What Users like about the product
· small footprint
Jada Plume – I could not believe that such a tiny printer is actually a multi-function device. It fits wonderfully in my home office, and works well in each capacity.
Jeffrey Smith – This printer was meant for my two adolescent sons. Naturally enough, I wanted something durable, and decided on the Canon Color imageCLASS MF8050Cn. I am very pleased to say that Canon has delivered yet again on its reputation for reliable and durable products. In fact, I think I will buy a Canon Color imageCLASS MF8050Cn for my own home office and get rid of the Lexmark I have in there now.
What users don't like about the product
· slow printing
· poor quality printing
Tammy Eden – Even though I don't need an enormous amount of speed from a printer, this one was truly substandard. It seemed to take forever for information to get to the printer, and then actually start. In fact, when I first got the printer, I reset it several times thinking there was something wrong.
Roger Garth – Since Canon has always had a good reputation for good quality printing, I did not hesitate to buy this printer, even though the dpi is shabby. Sadly, I have an older Canon printer with a lower resolution that works much better than this one.
Overall, we feel the Canon Color imageCLASS MF8050Cn is suitable for both home and office use. Since it is durable and reliable, you can easily use it as your primary printer and multi-function device. That said, if you want better quality printing, it might be of some help to buy a printer with a higher dpi rating, or even a laser printer.
