Canon imageCLASS MF3010 Review: First Look

by Reads (3,030)


Late last month Canon announced seven new laser imageCLASS printers for the small office/home office audience, and one of those printers was the Canon imageCLASS MF3010. The highlight of this first look–the MF3010–is a monochrome multifunction laser printer with a compact form factor.

The MF3010 can print, scan and copy. It features a single cartridge system, print speeds of up to 19 pages per minute, a 150-sheet front-loading paper cassette and an energy saving mode. It can also create copies of identification cards or other small documents easily using the ID card copy function.

Today, we will take a look at the MF3010’s build and design, specifications, its pricing and availability, and provide several product photographs. The review of Canon’s latest SOHO laser MFP will be available next week, so don’t forget to check back if you’re in need of a speedy and compact laser printer.

The Canon imageCLASS MF3010 has an all-black design with silver accents and a glossy control panel. The dimensions lend a hand to its compact form factor at 14.7 x 10.9 x 10-inches. It weighs in at a doable 16.8 lbs without the toner cartridge installed.

The 150-sheet front-loading paper cassette tray is located on the bottom. It extends outward to fit letter, legal, A4, B5, A5, statement and executive paper sizes. The MF3010 is compatible with plain paper, heavy, bond, small document, envelopes (up to 10 – COM10, Monarch, ISO-C5, ISO-B5, DL) and labels. 

The output tray is more of a panel, and it’s located above the paper cassette. It fits up to 100 sheets. To access it, users press a button and it slides outward as seen in the photo below.

The simple glossy control panel is located above the output tray. Users can change the print and copy settings from the control panel, as well as be indicated of any problems with the printer (such as a paper jam). There are also start copy and cancel buttons. The start button is located away from the control panel, on the bottom-left of the printer.
