As a multifunction laser printer that is quite compact, buyers might take a look at the affordable price of the Canon imageCLASS MF4880dw and assume it is limited in features. In fact, it can print and copy at speeds of up to 26 pages per minute, and can also handle faxing and scanning. It includes wireless networking and duplexing for added convenience, and uses affordable Canon MF4880dw printer toner to keep operating expenses down.
Sometimes referred to as the MF4880, the addition of duplex printing and wireless support are the main upgrades from the similar MF4770n. It is generally worth the small bump in price, especially for the wireless support, but two-sided copying and scanning are only supported in the upgraded MF4890dw model. The device itself is quite compact, measuring 14.2x15.4x14.3 inches, and weighing just 28 pounds with the imageCLASS MF4880dw toner installed.
One of the few minor complaints about the unit might be its fairly small 5-line LCD display. While it would have been nice to see a larger color display, one can hardly complain at such a low purchase price. Instead, the control panel offers a wide array of buttons to control most functions, without the need to dig into menus for the most common tasks.
Prices for Canon MF4880dw toner cartridges can get a little high, especially the OEM versions, so users may want to choose compatible Canon MF4880dw toner instead, at a fraction of the cost. Each imageCLASS MF4880dw toner cartridge can provide an impressive 2,100 pages, so users won't find themselves replacing toners often.
The MF4880dw makes a nice upgrade from previous models, but those who don't need its duplexing and wireless networking support could save the additional cost. Home users and small offices will find a lot to like in the unit's space-saving design and fast output speeds.

The Canon imageCLASS MF4880dw boosts the connection options from other models in its lineup with the addition of wireless networking support. It also includes a Quiet Mode for small office environments, and it can print up to 26 pages per minute. Automatic duplexing is supported for both copying and printing.
Although the model shown differs in appearance, the process is the same.
Lift the top portion of the printer to open the access panel. You then need to open a smaller panel for access to the imageCLASS MF4880dw toner cartridge. Grab it by the handle on top, and lift it up and out of the printer.
Prepare the new Canon MF4880dw cartridge for installation by carefully removing it from the box, the packing materials, and the plastic bag. Redistribute the toner by shaking the cartridge side to side a few times, as it may have settled during shipping.
Look for the loop of tape at one end, and place a finger inside it before pulling it straight out. Grab the black paper that protects the drum and pull it away from the cartridge to remove it.
Insert the imageCLASS MF4880dw cartridge into the opening and slide it down into the printer, giving it a firm press to make sure it is seated at the bottom. Lower the small toner panel, then slowly lower the access panel to make sure it doesn’t slam shut.
You are now ready to resume printing with your Canon imageCLASS MF4880dw printer.
