Canon PC1060 Printer Review
The Canon PC1060 laser copier (also known as the PC1060F) is designed for the home or small office user. It makes fast, high-quality copies, has a large paper capacity, and does it all in an affordable, compact package.
The Canon PC1060 laser copier is a rarity in today's market, as a dedicated personal laser copier. With so many multifunction devices on the market, there are still many users who need a single machine for a single task.
Perhaps the unit's most standout feature is its lack of warmup time. It is ready to copy the moment you turn it on, which means its power-saving auto-shutoff mode will not interrupt workflow. This also makes it more economical. Copy features include zooming from 50% to 200% and memory collating of originals and copies. It also includes both manual and automatic exposure settings for quickly and easily getting the best copies possible.
Paper capacity is very generous, especially for a compact machine. The main drawer has a capacity of 500 sheets, while the multipurpose tray has a capacity of 100 sheets. Having a multipurpose tray also saves the user from having to empty the main drawer whenever they need to use an alternate paper type or size.
There is a toner save mode, which increases the number of printed pages for each copier toner cartridge. Canon PC1060 toner cartridges have a capacity of 5,000 pages. The laser toner cartridge uses a single cartridge system that combines all consumables into one inexpensive unit, saving time and money.
Copy quality is excellent, and the automatic and manual exposure settings (including a photo mode) help to ensure the best scans possible. Copy speed is fast, at 13 copies per minute.
Overall, users who need a dedicated copy machine that won't break the budget or take up too much space will find a lot to like in the Canon PC1060.
