The imageCLASS LBP7200Cdn design is fairly compact measuring in at approximately 16 x 19 x 13 inches and has a simple look done in gray and off white. The one design issue is that it’s heavy; it weighs over 55 lbs with consumables.

As a single function color laser, the imageCLASS LBP7200Cdn is fairly basic so the control panel is comprised of a few LED light and one key, for canceling jobs.
