The Canon MF6580 is a multifunction monochrome laser printer designed for the home office or small office user. It has the speed and capacity to handle a fairly large volume of printing, and a host of great faxing features. Lack of an ethernet port makes it less convenient for networking.
For its affordable price, the Canon MF6580 has a lot of features. It can print, scan, copy, and fax. While many multifunction devices are doing away with faxing capabilities, users who still need to send and receive faxes will be glad to know that the MF6580 is a very full-featured fax machine. It includes a 1,000 page memory for faxes, in case faxes get lost or need to be reprinted. It has Super G3 technology for transmitting at up to 33.6 kbps, and 23 one-touch speed dials, with 100 number memory. The automatic document feeder on the MF6580 can hold up to 50 sheets, and supports duplex scanning, for scanning two-sided documents for faxing, copying, and printing. This is a very useful feature for faxing, as it means users don't have to scan both sides of a two-sided sheet separately when faxing.
Although the printer is monochrome only, the scanner can scan color documents at color depths up to 24-bit, and an optical resolution up to 600 dpi. Scanning can use either the ADF or the flatbed scanning surface, both of which can scan up to a maximum size of 8.5 x 14 inches. As the unit does not have built-in networking, scanning will only work with a computer connected directly via USB 2.0. Print speed is fairly fast at around 23 pages per minute. Print quality is excellent. Text is sharp and detailed, and graphics quality is quite good as well.
Canon MF6580 toner cartridges have a capacity of 5,000 pages. While this is not a large or excessive page yield, a home office or small office user will find that the Canon MF6580 toner cartridge will suit their needs.
Overall, the Canon MF6580 is an impressive multifunction printer, with a robust set of features, great paper capacity, and good speed and print quality. Users who need a multifunction device with a full-featured fax component will be very happy with this printer.
