Gestetner MP 8000 Printer Review
The Gestetner MP 8000 is a multifunction laser copier, and can be configured as a printer, fax machine, and scanner. It is designed for high-volume office environments that require a fast working pace and solid productivity. It can print and copy at up to 80 pages per minute, with a first page out time of only 3.5 seconds, and users won't spend a lot to replace Gestetner MP 8000 printer toner.
The MP 8000 base model includes only copying functionality, but most buyers will likely choose the MP 8000SP with its built-in scanning, printing, and faxing features. The machine is quite large, measuring 45.9x27.2x31.1 inches, and it weighs a very hefty 454 pounds. This extra size is justified, however, with a large variety of features and a standard input paper capacity of 4,300 sheets. The paper capacity can be further upgraded to a total maximum of 8,300 sheets.
The unit includes 512 MB of memory, so that it can easily manage multi-user environments, and an ethernet port provides for easy setup and sharing. An 80 GB hard drive is included, and gives users a lot of storage for frequently-used documents. The control panel provides easy access to these stored documents, and allows users to print out copies without the need for a computer.
When it is time for replacement toners, users will be pleased with the low price of Gestetner MP 8000 toner cartridges, as well as their large capacities. With a large yield of around 43,000 pages, a single Gestetner MP 8000 toner cartridge can last a very long time before expiring.
For the large office that needs to get a handle on its document processing, the MP 8000 could be an excellent choice. The standard configuration provides the major capabilities an office will need, and it is still expandable for the future. Low-cost Gestetner MP 8000 toner will also keep it very affordable for the long term.
