For offices that need a large laser printer, the Canon imageCLASS MF5850dn may be a good place to look. The only problem with this machine for some may be its lack of color printing capabilities. For those who want scanning, copying, printing and faxing all in black-and-white, though, it will prove to be a worthwhile option. With a monthly duty cycle of 15,000 pages, the MF5850dn may be most comfortable in a small to midlevel office. Its size of 15.4x18.6x17 inch size will be a good fit in these work spaces as well; however, the 41 pound weight may require a few people to install or move.
Because this is a monochrome machine, it only needs one Canon MF5850dn toner cartridge. This is full of black printer toner and generally lasts about 6,400 pages before expiring. That means if the unit is used to its maximum capacity, users will need to replace the imageCLASS MF5850dn toner cartridge about 3 times every month. This could get a little expensive, but the quality exerted will be well worth the extra change spent on replacement toners.
Resolutions as high as 1200x600 dpi can be created using the imageCLASS MF5850dn toner. The first print will be produced in about 6 seconds, and pages after that will print out at speeds of 30 pages per minute using, which is pretty standard. When copying, the speeds are the same, but the Canon MF5850dn toner only reaches a distilled resolution of 600x600 dpi. Reductions and enlargements are also offered from 50%-200%, and the first copy takes about 8 seconds to be produced.
The fax is impressive too, with about 20 one-touch speed dials and 180 coded dials offered. It also offers group dialing of up to 199 destinations, as well as sequential broadcasting of up to 201 destinations. Faxes can print with an ultra fine resolution as high as 400x400 dpi using the Canon MF5850dn toner.
