The Gestetner MP 3053 is a monochrome multifunction laser copier with the added functionality of copying, scanning, and faxing, depending on which features buyers need. Its maximum speed of 30 pages per minute won't take home any awards, but features like a reversing automatic document feeder and inexpensive Gestetner MP 3053 printer toner supplies add a lot of value for busy users.
The machine measures 32.6x23.1x25.7 inches in its standard configuration, and weighs around 165 pounds with the Gestetner MP 3053 toner cartridge installed. This makes it possibly a little bulky for the smallest offices, but it still has a relatively compact footprint. The control panel includes a large touchscreen display with a modern interface that supports gestures like swiping that will be familiar for smartphone and tablet users.
Users who add the scanning option will get a lot more from the machine, as the 100-sheet automatic document feeder can scan two-sided originals in a single pass, at a maximum of 80 originals per minute. With an optional OCR unit, they can turn their documents into searchable PDF files, and scanned documents can be sent via email, saved to an FTP or SMB server, or saved to USB or SD memory with the included slots.
The monochrome design means multiple toners aren't needed, with only a single Gestetner MP 3053 toner cartridge that is affordable to replace. Compatible Gestetner MP 3053 toner is even available from many third-party vendors, offering a significant price break from more expensive OEM supplies.
While many buyers may get hung up on the MP 3053's slow speeds, the benefits of its excellent touchscreen control panel and affordable supplies outweigh this small drawback. With the option to choose which functions are needed, as well as several upgrade options including extra paper capacity, this device is a great value.
