When it comes to all-in-one machines that are designed to perform various tasks with efficiency and ease, Canon is one of the best manufacturers out there. This powerhouse company seems to always set the bar for excellence when it comes to office equipment and personal printers. The Canon imageCLASS MF8170c is another multifunction device that meets the high standards of a booming company. This machine can print, copy, scan and fax and do so quickly while producing professional-quality results. Though the price tag may seem a bit steep to some, the benefits of having the MF8170c in the office will justify the money spent to get it.
Speed is an important factor in the fast-paced business world. This unit copies and prints at 16 pages per minute when using black Canon MF8170c toner and 4 pages per minute in color. This is slower than average units, but should suffice for low-volume work environments. The copier can manipulate the size of a document from 50% to 200%, but the imageCLASS MF8170c toner only reaches resolutions of 600x600 dpi when making copies. However, when printing, this printer toner steps up and hits resolutions of 2400x600 dpi.
The scanner has a 24-bit color depth, which allows the machine to produce a standard resolution of 1200x2400 dpi and an interpolated resolution of 9600x9600 dpi. The fax can reach 406x391 dpi with Canon MF8170c toner. It also uses its Super 3G capabilities and transmission speed of 33.6 Kbps to send and receive faxes in only a few seconds.
There are four imageCLASS MF8170c toner cartridges in this unit—each is filled with cyan, magenta, yellow or black printer toner. The color toners will print 4,000 pages, and the black will print 5,000 pages before expiring. Replacement Canon MF8170c toner cartridges are available directly from the manufacturer or from online vendors. They are easy to find and simple to install, making maintenance on this high-quality machine minimal.
