"Canon PC730 is yet another personal copier made by Canon meant for light users such as students and small offices. However, users should take note that Canon PC730 is not a multifunction machine but a decent copier indeed. For those who needs a complete multifunction printer, go with the Canon MP390. Alternatively, Canon PC730 can replicate high quality documents using its laser-monochrome printing technology. For the lack of color support, bear in mind that Canon PC730 is an obsolete machine which clearly explains the absence of colored replicating options. The unit measures 14.1 by 17.3 by 4.5 inches with a weight of no more than 18.7 pounds. Bearing the same footprint as with Canon PC730, Canon PC5L is a newer and more reliable copier compare to the former. Also, with such dimensions, offices with limited spaces will likewise enjoy the minute footprint and insubstantial weight of Canon PC5L. Alternatively, Canon PC730 features a decent media capacity of 50 sheets which might not be big in today's standard but then 50 sheets are actually enough to accommodate light copying tasks. When it comes to copying, Canon PC730 doesn't have highly technical specifications yet considered to be decent for most basic users. The copy speed of Canon PC730 is set at 4 pages per minute while there are two exposure controls available for a more personalized duplicating experience. Moving on, the first copy out time of Canon PC730 is fast at 22 seconds allowing users to quickly replicate contents even if the machine comes from the off-mode state. Compatible printing supplies for Canon PC730 are widely available on most third party ink providers even if the unit itself comes outdated. Equally, Canon PC5L toner cartridges are known to produce 4,000 pages of contents all with deeper blacks, crisper text images and sharper lines. Besides being high quality, Canon PC5L toners works with Canon PC140 PC Printers, Canon PC150 PC Printers, Canon PC300 PC Printers, Canon PC320 PC Printers, Canon PC325 PC Printers, Canon PC40s, Canon PC420 PC Printers, Canon PC428 PC Printers and all others for best versatility as well as practicality. In all, Canon PC5L might not offer duplexing, colored copying, scanning or faxing yet for its reasonable price tag; offices with limited budget will certainly enjoy the utmost cost-efficiency of this copier. Having an affordable standalone copier is also recommended for homes and offices where duplicating is still a major routine that needs to be implemented. "
