For simple faxing jobs at home, the Canon B150 inkjet fax machine may be all some buyers need. Its transmission speed of 14.4 Kbps and its slow first page out time aren't particularly impressive, but it has a solid set of features like speed dialing. Although it isn't as cost-effective as a laser device, the Canon B150 printer ink supplies are affordable.
The design of the B150 is simple and relatively compact, though it seems a bit bulkier than it needs to be. The machine measures in at 6x17.3x13 inches, and it weighs 15.4 pounds. This includes the FaxPhone B150 printer ink supply, but not the paper.
The front panel includes a full keypad and one-touch buttons for speed dialing (up to 16), and up to 100 numbers can be programmed for coded speed dialing as well. The transmission time for faxing is around 18 seconds per page, which isn't very conducive to high-volume faxing, but should be quick enough for light-duty use.
Users should note that the feeder only handles paper that is 8.5 inches wide or less, so large or irregular media cannot be scanned. The unit also acts as an answering machine, and can store messages for later retrieval, making it the only phone system a small office may need.
Opting for ink instead of toner, the cost of Canon B150 ink cartridges is still pretty affordable. Each replacement FaxPhone B150 ink cartridge can last for around 450 pages, and even more on lower quality settings. Using remanufactured Canon B150 ink is an even better idea, as it is usually available for much less than OEM branded supplies.
It isn't the most advanced fax machine a small office can find, but the Canon B150 find a niche as an affordable inkjet device with a solid set of features. Its transmission speeds are the only thing holding it back a bit from competing models.
