Good with some issues

JB, Canon
18 September 2014
  • Conclusion: The MF8580Cdw was not quite what I expected but after using for a bit some of my main cons about it have become less important. I am used to scanning from the computer rather than from the printer/scanner. People have been complaining about this function and rightly so. One has to keep periodically setting the Remote Scanner option in order to do this.

Noisy, Slow, Difficult Settings

GMS, Canon
15 September 2014
  • Conclusion: I have been a tech person for many years. I've worked all all different types of equipment. I replaced a stand alone fax machine and two printers with this one. The set up was difficult and time consuming. It is noisy. It is slow. To be able to print envelopes and checks from the multi-purpose tray takes a great deal of time to change the settings and paper sizes. For something that should be automatic, printing anything from the multipurpose tray is complicated.

Seals envelopes

Anonymous, Canon
10 September 2014
  • Conclusion: I was excited with the initial performance of this printer: easy set-up, good color, fast. Then I sent through an envelope to print an address. It came out sealed. I tried several more envelopes (which were open and dry before I fed them into the printer) and each one came out sealed. The printer clearly runs so hot that it seals standard business envelopes. For me, that makes the printer worthless and I am returning it to the store.

When it's new, it works great, but...

inkyx, Canon

  • Conclusion: This copier performed admirably until warranty expired. Then issues appear. I have two. For one of them, we called in a specialist who did a software fix as it wasn't printing properly. Now, my other one at a different location is having paper tray issues and won't print on both sides. It's probably software related, but Canon's site is useless for this fix. Would I recommend you buy this...? Only if you've got Canon specialist on your staff.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Small Footprint, High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
  • Cons: unreliable

Love this printer

Ian, Canon
18 July 2014
  • Conclusion: I am using this printer on a Mac running Mavericks. I absolutely love the printer all bar one feature which is scanning from the computer. I have to send the scan to the Mac from the printer and I can't just rescan without going to the printer. Its a minor niggle as I actually prefer to mail scans directly from the print these days. Its a feature that we have on our ImageRunner at work and I love using it at home.
  • Pros: reliable, durable, High Quality Output, fast print speed
  • Cons: scan to pc

VERY DISAPPOINTED

FRANK, Canon
5 June 2014
  • Conclusion: IT IS A HIGH QUALITY PRINTER WITH A PRETTY GOOD SCANNER AND MANY FEATURES. HOWEVER, THE SET UP WAS A NIGHTMARE. THE USER INTERFACE IS FREQUENTLY CUMBERSOME, ESPECIALLY PRINTING ENVELOPES FROM A MAC.
  • Pros: Small Footprint, High Quality Output
  • Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup

Truly Amazing Small Business All-In-One

cy, Canon
17 April 2014
  • Conclusion: I bought this based on other reviews that it is an excellent small business solution, and I would have to agree. I have experience working with other brands in my previous careers and I have to say that this machine was very easy to set up and figure out how to use. The flow of the instructions in the manual were a bit odd, but not enough to make you think too much. The print quality is more than adequate for 99% of day to day business documents I would say.

Worth Every Penny

SeriousMultitask, Canon
8 November 2013
  • Conclusion: After squeezing the life out of yet another inkjet printer after only 2yrs, our office decided to bite the bullet & look into investing a couple more dollars for the sake of saving some serious sanity. We needed something that would be absolutely reliable at ALL of the functions we would need- wireless printing, copying, faxing, & double-sided capabilities. We were immediately impressed with this machine's speed & straight-forward easy functions.

So Much Power

Aadjuster, Canon
25 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Our office needed an additional unit to satisfy our workspace. After working with this unit over the last week we ordered 2 more to replace our existing units. This units abilities are second to none. High quality color copies, dual sided features, wireless, with a very user friendly user panel for the price, it's UNBEATABLE! We print about 2000b/w copies a week on each unit and 500 color and these units have been extremely reliable and efficient. Bravo Canon, Bravo!
