Canon i-SENSYS LBP5100 Colour Laser Printer


An affordable price and clever duplex system make the Canon i-SENSYS LBP5100 an attractive option, even if it's not fastest out there.

The software supplied is basic, but includes a driver that supports all the features of the printer, including duplex print, multiple pages per sheet and watermarks.

I have found it to be a relaible printer. Quiet and quick to print. I am disappointed in the lack of 64 bit driver now that I want to upgrade my computer.
