Canon 3245 Printer Review
The Canon imageRUNNER 3245 and its additional series model the 3245i are all-in-one laser printers that have the robust design to support busy small or medium offices. Printing at maximum speeds of 45 pages per minute for monochrome projects, the 3245 is one of the quickest models in its class. Benefitting further from features such as an expandable paper capacity and long-lasting imageRUNNER 3245 printer toner, this printer, copier, scanner and fax machine can handle those looking to expand their workflow.
This intuitive device includes the manufacturer's Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform technology that will allow users to customize productivity and multitask. The front panel also provides a decent amount of on-board control, including a touchscreen LCD that will allow users to quickly swipe through menu functions, and alert systems that will notify users when imageRUNNER 3245 toner and paper are running low.
The 3245 uses Color Universal Send technology that will allow users to send scanned projects to a number of locations such as email, fax addresses and folders on the office network. In addition to its ethernet interface that makes it possible for users to print and share over the office network, the device also comes with a standard USB port for connectivity.
The 3245 is ideal for large-volume use since users have the option to increase its standard paper supply of 1,150 pages to a maximum of 4,950 pages. Additional features like automatic duplexing and a 100-sheet automatic document feeder make the 3245 a versatile machine.
As a monochrome device this model is unable to support color projects. However, the ability to print with a crisp and detailed resolution of up to 1200x600 dpi using Canon 3245 toner will allow it to provide professional-quality results.
The unit uses one black Canon 3245 toner cartridge that is easy to install. Each Canon 3245 toner cartridge has a maximum capacity of 24,000 pages, which is a good fit for heavy-duty printing. Replacement toners can be found for affordable prices from a number of online vendors and contribute to low running costs.
The 3245 series provides quick, intuitive, flexible and professional multifunction features for small offices. By purchasing additional paper trays, this device can easily be upgraded further to support users larger offices and heavier volumes.
