Product Overview

Canon’s two new imageCLASS LBP228dw is intended for small workgroups, such as small departments within a larger company. It prints at up to 40 ppm and has a 5″ color touchscreen control panel as well as the Canon Application Library platform.

The platform lets administrators set up one-touch button for several key functions:Print Template, Standby Slide, Consumables Information, and Languages.

The LBP228dw includes the Canon Custom Processor and 1 GB of memory. First-print-out time is 5.3 seconds. The printer supports Canon’s proprietary printing language, PCL and PostScript. USB, Ethernet and Wi-Fi are standard. Users can directly print JPEG, PDF, and TIFF files.

Mobile and cloud printing is also supported. Users can print from their mobile devices using any of the following apps: Apple AirPrint, Canon PRINT Business, Mopria Print Service, uniFLOW Secure Mobile Printing or Google Cloud Print.

Canon offers an optional uniFLOW portfolio that helps companies better manage their output. Deployed either in the cloud (uniFLOW Online) or on-premise, the solution allows administrators to track their printing costs. There’s also the imageWARE Enterprise Management Console, which is used to manage the entire Canon printer fleet from one location.

More details on the device is in our Features section below.

The imageCLASS LBP228dw is ideal for larger companies that already have Canon equipment installed and is looking for a low-printing volume device for one of its small departments.


The LBP228dw includes a 250-sheet paper tray and a 100-sheet bypass. Canon offers an optional 550-sheet tray that adds to a maximum paper capacity of 900 sheets. All paper trays accept up to 8.5″ x 14″ paper.

The output capacity is 65 sheets. The recommended monthly page volume is between 750 and 4,000 pages. Duplexing is standard.

Additional printing features are secure print, page border, header/footer, page layout, collating, booklet printing, grouping and mixed paper sizes and orientation.

The LBP228dw ships with a standard toner cartridge of 3,000 pages. Canon offers a high-yield aftermarket toner cartridge that yields 10,000 pages. Unfortunately, we don’t have the information to calculate the cost per page. Aside from using the high-yield cartridge, businesses can save on printing expenses by taking advantage of Canon’s environmental features, such as duplexing.

Security features include department ID authentication, IP/MAC address filtering and Wi-Fi authentication.

The standard limited warranty is for one year. However, users can optionally purchase one-year, two-year, three-year or four-year warranty packages to extend it.
