I bought this copier to replace a 10 year-old Canon FC model(unknown number) which was a basic B&W A4 laser sliding carriage photocopier (the feeder mechanism had finally failed beyond my ability to keep repairing it). But it gave 10 years of steady service. The new FC120 seems to be exactly the same copier with just one or two cosmetic refinements. It looks nearly the same, it weighs the same, it sounds the same, it uses the same toner cartridges. But thats fine because its going to be doing the same job as the last one. Speed is rarely a consideration for me. It seems a steady performer like its predecessor and if it givfes 10 years of steady service I will have no complaints.
