The Savin SP C252 color laser printer is designed for small office environments, but also has the upgrade options to expand with future growth. It has quick output speeds of up to 21 pages per minute, whether in color or black-and-white, and a quick first page out time of 14 seconds. Its high price tag and expensive Savin SP C252 printer toner do undermine some of its better features, however.
In addition to the SP C252DN base model, the SP C252SF multifunction model adds scanning, copying and faxing to the mix. Where the base model excels is in high-quality printing, with a standard 600x600 dpi mode for normal prints, and a 2400x600 dpi mode for photos and documents that need more punch. A Toner Save mode is also available for reducing the amount of Savin SP C252 toner being used.
Duplexing and networking are two of the highlighted features, with both an ethernet port and wireless support included. It also supports mobile printing from smartphones, tablets, and other devices. Security features help keep important documents safe by requiring a PIN before printing starts. The Web Image Monitor can help users view the level of paper and toners remaining, or to solve maintenance issues, from any computer on the network.
With separate Savin SP C252 toner cartridges for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, buyers will end up spending quite a lot on supplies. Each Savin SP C252 toner cartridge has an estimated yield of 6,000-6,500 pages, but the cost per page is still higher than much of its competition.
The SP C252 is streamlined for fast printing and high-quality output, and its response time, networking, and mobile printing features add a lot of value. Ultimately, it is let down by a high price tag and expensive supplies, however, making competing models a much better choice.
