The Canon MF6500 is a multifunction monochrome laser printer designed for the home or small office user. Its compact design is perfect for tight spaces, but it still has nearly every feature a user would need. Lack of fax capability might be an issue for some users. The price may also be an issue and therefore the Canon MF5770 toner printer is worth consideration.
One of the major benefits of the Canon MF6500 is its extremely compact size. The unit manages to fit a lot of functionality into a very small package, which is essential for home users who have limited space available. Paper handling is quite large for the machine's size. The main tray holds 500 sheets for input, and a multipurpose tray holds up to 100 sheets, depending on the type of media.
The MF6500 uses Canon's Single Cartridge System. With this system, the drum and toner are both contained in one unit, so that replacing the toner cartridge also replaces the drum. This ensures that both parts are fresh, and eliminates the need to replace each part separately. This has the disadvantage of possibly replacing the drum earlier than necessary, but it is more convenient for the user. Canon MF6500 toner cartridges have a capacity of around 5,000 pages each, which is impressive given the cost and size of the MF6500.
The MF6500 includes a 50-page automatic document feeder for automatically scanning or copying multiple pages at once. There is also a flatbed scanning surface for documents that won't fit through the feeder. The printer can print, scan, and copy, but it does not have faxing capabilities.
Print speed is an impressive 23 pages per minute, which is fast for the price. Print quality is sharp and detailed. Text is particularly impressive, and even graphics printing is above average for a laser printer. The printing engine is capable of 600 dpi printing.
Overall, the Canon MF6500 is a great value for the price. It fits a lot of functionality into a compact design that will be very appealing to home and small office users.
