Canon i-SENSYS LBP6030w Wi-Fi Mono Laser Printer : Nice printer – good value.

Set up quickly, no real problems.

Works fine with my mac devices once. Small, elegant and good value. Works fine with my mac devices once correct driver installed.

Pretty easy to use and not too expensive. For those on os x: just ignore the bundled software and download the newest ones from canon’s site. Quick to print, compact, pretty easy to use and not too expensive. Wireless was no problem to set up – at worst you just attach it via the usb cable during set up then good to go. Ideal for document/label printing. Here are the specifications for the Canon i-SENSYS LBP6030w Wi-Fi Mono Laser Printer:

Hi i received this this morning so can’t review the long term use of this printer but wanted to give a few set up tips. The setup of the printer itself is quite straight forward (changing toner, plugging in etc). However, our main pc is quite old and didn’t recognise the driver installer from the disc. I tried on my laptop (newer) and it ran perfect in seconds. If you have this problem visit canon website to download installer driver. Select your printer model and click download on the page that is related to your model. Once this has downloaded, find file in your downloads folder, click on pdf to read instructions. Involves connecting printer to wireless network and then installing the driver so your computer will recognise it.

Very happy with this product, it is connected to my imac, macbook and hp laptop, set up for the apple devices wasn’t to bad, you have to get the driver from the canon web site, its really quite easy, the wifi set up for all three devices was easy too, its connected via a bt hub 5. I have also down loaded the app for my ios devices.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Cute little printer. Very cheap to run. Great for rooms without space
  • pretty easy to use and not too expensive
  • elegant and good value. Works fine with my Mac devices once

Good printer, easy to install and very fast for print.

Great for rooms without space. This warrants my longest review about its specifications, as getting the right printer is a nightmare for anyone. ~ size: it’s about half the size of a flat box-shaped printer. It’s depth (width) is the same size as the longest side of a basic mouse mat. ~ paper tray: there’s a small ‘pull down lid’ right at the front of the printer, where you feed in the paper (which is different from pulling out a paper tray, as with most flat box-shaped printers). This is great for space issues, although you can’t keep paper inside it unlike other printers, unless of course you keep the lid down. Although the dust will get inside (but to be honest it’s not exactly going to kill you grabbing a bit of paper to put in it each time)~ paper collector: on the top of the printer is another lid, which acts as the paper collector.

One comment on “Canon i-SENSYS LBP6030w Wi-Fi Mono Laser Printer : Nice printer – good value.

  1. Good print, shame about the wi-fi. Warms up quickly, prints quickly and quietly. I particularly wanted a wi-fi printer and would still like one. So far everything i have ever connected to my network has worked well – until now. I have spent quite some time trying to get it recognised but to no avail. I did not find the instructions very helpful. Perhaps i need more experience with computers, i only started in the late 1970s when i got my soldering iron out and made my own. Although i cannot be sure, i think the problem may be that my router is too old and this machine requires something more modern, however, i am not going to the trouble and expense of replacing a router that works perfectly well with everything else just on the off-chance that it may then say hello to a picky printer. When i want to get a printout i shall have to take my macbook into another room and wire it up to my nice new ‘wi-fi’ printer.

    Nice printer – good value. . Simple to use; lovely quick printing. Easy to set up with usb but the wi-fi took a bit longer to set up. Persevere with the wi-fi set up as it is worth it – it’s great printing wirelessly from my laptop now.Good value although replacement cartridges will be quite expensive; too soon to say how long they last.
