This review is from: Canon imageCLASS MF4890dw MFP Up to 26 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer
Pros: This isn't like the old laser printers where the printer needs to warm up before it is ready to print. From energy saving standby mode to output of the first page is well under 10 seconds. Print quality is good and it does everything you want from a multi-function printer
Cons: I've only used the printer via wireless. The scanning utility is a bit unreliable. Sometimes I'll use the auto document feeder or the plate glass, and about 5% of the time, it has some sort of scanning error. I can't figure out why.
The interface is really clunky. I have the printer in another room. If I need to scan a document there are 2 ways. Place document, set it to remote scan, go to computer and initiate scan. If you have multiple pages, then you need to put the next page in and then scan the next page from the computer.
If you are initiating the scan from the printer, you can pick the computer and it will start scanning. However, without being at your computer, you won't know that the page has finished processing and can only begin scanning the next page after that fact. Again, not an issue if the printer is right next to the computer.
Obviously you could use the auto document feeder, but it has a lot of trouble, especially with mailed documents that have been folded in thirds. Even straightening the paper out as best as you can, the printer struggles.
Another big con is the slow scanning speed over wireless. Even though you hear the scanning only taking a few seconds, it takes well over 1 minute before it is fully processed. Over the wireless network, even at 54mpbs, it still takes over a minute? Why?
Other Thoughts: Wireless option is great if the computer is in close proximity to the printer, if it isn't it can be quite annoying to utilize the scanning function. Other than that, it is fast, and quiet. If you're looking for laser MF printer, it does the job.
