The Canon imageCLASS C3500 is a compact multifunction color laser printer, but it can also expand to take on larger workloads. It has a maximum print speed of 21 pages per minute, which could be a little slow for a busy office, but its networking features are great for a shared environment. It also benefits from affordable Canon C3500 printer toner prices, though replacing all four supplies can mean a serious hit to the budget.
The C3500 is almost compact enough for personal use in the right situations, and it does include a USB port for a direct connection in addition to the ethernet port. The machine measures 26.9x25.3x22.2 inches, but its weight of 123 pounds might be a tough sell for individuals, even though this does include the weight of the imageCLASS C3500 toner supplies. An automatic document feeder is included for quick scanning of multiple pages at a time, and it can hold up to 25 sheets.
Paper handling is the area of greatest expansion. The unit starts with a main tray that holds 500 sheets and a multipurpose tray that holds 100 sheets. It can be further expanded with an extra 500-sheet tray, nearly doubling the paper capacity to 1,100 sheets. The Send-to-Email feature can help reduce the usage of toners, and may replace the need for faxing in many offices.
The system uses four separate Canon C3500 toner cartridges in cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Each of the color supplies can yield around 12,000 pages, while the black imageCLASS C3500 toner cartridge can yield around 13,000 pages. Remanufactured Canon C3500 toner is also available from many third-party vendors, at lower prices than OEM supplies.
The C3500 can handle a broad range of tasks, but it still manages to be fairly compact. This makes it an excellent choice for a small office, and its expandability makes it a flexible choice for future growth.
