Canon MF4370dn: The small office companion
The imageCLASS MF4370dn is a monochrome MFD from Canon, aimed at being an all purpose solution for offices.
This MFD is dark grey in colour with the buttons and controls of this device on a silver bezel. A small display is also present on this bezel. The cassette tray comes with a dust cover that does not completely attach, but is just left atop the tray. It also has a multipurpose tray that supports single sheets, located above the paper cassette slot. You can quickly select between Copy, Fax and Scan. There are also buttons to change the size of the document, change the image quality either and also to set the order of the prints. The MF4370dn also offers two-sided printing and copying. PC Fax is also possible and so is networking. Network scanning is also possible with this MFD. The first print of a text document took 12.1 sec. Individual prints in both standard and economy mode were tested and they took 9.5 sec each. The print quality in both standard and economy mode were identical, making it wiser to print using economy mode so as to save on the toner. But this was only the case for text documents. It took 16.8 sec to print our test PDF document in economy mode and 20.3 sec in standard mode. The quality of the images were almost identical with slight brightness missing in economy mode.
Overall, this printer has some good print speeds and well the quality is also way above average. This makes a good buy for small to medium sized businesses looking for a fast feature rich printer that doesn’t need a PC for its operation.
