The Canon Color imageClass MF8280Cw color laser MFP offers all the right features for a micro or home office.

Low paper capacity. Big and heavy for what it offers. No duplexer, even as an option.

If you're looking for a color MFP for light-duty printing, along with scanning, copying, and faxing, and you must have high-quality output, the Canon Color imageClass MF8280Cw can easily be not just a reasonable choice, but the right choice for your...

Canon i-SENSYS MF-8280Cw

 

Canon's i-SENSYS MF-8280Cw is a big, colour multifunction printer with a shallow paper tray.

Scan direct to PC x 2 ; Easy change cartridges ; Full fax functions

150-sheet paper tray ; No duplex print ; No thumbnail photo display

The four combined drum and toner cartridges slide out together in a tray, once you’ve folded down the front panel, and are very easy to remove and replace. The bundled software includes Presto! Page Manager and Canon's own MP Toolbox. They work well...

Canon i-Sensys MF8280Cw review

 

Canon has produced some excellent models of late, but the Canon i-Sensys MF8280Cw colour laser printer isn't one of its best. It's slow, has a skimpy paper tray, and is a little expensive for what it is. Given all of that, it's a mystery quite why it's...

Canon MF8280Cw review

 

I have read the negatives about this unit and will address them: As for toner, you have the options of brand name, third party with new chips and putting in a new chip and toner powder, so cost is not an issue if you shop around. This units is set up...

Updated color laser technology ; Fast scanner ; Energy efficient ; Lots of connectivity options ; In-expensive third party toner cartridges make printing low cost ; Uses same cartridges as entry level HP color lasers ; Never clogs up like ink jet ;...

Heavy ; Output from adf scanner can sometimes get caught on plastic underside when ejecting out from feeder

Toner Costs More Than Printer-Stay Away

 

It works well, wireless is quirky. Paper tray holds about 80 sheets of paper, and if you pull the tray it will crack, very cheap plastic tray ; Scans are accurate

starter toner barely lasted 400 pages-WHAAAT?? are you joking ; Canon wants about 90.00 each cardtridge, so 360.00 for toner

Fast printing ; Great for printing invoices, receipts, contracts, etc

Colors can be a problem ; Expensive toner ; Jams frequently

Great Printer

 

I like it. Does all I want it to and no smeary ink.

Makes beautiful color prints, fast in B&W

Cartridges are a bit more $ than HP and Office Depot never offers deals on Cannon cartridges
