DataMaster Lab gives the Canon iR Advance 3500i series 4.5 stars

17 November 2017

The Canon iR Advance C3520i, C3525i et C3530i A3 color multifunction printers have been through all the DataMaster Lab tests and evaluations.  We are pleased to announce that they have obtained the very good rating of 4.5/5 stars.

This range replaces the Canon iR Advance C3320i, C3325i et C3330i.

The productivity of these machines in general terms is worth highlighting, particularly in duplex (double-sided) mode.  They can print out onto both sides of A3/ledger at up to 6% faster than onto single-sided.  They also motor through mixed media / mixplex documents, such as those with a thick cover.  The fuser can change temperature at an impressive speed. 

The print quality of small black characters is good, but overall there is a lack of precision, chromatic noise, overdosing of black toner and a misty effect on photos.

's analyses and assessments are completely independent.  Five-star certificates are extremely rare.  To attain five stars, not only must the equipment under test demonstrate an excellent performance in most categories, but must have no major weakness in any of the evaluation criteria.  

Machines' evaluation certificates and the corresponding rosette badges (as well as those for other machines in the range with the same print engine, plus any rebadged machines sold by other brands) can all be downloaded for FREE.
Their radar charts, and the detailed results of the productivity tests are available on our benchmarking platform DMO which is available to you by subscription.
