Canon D760 Printer Review
The Canon D760 laser printer is designed for the home or small office user. Its large paper capacity and strong feature set combine to make an excellent machine that can handle virtually any printing and copying needs.
The Canon imageCLASS D760 is billed as a personal digital copier, but it has the capacity to support multiple users, and operates quite well as a standalone copy machine, without the need for a computer. A 30-sheet automatic document feeder makes copying multiple pages a breeze, and a flatbed scanning surface can handle any media that won't fit in the feeder. Copies can be zoomed from 50% to 200%, and the unit also supports collating, 2 on 1 copies, and a copy memory of 9.5 MB.
Paper capacity is very large for the price, with a 500-sheet main drawer and a 100-sheet multipurpose tray. The unit can connect to a computer for printing via USB or parallel port. Built-in networking is not included, but an optional network adapter can be purchased, though a less expensive option would be to use an external print server, or to use a computer as a host for sharing.
The unit has a toner save mode, which reduces the amount of toner used per page, and helps users to get more from each laser toner cartridge. Canon imageCLASS D760 toner cartridges have a capacity of 5,000 pages. Canon D760 toner cartridges also use a single cartridge system which has both toner an drum combined in one printer toner cartridge for added convenience.
Print and copy speed is fast for the price, at around 16 pages per minute. Text quality is impressive, with sharp and detailed characters that are readable at small font sizes. Graphics and photo quality is average.
Overall, the Canon imageCLASS D760 laser printer is an impressive machine with a great feature set. Users who need built-in networking may want to look elsewhere.
