Canon MF4680 Printer Review
The Canon ImageCLASS MF4680 all-in-one laser printer is not labeled a "workhorse" for no reason. It can print, scan, copy, and fax, and all within a very compact design that won't take up too much space. Print speeds are fast, at up to 20 pages per minute, and printer toner costs are low, thanks to affordable Canon MF4680 toner prices.
Although the printing, copying, and faxing functions are limited to monochrome output, color scanning is supported, at resolutions up to 1200 x 2400. This provides very sharp images with great color accuracy. The 35-page automatic document feeder is also helpful for increasing productivity, as it allows users to scan, copy, or fax multiple pages quickly and easily. Features such as electronic collating add extra convenience as well.
Saving on toners is easy with the low cost of Canon MF4680 toner cartridges. The ImageCLASS MF4680 toner cartridges have a large capacity of 2,000 pages which keeps the cost per page very low and saves money on each page. The availability of compatible ImageCLASS MF4680 toner makes it possible to lower costs even more.
PC World India reviewed the MF4680 and gave it a rating of 69 out of 100. They praised the inclusion of automatic duplexing and its fast scanning speeds, but thought the cost of Canon MF4680 toner was too high, which can easily be remedied by using compatible versions. They felt that its 10,000 monthly duty cycle might be too low for more high volume users.
Overall, the Canon MF4680 is an impressive machine with many solid features. It will fit well in a home or small office with lower volume needs, where its fast speeds and low operating costs will make it a good value. Users with more high-volume needs may wish to consider a larger model, however.
