While its name might mislead potential buyers into thinking it is a dedicated laser fax machine, the Canon FAXPHONE L190 can also handle printing and copying. It has a compact design that is ideal for smaller spaces, with a focus on advanced fax features, but still provides print and copy speeds of up to 26 pages per minute. Canon L190 printer toner is also reasonably affordable, if buyers explore third-party replacements.
While there are many multifunction printers on the market with a similar feature set, the L190 differentiates itself by putting more focus on its faxing capabilities. It includes a telephone handset and Super G3 transmission speeds that can send and receive pages in as little as 3 seconds. The unit includes enough memory for storing up to 512 pages, which can ensure faxes don't get lost when the machine is low on paper or there is an error.
A 50-sheet automatic document feeder is included for quickly scanning multi-page documents continuously, but a flatbed scanning platen is also included for those irregular materials that can't be sheet-fed. A "Quiet Mode" setting is also available, which reduces print speed, but can be useful in environments where the machine is located in close proximity to individuals and noise is a factor.
Replacement toners are readily available from multiple vendors, even though the OEM Canon L190 toner cartridges can be a bit expensive. Using compatible FAXPHONE L190 toner is the best option for keeping costs down, as it is available for a lower purchase price that reduces the overall cost per page. FAXPHONE L190 toner cartridges can provide up to 2,100 pages, so a small office won't need to replace them too frequently.
The L190 offers a similar feature set to the average multifunction machine, but it does lack scanning functionality. It will appeal mainly to those who do a lot of faxing, but still want print and copy features. Its upfront price is affordable, and using compatible Canon L190 toner can keep running costs manageable as well.
