The Canon i-SENSYS MF-5840dn is a compact and workgroup-friendly multifunction printer that promises lower running costs and energy efficiency per use. The Canon i-SENSYS MF5840dn laser multifunction printer offers time-saving benefits like direct printing capabilities and an auto duplexer for the scanner, copier, and printer, but creative users should consider other options that can print in colour.
The i-SENSYS MF-5840dn is truly a space-saver with its small footprint , which measures 390mm wide, 431mm tall, and 472mm deep. Despite its simple appearance, the Canon i-SENSYS MF-5840dn weighs 19.4Kg, runs on 128MB of shared memory, and can accommodate up to 250 sheets at a time in its standard paper cassette. The MF5840dn monochrome laser printer includes a 50-sheet DADF (duplex auto-document feeder) on top, plus a separate 50-sheet multi-purpose tray for special types of media like transparencies, recycled paper, and labels. The control panel consists of a 2-line, 10-character backlit display screen for ease in operation.
A colour scanner, copier, and a monochrome printer are combined in one convenient and compact device. The Canon MF-5840dn is energy-efficient, warms up fast, and produces output at impressive speeds of up to 30ppm. It is possible to scan directly to a USB flash drive, network folder, or to email, while users can save further time and resources with the auto duplexer and automatic document feeder. The Canon i-SENSYS MF-5840dn printer can easily be shared using the 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX interface.
The printer only does black-and-white printing, limiting the overall efficiency and usefulness of the Canon i-SENSYS MF-5840dn multifunction printer among creative workgroups. The device needs a more intuitive scanner that can reproduce better colours. Setting up the Canon i-SENSYS MF-5840dn laser printer can be challenging for first-timers, and operation can be overwhelming because of the busy control panel.
