Canon's latest imageCLASS printer is big and bulky, but produces some amazing prints

We've seen a number of large multifunction printers come through our labs in the past couple of months, and that trend isn't stopping any time soon as Canon has graciously sent us one of their latest and largest imageCLASS printers yet in the form of the Canon imageCLASS MF8280Cw multifunction printer.

Unboxing and setting up the MF8280Cw will most likely require more than one pair of hands as the printer is huge. Being a multifunction printer, the MF8280Cw is capable of print, copy, scan and fax. Despite its intimidating size, navigating the printer's features and options is as easy as pressing the directional buttons beside the MF8280Cw's seven-inch LCD display.

That being said, being such a big printer, the MF8280Cw comes with a host of features, including wireless printing via Canon's own Android and iOS apps, Google Cloud Print and even Apple's AirPrint. It also has a USB port which allows you to use a USB flash drive as a print source, as well as a medium for you to save your scanned files.

The MF8280Cw's paper feeder is capable of handling up to 150 sheets of paper, which is not that much when you consider how big it is. On top of that, it's not very fast either, with a first time out of about 12 seconds and an overall 14 pages per minute print out time. Yet another little niggle we had with the printer is that it is quite noisy and seems to drone before and after printing until it eventually stops.

That being said however, for all its little faults, the MF8280Cw is near flawless when it comes to print quality. Printed documents look sharp with nary a rogue ink smudge in sight, and dries almost as soon as it hits the output tray. For an office printer, it is also capable of printing excellent photo-quality prints, and you can easily set the print setting for the appropriate paper via the LCD panel on the MF8280Cw printer itself.
