Ideal for workgroups, the Canon IR-2525i is a networkable multifunction laser printer that offers colour scanning, black and white printing, copying, and optional fax sending capabilities. It is a compact all-in-one with larger paper capacity and larger built-in memory, making it more suitable for offices with higher printing demands. The Canon IR-2525i even offers varied configuration options and is energy efficient, ideal for users who are very environmentally conscious. The Canon ImageRUNNER 2525i laser printer comes standard with an automatic duplexer, which helps users save on paper consumption. However, the device does not offer colour printing and is quite unimpressive in terms of print speed.
The Canon IR-2525i can be used as a free standing or a desktop device. It has numerous upgrade options, starting from the optional fax modem to the optional paper cassettes, which increases the unit's total paper capacity. The Canon ImageRUNNER IR-2525i multifunction printer is built for large format printing, capable of processing A3 documents, but is versatile enough to print on smaller media, using the bypass tray. The device uses a digital scanner and copier, and scanned images can be sent directly to various file destinations, including a USB flash memory device. The Canon IR 2525i printer has Ethernet and USB connectivity for fast data transmission.
The best qualities of the Canon IR-2525i monochrome multifunction printer include its high-resolution outputs, versatile media handling options, copy scaling, fast warm-up time, and high monthly duty cycle capacity. The ImageRUNNER 2525i can produce images with resolutions up to 600x600 dpi, while documents have output resolutions of up to 1200x1200 dpi. The IR2525i printer can even be configured with an optional automatic document feeder for easier handling of multi-page documents. Producing a low cost-per-copy, the Canon IR2525i black and white printer uses a cost-friendly Canon CEXV33 printer cartridge which lasts for up to 14,600 pages.
However, the Canon IR-2525i copier printer also has its limitations, ranging from a rather slow print rate to its incapability of producing colour prints. The fax function only comes as an optional upgrade.
