Canon LBP5360 Printer Review
The Canon imageRUNNER LBP5360 is a laser device that offers small offices a cost-efficient solution to monochrome and color printing needs. The LBP5360's design targets it primarily toward low or medium volumes due to features like its satisfactory output speeds of up to 22 pages per minute. This device bundles most of the standard features seen in office units such as ample paper handling, long-lasting imageRUNNER LBP5360 printer toner and flexible connectivity, making it a good fit for those that would prefer the affordability of a single-function device over a multifunction model.
Despite the fact that the LBP5360 can only print documents, it has a pretty hefty weight of nearly 50 pounds and a bulky size of 17x16x17 inches. Users should still be able to operate the unit from a large desktop, but thanks to connectivity like its ethernet interface multiple people in an office can print remotely from their computers. The unit also has a standard USB port that can connect to a user's computer running Mac or Windows operating systems.
The LB5360's front control panel provides 8 operation buttons and 8 LED lights for access to simple control tools. The LEDs will flash to notify users when paper needs to be restocked, if there is a print error or if Canon LBP5360 toner is running low, while the buttons will enable them to immediately cancel a job and turn the machine on and off. The panel also comes with a 1-line monochrome LCD that will display brief messages on the progress of a job.
The LBP5360 can handle a range of media types and sizes, from a minimum of 3x5 inches to a maximum of 8x5x14 inches. The device provides a few input options, including a 100-sheet multipurpose tray and a standard 250-sheet cassette tray. Users have the option to add on an additional 500-sheet cassette tray to expand its maximum paper capacity to 850 pages.
The unit's black, cyan, magenta and yellow Canon LBP5360 toner cartridges help contribute to its satisfactory output, printing color and monochrome documents with a resolution of 2400 dpix600 dpi. Since each color and black imageRUNNER LBP5360 toner can be replaced separately, users will save money on replacement toners. With yields of up to 6,000 pages for each color and black Canon LBP5360 toner cartridge, this printer should be able to handle medium volumes for low running costs.
Whether users have a simple text job on 8.5x14-inch paper, graphics for a presentation, or a full-color photo to print, the LBP5360 has the versatility and the color laser design to handle such needs. Although all-in-one units have become popular office machines, there is still a market for single-function printers for users that value simplicity and efficiency.
