Not all buyers need the extra cost and hassle of a multifunction device, so the Lanier SP 3500N is a single-function laser printer that focuses on high-quality output instead of complicated features. It can print up to 30 pages per minute, which is a little slow compared to competing models. Its biggest downside, however, is expensive Lanier SP 3500N printer toner supplies.
Network printing is one of the main focuses of the device, so the included ethernet port is essential. It can easily be shared among a small or medium-sized office of multiple users, and it is easy to set up as well. With a compact footprint of only 14.6x15.4 inches, it won't consume a lot of office space, and it weighs just 26 pounds even with the Lanier SP 3500N toner supply installed.
Of course, output quality is just as important as speed and other factors, and the SP 3500N can deliver on this front as well. It has quality settings that range from 600x600 dpi to 1200x1200 dpi, though the latter is significantly slower in speed. Automatic duplexing is not available, though users can feed pages manually to achieve duplex documents when needed.
The cost of toners is one of the biggest problems to overcome, as Lanier SP 3500N toner cartridges are fairly expensive to replace. Users have the option of the standard Lanier SP 3500N toner cartridge with a yield of around 2,500 pages or a high-capacity version that can supply around 6,400 pages. Unfortunately, both options are costly compared to those of the competition.
The Lanier SP 3500N is an impressive machine that gets most things right. Its output speed is adequate, and its sharp output quality is what most buyers will be looking for. Although its purchase price is affordable, however, its operating costs are too high to recommend the device, with other more cost-effective options available in its class.
