The Canon imageCLASS MF8210Cn is a color laser printer that
has a midrange price and is aimed at the smaller ofﬁce setups. Its outward
design is quite straightforward; this is after all a printer and not part of
your ofﬁce décor.
printer with mobile printing capabilities.
Simple solution for the modern business
You can connect to the MF8210Cn via USB or Ethernet, and
while you can print and scan directly to your iOS or Android mobile device via
the Canon Mobile Printing app, it means having to hook the printer up to a
router since it doesn’t come with built-in Wi-Fi. There’s also a USB port on
the printer that allows you to print JPEG, TIFF and XML ﬁ les from a USB ﬂ ash
Since the MF8210Cn does not have an ADF, paper handling is limited
to the input tray. It can handle 150 sheets of paper; this printer isn’t meant
for high volume use, making it a more suitable addition to smaller or home ofﬁces.
It doesn’t come with a duplexer as well, so you will have to manually ﬂip the
pages over if you are printing double-sided documents.
MF8210Cn reduces environmental impact with Sleep Mode power consumption
as low as 1W. Energy Star Typical Energy Consumption (TEC) is 0.4kWh/week.
The MF8210Cn is pretty quick in terms of print speed; it
churns out 14 pages per minute for monochrome documents, and 13 pages per
minute for documents with colored graphics and images. The print quality for
colored graphics and images is pretty good, with decent color saturation. The
MF8210Cn does miss out on being one of the best as its image and graphics sharpness
falls behind the top performers in this category. This is understandable as
both the print and scan resolutions are lower than the top performers in this
category. Copy quality belongs does end up in the upper spectrum, though the
MF8210Cn performs below expectations when it came to color photo prints. Oddly,
prints displayed a strong red cast no matter how much we tweaked the color
management settings; color accuracy takes a signiﬁcant hit here.
proprietary On-Demand Fixing Technology transfers heat directly to the ceramic
heating element, reducing warm-up time to the bare minimum and enabling a quick
If speed is one of your major concerns, the MF8210Cn is a
good option with its print and copy speeds. Print quality can be considered
above average, though we’ve seen better elsewhere. We also feel that the
MF8210Cn isn’t really suited for printing photo images despite doing quite well
when printing documents that had colored graphics and images. It’s a suitable
printer for smaller and home ofﬁces if you can look past its ﬂaws.
