Canon Laser Shot LBP-1120


Canon keeps things simple with its latest personal mono laser, concentrating on speed and print quality rather than fancy features.

CANON Laser Shot LBP-1120

LBP-1120 speaks out


Dual input trays, two output options and cheery voice prompts give Canon's LBP-1120 a friendly feel. And the kidney-shaped relief on the white chassis lends it a less utilitarian look

On the output side, you can expect 10 pages of text or graphics to print in around 1:50 (or sometimes less - some 10-page Word files printed in around 1:15). Text looks sharp at the 600dpi default for Word or the 300dpi for Excel. And graphics look...

Overall, I love this printer. I have used it for personal and business documents. It prints out quickly and has great print quality. I also like the shape of it, it is quite compact and fits neatly on your work desk. This is definitely a printer I...

This is a great printer! I have owned mine for at least seven years, and have had practically nothing go wrong with it.

It can be annoying if your paper gets jammed, as you have to open the printer, gently pull out the paper, re-insert the cartridge and print again.

I have had this printer for more than five years and it is still going strong. In all this time, I have only changed the laser cartridge once and this is after printing reams and reams of lecture notes for my two sisters and I during our years at...

Brillant laser, my old 1120 printed tens of thousands of pages and cheques. I sent the 1120 out onto construction sites as well, site personnel loved them, in the dirty environment they worked in.

Rugged, They went on and on forever, never died, ended up buying around 20 of them.

Paper jams sometimes when paper was wet but this istandard for most canons.

We have been using 3 LBP 1120 printers in the office for desktop's printers. They are a great little machine for short print runs of 10 pages or less (any bigger and we send them to the network printer). We have been using them for about 2 years and...

Product Specifications

Space is a valuable commodity, especially when it comes to a busy home office or small business. The Canon Laser Shot LBP-1120 packs all the features you need into one compact, space saving unit. With crisp, clean, professional printing, it gives you exactly what you want without making a big dent in your wallet. Since there's no warm up time when you switch it on, the Laser Shot LBP-1120 gets you on your way quickly. Automatic Image Refinement (AIR) gives you printing at a high 2400 x 600 dpi resolution. With Canon Advanced Printing Technology (CAPT), all printing data is stored onto your PC, doing away with the need for lots of printer memory. Smart Compression Architecture (SCoA) technology also compresses data before sending it to the printer, allowing even complex files to be printed quickly at 10 pages per minute. With the LBP 1120 you'll always know where you are - a Voice Assist feature keeps you informed of printing status. The printer won't slow you down either, with an All-In-One cartridge virtually eliminating maintenance and providing clean print, after clean print. With everything taken care of you're free to concentrate on your output. A 125-sheet paper capacity easily deals with large volume and lets you print transparencies, labels, postcards and envelopes.
