Researching the Best Multifunction Copier for your Business

Konica Minolta MFP

With so many brands and models available, choosing the best multifunction printer (MFP) can be a daunting task.   Multifunction printers are an ideal asset for many types of businesses since this type of machine offers an all-in-one printer, fax machine, scanner and copier in a single device. This eliminates equipment clutter in the office and gives your business a more professional look and feel.

Copiers Refurbished carries a full line of multifunction copiers by several popular brands, including Konica Minolta and Kyocera Mita. When you are ready to purchase or lease an MFP for your business, our friendly staff will work with you to determine which machine is best for your budget and productivity. Here are a few things to consider ahead of time when researching MFP’s:

Speed.  In general terms, the more you tend to spend on your multifunction printer, the faster print speeds you will get. This is typical of most printers and has been for some time. This goes double if color printing is involved and fast color printers can get very pricey.

DPI. Before you buy a multifunction printer, check out what its DPI rating is. DPI stands for dots per inch. Having a higher DPI allows you to have higher quality images when you print. It’s kind of the same as a television’s resolution. The higher the resolution, the better the picture quality.

Memory. The more memory you need means the more money you are going to have to spend. It’s just like speed, if you want the best, then you are going to have to pay for the best. Home offices should shoot for a device that has around 8MB of memory with more traditional offices aiming for 16MB. This isn’t a live or die guideline though. Figure out your printing needs ahead of time to determine your memory needs.

Test. The best thing you can do is test your multifunction printer before you buy it. If you start it up and you hate then interface, then you probably are not going to love it in the future. However, don’t necessarily rule out a device that has complex functions, you may learn to use them well and find that they are extremely useful.
