SYDNEY: Canon has unveiled a new range of Laser Shot printers in mono and colour options available to Canon dealers nationally. Canon says these printers help minimise paper and overall power consumption, saving both environmental resources and money for businesses.
The new mono Laser Shot printers include the LBP-3370, LBP-3310 and the LBP-3250. The LBP-5050N is the new colour version.
“Each model is uniquely suited for different office sizes, but the one constant is the ability to create quality output quickly at a reasonable price,” said Canon Australia brand manager, Consumer Imaging Product Group, Alyson Barden.
According to Canon’s specs, all three mono models print double sided and feature the All-in-One cartridge system, which combines the drum, toner and waste toner box all in one cartridge. They also have ‘instant’ warm up, going from Stand By to power in instantly.
The Laser Shot LBP-3370 (RRP $649) has network capability and large print trays that hold 300 sheets. It outputs at up to 9600 x 600 dpi, prints at 26 pages per minute (ppm) and can deliver the first print in 6.5 seconds.
The Laser Shot LBP-3310 (RRP $399) also prints at up to 9600 x 600 dpi and can print double-sided prints at 13.3 ppm.
Meanwhile, the Laser Shot LBP-3250 (RRP $199) prints at a resolution of 1200 x 600 dpi.
For colour reproductions, the new Laser Shot LBP-5050N (RRP $449) has network capability and accepts an assortment of paper types, including heavy paper and envelopes.
It also uses four watts of power in stand-by mode, however, speed is the key with this model.
“Small offices that require professional-quality prints will love the benefits that the speed and diversity of the new LBP-5050N brings,” said Barden.
It prints at eight ppm in colour and 12 ppm in mono using Canon Advanced Printing Technology (CAPT), which, according to Canon, acts as a catalyst to help PCs to process large amounts of data quickly.
