On-Demand Fixing technology and UFR II LT able to produce a fast print speeds with good quality. In terms of technology, many have indeed MF3010 Canon flagship technology. Various technologies include On-Demand Fixing. Its function is to eliminate warming up time so that devices can work right away. This technology can reduce resources usage process making more efficient. Also included support for printer language UFR II LT to improve printer performance.
Unfortunately, in terms of completeness, relatively few of its features. You will not see an ethernet port for connecting this product to a network. There are also no direct function print, fax, and full duplex. However, instead, you can print with a choice two documents up to 16 documents in 1 sheet. Although relatively compact physical size, MF3010 it can suck 450 watt power when printing. Even according to data from the specifications, these devices can suck up electrical power up to 900 watt maximum. Fortunately, on standby and sleep mode, power used this device is quite small, ie below 2.5 watt.
In terms of performance, we see this device is one of the fastest. This device incised FPOT print time 6 sec and 19 sec on five sheets mono documents (text based). This is a race. When used as a copier printing machine, the device is copying 1 text-based documents (before printing) in about 10 seconds. Furthermore, this device will print in just 16 seconds. In the application included, provided highest resolution option which is 600 dpi. This device is able to scan A4-size images within 14 seconds. Meanwhile, when scanning documents mono and color, it takes 35 seconds.
Printouts of this device is not too curvy like most laser devices, so you can still compile them easily. Overall we liked performance offered by this product. The shape is compact and does not consume a lot of places. It’s just lack some important features such as network ports and duplex function will reduce its appeal.
