Canon PC950 review
Designed to compliment the contemporary home-office or small business environment, the PC950 personal copier, incorporates sleek, modern design with large colorful buttons that's easy to use. They not only look great in any office, but the compact dimensions take up just a minimum amount of space as well.
Ready when you are, the Energy Star-compliant PC950 incorporates Canon's exclusive RAPID Fusing System, which provides instant warm-up that eliminates waiting time. Auto shut-off is a built-in energy saving feature designed to automatically shut-off the copier after approximately five minutes of non-use.
Canon also delivers economy and value to the PC950. Toner Saver mode vastly improves operating economy without losing definition common to so many draft modes. It effectively doubles output from the toner cartridge compared to standard mode.
The PC950 is a small copier with advanced features. It will copy 12 A4 pages per minute and has multiple paper feeding, using an easily-accessible 250-sheet front loading cassette or the 50-sheet multi-stack bypass.

In addition, the PC950 can copy as many as 100 copies at a time. The automatic, manual exposure controls and photo mode give you superb copies from any original including photographs, newspapers and magazines. For added flexibility, the PC950 copies on a variety of sizes and materials, including labels, transparencies and business cards. Toner cartridges are available in red, green blue, brown and traditional black. It's everything you need to deliver unrivaled copying productivity for your office.
