Buyers might be surprised at the compact design of the Canon imageCLASS MF8280Cw color laser printer, as well as the base model, the MF8280, but it still offers the excellent output quality expected of the imageCLASS line. Print speeds of 14 pages per minute and a first page out time of 18 seconds are not overly impressive, but Canon MF8280Cw printer toner prices are affordable enough to make up for some of its shortcomings.
The additions to the MF8280Cw model from the base model mainly include wireless support, which also extends to mobile printing through Apple's AirPrint and Google Cloud Print. This makes it very convenient to use in a small office, where users might need to print from many types of devices.
The unit can handle the four major tasks of printing, copying, faxing, and scanning, despite measuring only 16.9x19.1x17 inches, though the weight of 65 pounds (including the imageCLASS MF8280Cw toner supplies) might be off-putting for home or very small office environments. At the same time, the 150-sheet main tray may be too much of a limitation for busy small offices, which need more capacity for heavier workflows.
Replacing toners and the associated costs are always a concern with a laser model, but imageCLASS MF8280Cw toner cartridges are pretty affordably-priced. Though the cost per page for Canon MF8280Cw toner cartridges is higher than users would get from larger machines, this is to be expected for such a compact and affordable device.
With its solid wireless and mobile printing support, and easy-to-use features, the MF8280Cw is worth a look for a small office that needs high-quality color prints. Those who need more capacity or want a lower cost per page than the Canon MF8280Cw toner supplies provide will find it in other models for a bit more money, however.
