The Lanier SP C831DN is a color laser printer designed for mid-sized office environments. Its output speed of 55 pages per minute equips it to handle a fast-paced workflow, and upgrade options will let it grow and expand as needed. With both duplexing and networking included, it is a significant upgrade for the SP C831 series.
As a single-function device, the SP C831DN doesn't include features like scanning and faxing that some buyers might be looking for. It does support media up to 11x17 inches in size, however, and offers an equivalent print resolution of 9600x600 dpi, which results in very sharp images and graphics. The input paper capacity includes two 550-sheet trays and a 100-sheet bypass tray for more flexibility, and upgrades can push it to a maximum of 4,400 pages when office volumes require it.
Unlike the similar SP C830 model, this unit comes with a 250 GB hard drive as a standard feature. This allows users to store their documents directly, and to share them across the network. Those worried about keeping documents safe can implement a number of security features, such as Locked Print, which requires a password to release a document for printing.
The 4.3-inch touchscreen display is more intuitive to use than the average directional pad, and users can easily keep an eye on the Lanier SP C831DN printer toner supply, as well as the paper trays. Administration rules and quotas can also limit users to reduce excessive usage of Lanier SP C831DN toner.
Speaking of toners, with four Lanier SP C831DN toner cartridges to replace, the cost of OEM supplies can be a little tough to bear. Buyers can seek out compatible Lanier SP C831DN toner cartridges, however, at a little over half the cost, saving a lot of money over the long run.
While its single-function design may turn away a lot of potential buyers, the SP C831DN is an impressive laser printer with a solid feature set. Its output speed and upgradeability set it up for future growth that should make it an appealing choice for an expanding office.
