    Love the sound of a laser printer in the morning.

    There's a reason I stopped buying inkjets years ago, they all eventually fail, the ink runs if wet and the print heads constantly clog. Sure enough my 2 year old Epson inkjet workstation started to fail and was burning through ink like it was going out of style. I should have known better, I've always bought lasers. Welcome the Canon imageCLASS Color Laser All in One. This thing is a beast! Easy out of the box, it's not light in weight, takes up average size amount of space. I setup mine up on our WiFi network through my Macbook Pro. It comes with a CD to install your drivers, amazing anyone still ships CDs, thank goodness I have a drive. After that it was just about connecting the printer to the wireless network and it was done. Easy, took about 5 minutes. When this thing fires up you know you're in business, none of that wimpy inkjet stuff, no more runny inks. For a laser this one is pretty quiet, you hear it, but it's nothing out of the ordinary and is kind of pleasant because you know you're getting things done. I've been sending signage wirelessly to print with no problems, quality is crisp and clean and as vivid as any pro color laser, no breaks or pattern lines in solid color fills. There's only one main tray for paper, it holds a pretty thick stack. For printing on thicker paper it's a single sheet feeder right above the main tray on the front. So you send something to print, choose multi-drive tray and insert your thick stock, label sheet or whatever. It works pretty well, I did get a couple paper jams using thick stock, fairly easy to remedy and the onboard screen tells you how to fix it. Otherwise the jams have been pretty rare utilizing different thick stocks. It powers down fairly quickly after printing and goes into sleep mode. No problems sending prints while it's sleeping, wakes up shortly after processing. This printer is pretty awesome for the price, better get yourself one.

    Broke down in less than 3 years

    Our household doesn’t print stuff regularly. We usually go for weeks or months without printing anything, then go for bursts of 100-200 pages. We don’t print photos but printing colored is a must. I had an old Brother B&W printer (bought used) and it had served me well for 3 years so I decided to skip those Ink printers and just splurge for a colored laser printer. Luckily these went on sale so I was able to get it for almost half the price, otherwise I wouldn’t buy one. Toners - well they always cost a lot (usually around $50 per color), but they print a lot of stuff. High yield would get you around 1000+ pages so it’s worth the price. Make sure you don’t get remanufactured ones because it can damage your expensive printer. Printing is fast and smooth. Has duplex printing as well. Printing images are not as on point as inkjet but it prints them really fast. Not something you’ll frame but it’s perfect for like PowerPoint slides and some notes. Scanning is a godsend on this printer. I never knew I needed one until I had this. Has a document feeder so it makes scanning a breeze. No back to back scanning though but there’s a software for that. Printer’s touchscreen is kinda meh, wish they used a more responsive panel or just went with actual buttons instead. Kinda makes copying through the printer a chore. Reason it got 3 stars from me is it started making weird noises and black streaks that no amount of cleaning will fix on the 2nd year of ownership. Started happening when we moved the printer due to rearranging our office room. It was still under warranty but it’s not easy to claim with Canon. You have to bring the printer to a service center, they’ll check it, and give a verdict if they will cover it. Luckily I had a GeekSquad replacement plan. I got it replaced and got another replacement plan for the new one, and so far it hasn’t failed me….yet.

    I really liked the printer but after few days printer is going to error mode E733-0005. I called Canon and they said to return as it has faulty hardware. Poor quality control. Got a. Replacement and hopefully it’s not a defective item.

    This printer was easy to set up. My Mac identified it instantly and could print right away. I needed to download the driver for my PC. Prints straight from email files on my iphone or from a jump drive easily. Really nice functionality. I printed address labels effortlessly. 2 things I don’t like: 1) you can’t use a wireless and wired connection at the same time. So if you want to print from a wireless connection, you have to unplug the USB. It is either/or. Just an annoying extra step. 2) it does not duplex copy. So if you want to make two-sided copies, you have to scan them and then print them manually. The duplex printing feature is nice though, I just assumed that it would duplex copy as well, but I understand that’s only available the next model series up. Overall, I really like the printer and am happy I bought it.

    Bought this printer because for the price point (especially on black friday) and feature-set, other options simply didn't compare for value. We use it for making simple color product labels and miscellaneous infrequent printing and scanning. It was fairly easy to setup and works well. The duplex printing is nice. Wireless/Airprint support out of the box made connecting to it in my house a simple affair. There are ample administrative options in the printer's web UI, to make the most of its features (ldap, user management, smb destinations, email, etc...), though not all options are intuitive. I have printed a color photo just to see how it would do. It's no photo inkjet, but it did better than I expected.

    The printer is replacing an older laser printer. I was looking for a multi-purpose color laser printer. I currently used an inkjet multi-purpose printer, but when I don't use the printer I have drying-ink-reservoir anxiety. Printer was super simple to setup. Basically unwrap it from box and plug it in. It found my WIFI network quickly, once the password was set I was done. Prints like a champ wirelessly from anywhere in my home. So far it's working well. I would purchase a dust cover, it's large and looks like it would attract a lot of dust on top.

