The Canon PC325 laser copier is designed for the home or small office user. It is compact and very portable, allowing users to take it with them when necessary. Its slow scanning speeds might disappoint some users, but for light copying tasks, its affordable price makes it a good choice.
The Canon PC325 laser copier is comprised of a scanning/copying unit, and two fold-out trays for paper input and output. The trays fold up for more portability, and there is even a handle for transporting the unit more easily. This allows the machine to go where the user needs it to go, making it ideal for home or small office users who want a solid copy machine at home or in the office, but also have a need for portability. For printing, the Dell 1815 which features Dell 310-7945 toner is probably a better buy.
The unit has a flatbed scanner for scanning originals, which can handle books and other large media as well as regular paper documents. The unit lacks an automatic document feeder, which would speed up copying time, but would add significantly to the size and portability of the unit. Still, users who do a lot of heavy copying will probably opt for a machine with an ADF at the expense of portability.
Canon PC325 toner cartridges have a capacity of 4,000 pages. The laser toner cartridge included with the unit has a much smaller capacity, however, and users will need to replace their first copier toner cartridge much sooner. Toner costs are relatively low, like Samsung CLT-K409S toner, but users who are used to inkjet prices may find them high.
Copy speed is slow, but this is a product of the unit's compact size and portability. It should be fast enough for light-duty use, but users who do heavier copying will want to look elsewhere. For those with color needs, models that use Konica-Minolta 1710587-006 toner are a much better choice.
Overall, the Canon PC325 is an excellent copier with the portability to go nearly anywhere. It allows users to make copies away from the office, and copy quality is excellent.
