Summary: I'm using this multifunction device in a home office with a MacBook Pro and an HP laptop. I have always used Canons because they have a long relationship with Apple, and I have used Apple products since the 1980s.
Pros: Small footprint. Very satisfied with ease of installation. In the past, I had always hooked my printers up with a USB cable. I was amazed and very pleased with the simplicity and accurateness of the instructions for a wireless install. I am plus 70 senior and I was able to install without hitch.
Conclusion: My last printer was a Canon inkjet which still runs fine after 6 years. But it gradually dawned on me that a laser would have lower operating costs, and other advantages. I wanted another Canon, and was able to get this one at a killer price. It prints much faster than my old printer.
Conclusion: 4-in-1 desktop laser unit top rated in 2015 CR Buying Guide.....New printer in sealed box came without any literature, software, or warranty paperwork. That said waiting on Big Box chain supplier to either replace this obviously used printer or supply needed info. That said..
Summary: Very poor software. Scan quality is acceptable only for text. Scan time is somewhat slow. Print quality is OK. Copy quality is OK. Didn't try the fax function. I tried this device on my Windows 8.1 machine and Ubuntu 14.04 machine. The software utility looks like it was written in 1998.
Summary: In owning Canon's MF4890dw six weeks, I've used most features: flatbed scan, duplex scan, duplex print, print on an index card, and fax. pro: + easy setup. Wireless setup directs you to online help, but even that only took 5-10 min. + duplex print was worth it alone.
Conclusion: I purchased the ImageClass MF4890dw a couple years ago. I had been happy to find a copier/scanner/printer to resolve my home office needs. I had several problems: my wireless password is long, and the Cannon kept forgetting it as I didn't leave it on 24/7.
