If there’s one sector of the global IT market that people have no legitimate right to complain (too much) about it’s the “small, cheap laser printer”. There was a time when laser was more expensive than printing on gold, but now not only are these little printers cheap, but they last forever, so even in a busy small office, you need have no fear of breakdown.

Sermon over, to the LBP 3010, it’s a pretty easy review to do: “It’s a small, home-use printer made by Canon, so yes, buy it”. If you must know, it prints at 14 pages per minute at a resolution of 2400 x 600 dpi and the tray supports 150 sheets of A4 paper. You can also feed other media, like thicker paper, from above the feed tray.

Another feature of the LBP 3010 is the speed to print, a very quick 8.5 seconds till first print out. If you’ve used one of these small printers before you’ll know what you’re getting.

Available for R1349. Contact Canon SA on 011-265-4900.
