The Canon LC7500 laser fax is designed for the small or medium office environment. Its compact size and affordable price are appealing, but poor print quality and slow speeds fall behind the competition.
The Canon LC7500 laser fax is a very compact machine. It has a small footprint that should allow it to fit into most small office environments quite well, though it may be a little too large for some home users, or offices with very tight spaces. Its paper capacity is only 100 pages, which might be a problem for a busy office, as it will likely mean reloading paper often throughout the day. The included automatic document feeder makes it easy to quickly scan multiple pages, without having to feed them one at a time.
It has 4.5 MB of RAM included, which gives it a page memory of about 288 pages, allowing users to retrieve missed faxes in the event that the unit runs out of paper. No battery backup is included for power outages, but this is not a particularly common feature in budget fax machines.
Unfortunately, the unit's slow transmission speed of only 14,400 kbps is its main drawback. For the same price, buyers can find multiple models that offer faster transmission speeds.
Canon LC7500 toner cartridges are fairly affordable, but their smaller capacity makes the cost per page higher than competing units with larger-capacity cartridges. Each laser toner cartridge has a capacity of 4,000 pages. The printer toner is easy to access and replace.
Print speed is mainly dependent on transmission speed, thus it is slower than average. Print quality is also below average, as the unit features only a 400 dpi printing engine, which lacks the sharpness of a 600 dpi or higher engine, available in most competing units' printer toner.
Overall, the Canon LC7500 is a decent fax machine that is severely hampered by slow transmission speeds and lackluster print quality.
