CANON COMPUTER SYSTEMS INTRODUCES FIRST LASER-QUALITY 11x17-INCH BUBBLE JET PRINTER AT A STREET PRICE LESS THAN $500

 COSTA MESA, Calif., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Canon Computer Systems Inc. (CCSI) today introduced the newest member of its next-generation Bubble Jet printer family, the BJ-230. The 11x17-inch format desktop printer is targeted at customers in the accounting or engineering fields and general business. These individuals need to output large format spreadsheets, technical drawings and gaant charts as well as traditional letter and legal-sized documents. The laser quality BJ-230 is expected to have a street price of about $450.
 "Currently, the only high-quality printers that support 11 by 17-inch paper are specialty laser printers priced at a minimum of $2,500," said Carolyn Perrier, director of printer marketing. "Through customer research we found that small business users need access to large format printers, but there were no reasonably priced, laser quality options. The BJ-230 provides letter and legal-sized output plus the large format they desire at a low price."
 BJ-230 Specifications
 The economical BJ-230 rivals four-page-per-minute laser printers with 360 dot-per-inch (dpi) resolution and outputs on all types and sizes of paper, labels, transparencies and envelopes. The BJ-230 is (width) 16.9 inches by (depth) 8.2 inches by (height) 7.9 inches and weighs only 7.7 pounds. The small footprint printer is up to 30 percent faster than the BJ-200 under Microsoft Windows in landscape business applications.
