Marketed as a standard office all-in-one laser unit, the Gestetner 2212 gives consumers an affordable way to operate a printer, scanner and copier all within the same piece of machinery. Though this is considered one of the more simple models, lacking some of the advanced features that can be beneficial to some, confusing to others, the 2212 will be an asset to any average office.
Upon purchase, the manufacturer provides a number of components that make it simple for consumers to easily setup the machine as soon as they take it out of the box. Of course a power source is supplied, as well as a USB cable to connect to the computer, an input and an output paper tray and a black starter Gestetner 2212 toner cartridge because this is a monochrome unit. Though starter toners in general tend to last for fewer prints than standard printer toner, the replacement Gestetner 2212 toner cartridge has a maximum capacity of 11,000 prints, keeping overall cost per page low.
Unfortunately, the 2212 weighs over 100 pounds and is taller than it is wide. Clearly designed for an office and not as easy to move as personal printers, this laser machine is built to be durable and last for many years. From the off position, it takes about 15 seconds to warm up and then only 5 seconds to print out the first page. The speed rate beyond that is average for a machine of this nature.
When it comes to quality, the Gestetner 2212 toner can yield a resolution of about 600x600 dpi, which is good for text but not ideal for graphics or images. A duplexer is also available for automatic dual sided production but there is no network connection option. With the low cost per page created by the high-yielding Gestetner 2212 toner and the simple features, this laser unit is a solid choice.
