Also announced are five monochrome laser multifunction printers: the Imageclass MF4890dw, MF4870dn, MF4820d, MF4750, and MF4720w. They share similar features, such as the new One-Touch Solution Keys on the operation panel, a new vari-angle operation panel with a 5-line LCD display, a new Quiet mode, a 250-sheet paper cassette, 128MB of RAM, enhanced color scanning resolution of up to 9,600 x 9,600 dpi, and a 6-second first page out time (FPOT) speed. Furthermore, they all use the Canon All-in-One Toner Cartridge 328 that has a standard print yield of 2,100 pages (the one that comes in the box has 1,000 pages).

The new Imageclass laser MFPs come with a tilting operation panel with one-touch keys. To reduce operation noise, there's a Quiet mode that can even be configured to run at fixed daily timings.

The printers can be positioned in a corner comfortably due to the lack of protruding parts. Even the extendable output tray (inset image) can be tucked into the body.

Leading the pack is the Imageclass MF4890dw, a 4-in-1 MFP (print, copy, scan, fax) that supports double-sided printing in all modes, wireless connectivity (802.11b/g/n), and has a generous 50-sheet duplex auto document feeder (DADF). The MF4870dn share many similarities with the MF4890dw, such as up to 25ppm print speed, 600 x 600dpi print resolution, auto duplex print, a 33.6Kbps fax modem, and Fast Ethernet support. However, it doesn't have built-in Wi-Fi and a DADF. Also, its ADF carries up to 35 sheets.

The Imageclass MF4820d is largely similar to the MF4870dn; it also has a print speed of up to 25ppm and supports automatic duplex printing. However, it doesn't come with a fax function. In addition, it has no ADF and supports a USB 2.0 connection only.

Both the Imageclass MF4750 and MF4720w print up to 23ppm. However, the MF4720w doesn't do fax and has no ADF (the MF4750 does fax, and has a 35-sheet ADF). But on the other hand, the MF4750 has neither wired nor wireless networking support, thus making it more suitable as a personal desktop printer.

The Canon Imageclass MF4890dw and MF4870dn are priced at S$549 and S$449 respectively, and they'd be in stores from end October and end September, 2012 respectively. The MF4750 and MF4720w are both priced at S$279, and they'd be in stores from end September and end October, 2012 respectively. The MF4820d will arrive in January 2013, and its price is yet to be confirmed.
