Gestetner MP 6001 Printer Review
With a great balance of fast performance and affordability, the Gestetner MP 6001 is a versatile multifunction copy machine that can be customized to a buyer's needs. The MP 6001SP configuration includes scanning and printing capabilities, and faxing is an option as well. Each model provides the same fast print and copy speeds of up to 60 pages per minute, and a first copy out time of 4.2 seconds. Both also use the same inexpensive Gestetner MP 6001 printer toner.
The MP 6001 includes a larger-than-average automatic document feeder that can hold up to 150 sheets, which is great for users who have to scan or copy stacks of documents on a regular basis. It can handle one or two-sided scanning, at a rate of 55 images per minute in simplex mode and up to 90 images per minute in duplex mode, even when scanning in full color.
When sending scanned documents, users can choose to connect to the office's LDAP address database to find an email address. Documents can then be sent as attachments for a very convenient solution that reduces the use of paper and Gestetner MP 6001 toner. A USB port and SD card slot are also available for portable storage.
Speaking of toners, the Gestetner MP 6001 toner cartridges have an impressive yield of around 43,000 pages, so they won't need to be replaced often, even in a busy environment. Combine the large page yield with the low price Gestetner MP 6001 toner cartridges, and the cost per page is only a fraction of a penny.
When it comes to security, the MP 6001 can encrypt the internal hard drive, and even overwrite the drive at regular intervals to ensure no sensitive data can be recovered. Sensitive documents can be password-protected as well.
For large office environments that need to keep up with a fast workflow, the MP 6001 is a great solution. Although it's not the fastest in its line, it offers a good compromise of performance and price that gives buyers more control.
