The LX was the first Canon engine to use
a transfer roller instead of a corona wire in the printing
process. This gives improved coverage of toner on paper, eliminating
"toner scatter". It also eliminates ozone emissions
and the need for ozone filters.
The LX prints four pages per minute and comes with
a multipurpose paper tray that holds sizes from 3 1/2 by 5 inches up to 8 1/2 by 14 inches.
LX printers also give the user a choice of face-up (collated)
or face-down (reverse collated) printing.
A popular accessory for LX printers is
the optional second paper feeder and cassette assembly, which
comes in a variety of sizes and includes a cassette that holds
up to 250 sheets of paper. It turns the LX into a dual bin
printer with a second addressable paper tray. The LX printers
have a small footprint, meaning they take up less of your
work space, and the optional cassette assembly fits underneath,
keeping the footprint small. See Diagram
