The Canon LBP-850 is a compact desktop laser printer with solid speeds and an expandable paper capacity, so it is a good fit for the busy individual. It requires virtually no warm-up time, and has a low-power standby mode to conserve power. It also uses affordable Canon LBP-850 printer toner that will help users save money with every print. The LBP-850 has a height of only 11.8 inches and a footprint of 19.2x24 inches. Although this is bulkier than some personal machines, it is still a fairly easy fit on a desk surface. It connects via parallel port only; so many users will need a USB adapter to connect it to modern computers. The main paper tray holds only 250 sheets, which is a good size for an individual, but an additional 1,000-sheet tray can be added for small office use.
