Canon Copier ImageCLASS MF6590 Review
The Canon Copier ImageCLASS MF6590 is nearly indistinguishable from its sister unit, the MF6540, the major differences being only an added fax modem and network card. For a marginal increase in price, the additional Ethernet port and fax capabilities make the MF6590 the better buy for the money, though it still suffers from the core hardware’s mediocre overall print speed.
Unlike the other models in the series, the Canon Copier ImageCLASS MF6590 is equipped with fax capabilities. The unit operates using the commonly seen Super G3 33.6 Kbps fax modem that transmits at a rate of about 2 seconds per page. Segmented fax memory allows for a fax page memory that can hold a very impressive 1,000 pages. That much memory could rival pretty much any fax capable machine on the market.
The unit’s print speed of 24 pages per minute is not entirely a game ender, but it is a disappointment. The unit has not come down in price enough since its discontinuation to justify considering for purchase unless slow print speed truly is of no concern to a buyer. There are plenty of affordable 4 in 1 units out there, from Canon and otherwise, that can now run circles around this unit as far as raw performance, and even bargain hunters should take just as hard a look at what’s on the shelf today as they do at an aging unit like this.
