Canon 2200 Printer Review
The Canon imageCLASS 2200 functions primarily as a copier, but also incorporates a printer, fax machine and scanner to provide users with a low-cost multifunction device. The unit takes approximately 15 seconds to warm up and is capable of duplicating monochrome documents at moderately fast speeds compared to other affordable laser copiers, at a maximum of 17 pages per minute. This 4-in-1 device offers an array of expandable features, long-lasting imageCLASS 2200 printer toner and quick enough speeds to support those working out of small or home offices.
The ability to handle a duty cycle of up to 50,000 pages per month, copy up to 99 duplicates from an original document and 6 MB of RAM make the 2200 a suitable choice to support medium volumes. The option to upgrade its standard media handling of 350 pages to a maximum of 600 pages is a convenience for those looking to increase productivity. The unit also comes with a 50-sheet automatic document feeder that can scan and copy large jobs without interruption.
One of this copier's setbacks is its large size of 14x23x25 inches and weight of nearly 100 pounds, which makes it too bulky to fit on a desktop, particularly for a home office environment. The device comes with a flexible control panel that will allow users to dial fax numbers, enlarge or reduce the size of copies, track job progress with the monochrome LCD, and keep tabs on Canon 2200 toner levels. Users can connect and print from either their personal computer through the standard USB port, or through a network with the ethernet interface.
The unit uses a single black imageCLASS 2200 toner supply that can copy documents with a resolution of 600x600 dpi. Affordable toners keep running costs low since each replacement Canon 2200 toner cartridge can yield up to 10,000 pages. To replace expired Canon 2200 toner cartridges, users can also buy online from third-party vendors.
The 2200 is among the top contenders of affordable all-in-one monochrome copiers that can support small or home offices. For units that are quicker and more advanced in their feature set, however, buyers can check out more expensive models like the imageRUNNER 2545 or 7105.
