As a compact multifunction laser printer, the Canon imageCLASS MF227dw can handle the varying needs of a personal user or a micro office. It has output speeds of up to 28 pages per minute, includes an automatic document feeder, and supports both wired and wireless networking. The main downside is that Canon MF227dw printer toner is expensive to replace.
While not as small as some competing models, the MF227dw is quite compact given its printing, scanning, and copying features. It measures 14.2x15.4x14.6 inches, and it weighs 28.2 pounds with the imageCLASS MF227dw toner supply in place. Its compact size comes at a cost, however, as the paper tray holds only 250 sheets, which is probably too small for many small office environments. The paper capacity is not upgradable either, though it does include a 1-sheet multipurpose tray.
As part of the MF227 series, the highlights of the MF227dw model are its automatic duplexing and wireless networking features. It also supports AirPrint for printing from Apple devices, and Canon's own apps allow for both printing from and scanning to mobile devices, even on the Android platform. The touchscreen display makes it easier to navigate menus and preview images, and the automatic document feeder can hold up to 35 sheets for quick scanning tasks.
While the unit is designed for personal users and micro offices, the cost of toners could be out of their reach. Canon MF227dw toner cartridges are more expensive than those of competing models in its class. This makes the cost per page of imageCLASS MF227dw toner cartridges much less appealing. Unfortunately, third-party alternatives to Canon MF227dw toner are also difficult to find.
With features like a quiet mode for low-volume operation and a compact design that won't consume too much space, the Canon MF227dw would be very appealing to tight office spaces. With expensive supplies, however, it fails to appeal to those users with tight budgets.
