The Canon PC300 is a monochrome laser copy machine designed for the home or small office user. Its small size makes it an excellent portable machine, but its slower speeds and limitations make it a poor choice when portability isn't a necessity. A model that uses Dell 310-7890 toner is probably a better choice if mobility isn't a requirement.
The Canon PC300 laser copier fills a small niche for copy machines. It targets users who need to take a small copy machine with them on the go. For this purpose, it is well-suited, as it is not only compact, but its input and output trays fold inward to become more compact, and a handle is included for carrying it easily from place to place. For printing instead of copying, look at a model like the Xerox 6130, which uses Xerox 106R01278 toner.
The unit has a surprising array of options, considering its small size and affordable price. It has a number of exposure adjustments and enlargement/reduction. The unit includes only a flatbed scanning surface, and does not have an automatic document feeder. For the same price, a small office that doesn't need portability could purchase a small copy machine with faster speeds and an automatic document feeder that would be more efficient, so only users who need portability will likely consider this model.
The laser toner cartridge uses a single cartridge system, which includes both the printing drum and the toner in one copier toner cartridge. Canon PC300 toner cartridges have a capacity of 4,000 pages, though the original cartridge has a capacity of only 1,000 pages, so users should expect to replace it sooner.
Speed is not one of the Canon PC300 laser copier's main attributes. It copies at only 4 pages per minute. This should be fast enough for light users, but heavier users will want to look elsewhere. This printer toner creates very high quality resolutions, much like Konica-Minolta 1710580-001 toner.
Overall, for the user who wishes to take the copy machine with them, this copier makes a good choice. Users who don't need portability will likely be happier with other models.
