As an affordable and fairly compact desktop laser printer, the Lanier SP 3510DN could be the solution a lot of home and small office users are looking for. It reaches speeds of up to 30 pages per minute, and includes network support for easy sharing. High costs for replacement Lanier SP 3510DN printer toner are a problem, however.
The frame of the SP 3510DN doesn't consume a lot of desktop space, which is great for smaller offices. It measures just 10.4x14.6x15.4 inches, and its weigh of 28 pounds also includes the Lanier SP 3510DN toner supply. The paper supply starts out at 250 sheets in the main tray, with a 50-sheet bypass tray as a secondary solution for alternative media.
When printing, users have the option of 1200 dpi output for the sharpest quality, or 600 dpi for faster speeds and lower supply costs. The first print speed is around 8 seconds, and the unit takes only 20 seconds to warm-up when powered down, or only 15 seconds from Energy Saver mode. This is especially good news for users who might use their printer infrequently and leave it powered off when not in use.
The biggest cost of any model is generally replacing the toners, and this is where the unit falters. The Lanier SP 3510DN toner cartridges are a little pricey to replace, even with two sizes to choose from. The standard Lanier SP 3510DN toner cartridge has an estimated yield of around 2,500 pages, and the high-capacity version has a yield of around 6,400 pages. This means the cost per page is still fairly high.
It would be easy to recommend the Lanier SP 3510DN for its speed and paper handling, as well as its compact design and networking. Unfortunately, its value is reduced by the high cost of supplies, which will make it expensive to operate over time.
