Canon imageClass MF445dw Review at PCMag



Canon’s imageClass MF445dw prints well at impressive speed for the price,
making it a good value among mono laser all-in-ones.

MSRP $349.00


  • Expandable paper capacity, with two input sources
  • Speedy output
  • Relatively compact
  • Single-pass ADF
  • Large, customizable touch control panel


  • Photo output quality could be better

A small step up from our 2019 Best Printer of the Year, the Canon imageClass MF424dw, the imageClass MF445dw ($349) is also a monochrome laser all-in-one machine designed for small and midsize offices and workgroups. Like its sibling, the MF445dw prints well and swiftly; its paper capacity is expandable; and it comes with a wealth of productivity and convenience features, including a single-pass, auto-duplexing automatic document feeder (ADF) for sending two-sided multipage documents to the scanner. Overall, the imageClass MF445dw is a terrific little all-in-one, though—like many of its laser-based competitors—it costs just a bit too much to use to qualify for an Editors’ Choice. Otherwise, it’s ideal for churning out several hundred black-and-white prints and copies each month.
