4 out of 5 eggsSmall Business/Home Office

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

Other Thoughts: 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. I have tried a few pictures and have been disappointed. Most color inkjet printers will blow this printer away in terms of quality.

The scanner works great. You install a small piece of software on each PC you want to scan to, choose that PC from the list, and wha-lah. Saved on that PC as a PDF or image as you specified.

Faxing took some playing but that is because I'm using a MagicJack. Works well after getting it setup right.

Copying works well and is as expected with print speed.

I didn't realize how heavy this printer would be. If I remember right it is close to 80 pounds.

5 out of 5 eggsCanon Color imageCLASS MF8080Cw

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. The scanning software that Canon provides with this is terrible. It doesn't offer as many options as the scanning software my Canon MX700 did and the resolution doesn't go to 1200 DPI as advertised. It won't even do 600 DPI like my old Inkjet.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

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 pricey
scan quality is okay
copy speed is fair.

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

I have not used the Fax, Wireless or USB options

I would say this would be an decent choice for a home office assuming the fax works as well as the rest of the machine and you don't mind the small paper tray.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Printer

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.

Other Thoughts: I have not used the fax functionality. Overall it is a nice machine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat printer for the money

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.

Other Thoughts: 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. Scanning was good too with remote scan I can get up to 1200 dpi. Haven't tried the fax yet.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for personal use.

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.

Other Thoughts: 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. Just takes longer to warm up which is expected of any laser printer. The paper tray does only hold about a third of a ream of paper. Doesn't matter to me though since I print so little. Toner cartridges are somewhat pricey but they include the drum and all the parts that will wear out so you only have to ever change the cartridge. I will probably try manually refilling the cartridge because of this. 3rd party cartridges are not terrible but I have yet to try them.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Alternative to Inkjets

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 copies out of the starter toner than I expected, just shy of 900 prints, mostly legal sized docs.

Cons: I wish the paper hopper was deep enough to hold a full ream of paper.

Other Thoughts: 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. Not the greatest color printer. Don't expect full on glossy prints from your vacation. However, adding a touch of color to a resume, instructions or flyer it is great. The USB navigation can be a bit clunky if your memory card is poorly organized.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good

Pros: Print quality = very high. Wifi no problems.

Cons: It is BIG.

Other Thoughts: 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

2 out of 5 eggsPrice was very good!

Pros: Fast scans, excellent color print quality, low price.

Cons: Won't automatically remote scan. When set up to "remote scan", you can't print. That's another trip to the machine.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a Brother MFC-7440n, because I wanted to print color occasionally. After all the scanning and printing hassles, I re-installed the Brother as my primary MFC. The Canon will be relegated to the other room as a specialty, color printer.

4 out of 5 eggsBest printer price value I ever had.

Pros: Price and scan speed super fast. High quality prints even though I am used to inkjet prints.

Cons: Sometimes stops during printing to align and you have to set the machine for remote scan when using acrobat, but the plus is you can scan from the unit and send images to the computer by working with the Canon alone. The paper tray only holds the equivalent of a very small printer. Having said all this, the low price makes me ignore any negatives and I just bought my 4th unit in 2 months, three for home and office use and one I am donating to my congregation.
