Designed for the medium-sized office with an eye toward future growth, the Savin SP C831DN is a very appealing color laser printer with speeds of up to 55 pages per minute. Savin SP C831DN printer toner costs are affordable, as long as buyers seek third-party supplies, and multiple upgrade options are perfect for an expanding office.
It is important for buyers to note that the SP C831DN is a single-function laser printer, without multifunction features like scanning and copying. It does include duplexing and networking, however, which is denoted by the "DN" added to the SP C831 series number.
A 250 GB hard drive does allow it to act as a simple file server for networked computers. Security features can keep the files safe, with features like Locked Print that keep certain documents from printing unless a user enters the proper password.
Paper handling is extremely flexible, with a standard paper capacity that includes two 550-sheet trays and a 100-sheet bypass tray. Upgrade options can expand the paper capacity to a maximum of 4,400 sheets, and other upgrade options include a finisher, with options for stapling and sorting as well.
Expensive toners are the unit's main drawback, as the OEM versions of Savin SP C831DN toner cartridges are pricey. Instead, users should consider using compatible Savin SP C831DN toner, as it costs significantly less. Savin SP C831DN toner cartridges have large yields, however, at around 27,000 pages for each color and 23,500 pages for black.
Overall, the SP C831DN is an impressive printer with fast speeds and excellent upgrade options. It is too expensive for smaller offices, but the mid-sized office that seeks reliable printing without unnecessary extra functions will find it to be a great value, especially with its affordable operating costs.
