As opposed to a multifunction laser printer that can also fax, the Canon LC310 puts faxing as a priority, with printing and copying as secondary functions. That is not to say it isn't a very capable printer, however, with speeds of up to 19 pages per minute. Extras like a telephone handset will appeal to heavy fax users, but the limitations of its paper feeder could cause problems for some uses.
The LC310 is designed to be a compact solution for a small office or even a personal user, and its small footprint will occupy very little space on a table or desk. The unit measures 15.5x17.2x18.2 inches, with a weight of only 26.7 which includes the handset and Canon LC310 printer toner.
Even with its small design, it still includes a very detailed control panel with a full number pad and up to 200 speed dial locations for quick faxing. It connects via USB to a single computer, and users can add an optional print server if they wish to use it as a shared network printer. Adding this option will tend to be a bit cost-prohibitive compared to other models with networking already included, however. The input paper capacity includes a 250-sheet main tray and a 10-sheet manual feeder, and the automatic document feeder can hold up to 50 originals for copying and faxing.
Using toners instead of the more expensive inkjet supplies of many compact models can save a lot in operating costs. Canon LC310 toner cartridges can provide up to 3,500 pages each, and are affordably priced. Using remanufactured Canon LC310 toner cartridges will help users save even more.
The LC310 will appeal most to users who need a strong, full-featured fax machine, but its print and copy functions shouldn't be overlooked. It is fast, affordable, and compact, and the low cost of Canon LC310 toner supplies make it a great long-term investment for a small office.
