Designed for small offices, the Canon i-SENSYS MF-8580CDW printer is a compact all-in-one with colour, direct print, and wireless capabilities to help users streamline productivity. With fax, the Canon i-SENSYS MF8580CDW laser multifunction printer is a convenient solution for communications that lets users save money from buying separate devices, but limited expandability reduces its usefulness and efficiency in a growing workgroup.
The Canon i-SENSYS MF-8580CDW colour laser printer has an understated but sleek plastic frame that is sturdy with a matte surface. It measures 479mm tall, 484mm deep, and 430mm wide, and it runs on 512MB of shared memory. Connectivity is via Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and high-speed USB 2.0. There is a small control panel with a seven-line display screen. Paper is handled by a 250-sheet cassette, a 50-sheet multipurpose tray, and a 50-sheet duplexing automatic document feeder, while the output bin can handle 125 sheets. Canon MF-8580CDW printer cartridges produce up to 3,400 pages in black or 2,900 pages per colour toner.
The Canon i-SENSYS MF-8580CDW is Wi-Fi ready and supports wireless direct printing from tablets and smartphones. The print speed of the i-SENSYS MF 8580CDW laser printer is up to 20ppm in colour and monochrome, and there are solution keys for quick functions like secure print, eco copy, and easy scan. On-board operation is easy via the display screen, and users can save time by scanning to a USB memory key, network folder, or email. The Canon i-SENSYS MF-8580CDW colour multifunction printer supports PCL printing and two-sided printing with an automatic paper loading function. An additional 250-sheet cassette can be installed. A good range of speciality media is supported, including transparencies, coated paper, and recycled sheets. The all-in-one Canon 718 toner cartridges for this machine help to simplify the printer's maintenance.
It's impossible to expand the memory of the Canon MF-8580CDW colour printer, and the device tends to slow down when shared by over five users. It can be difficult to transport and set-up because the Canon MF8580CDW printer weighs 31Kg, and it requires more installation for the headroom with at least 851mm and about 1327mm in length. The MF-8580CDW MFP tends to be noisy while in operation, with up to 64.9dB of sound emissions. Colour print quality is not the best we've seen.
