Canon ImageRunner 2800

This four-in-one machine is ideal for home use as well as small and large offices. This printer, copier, fax machine and scanner offers a decent set of features at the best quality for the price.

The Canon Image Runner 2800 provides black and white printing and its maximum speed is 28 pages per minute. Its copier offers a copy ratio from 255 to 8005. Its best resolution is 1200 dpi which is favorable for both office and home uses. Its first copy time is only 5.8 seconds from cold, and it has a maximum sheet capacity of 50 sheets which isn’t a lot but it also contains an automatic document feeder which covers up this shortcoming.

Its maximum media size is up to 4 x 17 in. Its fax transmission speed is as fast as 3 second/ page at a speed of 33.3k. It even has duplex printing options while its monthly duty cycle goes up to 100,000 pages, which is more than enough for most business needs.

This multifunctional machine is easy to carry as it does not have a huge weight. It is also favorable because of its limited size as it does not require a large space to put it in. The drum unit and the toner are both included inside this machine therefore no extra space is required to put them and there are not internal complications due to their placement.

The machine is easy to use and easily set up. The set up only requires the installing of the cartridges which is clearly shown in the manuals. The setting up of its connection with a PC is as simple as a few clicks on the mouse and this job hardly takes a few minutes. It is also simple to use as it does not have any complicated buttons and procedures to get it going. All the buttons are clearly labeled and therefore can be easily understood for their functions.

Even though this multi functional machine carries an extended number of functions, it still is not noisier than the other machines of the same type. It is completely silent when in standby mode and when in use, it only creates a slight noise, which is not disturbing. It hardly ever is jammed during its use and it rarely malfunctions if used properly.

All-in-all, this is an ideal machine for the small office. Its features might be a little too much for a home office, but it’s small enough to fit if you wanted one.
