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.
