The Canon L260 is a fax machine and monochrome laser printer designed for the home or small office user. It has good paper capacity and a 600 dpi printing engine, but its slow faxing speeds are disappointing.
While the Canon Fax L260 is a designed as a dedicated fax machine, it also has the ability to function as a monochrome laser printer and copier. Its weakest function is copying, as it has only an automatic document feeder for scanning, and no flatbed scanning surface. This means that users can only scan documents that will fit into the feeder, ruling out books and bound documents. Copying is best reserved for occasional use, and the Canon L260 will not replace a dedicated copy machine.
As a fax machine, the Canon Fax L260 has an impressive array of features. It can store up to 64 pages in its memory in the event that it runs out of paper. It has 125 numbers of speed dialing and other features such as delayed sending. Unfortunately, its faxing transmission speed is only 14.4 kbps, which will likely be very limiting for most users. Light users might not mind the slow speeds, but when competing models offer much faster speeds for a similar price, it makes little sense to compromise.
The Canon L260 is a very economical machine. The Canon L260 toner cartridges are very affordably-priced, and each Canon L260 toner cartridge has a capacity of 2,700 pages. Due to the high output laser toner cartridges, this results in a very low cost per page.
As a printer, the Canon L260 is better than might be expected. Its 600 dpi printing engine produces very sharp prints. Text is especially good, though graphics quality is lackluster. Unfortunately, print speed with this machine is quite slow, making it useful only for occasional printing, and it certainly will not replace the need for a dedicated laser printer or all-in-one machine.
Overall, the Canon L260 is a well-designed machine with a solid array of features. Its slow faxing and printing speeds lag behind the competition, however.
