Canon introduces its latest range of stylish, affordable laser printers for the practical consumer

17 Nov

Canon launches it’s smallest-ever Laser printers, with the Laser Shot LBP3050 and LBP3150. Measuring just 372 x 250 x 197mm, they come in a practical contemporary design with no compromise on Canon quality. The compact, sleek design allows for a more ergonomic design, which melts discreetly into any small workspace and weighs a paltry 5.4kgs. The smart design dismisses the use of an extended tray as a practical space saving solution and the retractable output tray also doubles up as a dust cover when not in use.

Not one to compromise on printing efficiency, the Laser Shot LBP3050 prints at a rapid speed of 14ppm and 16ppm for the LBP3150. You get your first printout in 8.5 seconds, a 15 percent increase in speed as compared to previous models. Achieve detailed, high quality monochrome prints up to 2400 x 600 resolution, made possible with Canon’s Automatic Image Refinement Technology (A.I.R). With a unique U-shaped paper pass for smooth passage of printed sheets, possibilities of annoying paper jams are significantly reduced.
With absolutely no warm-up time on standby mode, both the Laser Shot LBP3050 and LBP3150 come with patented On-Demand Fixing Technology, which allows for more efficient, time saving printouts with great energy savings. Couple this with Canon Advanced Printing Technology (CAPT 3.0), hasty printing speed is achieved by utilising the host computer to manage print jobs. High Smart Compression Architecture (Hi-SCoA) then aids by compressing data to be delivered in manageable sizes, so less printer RAM is needed for processing. This is a long-term cost effective feature, as the Laser Shot LBP3050 and LBP3150 come with 2MB RAM built-in, with no further memory upgrades required.

But cost-saving features do not stop there. The Laser Shot LBP3050 and LBP3150 consume a minimal 280W while printing and runs on only 2W while on standby and sleep modes. An easy access frontal power switch is another energy saving feature, which visually reminds users to power off after each use.
