Lanier LD175 Printer Review
Converting paper documents to digital is often challenging enough, but managing your digital documents in a large office can be even tougher. The Lanier LD175 is a multifunction laser copier that aims to provide a solution. Labeled as the LD175SP when configured with printing and scanning functions, it can also act as a robust document server with 40 GB of storage capacity. Its high price tag is somewhat offset by savings on Lanier LD175 printer toner, and print and copy speeds are up to 75 pages per minute.
Having so much functionality in one device can be a blessing and a curse, as it might be difficult for users to understand and access all of the necessary features. The streamlined control panel of the LD175 helps reduce the clutter with dedicated buttons for the major modes, such as Copy, Document Server, Printer, and Scanner. When these modes are invoked, the menu changes to display only the information that is pertinent to that task.
High toner costs can be a thing of the past, since Lanier LD175 toner cartridges are very inexpensive compared to those of its competition. The Lanier LD175 toner cartridges are also long-lasting, as they can provide up to 43,000 pages before needing to be replaced. This can mean a significant savings for Lanier LD175 toner over the long run.
Getting documents into the LD175 is easy, with a large 100-sheet automatic document feeder that can scan up to 75 sides per minute, with one-pass duplexing. Documents are easily stored to the document server, available for access right away, or they can be sent to the user's computer on the network, or even emailed to one or more recipients, with support for the global address book on the network.
As more offices move away from paper documents and toward digital files, the Lanier LD175 can help bridge the gap. It still provides fast printing speeds and excellent copy features, but also acts as the digital hub for a large office.
