Before buying any printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.

Printer Overview

The i-SENSYS LBP253x is a black and white laser device from Canon, offering excellent black and white output. It performs well providing quality prints with decent speeds .

It's a robustly built printer, intended for low volume workloads in a home office or a small office environment. In our opinion it is best suited for home offices with very light print requirements

As this is a standard printer, it does not offer any additional functionality besides printing. If you need other abilities, such as scanning or faxing, you should look at multifunctional printers.

The Canon i-SENSYS LBP253x features a touch screen panel for easily printing and adjusting print settings and performing other useful tasks.


The i-SENSYS LBP253x has acceptable mono output, with a print resolution of 600 x 600 DPI. There is an enhanced resolution function that also enables you to print at an even higher quality - should the need arise - although the print speed is a fair bit slower.

Offering A4 print speeds of up to 33 pages per minute, you can be sure of efficient printing for large print jobs. Duplex printing function allows you to print on both sides of a page, saving you money and reducing the environmental impact. This printer also offers a time-to-first-page of 6 seconds meaning short and one-off print jobs are quick and easy to complete.

Extra print features for this device include: Envelope printing and Printing on transparent material
