Excellent Laser All in One

by Fire Fighter Mike on 2/13/2008

I have been looking for a AIO laser printer for a while. I found the Canon installation instructions to be easy to follow. Set up went flawlessly. I haven't tried the fax capabilities yet (didn't buy it for that feature - but it is nice to have). Copying, printing and scanning work great. Network printing went off w/o a hitch. Very quiet printing - also very fast. Highly recommended.

Inexpensive AIO with advanced scan to email functi

by Patrick on 2/24/2008

We have an expensive Ricoh multi-function copier/printer/scanner on lease in our office for everyone but I wanted a personal AIO in my office for confidential documents. I couldn't find a personal AIO for less than $300 that could scan to email through an ethernet connection without being connected to my notebook. The Canon MF4690 normally sells for more than $400 and when had an offer for it, it was a no brainer. The network printing was easy to set up but network settings for scan to email was a bit tricky. I am still trying to figure out how to scan directly to a shared folder on my notebook - the manuals are not very user-friendly. Network printing works well and the machine is much quieter than another Konica that I had.

Product Overview

The Office Will Never Be The Same
With the multi-purpose offerings of the imageCLASS MF4690, there will hardly be a task your office can’t handle!

With this one compact, space-saving solution, you and anyone in your office can print, scan, copy, and fax documents with impressive speed and quality. The imageCLASS MF4690 monochrome laser MFP prints and copies at speeds up to 21 pages-per-minute for letter-sized output at up to 1200 x 600 dpi print resolution. The imageCLASS MF4690 also offers advanced send features so users can scan-to-e-mail, -file, -fax, or -USB memory port in the user’s choice of JPEG, TIFF, PDF or high-compression PDF formats. The built-in networking features, along with the device’s duplexing capabilities, make it an ideal small office solution for single or multiple networked users.

For efficient output and paper conservation, the imageCLASS MF4690 MFP provides duplex output for letter-sized paper when printing, receiving faxes and copying. The duplexing capability will enable you to significantly reduce paper consumption by printing two-sided documents from a personal computer, or even incoming faxes. The unit will also copy single-sided pages to double-sided output, again reducing unnecessary paper usage. The 35-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF) easily feeds multiple pages for copying or scanning for easy-to-use office workflows.

The device’s 35-page ADF allows one-to-two sided copying, printing, and faxing and is equipped with a 250-sheet front-loading paper cassette. The MF4690 model can copy up to 8.5 inches x 14 inches (legal) from the ADF or letter-sized using the platen glass.

The imageCLASS MF4690 model uses Canon’s Single Cartridge System, which combines the toner and drum in one easy-to-replace unit, resulting in excellent image quality retention and eliminating the complication and warehousing of separate toner and drum consumables.
