A low-cost mono MFP that combines fast print speeds with a useful array of features

Sitting at the top of Canon’s family of small-office mono MFPs, the MF4890dw allies 25ppm print speeds with useful features such as Canon’s 50-page duplex automatic document feeder (DADF), which can scan both sides of a page for copy, fax and scan operations.

Network installation is easy, and the setup routine also loads Presto’s PageManager 7, and Canon’s Toolbox and network scan utilities. The Toolbox’s floating menu allows for quick scans to OCR, PDF and email, while the network scan utility registers the host PC with the MFP for direct scanning to the desktop.

Wireless setup must be run from the Canon’s operator panel, but it’s quick: a WPS-assisted connection to our Netgear router was created in seconds. Wired and wireless components can’t be active simultaneously, though.

For fax operations, you can manually add address book entries from the printer’s basic web interface. Canon’s import/export software tool is handy for larger address books, but this only works with a local USB connection. Scanning to a PC is easy, since all PCs that have the network utility installed appear in the LCD panel for selection.

The MF4890dw matched its claimed print speeds. A 25-page A4 Word document took one minute, and duplex prints emerged at 16ppm. Our challenging 24-page DTP document printed in 56 seconds, but copying a ten-page double-sided document using the DADF averaged at a sluggish 4ppm. Speed remained constant across both the printer driver’s General and Publication quality settings, and there were no significant differences in output. Text remained pin-sharp, and, while photos lost detail in darker areas, there was minimal banding.

The MF4890dw is packed with features and delivers nippy print speeds - and the DADF is a boon. For only $313, Canon has put together a solid package at an appealing price.
