Canon D660 Printer Review
The Canon D660 laser printer is designed for the home or small office user, like the Canon ICD340 toner printer. It is both an impressive printer and a robust laser copier in one machine. Its low upfront cost and reasonable toner costs give it a very low cost of ownership.
The Canon imageCLASS D660 laser copier manages to fit a lot of functionality into a fairly compact design. It measures 15.1 inches by 17.4 inches by 24.5 inches and weighs around 53 pounds. It connects to a computer via parallel port or USB 2.0. It also works quite well as a standalone laser copy machine, and does not require a connection to a computer for its copying function. Most of the expected copying options are included, such as zooming from 50% to 200%, collating, and even 2 on 1 copying.
Paper capacity is very impressive for the unit's size and price. It can hold 500 sheets in its main drawer, and an additional 100 sheets in its multipurpose tray. Potential buyers should note, however, that its paper capacity can not be expanded in the future, so it may not meet the needs of a growing office.
Canon imageCLASS D660 toner cartridges have a capacity of 5,000 pages. The Canon D660 toner cartridges are affordably-priced, and toner usage per page is low, making it a very economical choice. The laser toner cartridge is easily replaced. A toner save mode can be enabled to get more out of each printer toner cartridge.
Print speed is quite fast, at up to 13 pages per minute. Copies print at the same speed, minus scanning time. Text quality is very sharp, though very small font sizes lose a little bit of detail. Graphics quality is usable, but below average for a laser.
Overall, the Canon imageCLASS D660 will appeal to users who need a solid standalone copier, but would also like a high-quality laser printer. Fast speeds and excellent text quality make it a great choice.
