Panasonic KX-MC6260 Laser Printer

Now this may sound a bit surprising. Panasonic has never been known to be a player in the printer category but apparently they are trying to do so with this new laser printer offering. The Panasonic KX-MC6260 laser printer is a multi-function printer is designed to give highly professional results, so that small businesses can deliver decent color documents that look as good as something a larger competitor might come up with.

It also has a scan to email function, so if you want to save paper, not to mention postage costs, you can. The scanning software includes optical character recognition so you can more easily convert documents you scan into editable copy.

When you’re copying or faxing, there’s a 50-sheet feeder and with the optional duplex unit (more space required, mind) it will handle two-sided printing as well. Printing is reasonably speedy, at 20 pages a minute for color or black-and-white documents. Since the printer’s resolution is high (1200 x 1200 dots per inch), the results are detailed. The scanner’s resolution is lower, but still highly usable.

Carrying a price tag of £799, Panasonic seems to have added another option in the printer preference line. If you are not that particular about brands, this is a great printer you may want to consider getting.
