The Canon L280 is a fax machine and laser printer designed for the home or small office user. An excellent faxing feature set and decent laser printing combine in a compact and affordable package.
The Canon L280 targets users who still desire a dedicated fax machine for the office, and adds a few extras such as laser printing and PC faxing for extra convenience. The Canon Fax L280 can fax, print, and even copy, though its copying features are very limited. The unit's 300 dpi scanning engine and lack of a flatbed scanner mean that the Canon L280 certainly won't replace a high-quality copy machine, but for occasional copying, it may be enough for some users.
As a fax machine, the Canon Fax L280 is impressive. Its fast Super G3 transmission speeds can reach up to 33.6 kbps, but it can slow down to accommodate slower machines when transmitting or receiving. Its large memory can store up to 448 pages in the event that it runs out of paper, ensuring that no faxes are missed. It also gives users the ability to send a fax directly from a PC, making it easy to send an email or document as a fax for users who prefer it.
The Canon L280 is a very economical fax machine and printer due to the Canon L280 toner cartridges being very affordably-priced. Each Canon L280 toner cartridge has a capacity of 2,700 pages, so the printer cartridge can go a long way before needing replacement.
Printing is better than might be expected. The 600 dpi printing engine produces very sharp text, although graphics quality is a little lackluster. The main issue with printing is the unit's slow speed of 6 pages per minute. At this speed it will be enough of a laser printer for only the lightest of users.
Overall, the Canon L280 manages to be an excellent fax machine and a very usable laser printer, all at an affordable price. Toner costs are low, giving it a low cost of ownership.
