Canon CLC950 Printer Review
The Canon CLC-950 is a color laser copier designed for a large office with high volume needs. Its copying speed and print quality are excellent, but its bulky frame may be a tight fit in smaller spaces.
Canon has always maintained a reputation for reliability in its products as well as a dedication to image quality. From its cameras to its printers, quality images have always been a mainstay for the Canon name. Nowhere is this more evident than the Canon CLC-950, which produces some of the sharpest, clearest copies of any copier on the market. This quality extends not only to black and white copies, but to color copies as well. Color copies are extremely accurate, with good tonal range and very few flaws.
Copy speed is somewhat mixed. Black and white copies print at about 28 pages per minute, but color copies are much slower, at 7 pages per minute. Still, the majority of copies will be black and white, so the CLC-950's slower color speeds will likely be a non-issue for most users. Canon CLC-950 toner cartridges come with a capacity of 4,500 pages. While this is not a large page yield when it comes to toner cartridges, an economical option which the user can choose is to purchase Canon CLC-950 toner cartridges at a third party reseller.
The Canon CLC-950 is a behemoth of a copy machine, measuring 29 x 30 x 39 inches (HWD), its footprint is extremely large. Most offices that need this sort of high-volume copy machine will likely have room for it, but space is certainly a consideration. The unit weighs over 530 pounds, as well, so transporting it around the office is a major affair.
The unit has automatic duplexing (two-sided copying) built-in, which allows for more options in copying, and also saves paper costs in the long run. Duplex copies will slow down copying speed considerably, though. The CLC-950 supports a wide variety of paper sizes, up to 11" x 17" paper, and a wide variety of paper stock as well, up to 90 lb index.
Overall, the Canon CLC-950 is a fast and reliable copier with the power and capacity to handle a large workload day in and day out. The Canon reputation is safe with this copier.
