This is a Tron-style tank of a machine, with plenty of capacity and a price to match. The 50-sheet ADF is duplex, so you can directly copy double-sided documents in one go. The control panel features a slightly insensitive, but usable, 109mm touchscreen, as well as a physical number pad for fax dialling. There's a 250-sheet paper tray and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray, and the machine has USB and Ethernet connectivity. I measured speeds of up to 25ppm and 14spm duplex, and saw a five-page copy in 20s. Text and greyscale graphics are fine for day-to-day use and running costs come out at a low 1.3p per page.

Another machine that can cope with being networked among several people and another one which has a duplex ADF for single-task copying. A conventionally laid out control panel includes a back-lit LCD panel and below this is a 250-sheet paper tray with a 50-sheet multipurpose pull-down, too. USB and Ethernet connections are provided, and the photoconductor drum is a lifetime-of-the-printer component, making maintenance simple. Speeds of up to 19ppm single-sided and 14spm duplex make this a little slower than some of its rivals here and a cost per page of 2.2p knock it back a little.
