The Canon L200 is a fax machine that also offers laser printing capabilities. Its design seems to be geared toward a compact size and basic functionality for a low price. Some buyers may find its features too basic for their needs, however, and both printing and faxing speeds are slow. Saving on printer toner is a bonus, as Canon L200 toner is very affordable.
The design of the unit is quite compact. It measures 15.9 inches by 14.6 inches by 15.8 inches and weighs 22 pounds. This makes it a great form factor for smaller offices where space is tight. Paper capacity is 100 sheets, which also suits the small office.
Faxing is the main focus of the L200. It features a 64-page memory for storing incoming faxes to ensure faxes aren't lost when problems arise such as paper jams. Faxes can also be sent to as many as 125 locations in sequence to save users time and effort. The unit can store up to 24 one-touch dial locations and 100 speed dial numbers.
Print resolution is 600 dpi for sharp print quality, especially text. Print speeds are fairly slow, however, at only 6 pages per minute. This will be a consideration for busy users but should be adequate for the small office. High-volume users will want faster performance, though.
Toners are inexpensive and easy to replace. Canon L200 toner cartridges have a large yield of up to 2,700 pages that results in a low cost per page. Remanufactured Canon laser printer supplies
are available and will result in even more savings for buyers.
With its affordable price and compact design, the Canon L200 is a great compromise for limited budgets. Busy users may find its slow speeds and limited features to be an issue, but Canon L200 toner costs make it a very economical package.
