Lanier LD235 Printer Review
The Lanier LD235 laser copier can be configured with the network printing and scanning features a busy office needs, making it a full multifunction device. Faxing is optional, but the network scanning features offer a cost-saving alternative, eliminating the need for so much Lanier LD235 printer toner, and duplexing can help conserve paper as well.
The unit can reach a maximum speed of up to 35 pages per minute when printing or copying, which is a good fit for mid-volume offices where speed isn't the biggest concern. Warm-up time is around 15 seconds, with a first page out time of 4.3 seconds, so jobs will begin printing quickly, with less waiting.
As with most office machines, the standard input paper capacity of 1,150 sheets can be upgraded to a maximum of 3,550 sheets, equipping it to handle larger volumes of output. Other upgrade options include finishing units for stacking, stapling, booklets, and more.
The printer/scanner option comes with a 40 GB hard drive for storing digital documents, which can then be made available to users on the network, or printed right from the control panel. Users can even send scans directly to any email address, including their own, which can basically replace faxing as a higher-quality alternative, while also cutting down on the need for replacement toners.
Savings on Lanier LD235 toner is easily the most attractive aspect of the device. Each Lanier LD235 toner cartridge will last for as many as 30,000 pages, and the replacement cost for Lanier LD235 toner cartridges is so low it is surprising.
Overall, the mid-volume office will benefit from the cost savings and speed of the Lanier LD235. Its scanning features can provide an excellent digital workflow for the modern office, and low running costs make it a great value.
