Canon revealed its first lineup of singe function laser printer with the four imageCLASS LBP printers announced last fall.

We reviewed the monochrome imageCLASS LBP6650dn printer earlier this year and now we turn to its color counterpart, the imageCLASS LBP7200Cdn single funtion color laser.

The imageCLASS LBP7200Cdn features print speeds up to 21 ppm in both black and color, a print resolution up to 2400 x 600 dpi, a 250-sheet cassette with 50-sheet multi-purpose tray, automatic duplexing and built-in networking.

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 lights and one key, for canceling jobs.

Pull the front open to reveal the toner cartridge drawer. The drawer holds the four Canon 118 cartridges (CMYK) which contain the toner, drum and development unit in one single piece.

Grab the blue handle to open the 50-sheet multi-purpose tray, perfect for unique media such as labels, transparencies and envelopes. The 250-sheet paper drawer is located directly beneath and can handle a variety of media up to 58 lbs in weight. For businesses with a heavier print volume, Canon offers an additional 250-sheet paper drawer for a total paper capacity of 550-sheets.
