The Canon LBP-840 is a fairly compact single-function laser printer designed for home or small office use. It has adequate print speeds, though its paper capacity is somewhat small. One of its best benefits is the fact that it doesn't require much desk space for operation, making it a good fit for home users in tight spaces. Large capacities and low prices on Canon LBP-840 printer toner supplies also make it very cost-effective to operate.
Output speed can make or break a laser printer, depending on the size of an office and the volume of printing it must support. The LBP-840 can print up to 16 pages per minute, which is a pretty good fit for home users or even a personal user in a small office. Anything beyond this use might be a bit too much for it to handle, however.
The main paper tray holds only 250 sheets, but again, this should be a good fit for low-volume use. With no option for upgrades to the paper capacity, however, buyers should be sure it will support their needs before purchase. The unit has a 1200x1200 dpi output resolution that should result in sharp quality prints. Since it connects via parallel port only, modern computers with USB ports may require an adapter.
Home users with low printing volumes will find they don't need to replace toners very frequently. Each Canon LBP-840 toner cartridge can yield around 10,000 pages. This makes the cost per page of Canon LBP-840 toner cartridges among the lowest in its class. Buyers can even find compatible Canon LBP-840 toner supplies for less than OEM prices.
Even though it is showing its age with limited connectivity and somewhat slow speeds, the Canon LBP-840 could still be an excellent choice for the home or small office. Its compact design and affordable price make it worth consideration, but buyers may need an adapter for connection to a modern computer.
