Canon i-Sensys LBP2900B review


If the evidence of this supertest is anything to go by, mono laser printers are seldom synonymous with style.

Oi, who's nicked me muffins? It's as cheap as an inkjet, but just as slow.

Canon LBP2900B


The Canon LBP2900B produces good quality prints, but misses out the manual duplex feature, which should be there at this price.

Good print quality ; Low purchase cost ; Reasonably low running cost

No manual duplex printing ; Average printing speed

Overall good quality prints, and average cost of running. Misses out manual duplex feature. Forgivable in the low cost Xerox, but not in this case.
