Small Business/Home Office

MATTHEW C., Newegg
11 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this because some of the parts on my brother HL2070n are starting to fail and I desired the color, scan, copy, fax functions. This printer works very will for my small business needs. I mostly print contracts, planning material, and documents.
  • Pros: Prints fast enough. Scan quality is decent. Fax works well. Black quality is good
  • Cons: Color print quality is poor, the images printed are overly bright and quality is washed out. Canon claims this is a fast printer (first to print), not true, my Brother monochrome will beat this from the start and spits out better quality blacks in half the time. Printer is heavy

Canon Color imageCLASS MF8080Cw

Andrew B., Newegg
19 September 2013
  • Pros: It has really worked great for me. It isn't the fastest color laser printer I used but for the price I'm really happy with it.
  • Cons: Occasionally the printer is in Energy Saving mode and doesn't want to wake up to print. It is connected by Wi-Fi. I just turn it off and on and it's back at work this only happens when I change a setting or reboot the router usually though. I still have to use my Canon MX700 Inkjet to do scanning...

Pretty good

Joseph J., Newegg
27 August 2013
  • Summary: This think on sale was a great buy. Off brand toner is fairly easy to come by and the starter Carts give a good number of prints. It feels like a office type printer but the paper tray is pretty small.
  • Pros: Price (on sale) for a Laser Color Much better quality than Inkjet with good paper it is even better. Much faster than ink jet many more prints per cart than inkjet price per print about the same give or take. Wired Network a breeze to setup Off brand Toner is not too expensive though still a bit ...
  • Cons: Price much more expensive than inkjet Small paper tray Software feels Clunky, but it does work just fine with Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit. Does get a bit loud but not horrible.

Nice Printer

Theo S., Newegg
8 August 2013
  • Summary: I have not used the fax functionality. Overall it is a nice machine.
  • Pros: Easy to set up. I was printing in about 15 minutes. (took longer to get it out of the package). Simple print and copy functionality.
  • Cons: The scanning can be a bit cumbersome. But, if all you want is simple pdf scanning then life will be easy.

Canon "Mac-compatible"?

B T Best, Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: BEWARE of Canon products like this one that say they are "Mac-compatible." Canon DOES NOT OFFER a PDF manual or an e-manual for this product. For certain operations, such as calibration after replacing toner cartridges, the printed manual says to follow the instructions in the included e-manual.

Slow and complicated.

Chad, Amazon
10 July 2013
  • Summary: I changed my mind.. this thing is a piece of crap. Buggy drivers, always hard to print of copy. I never have problems with technology, a one man shop everything for everything tech related.. just needed a color laser printer and this thing hangs up all of the time! Skip it.. find a better model.

Great printer for the money

Michael M., Newegg
9 July 2013
  • Summary: For the price (179.00) I'm replacing my noisy Canon inkjet which drank ink like there was no tomorrow. Even though the laser replacement cartridges are more expensive, I'm hoping to save in the long run. At least I won't be changing cartridges every 3 months.
  • Pros: Set up was a breeze. Both of my home networked Win 7 machines connected without issue. Black and white and color look great. It's way more quiet than my inkjet. For home/school use, this printer should be more than adequate.
  • Cons: None really but at 65 pounds you need a stable base for this baby to land on.

Perfect for personal use.

Jacob B., Newegg
14 June 2013
  • Summary: I only print maybe 10 pages per month. We wanted a color laser printer because the toner does not dry out like inkjet. Complaints about it being slow is nominal to me. It might be worse than more expensive laser printers but its faster than my old inkjet.
  • Pros: Has Color, Scanner, and copy all in one. Laser toner does not dry up between uses. Goes into energy saving mode so I don't have to think about turning it on and off. Will save a ton of money on not buying ink. Very easy to set up wireless. Instructions were VERY helpful.
  • Cons: Does take a lot longer to warm up and initiate print than my old inkjet. Have not figured out how to print double sided. Instructions says it can but the option is not present in the print dialogue. Probably just need to download a newer driver/software version.

Great Alternative to Inkjets

John F., Newegg
17 May 2013
  • Summary: This is not a full on office printer. Don't expect it to print out 500 pages without heating up. It will put out two copies of a thirty page contract without any fuss. It also faxes without much fuss either just be weary of finger prints on the pass through scanner part.
  • Pros: It is a great printer that effortlessly networks both PC and Mac. For home office use I think I got a great deal. The toner is relatively affordable with several third party suppliers. At $170 with a starter kit of toner it easily beats out ninety nine percent of the cheap ink jets. I got more co...
  • Cons: I wish the paper hopper was deep enough to hold a full ream of paper.

Very good

Brian G., Newegg
11 May 2013
  • Summary: In the 400-500 price range it's a tough sell. I bought at a big discount from Newegg (around 250 bucks!!) If you get a good price like I did (<$300) it's a steal
  • Pros: Print quality = very high. Wifi no problems.
  • Cons: It is BIG.
