Canon Color imageClass MF8580Cdw

 

The Canon Color imageClass MF8580Cdw provides solid speed, good output quality, and Wi-Fi connectivity as a cabable color laser MFP for small offices and workgroups.

Good set of MFP features. Standard Wi-Fi. Duplexing ADF. Good output quality, thanks to above-par graphics. Solid speed.

Output quality, though good, falls short of the best in its class.

The Canon Color imageClass MF8580Cdw is a very capable color MFP with a solid feature set for small offices and workgroups. In simplex mode, it shared nearly identical print speeds with the Editors' Choice Dell 2155cn and the Editors' Choice Canon...

Canon i-SENSYS MF8580Cdw review

 

It's not a bad all-rounder, but Canon's MF8580Cdw is too expensive to buy

This is a very feature rich MFP with great quality prints, but the first page out time for mono prints needs improvement.

I might buy again but only with extended warranty. The printer basically work. I've owned other Canon products and had no problems. So far only duplex scanning fails, but this is one of the features I wanted.
