Canon Laser Shot LBP 3200 Driver Download– Some small Canon printer has been likened to a toaster in the form, but the Laser Shot LBP3200 is more than a baker. Tall with a heavy line around, deceiving shallow from front to back.
We say deceptive, as the bottom-mounted paper tray stands behind a significant amount. Paper feeds in the Z-simple way to remove the top and came to rest against the steeply-raked, flip-up tray on top of the machine. A multi-purpose slot in the front face of the printer is only suitable for single sheets or envelopes, and the paper guides are not easy to adjust. Finally, there is a cover at the back that folds down so that you can recover from an occasional paper jam. Tested, we saw no signs of mishandling paper, even when we duplex test file 20 pages manually.
Indicators and controls bit, with a stylish blue LED, indicates power and print jobs in progress. A single USB port on the back is the only connection. The front cover hinges down to reveal a combined drum and toner cartridge, good for 2,500 pages, and is easy to fit and remove.
Installation could hardly be simpler, with the driver CD to install all the necessary software under Windows. Canon supports not macOS or Linux but does not support Windows versions back to 98.
Provide basic printer driver controls and supports page imposition of two, four, eight, and nine pages per sheet. The default resolution of 600 dpi can be reduced to 300dpi to print more quickly, but there is no support for the watermark or overprinting, with stamps as Confidential. There is no other software that came with the printer.
LBP3200 is rated at 18ppm and tested us to see our complete 20-page document in one minute 17 seconds, so this is a pretty good approximation. Consistent and Canon claim time of the first page in under eight seconds adjusted in our tests. It’s great to see a printer that lives up to the specifications, in this case, because the print speed is generally very excited.
A five-page mixture of text and graphics jobs takes 23 seconds, which again is very reasonable in the machine at the cheaper end of the group. Five-by-three-inch photo prints take just nine seconds, one of the fastest in the test.
Printed text quality is very reasonable, with good density and a little spread toner, and graphics output is generally smooth with little appeal. Graphic print greyscale is surprisingly rugged, largely due to the relatively low print resolution of 600 dpi, but there is little evidence of the appeal.
Canon recognizes that the printer is not quiet, with a noise assessed figure of 55dBA while printing. We saw the peak of 62dBA tested, so this printer can be very distracting if used as a personal device on the desktop.
