphics quality. Cost per page on the high side. Limited paper handling options.

Canon imageClass MF4570dw

 

The Canon imageClass MF4570dw mono laser offers all the right MFP features for a small or home office.

Prints, scans, faxes. Standalone copier and fax. Automatic document feeder. Duplex printing. Wired and wireless network support.

Although output quality is good enough for most business needs, text is a touch below par for a mono laser MFP.

The Canon imageClass MF5960dn provides good speed and text quality, a range of MFP features, and several printer drivers for a small or micro office.

Good speed for business and photo printing. Versatile range of printer drivers. Solid feature set. Good text quality.

Problematic graphics with default driver.

Canon imageCLASS MF4570dw Review

 

While the energy consumption is high, the Canon imageCLASS wireless laser printer makes sure it uses every watt to produce nice-looking documents in just a few seconds. This printer allows you to finish all of your tasks with just one machine,...

The print speed of the Canon imageCLASS is 26 pages-per-minute.

This printer uses a lot of power, which may raise your energy bill a bit.

Your documents will be ready quickly, though it may cost in power consumption if you have to print large quantities on a regular basis.

Nice Printer

 

Works well in network environment. Menu's easy to understand on led

Has limited functionality using Canon Mobile Print App with an Android device. Will not print pdf's if you us an android. I thought Newegg and Canon specifications were misleading when listing the Mobile Print Options

Great printer

 

This is a very nice printer for the money, but is fairly noisy, and the tray that the printing come out on is to short if you have more that a couple of sheets coming out. Overall, I really like Canon Printers. This is my second one.

Great for the money

 

Somewhat noisy but does have a quiet mode. Scans and copies great. No complaint there. Easy to setup. Was hooked up in less than 15minutes. Great value for the money.

Excellent Value

 

I set this up by wired Ethernet for a customer. It works great in all modes including faxing and is nicely configurable though both a browser interface and the panel. It was a bargain at the $192.58 sale price I paid. Too bad it's apparently being...

FAST

 

This thing is really great. For the price, I doubt you could beat it. It continually amazes me with its speed. It is really fast! It has built-in duplex, RJ45 and WiFi, and USB. Unfortunately, the scanner is not the greatest quality, and you have to...

Great all in one

 

So far its a great office machine, I had the MF3111 before this for years until the scanner died. Really glad I got one with a docuement feeder. The machine looks good too, not that its all that important.

It has all the features you need for a small home office at a great price

I am using it wirelessly and so far (unless I can figure out how to make it default) I need to set the scanner to "remote scanner" each time I need to scan docs. Not a big deal
