Canon 2250 Printer Review
One of the major benefits of the Canon imageCLASS 2250 laser copier is its upgradeability. Buyers can choose the features they want now, or add them later as their needs expand. Its performance is a bit slow, at up to 16 copies per minute, and its standard paper capacity is a bit limited. Buyers will also find Canon 2250 printer toner to be a bit pricey.
The network support of the unit provides printing capabilities, on media up to 11x17 inches in size. Prints are limited to monochrome and a resolution of 600 dpi, but this should be acceptable for general office use. There is an option for Super G3 faxing as well, at a transmission speed of around 3 seconds per page.
The standard paper configuration includes a single 250-sheet cassette and a 100-sheet bypass stack for other types of media. The maximum capacity with upgrades is 1,100 sheets, however, so it certainly has room to grow. The automatic document feeder can hold up to 50 sheets at a maximum of letter size, for easy and fast scanning of multiple pages at a time. The control panel layout is fairly intuitive, and includes a number of one-touch buttons for quick access to fax destinations.
Replacing toners is a matter of opening the access panel near the top right of the machine, but the cost of Canon 2250 toner cartridges is quite high. With a yield of 7,000 pages, imageCLASS 2250 toner cartridges won't need to be replaced too frequently in small or medium offices, but the cost per page for imageCLASS 2250 toner is higher than much of its competition.
For an office with limited space, or one that expects to grow, the compact design and upgradeability of the 2250 will be appealing. Its slow copy speeds, simple control panel, and expensive Canon 2250 toner make it a little difficult to recommend, however.
