Canon imageClass D880 Printer Review
Overview: The Canon imageClass D880 is more of a copier than a printer and may lack some of the features you are looking for in a printer. It can copy 18 pages per minute which will save you time. It lacks the ability to scan and fax. Thus if you are looking for an all in one machine you should look elsewhere.
This model does come with a 30-sheet ADF and a 500 sheet cassette. Additional cassettes can be added to help handle heavy printing.
Pros: Output quality is outstanding for a monochrome laser. Text prints are about a 9 on a 10 point scale and graphics are above average. Photos are also good as well. Fonts with the Canon ImageClass D880 are readable at 4 points. All prints at 8 points are of outstanding quality. Photos and graphics both show dithering, but beat most monochrome lasers hands down.
The Canon ImageClass D880 is adaptive and flexible and comes with ethernet, USB and LPT as connection options. Printouts or of supreme quality and the speed of the machine is stellar. Best of all, the machine is easy to setup even though it is a little bulky.
With toner cartridges for this printer that have a yield of 5000 you will save money. On top of that it has excellent functionability and its preprogrammed buttons allows you to set it up the way you want.
Cons: This printer is slow when you factor in the price. It takes a long time to print Adobe Acrobat files. Furthermore the Canon Image Class D880 tends to jam which can be downright annoying when you are working on other projects.
The D880 is slow when returning control to the current application. Even on our 50-page monochrome Microsoft Word file, it took 20 seconds to return control, compared to 1 to 3 seconds with other monochrome printers.
