In today’s busy office environment, having the right copier can mean the difference between being efficient and getting bogged down in the details of a project. If you’re looking for a fast photocopier with high image quality, the TASKalfa 3550ci is a good option. With this color copier, you can produce professional images in-house with a resolution of 600 x 600 dots per inch (dpi).
The toner produces 15,000 color images before running out of ink. The amount of color images you can create with this copier is good; however, other copiers in this price range can produce more. It comes with a variety of color modes, from auto and full to single, so you can modify your images depending on the client’s or your company’s needs.
This office copier has a great duty cycle of 175,000 images per month. This volume is higher than some other copiers in its class, which means you’ll be able to get more use out of it without the risk of the copy machine breaking down.
With a copy speed of 35 pages per minute this machine can get through big projects in no time. Plus, it only takes 25 seconds to warm up, so you won’t have to wait long before getting started on your work.
With a 7,150-sheet capacity, this copy machine can pack away a lot of paper, which means you won’t have to constantly re-load when multiple people in your company are using the machine. Your projects will always look original and professional because this copier is capable of printing on special paper sizes and it supports a variety of media.
It offers additional convenient features such as repeat and mirror image, page numbering and security watermark along with basic functions like print, scan and optional fax. However, it lacks some of the add-on special features that are found in many other copiers in its class.
The biggest downside of this copier is that it doesn’t include security features. This might not be that big of a deal if you have a home office, but for a small to midsize business, security features can be crucial. The company does give you the option of adding these features to the copier, however they’re an added cost.
