Review: Canon Color ImageClass MF8050Cn all-in-one printer

 

There is a code to which a cowboy cleaves. He never shoots first, he's always kind to ladies, and he never buys more printer than he can handle. While I can't speak for those out on the lone prairie, I can report that the 52-pound ImageClass MF8050Cn...

Great MF Laser Printer

 

Like it a lot, but have kept my other Laser printer for pamphlet printing. This one's a mite slow when color printing, but the end product is excellent.

Easy to set up with Windows. Print, scan and copy functions work extremely well and easily. Got mine at CostCo and love the deal

Would have liked wireless capability and two sided printing. 3500 pages per toner is not the best rate out there, but not bad

Pretty good but slow

 

Please give us more Controls through mac!!! Still not able to figure out fax confirmation through printed paper only sound. I had read that it was Mac compatible yet missing more mac friendly features. I do not think I would have purchased printer...

Prints are good. Color is great

Having with mac . Would like to control the printer as the Windows does. Cannot control BW output when printing from Mac. There is a lag when the printer is on sleep mode. The instructions are windows based

Mac Users Are Left Without Print Drivers

 

Just received the multifunction printer today and printed out the first few test copies. The quality of the prints and overall ease of setup has been great...except one hitch. Mac users are left to figure out where to get drivers. Fortunately, I've...

Fabulous value

 

Got this on sale for more than $200 off. Fast shipment. Easy to setup. Was printing in no time. Prints really well. Scans come across top notch for what we need. Does everything our office needed. Got rid of a bunch of other hardware that this...

Bottom paper tray feels very lightweight. Not a big deal but I think if it got dropped in anyway that it would break pretty easily. Takes a bit of time to warm up to print

Great Value

 

I have not done that much printing yet, but very satisfied with this printer since I received it. I have several Canon printing products that work well in a small office. This computer replaced a Brother CN9420, which never worked the way I hoped. I...

Newegg got it here in one day1! without express shipping. Set up was typical, prints crisp, color copy and printing accurate. Seems like a great value for a color laser

Easy Setup, durable, High Quality Output, easy to use

Product Specifications

The Canon Color imageCLASS MF8050Cn sets standards for business-quality results in any environment. Packed with sophisticated features, and cutting-edge technology, the MF8050Cn has advanced color technologies found in high-end commercial machines - in an affordable, compact solution. The MF8050Cn delivers fast and accurate printing. Documents are ready in a short time, at print speeds up to 8 pages-per-minute (ppm) in color and 12 ppm in black and white. Designed for ease-of-use in your home or home office, the MF8050Cn is outfitted with a front-loading design that provides easy access to the control panel and paper sources. In-line cartridges can also be retrieved from the front of the machine for hassle-free replacement. A large LCD with graphic-display provides guided user animation within the display that simplifies once complex tasks via illustrated on-screen instructions. Carry your important information with you by saving scanned documents to a USB removable media. Connect the USB removable media to the USB port located conveniently in the front of the machine to scan your letter, statement, or legal-sized documents. The Superior Color Imaging technology featured in the MF8050Cn captures fine details with remarkable tone-on-tone clarity, helping images stay true to the original. Canon Pure Black technology ensures the richest blacks by utilizing only the black toner instead of traditional methods of combining toner colors. And like many imageCLASS products, the MF8050Cn is part of the generation green program, Canon's initiative to reduce environmental burdens in all stages of a product's life-cycle.
