The Gestetner 2712 grayscale copier is a multifunction office workhorse. Whilst not suitable for home use (unless you have a roomy home office and high printing needs) this copier is great for a busy office requiring the combined functions of a printer, scanner fax and copier.
With a resolution of up to 600 x 600dpi this great unit can provide clear and crisp copying and printing results with a very fine grayscale capability which leaves no banding, bleeding or blurring of images, texts, graphs or copies photographs. The copy ratio supported by the Gestetner 2712 is a reduction ability of up to 25% and an enlargement capability of up to 400%. This is standard of most copiers in the market of comparable make and economy.
The warm up time for the Gestetner 2712 is an impressive 15 seconds, so there is no need to wait around in the morning for the first print to come through. Once the machine is warmed up, then it gets going at up to twenty seven prints per minute in black and white and also grayscale. It has a maximum paper capacity of just over three thousand sheets, however this can be expanded with the optional automatic feeder. Through the multipurpose tray prints and copies can be made onto media such as transparencies, card paper, envelopes and labels.
On top of this, the Gestetner 2712 comes with duplex printing capabilities which means that gone are the days when you have to manually flip pages to get a print on both sides, which drastically cuts down time wastage, and will also be helping to cut printing costs and at the same time be more environmentally friendly.
Speaking of being kind on the environment, the Gestetner 2712 is also Energy Star compliant, so that you know its running usage is drastically lower than comparable machines without the Energy Star rating – this is another cost saving benefit of the Gestetner 2712.
The in-built fax is a standard facsimile facility, with a speed of three seconds per page transmission and a speed of up to 33.6kps. This printer is not really suitable for use on desktops as it weighs in at 165lbs! It will require its own corner in the office, however it is also not a monolith so can fit in almost anywhere with its 25 x 28 x 23 inch dimensions.
Overall this is a great machine for a busy office who require a reliable and cost efficient printer which is easy on toner usage and also on energy consumption.
