If you need a multi-functioning laser unit for your small office, but only have $500 or less to spend and do not want a Canon ink
printer, you should really consider the Canon D1150. This machine can print, scan, copy and fax up to 20,000 documents each month. Though it has a very compact size of 17.7x18.6x18.3 inches, its weight is very heavy at 48.5 pounds with the toner
installed. For four machines in one, though, this weight is pretty light. Memory comes standard at 128 MB, and imageCLASS D1150 toner cartridges are inexpensive. For this unit, you are only going to maintain one printer toner that is black. The Canon D1150 toner is also easy to find and replace.
Each function on this machine has impressive features that make the D1150 stand out among the competition. The copier and printer functions, for instance, can both produce up to 30 pages per minute with imageCLASS D1150 toner. Both can also reach resolutions as high as 1200x600 dpi when using Canon D1150 toner. The copier can also reduce and enlarge documents from 50% to 200% of their size. The scanner has the ability to reach interpolated resolutions of 9600x9600 dpi, and the fax machine has transmission speeds of 33.6 Kbps. Remanufactured Canon toner
is available for the D1150.
Consumer reviews for the Canon imageCLASS D1150 are all across the board, but the majority of reviews are positive. Users find the machine very easy to setup, and most say the ease of use is very impressive as well. The quality of documents printed is almost always praised, and most find the speeds keep up with similar units in the class. Consumers who have experience with the earlier D1140, find the upgrade of adding a scanner and fax to be a valid and needed addition. Its automatic document feeder is praised often, as well as its duplex printing features, and most also find the cost of Canon D1150 toner cartridges to be right up their alley.
