High Volume / Workgroup Fax Machines

Canon Laserclass 810 & 830i

Built for the high volume market, the Canon Laserclass 810 and 830i are almost better classified as high volume printer / scanner units with fax capabilities than pure fax machines.

With this true multifunction ability comes the ability to also handle a high level of faxing volume, whether inbound or outbound. Sequential broadcast and address book dialing are two features that anyone running broadcast level faxing will find a major convenience.

While both models offer top of the line faxing abilities, the 830i also adds the features of color scanning as well as other features.
