The Canon imageCLASS MF216n is quite a compact multifunction laser printer considering it can print, scan, and copy and has output speeds of up to 24 pages per minute. As a result, it is a great choice for small offices that need to handle a variety of tasks, but the cost of imageCLASS MF216n printer toner is something to consider ahead of time, especially on a tight budget.
As the main model of the MF216 series, the MF216n includes networking capabilities with an ethernet port included, but it does lack the wireless networking of other similar models from the manufacturer. Networking features also include mobile printing from smartphones and tablets, and Canon's Mobile Scanning platform allows users to save their scanned documents to the same mobile devices quite easily. This has the added benefit of saving Canon MF216n toner and paper by embracing digital workflows.
One of the notable upgrades of this model is the inclusion of an automatic document feeder that can hold up to 35 sheets for scanning, and can even handle duplex documents. The main paper tray holds up to 250 sheets, and the unit includes a single-sheet bypass slot as well for alternative media. Unfortunately, the paper capacity is not upgradable, which could be a deal breaker for small offices expecting to grow in the near future.
Even with its low purchase price, replacing toners is another matter. The Canon MF216n toner cartridges are more expensive than those of many competing models, adding to the long-term expense. With a yield of 2,400 pages for each imageCLASS MF216n toner cartridge, users may need to replace them fairly often under heavy use.
The low price and compact design of the MF216n make it a very attractive option for small offices, and its high-quality output, solid speeds, and mobile printing features help as well. Sadly, the high cost of Canon MF216n toner makes it fairly expensive to operate.
