Canon 2535 Printer Review
The Canon imageRUNNER 2535 and 2535i are a series of monochrome laser printers that are designed to fit the needs of small to medium-size offices looking to expand their workflows. One element that will aid users in accomplishing this is the 2535's quick output speeds, printing at a rate of 35 pages per minute. Despite its affordable price, this machine is able to function as more than a printer, offering additional copying and scanning functionality to eliminate the need for multiple devices. This fast all-in-one unit's range of features helps make it one of the top picks of comparable models, providing offices with long-lasting imageRUNNER 2535 printer toner and an upgradable design.
The 2535 can handle large-volume printing thanks to features such as its 100-sheet duplexing automatic document feeder, the ability to copy a job up to 999 times and the built-in RAM of 512 MB. The unit's generous paper input of 1,200 pages can also support frequent daily needs, but those looking to increase their volumes have the option to purchase additional trays and expand the capacity to a maximum of 2,300 pages. Automatic tray switching technology will enable users to easily alternate between different types of media.
The 2535's connectivity lacks wireless print options, but it does include a standard USB port and an ethernet interface that will enable users to connect their computer to the shared office network. Standalone copying is provided through its control panel, which includes a touchscreen LCD for access to menus and dedicated keys to select the number of duplicates needed for a job or to select reduction or enlargement percentages. The touchscreen interface will also allow users to access job queues, where jobs can be selected, edited and then previewed prior to printing. Users will receive messages via the LCD when there is a print error, or when Canon 2535 toner or paper needs to be replaced.
When handling jobs such as business text applications and presentation graphics, this device can print with sharp detail and a professional-looking resolution of 1200x1200 dpi using black imageRUNNER 2535 toner. The machine can duplicate original jobs with a fine resolution of 600x600 dpi, while it can achieve a scan resolution of up to 1200 dpi.
The machine comes with a starter black Canon 2535 toner cartridge that is easy to snap into the machine and affordable to replace compared to printers that operate with multiple toners. With each replacement Canon 2535 toner cartridge yielding a total of 19,400 pages, this device will be able to handle the high-volume jobs of multiple users.
Combining its output speeds, high-capacity paper input and robust package of multifunction features, the 2535 is equipped to handle heavy-duty printing for offices. What makes this device stand out from others in its class is its inexpensive price, making it one of the more affordable units to include benefits like a touchscreen interface and networking.
