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
