Canon imageCLASS LBP151dw review

 

Single-function printers -- those without scanning or copying capability -- are a rare species these days, but a simple monochrome laser printer like the Canon imageCLASS LBP151dw ($169, £119, AU$230) is all you really need if you print mostly text...

The Canon LBP151DW is adept at printing high quality text documents with respectable print speeds. With the help of its 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi print server, it can also connect to the cloud to print directly from mobile devices and Google Chrome Web browsers.

The printer can't scan or copy documents; doesn't support Apple AirPrint; the toner refills are more expensive than average.

The Canon LBP151DW is a competent workhorse laser printer, but rival models offer more features and lower ink costs for the same price.

Canon imageClass LBP151dw

 

The Canon ImageClass LBP151dw is a speedy, budget mono laser printer with above-average text, and is a good fit for a micro or home office.

Speedy. Good text quality. Compact. Connects via USB, Ethernet, or Wi-Fi.

Slightly below-par graphics. Lacks the Wi-Fi Direct connectivity seen in some of its competitors.

Conclusion The Canon ImageClass LBP151dw is a compact and capable mono laser printer for use in a micro or home office or as a personal printer. It lacks the Wi-Fi Direct connectivity found in the Samsung M2825DWand the Dell E310dw, but does via...

Canon ImageClass LBP151dw Review and Ratings

 

This very fast, compact mono laser prints well, and the feature set is reasonable for the price, but Canon needs to push down the cost per page.

Decent-looking print quality, especially text ; Very speedy for the price ; Duplex printing ; Sturdy, compact build ; Supports USB, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet connectivity

High cost per page ; Limited mobile connectivity: no Wi-Fi Direct or NFC support

We liked the ImageClass LBP151dw. It was faster than we expected for the price, it printed well, and it and its paper path behaved through our litany of tests, printing page after page with no mishaps. That it’s the fastest in its class we've tested...
