Canon LBP910 Printer Review
The Canon LBP-910 monochrome laser printer is designed for the home user or the small office, with a vertical design that takes up a very small footprint. Print speeds are somewhat slow, so high-volume use will be out of the question, but the low price of Canon LBP-910 printer toner keeps things affordable and personal users should find it very appealing.
The maximum output speed is 8 pages per minute for standard prints, which is adequate for light use, but not much more. The unit can print with a resolution of 600 dpi that is also pretty solid for basic office use, but won't produce the kind of quality one would hand to a client. Still, the manufacturer claims that smoothing technology can approximate the look of 2400x600 dpi output.
The vertical orientation of the unit is what helps it keep such a small footprint. This is a real benefit in tight spaces, and the machine weighs only 14.6 pounds, even with the Canon LBP-910 toner installed. The paper capacity is a bit underwhelming, at only 125 sheets, and it is not expandable with upgrades. It does support alternative media types, however, such as envelopes, transparencies, and postcards.
When replacement toners are needed, the large yield and low price of Canon LBP-910 toner cartridges help to keep the cost per page down. Each Canon LBP-910 toner cartridge has an estimated yield of around 10,000 pages, so light-duty users can go a long time between replacements, and even though OEM supplies can be pricey, compatible supplies are available from many third-party vendors.
With virtually no warm-up time and decent print speeds, the LBP-910 is nearly ideal for low-volume personal use. It has its limitations in both speed and output quality, but it is a good value for its price.
