The Canon PC230 is a personal laser copier that users can take with them on the go. Its compact, lightweight design is built to travel, and it generates copies at a respectable 4 pages per minute. It lacks any sort of printing capabilities, which might have been a nice extra, and Canon PC230 printer toner can be a little pricey if users don't look for third-party alternatives.
The most impressive aspect of the PC230 is undoubtedly its compact design, as it measures only 4.5x14.1x17.3 inches when its trays are folded up. It could potentially fit in a large shoulder bag for carrying, and it weighs just 18.7 pounds with the Canon PC230 toner installed. The input tray can actually hold 50 sheets, which is impressive.
The max speed of 4 pages per minute and first page out time of 22 seconds won't win any speed records, but it's still impressive enough for a portable device and the unit requires no warm-up time. The automatic exposure feature can choose the best setting for great copy quality, or there is a manual slider so that users can adjust the exposure themselves. The design also includes a pop-up handle for easier transport.
Replacement toners include a drum unit, so the Canon PC230 toner cartridges are the only regular consumable that needs to be replaced. Prices for OEM supplies are a bit high, but compatible Canon PC230 toner cartridges are much more affordable, and each has a yield of around 4,000 pages, keep the cost per page low.
Not only is the Canon PC230 very portable and convenient, but its auto exposure settings and easy setup makes it easy to use as well. With no warm-up time necessary, it is ready to use quickly, and supplies are affordable if buyers take the time to compare their options.
