The Canon imageCLASS LBP2510 color laser printer is designed for the small or mid-sized office with fairly steady printing volumes. It can print at speeds of up to 17 pages per minute, but its first page out time of 17.5 seconds is a bit slow. Its output resolution can be up to 9600x600 dpi with smoothing technologies, and Canon LBP2510 printer toner supplies are fairly cost-effective.
The unit handles both single-sided and double-sided printing with its automatic duplexing feature, though duplexing slows the print speed to around half. The input paper capacity includes a main tray with a 500-sheet maximum and a 100-sheet bypass tray that is perfect for loading alternative media types like transparencies and envelopes.
Connection options are somewhat limited, with parallel and USB connections as standard features. Users can add an ethernet port for networking, however, which is highly recommended for most shared office environments. The unit weighs around 77 pounds, which includes the four imageCLASS LBP2510 toner supplies, and it has a reasonably compact footprint of 18.9x20.8 inches. This makes it reasonable to fit on a desktop surface, but it is probably a bit too bulky to share a desk with a computer.
The system uses four color toners for output, so it will be more expensive to replace the Canon LBP2510 toner cartridges compared to a monochrome machine. Still, the imageCLASS LBP2510 toner cartridges have decent yields of 8,000 to 9,000 pages, so they are fairly cost-effective in operation. Users can find remanufactured Canon LBP2510 toner from some third-party vendors if they wish to save even more.
Overall, the Canon LBP2510 should make a good solution for a busy small office, with excellent output quality and decent output speeds. Some buyers might find its lack of upgradability to be a major downside, and it won't easily keep up with very high-volume workloads.
