Canon 6000 Printer Review
The Canon imageRUNNER 6000 is a heavy-duty multifunction device that can handle the print, scan and copy needs of medium or large offices. One of the main reasons the 6000 can support busy daily needs is its maximum print speed of up to 60 pages per minute, which is among the quickest outputs in its class of laser units. A number of other features make this device an attractive choice for busy offices, from its expandable media input and high-capacity imageRUNNER 6000 printer toner to its easy-to-use features.
With a large size of 44x25x29 inches, the 6000 will require its own dedicated space in an office. Contributing to the device's bulky size is its multiple paper input options, including two 550-sheet trays and an additional two 1,500-sheet trays. Users can add more trays to increase the media capacity to a total of 7,650 pages, which will allow offices to maximize their productivity. Users have the ability to print double-sided on paper and automatically feed up to 100 pages for large scan jobs with the automatic document feeder.
The 6000 benefits from a versatile front panel, which includes a color touchscreen and four-way pad that work in tandem to allow users to scroll through menu options, select scan destinations and monitor document progress. In addition to the built-in USB and parallel ports, the unit also includes an ethernet connection that will allow users to scan and print documents through the office network.
With its large 5 GB hard drive, users will have the opportunity to scan a document once and print it many times for easy distribution. Documents can scan with a maximum resolution of 600x600 dpi, while they print with a maximum interpolated resolution of 2400x1200 dpi using black Canon 6000 toner. Users can also create up to 999 monochrome copies from an original document with a resolution of 600x600 dpi using imageRUNNER 6000 toner.
The unit uses one black Canon 6000 toner cartridge, which reduces running costs compared to color devices that use multiple toners. Since each replacement Canon 6000 toner cartridge can last up to 33,000 pages, this machine can easily handle high-volume needs.
The 6000's noteworthy features include its impressive print speeds and ample built-in media capacity that can be further expanded if needed. The printer also benefits from plenty of versatile control panel features that will allow users to track their important documents and access popular functions. Those looking for a multifunction device that is user-friendly and flexible enough to expand their workflow will find the 6000 to be an excellent fit.
