Canon D661 Printer Review
The Canon D661 laser printer is designed for the home or small office user. Its copying features are robust, and its fast, quality prints will impress. Some users might prefer a true all-in-one machine, however, as it lacks faxing and scanning.
The design of the Canon imageCLASS D661 laser printer is quite compact for a unit with so much functionality. It measures 15.1 inches by 17.4 inches by 24.5 inches (HWD) and weighs 52.9 pounds. The design incorporates the printing unit on the bottom, with the scanning unit for copying located on top. It has a 30-sheet automatic document feeder for quickly copying multiple pages easily, and also has a flatbed scanning surface for items that can't be fed through the ADF. Paper capacity is a generous 600 sheets total. The main drawer holds 500 sheets, and a multipurpose tray has a capacity of 100 sheets.
Canon imageCLASS D661 toner cartridges have a capacity of 5,000 pages. Users can get more from each laser toner cartridge by enabling the toner save mode, which reduces the amount of toner used per page. Canon D661 toner cartridges use a single cartridge system, conveniently combining the drum and toner into a single printer toner cartridge.
Copy features include collating of originals and copies, 2 on 1 copies, and zooming from 50 to 200%. It has manual and automatic exposure settings, including settings for photos, which help users get the best copy quality easily.
Print quality is generally very good. Graphics and photo quality is average. Text quality is very sharp and detailed, though it loses a bit of clarity at very small font sizes. For the average user, who won't need to print lots of small fonts or graphics, it should do just fine.
Overall, the Canon D661 is an excellent copier and printer for the small office environment. Fast speeds and a robust feature set will impress users.
