Canon imageClass MF3010

 

A personal monochrome laser MFP, the Canon imageClass MF3010 is small enough to fit on a desk in any size office.

Cheap. Small size. Fast. Prints and scans. Standalone copier.

No fax. No duplexer. No paper-handling upgrade options. Relatively high cost per page. Connects by USB only.

Canon ImageClass MF3010 review

 

The Canon ImageClass MF3010 multifunction monolaser printer is best suited for dorm rooms and small offices that require a simple laser printer for outputting e-mails, Web articles, recipes, and other print jobs that don't require full-color output....

The Canon ImageClass MF3010 is a competent imaging device with quick output, simple controls, and a wallet-friendly price tag for budget-minded students and small offices.

The printer lacks common features like wireless networking and an autodocument feeder.

Though it's lacking Wi-Fi and an autodocument feeder, the Canon ImageClass MF3010 laser printer's strong performance and versatile features have appeal for students and home offices on a budget.

Awesome Little Printer

 

This printer is awesome! I had a Canon MP500 for 5+ years. I had it replaced with this printer. I'm glad I switched to laser. My old ink printer I would have to shell out a whooping $150 for ink. Refilling didn't quite last as long. I'm very satisfied...

Space Saving ; Fast printing ; Scanner ; Cheap ; High Quality Prints ; The scanning quality is good. All I really need is 600 dpi. Anything bigger isn't for me, I just needed a basic scanner ; Good design. It's a modern looking printer. Fits well with...

No auto Duplex printing

Great printer!

 

None. But discovered it can support older printer driver. Perfect! In case I buy a old Mac!

Great printer. Great quality. Canon is better on the software than the Epson software. Much simple, and even allowed me to save my documents as PDFS which ?Epson printer don't do that. So I'm keeping this

Price of ink cartridges... yikes. 70 dollars for a toner cartridge. But I'll accept it

Excellent for the price.

 

Inexpensive and well reviewed 3rd party cartridges are available if you're willing to take the risk.

Its inexpensive, works and meets my modest printing needs. It can print envelopes, works as a standalone copier, and can scan in color

You get what you pay for, and given its price range I have zero complaints

MF3010 Is a great laser printer for the money!

 

If you need a printer for your home office or a backup for your work. Buy it.

I bought this printer on sale off of here after having tons of issues with standard printers, running out of ink, etc. I have used this printer for over a year going through boxes and boxes of paper printing loan contracts and have had zero issues....

Plug and play set-up. Took me awhile and reading other reviews to figure out where all of the protective plastic is inside the printer and cartridge to remove for it to work. The buttons and display makes it look very old but actually works out better...
