Canon 5020 Printer Review
The Canon imageRUNNER 5020 and its series model, the 5020i, received high praise from both experts and users alike for their ability to handle the heavy-duty print, scan and copy jobs of medium to large offices. The 5020's maximum print speeds are rated at 50 pages per minute, which makes it one of the quickest models in its class of laser devices. A range of other features equip this unit to handle demanding needs, such as its generous paper handling, long-lasting imageRUNNER 5020 printer toner and versatile multifunction capabilities.
Multiple users in an office will easily be able to share this hulking 45x35x29-inch machine thanks to its wired ethernet interface, which provides a connection to a shared office network. The 5020's Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform architecture is another great tool for business use because it will enable offices to track costs for paper supplies and Canon 5020 toner, as well as enable different users to customize the unit based on their needs.
Users can utilize the 5020 as a standalone copier, preview scans and print jobs and access a variety of control tools right from its front panel using the color LCD screen. When combining this LCD with its 100-sheet document feeder, users can select a scan destination or how many copies are needed, place the job in the tray and go tend to other business while it automatically feeds each page.
One of the reasons the 5020 can handle a monthly duty cycle of up to 200,000 pages is its flexible media handling that provides support for a standard paper capacity of 4,100 pages. To aid offices trying to expand their productivity, this device has optional paper trays that can be added to increase its maximum input capacity to 7,650 pages.
The unit's design and use of only black imageRUNNER 5020 toner mean it can't handle color documents, but its impressive monochrome print output of 2400x600 dpi is above par for its class. The device operates with two supplies: one black Canon 5020 toner cartridge and an image drum capable of lasting up to 3,000,000 pages. Each black Canon 5020 toner cartridge has a capacity of 33,000 pages, which further enables the printer to support large volumes.
Rather than stocking the office with multiple devices, users have the option to select models like the 5020 that bundle 3 functions into a single machine. What helps it stand out from other all-in-one offices devices is its robust set of features, ranging from high-yielding toners and a large upgradable paper supply to its quick output speeds.
