The Canon PC150 is a monochrome laser copier designed for the home or small office user. Its extremely compact and portable design makes it an asset for the user on the move. Its features are limited in comparison to larger copy machines, like the Oki C9650 that uses Okidata 42918984 toner, but its portability makes up for it.
The design of the Canon PC150 laser copier might lead one to believe they are looking at a scanner, rather than a copy machine, as its flat, ultra-compact design is unlike any larger copy machine on the market. The copier is designed to be a very portable machine, catering to the small office user on the move. Its input and output paper trays are slim plastic which can be folded up into the unit for more portability.
In designing the Canon PC150 laser copier for its portability, some features and functions were sacrificed. Its input paper capacity is only 50 sheets, though for its size, this is impressive. In its standard mode, it can only make 9 copies at a time, but in full-feed mode, it can make up to 50. It does have the exposure settings of some of Canon's larger copy machines, however, helping users make better copies by scanning originals more accurately. It also cannot copy in color, due to its mobility. For a machine that does offer color capabilities, take a look at the Dell 1320c that uses Dell 310-9062 toner.
Another sacrifice is copy speed. The unit can make copies at up to 4 pages per minute, which is slow by most standards. However, given the compact and portable nature of the PC150, 4 pages per minute is still quite impressive.
Canon PC150 toner cartridges have a capacity of 4,000 pages each. The PC150 toner cartridge is part of the single cartridge system, which bundles the toner and drum unit into a single copier toner cartridge, saving users from having to replace more than one part separately. Using the PC150's toner save mode will help users get more from each laser toner cartridge. For a few more pages per cartridge, try a model that uses Samsung CLP-K660B toner.
Overall, the extreme portability and performance of the PC150 is impressive. Its low price makes it a feasible choice for any size office. Slow copy speeds are only a slight downside.
