Canon MF8000c Drivers Download– The idea of adding a flatbed scanner and Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) to a color laser printer to make a business multifunction printer continues to grow in popularity, and the Canon i-SENSYS MF8000c is designed for small businesses or small workgroups in large companies.
It’s a pretty neat multifunction, no wider than the A4 flatbed scanner that sits on top of it. It’s pretty deep, as the in-line color laser machine runs the paper from front to back, out to the top of the printer, where there’s a cut-out next to the control panel so you can easily grab documents.
Although busy, the control panel is well laid out, with the dial-up fax panel on the right and the copy controls. In the center is a backlit five-line LCD screen, with the three main mode buttons for Copy, Fax, and Scan on the back and a navigation ring on the front. On the left are the functions related to faxing and copying and the first five-speed dial numbers. Lift this panel section to reveal another 19-speed dials, a neat way to implement dual-function keys.
There’s a front panel USB socket just below the control panel that can pick up USB drives, but it’s limited to saving scanned images as PDF files and can’t handle direct printing. This is the second multifunction printer we’ve seen recently with this limitation, which unnecessarily limits this useful USB socket.
It is a fully networked multifunction machine designed for printing and copying in an office environment. Still, it has a single 150-sheet paper tray without adding a second, even though there is a single-sheet multipurpose slot. Do we assume that Canon’s focus groups all say ‘150 sheets will be fine because we have an endless stream of work experience students whose main task is to fill the trays on our multifunction printers?
Installation is easy, with Canon’s signature multifunction software bundle and a copy of Presto! Page Manager for document management. Drivers are provided for Windows and OS X, although there is no special offer for Linux.
The color laser engine is the same as that installed in the LBP5050 and the HP Color LaserJet CP1215 and CP1515n models, among others. It’s a very simple design, where the four drums and the toner cartridge sit in a sliding tray and fall right into place. You’ll need to remove the tape from each one before starting, but otherwise, the machine is easy to install.
No odd speed claims have been made for the i-SENSYS MF8000c, with Canon quoting 12ppm for black prints and 8ppm for color. Even so, we found the numbers a little out of reach. Our five-page black text printout came in at 5.77ppm, and although we saw 9.52ppm for our 20-page test, it was far from the target figure.
Our color test came up with a speed of 4.84ppm, slightly over half the measured number. Subjectively, the machine seemed slow, and when copying a five-page text document from the ADF, it was seen that the scan finished before the first page was ejected from the printer.
Canon also claims Quick First-Print as a key feature of the machine, but it’s always 20 seconds or so from clicking Print until the first sheet starts moving through the printer. There are a lot of color lasers that take up half that time.
Print quality is as good as we’d expect from Canon, although normal black prints are slightly lighter than some of their competitors. The black text and color graphics show the high quality of the color fill, and although there is some texture to the fill area, the colors are good, and the solid areas come out well. There is a small dark circle of text on top of the colored background.
Color copies produce little degradation from the original, and color tones are reproduced well in shades very close to the original. Our photographic prints look more natural, with far fewer oversaturation characteristics than many lasers produce. However, the printer’s default 600dpi resolution is quite noticeable in a shaky pattern.
The four drums and a toner cartridge are the only consumables, which cost under £50 each and are good for 2,300 black pages and 1,500 pages of each color at ISO coverage levels. This results in a page cost of 2.91p for black and 11.88p for color. These costs are average for this color laser device, although we have seen lower costs for color pages.
