The Canon LBP-350 is a desktop printer specifically designed for home users. Its speeds prove this, printing only 8 pages per minute using Canon LBP-350 toner. These speeds are nothing to write home aboutÑthere are units on the market that can print up to 5 times as quick is that. For college students these speeds would be more of a hindrance than a help. However, home users who print only a page or two at a time or very rarely in general probably won't think that these speeds are a problem at all. One good thing is that the unit has a warm-up time of only 8 seconds, but the first print out will probably take around 18 seconds to be produced.
