You probably don’t believe I’m using the same printer since last 10 years. The only thing I have to do refilling the toner cartridge.

Canon LBP 2900B Laser Printer Review:

Here is the complete review of Canon LBP 2900B Laser Printer along with its major specifications and features.
Build Quality & Size.

The printer comes in black color and it is solidly built. The plastic used in the construction of this printer is pretty good and you do not feel that it is of cheap or inferior quality.




This is a robust printer with all the feature benefits, the LBP2900B fits into any small office environment does not occupy much space on your home or office desk.

While ensuring the equivalent of high 2400 x 600dpi laser-quality and jam-free operations for perfect prints, in just 9 Seconds.

LBP 2900B Design:

Canon LBP2900B Laser Printer is designed in a size of 370 x 251 x 217mm and weighs approximately 5.7 kg.

It has a built-in paper tray that can easily accommodate up to 150 sheets and can produce an output of 100 sheets in face down position.

It also has a manual feeder tray used to feed a single sheet or an envelope at a time.

Canon 2900B Processor and Memory:

This printer is available with standard 2MB on-board memory so that you don’t require any additional memory for storage purpose.

Canon Print Performance:

Canon LBP2900B Laser Printer can print crisp and clear documents, presentations at the rate of 12 pages per minute on A4 size paper.

Here it is slightly slower than HP 1020 plus which has printing speed of 14 ppm. The printed documents and images comes at a resolution of 600 x 600dpi.

Canon’s On-demand Fixing Technology ensures quick transfer of heat to deliver faster print outputs and also saves power costs.

With the Automatic Image Refinement Technology, this printer allows smoothing up to a resolution 2400 x 600 dpi to deliver high-quality printouts quickly.

This printer makes use of Canon Cartridge 303 that can print up to 2000 A4 pages.

It will also support the 12A Toner Cartridge that comes fitted with HP Laserjet 1020 plus and HP M1005 MFP AIO Printers, which is a widely popular, cheap and easily available toner cartridge.

You can also refill the cartridge if you run out of toner. It takes around Rs. 250 – 350/- to refill the cartridge from the market.

For refilling I would advise you to go for good quality micro fine magnetic toner powder if you want the cartridge to last longer.



Canon LBP 2900B does not disappoint in performance either and it is one of the best performing black and white laser printer in the budget price segment.

Its major rival is HP Laserjet 1020 plus which is also a very popular and trustworthy monochrome laser printer in this price segment.

Canon CAPT 2.1 processing power

By harnessing the power of Canon Advanced Printing Technology (CAPT) and Hi-SciA (High Smart Compression Architecture), this printer is able to process image data faster than conventional printers.

What Hi-ScoA does is compressing print data into smaller sizes for quick transferring from computer to printer with CAPT. The result is superior print speeds without any expensive printer memory upgrades.

This printer is almost maintenance free and you would not have to do anything except refilling the cartridge when it runs out of ink.

Also there is no problem of paper jam in this printer no matter how old it becomes.

There is no out of the box duplex printing support in the printer and nor you get this feature in companies supplied software CD, but you can perform duplex printing using some third party software.
