Product Overview

Canon i-SENSYS LBP251dw in More Detail

Robust, reliable and simple to use, the i-SENSYS LBP251dw has been designed and built by Canon to offer straightforward black and white printing in the home or the office. With a simple-to-use interface and small footprint – the printer is perfect for smaller offices and workgroups, offering a consistently professional standard of output.

Faster Printing

Surprisingly for such a small printer, the i-SENSYS LBP251dw boasts an impressively fast print speed. Capable of producing up to 30ppm, the monochrome printer helps workgroups produce large documents and presentations in double quick time. With a quick sleep-to-print time, the machine can immediately offer printing support from a point of inactivity.

The simple-to-use control panel on the exterior of the printer makes operation of the machine incredibly quick and easy.

Cloud Printing

Understanding the needs of the modern work environment, Canon has moved to ensure the i-SENSYS LBP251dw offers Cloud connectivity options. Utilising Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print, it is easier than ever to print remotely saved documents from almost anywhere.

The free Canon app also accommodates printing direct from Apple and Android mobile devices – helping all users print from their smartphones or tablets.

Simplified Replacements

Thanks to the Canon All-in-One replacement cartridges, it is incredibly quick and simple to replace depleted ink stocks – meaning the i-SENSYS LBP251dw continues to offer constant print support.

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers.

(An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)
