Canon LBP1610 Printer Review
With sharp output quality and relatively quick speeds of 16.3 pages per minute, the Canon LBP-1610 compact laser printer would be an excellent choice for individuals as well as for a small office environment. It has a small amount of expandability for future growth, and uses affordable Canon LBP-1610 printer ink supplies that keep it inexpensive to operate.
With a print resolution of 1200x1200 dpi, the LBP-1610 can output at a high level of quality, and its interpolated resolution is up to 2400x600 dpi thanks to its Super Smoothing Technology. Of course, the higher quality settings use more Canon LBP-1610 toner, so some users might prefer lower quality settings for non-essential printing to save money.
The input paper capacity starts at only 250 sheets, with a bypass tray that holds 100 sheets. This should be functional for an individual or a very small office, but upgrades are available for a maximum of 1,100 sheets of input paper capacity. This will help it support larger workloads when needed, and can keep it relevant for several years in a growing office. In addition to the parallel and USB ports available, users can also add an upgrade to connect it via ethernet to an office network.
Replacement toners are widely available, and the large yield of Canon LBP-1610 toner cartridges ensures they won't need to be replaced on a frequent schedule. In fact, each Canon LBP-1610 toner cartridge can supply around 10,000 pages, which also makes the cost per page very low.
Whether used as a compact and affordable personal device or as a shared printer in a small networked office, the Canon LBP-1610 can be a very good fit. Its solid output speeds and sharp output make it a solid value for its price.
