Small and portable — a great notebook accessory.
Measuring just 4 1/2"H x 14 1/10"W x 17 3/10"D when folded, and weighing just over 18 1/2 lb, the PC170 fits comfortably on your desktop and is portable enough to go wherever you go. The built-in pop-up handle and folding design make it a breeze to tote your copier from office to meeting and back again.
Instant-on means no waiting.
Because it requires no warm-up, your new copier is ready to work when you are…saving you valuable time in a time in a pinch.
50-sheet paper tray makes copying hassle-free.
Load the tray with letter-size sheets, set the copier on full-feed, and make up to 50 copies without having to hover around the machine. Or, select the exact number of copies you need, up to 9 at a time.
Single Cartridge System for easy maintenance.
With Canon's patented Single Cartridge System, almost everything that can run out or wear out — including toner, drum and development unit — is contained in 1 easily replaceable cartridge to make maintenance quick and simple.
Adjustable slide lets you control exposure.
Use the slide to regulate how dark or light your copies come out, so they look the way you want them…every time!
Steady copying — up to 4 cpm (copies per minute).
The PC170 gives you reliable, convenient copies at a pace that won't slow you down.
Backed by the manufacturer's 1-year limited warranty.
Maybe too soon to judge
I've only had the copier about a week and it made beauiful copies in the beginning until today when I start making copies of my dental records. Now the copies are coming out smudged. Ran a couple more and still smudges. Seem to work well if coping plain white paper.

Canon PC170 Personal Copier
This Canon PC 170 is the equivalent to the one we replaced, which had served us for 15 years for home and crafting purposes. It seems a bit slower and noisier than the old one. Overall it does its job and uses less toner than the color printers we have that are attached to the computers. We like the clear copies, the ability to control the lightness or darkness of copies and the feature of no waiting until ready for first copy. Great price is also a plus.

Great Personal Copier
Bought this to use on my job as a field supervisor. Need to make copies of documents on the run. It can't be beat for convenience. Copy quality is as good as any office copier. The paper trays are very vunerable to breakage. I bumped one and it broke without much force, so I learned to be a bit more careful. Aside from the fragile paper trays, it is a great value.

We bought this to do our application process but it statred acting up 4 months after we bought it...we replaced the cartridge and that didn't work...we called canon and they shipped out a new one. Its a ok machine but only for small business.
