Canon ImageClass MF3010 review: Easy printing for cash-strapped students

Though it's lacking Wi-Fi and an autodocument feeder, the Canon ImageClass MF3010 laser printer's strong performance and versatile features have appeal for students and home offices on a budget.

The Canon ImageClass MF3010 multifunction monolaser printer is best suited for dorm rooms and small offices that require a simple laser printer for outputting e-mails, Web articles, recipes, and other print jobs that don't require full color.

Priced at $150, it's one of the least expensive overall values for an all-in-one laser (print, scan, copy), but the trade-off is that you don't get extra features like an autodocument feeder for hands-free scans, or the benefit of multiuser networking.

Instead, the MF3010's killer app is its speed--it sailed through our performance tests with no pauses or jams, and we recommend it to anyone looking for a straightforward, dependable laser printer for personal use.
