Canon 1740iF Printer Review
The Canon imageRUNNER 1740iF is a multifunction laser printer and copier that expands on the features of the 1740 base model with the addition of faxing and a searchable PDF feature that is great for archiving paper documents. Its print speeds of up to 42 pages per minute should be a good fit for the small or medium office environment, and replacement Canon 1740iF printer toner won't take a big hit on the office budget.
The 1740iF has a relatively compact design that won't take up a lot of space in the office, and its standard input paper capacity is still pretty solid. It includes two 550-sheet main drawers and a 100-sheet bypass, so that users can load media like envelopes or labels without the need to clear out standard paper. A maximum paper capacity of 2,300 sheets provides some room to grow as well. The control panel tucks out of the way when not in use, but can tilt up toward the user for better visibility. Print and copy resolutions can reach up to 1200 dpi using black Canon 1740iF toner.
In addition to its main printing, copying, and faxing features, the 1740iF also includes color scanning, and can save documents as searchable PDF files with built-in optical character recognition. Combined with the fast, 100-sheet duplexing automatic document feeder, this makes a great solution for converting paper documents to digital formats.
Replacing toners is a snap, and the imageRUNNER 1740iF toner cartridges can provide up to 15,000 pages each. The low cost of Canon 1740iF toner cartridges works out to a cost per page of about half a cent, savings users money with every page.
Buyers should find the affordable price of the 1740iF to be a good compromise for its slower speeds. It produces high-quality prints and the cost of replacement imageRUNNER 1740iF toner won't be too high, making it an excellent value for the small or medium office.
