Canon i-SENSYS LBP6230dw Duplex Wi-Fi Mono Laser Printer : Excellent duplex printer

Replacing a failed lbp6300dn – very good, just remember it comes with a ‘trial’ toner cart.

I wanted a laser printer for my home office as i rarely need to print in colour and i prints lots of pages. The advantages of this laser printer over an inkjet are:• it does double-sided printing• it prints much faster• it costs less per page than an inkjet• it is quite smallit really is best for home office use – most homes will want a printer which is also a scanner.

Very quick duplex printing compared to my canon ink jet. No instructions in box on how to do this. Had to phone the help line to sort this as printer not seeing wi-fi. In the end i just needed to press and hold the wi-fi button on my bt home hub 5 to get the printer to see the signal. Marked down 1 star for this. Here are the specifications for the Canon i-SENSYS LBP6230dw Duplex Wi-Fi Mono Laser Printer:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Wi-Fi, network and mobile ready, mono laser printer
  • Easily print from smart devices with Canon Mobile Printing app
  • Save time and money with automatic 2-sided printing
  • Enjoy class leading energy efficiency
  • Fast, enhanced quality mono prints at 25ppm

So far i’ve been very pleased with this printer. Being able to print double sided is a real bonus. Life of cartridge is as i expected.

It is fast and double sided printing is a good idea, but the construction of the machine is somewhat flimsy, i have had the occasional paper jam and the print quality is unimpressive – often indistinct and fading between one line and another, even with the new cartridge supplied. That cartridge itself was supplied only partially filled – a bit mean.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Fast, good quality mono laser printer
  • I love Canon Printers, it’s in the name
  • Delivery was very good no problems

Being new to a duplex, i find it’s great to have less to file in the way of paper, and the occasional benefit of reduced postage costs. One minor issue i found that i need to get used to is that this printer turns standby off after a period of time, so after the first couple of times it failed to print on command i realised that i needed to press the ‘on’ button first.

Delivery was very good no problems. Delivery was very good no problems, had some problems connecting the printer to the router but canon was brilliant.

    I love canon printers, it’s in the name. Been using it for a year, works great, it’s fast and does both sides. Still on the first ink cartridge.

    Good quality monochrome laser printer. It is a little bit noisy but prints quickly and is more efficient than inkjet printers. However,set up was not completely seamless and i was unable to get this to work via wi-fi. The instruction manual isn’t up to scratch either. Its not the lightest printer in the world either.

    1. Canon i sensys duplex wi fi canon printer. I have a small office used for some charity work, family stuff and general correspondence. I’ve used an ink jet printer for years and find them very good especially for printing photos, the quality of the results has gone up dramatically over the years as well. The real draw back being that they can if producing multiples of a letter or anything else they can be very slow and costly in ink cartridges. The benefit of laser printer is that it is exceptionally quick (they say up to 20 copies a minute) and the print quality of fonts is on a par with ink jet. It will also do both sides very quickly as well. Another benefit which i hadn’t known is that they a not too bulky compared to some of the older machines. This machine it matched up to a mac and i found that it connected wifi very easily and quickly as well. Everything else used up till now has been by cable.

    Best buy for the office in years. . It is neat and fast and does all a small business or home office could ask of it. Duplexes at a great speed and makes booklet-making a one-step process. Could not ask for more – especially at the price.

    1. Quality double sided black and white only printer. Absolute nightmare to set up. Why oh why is there no substantial paper manual. Be aware, canon replacement cartridges are pricey.
