Overall good printer
Just got this printer yesterday. Set up was very easy. Had it up and running within an hour.
Pros: Excellent print quality. Networking is great too--you can wirelessly scan a document to pdf to your computer.
Cons: Printing is slow--much slower than a normal laser printer.
Toner saver--it has the option, but when enabled, you can barely read the page; black text comes out as light grey. There is an option to reduce toner density, but I did not notice any difference.
Envelope handling- had trouble printing return address envelopes- the printer made the margins way too wide, causing the return address to be almost in the middle of the envelope.

Another Quality Canon Product
My new Canon Color imageCLASS® MF8050Cn arrived this week and set-up was fast and easy. The starter guide got me up and running in no time. The unit was packaged very well and is a sturdy, quality product. Printing is sharp and clear - colors are good. Fax is efficient and easy to configure. Scanner and copier both work to expectations. Software was easy to install. A few notes: the machine is rather heavy...and it does not come with a LAN or USB cable. Printing is a little slower with this machine, but the quality print makes it worthwhile. I am very happy with my purchase.

Needs better software
The Canon MF8050cn is an admirable machine and the price is right. Print quality is very good. However, paper handling needs improvement as you must control the printer from the printer itself rather than the computer interface. Also, it only shos status of the toners as good or not...it doesn't give an idea of how fast you are using your toners separate color cartridges. A software rewrite should improve just about all aspects of the printer's shortcomings.

The printer is very good with one exception. With other versions of canon printesr you get software to set paper type. With this printer you must go to the printer, set the paper tpye and qaulity you want then print and then go back and reset the default you normally use. I found this a pain. When they have the ability to do the direct from the driver soft ware wht not use it.