    Item arrived on time and well packed. First glance I thought it’s a judge box, thought of returning it back due to size. But glad i didn’t . Easy to setup, step by step guides you through setup on print and scan. I am using through wireless network and it works like a charm. No complaints so far!

    Firstly, the service from Best Buy was exceptional. All the main retailers, on line and in store, could not guarantee delivery nor supply a similar specification color laser printer, at the offer price, below $300. My printer was ordered on line, my local store suggesting the earliest they could deliver would be 8-14 days. I received my unit within 48 hours of order! Thank you Best Buy and UPS, REALLY EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE! The printer/copier from my limited time with it, is just the best quality and efficiency, completely outdoing any inkjet I’ve owned. I am 100% satisfied and delighted. My only question, there is a piece, photo below, I have no idea how or where it fits! No instruction though it’s shown on inventory but not explained in manual.

    Print quality is excellent , The setup connecting to the network was very simple, Scanning to a computer from the all in one printer couldn't be easier and checking supply levels from your computer is an added bonus. Anyone looking to upgrade to a laser printer won't be disappointed. I've owned several color laser printers and this one is the best so far! The only issue was figuring out the plastic piece that came with the printer was. It turns out it is for when you use legal size paper it covers the open portion of the paper tray when using legal sized paper 8 1/2" x 14". not mentioned in the instructions. See photos.

    Just what I needed, a reliable printer that correlates with my multitasking lifestyle. This printer as proven to be very effective in my home office. Fast printing, with no messy ink cartridges to change I can appreciate this printer. Although, I have had a paper jam it was an easy fix, with the monitor displaying where the jam is located. I’m giving 4 stars because, i haven’t had the printer long enough to know the longevity.

    Great color laser unit for the price. MF642Cdw

    Posted .

    I bought this Canon MF642CDW on sale online at Best Buy for $269 on 3/6/21. I have been using this a lot- almost 2000 pages since I purchased it three weeks ago. The color is very vivid, even for photos.the black-and-white is great. All printing is smudge proof. It was very easy to set up. The only problem I had is that it has been making a loud plastic popping noise since I first started using it. I tried calling canon every day for the first two weeks and I was on hold for over an hour each time so I’d hang up. 14 days was the return policy for Best Buy and I needed to know if this popping sound was normal. When I finally got through to Canon, they really couldn’t offer much help and said that if it was too late to take it back to Best Buy, I could always return it to them for a refurbished unit. They said it is warranted for three years, but they always give you refurbished units. So I did not want to trade a brand new unit for a refurbished unit so I’m just going to see what happens with the popping sound. Other than that, Everything is great. The cartridges seem like they still have plenty of toner even after 2000 pages. It is a noisy printer. I used to be able to print with people sleeping in the next room and it did not wake them up. This one is loud. It’s almost like a quiet vacuum cleaner. It turns on this fan mode or something- I don’t know if it’s to keep it cool or what. But sometimes it runs even well after the printing is done. I’ve gotten used to the sound, I just have to be careful on the time of day we print. I am very pleased with how easy it is to install the toner cartridge. They just simply set in the unit, no locking or clicking into place. Then when you close the door it clicks it where it needs to be to secure it in. Very intuitive. I have stuck with Canon and have had three laser units prior to this one. I like Canon better than HP and Brother. They work better for the laser and the cartridges are cheaper. I have been using laser printers exclusively for the past 16 years. This is a very heavy unit. I think 67 pounds. Feels very solid. I love it and the fact that it is color laser as well. For the price I would have to give it five stars. It is very well-suited for small and even medium size businesses.

    I love my new printer, is modern, elegant and compare with all my other laser printer it doesn't consume as the others, and if you buy the HC cartridge you will print tons of more copies than the competitors... Plus is super fast printing, auto double side printing, has the color LCD that allow you to use it as a smartphone... Then other features that is didn't notice before purchase, but I really needed and I think is INDISPENSABLE, is the opening in the front that allows you to print any other different format or paper type, that one you have on the regular container, so basically if you need to print a envelope but in the container you have the LTR format, you can insert the envelope on the front open, and it will print it without having you remove all the LTR papers from the container... Love it, you can find also compatible cartridges with high capacity at the same price of other brands toner that print only half of the copies you can print with this Canon....

    It's never failed me. Prints every time. Print quality is superior. However, I was using it for my business and after 2 months of use, it leaves black splotches all over the papers. I can no longer print stickers, photos or anything for selling purposes. I've cleaned it numerous times and still won't stop leaving stains. I just use it for invoice printing now, but it still looks unprofessional.

    Easy to setup. Easy to use. Only issue is I have to parts left over; not sure for what they are used or where they go.
