As monochrome laser multifunction models go, the Canon imageCLASS MF6160dw manages to fit a lot of functionality into a very compact design. Its printing, copying, scanning, and faxing features are all robust, and its price is affordable. Buyers also won't break the budget replacing imageCLASS MF6160dw printer toner.
The MF6160dw includes automatic duplexing for simple two-sided output that can help conserve paper. A Toner Saver mode can also reduce the usage of Canon MF6160dw toner. Wi-Fi support frees up the choice of location, especially for small offices with limited network ports. The wireless support goes a bit further, however, with mobile printing from iOS devices as well as Google Cloud Print features and a feature that allows users to print from virtually any device that can send an email.
A USB port on the front of the machine supports flash drives and other storage devices, and users can save scanned documents directly. The 5-line control panel is a bit limiting, as it doesn't provide previews or thumbnails, so direct printing requires users to know the file name ahead of time.
For quicker scanning, the unit includes a 50-sheet automatic document feeder with duplexing to handle two-sided originals. The initial paper capacity is divided among a 250-sheet main tray and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray, with a 500-sheet tray available as an upgrade option.
There are two sizes of replacement toners available, allowing users to control costs more effectively. The standard Canon MF6160dw toner cartridge can provide around 2,300 pages of output, while the high capacity version has a yield of up to 6,400 pages. Compatible imageCLASS MF6160dw toner cartridges are also available, for much lower prices than OEM equivalents.
If it weren't quite so bulky, the MF6160dw might be a good candidate for busy home users. As it stands, however, it is a great value for small offices with a need for its multiple functions, but with a small budget to work with. The affordability of Canon MF6160dw toner might just be its most winning feature.
