Canon imageCLASS MF8170C is the first colored laser printer that sells for under a thousand dollars, bringing a new era of affordable laser color technology even for office, small, or home. If you are looking for a printer that means a business, the £ eighty imageCLASS MF8170C is a good place to start. With heavy weight constraints, and large dimensions of 20.1 “x 20.2” x 25.2 “, you will expect there not only to be color print technology under the tent, but also a lot of power.
The Canon imageCLASS MF8170C can perform the achievement that some other laser printers can: color copy the laser
full. Monochrome laser printers may be literally half the size of these units and weight, but they are limited to black and white printing and copying, while the MF8170C can pull off the tone on the clarity of the tone, keeping your copy true to the original. Resolution is at a minimum, positioning it at 600 x 600 dots per inch for the copy, making the photo reproduction color suffer from significant quality drops. However, much higher print resolution, along with scans. If one person really wants, they can only scan the image quality and print it directly from the computer for higher resolution results.
With the coupled charge of an optical device scan rated at 1200 clear x 2400 dots per inch, and interpolated the scan at 9600 thanks to dpi with comfortable flatbed design of the hardware, the picture quality scan is not a problem. Print resolution is also very high, ranging from 600 x 600 dots per inch along the way up to 2400 x 600 dots per inch in both monochrome and color.
Speed is not a factor when printing in black and white, as Canon imageCLASS MF8170C runs at a speed of 16 pages per minute. When printing in full color, however, you will have to wait a bit longer, such as printing tops on 4 pages per minute for paper-size or picture documents.
Faxing is fast enabled by a 33.6 Kbps Super G3 modem, at a resolution of up to 406 x 391 dots per inch. Unfortunately, unlike some super high end machines out there, the Canon imageCLASS MF8170C can not pull from a colored fax, but it is expected for units with such reasonable price tags, such as color faxes specifically for industrial-grade printers, and, in e -Emergent mills, limited apps to get started.
Given the price, and thin size of the unit, network capabilities are a must for medium-level laser. A built in Ethernet port and network card allows Canon imageCLASS access MF8170C network, and USB 2.0 high speed ports are also implemented for individual settings.
Just like a monochrome laser, the full MF8170C operates on a toner cartridge system, but with three cellphone units and one black, a four-cartridge system is implemented to produce 48 bit output. The Canon imageCLASS MF8170C uses this technology effectively, and cost effective, affordable, even for small offices.
