With multifunction models dominating the office market, a fairly simple monochrome laser printer may not make a big splash, but the Canon imageRUNNER LBP3470 is still not a device to be overlooked. It can output up to 35 pages per minute, and features sharp 600x600 dpi resolution. Its main downside is the expensive cost of Canon LBP3470 printer toner supplies.
The LBP3470 is designed to work in fairly tight spaces, with dimensions of 14.8x10.5x15.8 inches. It also weighs just 25.6 pounds, even with the single imageRUNNER LBP3470 toner supply installed. The required warm-up time is only 10 seconds or less, and the first page out time is around 6 seconds. The standard memory of 128 MB can be expanded up to 320 MB for those who need to print complex documents frequently.
With a standard paper tray of 250 sheets and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray for alternative media, the unit starts out fairly limited. Adding an extra 500-sheet tray can boost its capacity to 800 sheets total, however, which should be enough for a busy small office even a mid-sized office. It can support media up to 8.5x14 inches in size, and a variety of media types such as envelopes, index cards, and more.
The expensive cost of replacement toners is really what holds the unit back, as Canon LBP3470 toner cartridges are some of least affordable in its class. The fact that each imageRUNNER LBP3470 toner cartridge can provide around 6,400 pages only helps a bit, but the cost per page is still very high. Worst of all, compatible Canon LBP3470 toner is difficult to find.
The design, output speed, and paper handling of the LBP3470 are all top notch, which should make it pretty appealing for a small or medium office environment. However, expensive operating costs make it a poor value compared to similar models in its class.
