What is a typical price range for a multifunction printer?

Everything you need to consider before buying or renting a photocopier or a printer
Answer

Multifunction printer priceMultifunction printers (MFPs) typically include printing, copying, scanning, email and fax capabilities in one machine and can offer a practical and cost-effective solution for businesses of all sizes.

 

In the UK, multifunction printer prices can start at under £100 for a basic MFP for small businesses, rising to £2,000-4,000 (and upwards) for the best multifunction printers, capable of large print volumes and state-of-the-art document management. However, there are many very capable multifunction printers for small businesses in the £300-£600 price bracket which will meet a lot of printing needs. Leasing options start from around £30 a month and will rise depending on the machine specifications and whether consumables and service are included.

 

It’s possible to compare multifunction printer prices by keeping in mind the most common objective discriminating factors in performance, like:

-        The size of the printer,

 

-        Paper capacity,

 

-        Colour or black-and-white only printing,

 

-        Printing speeds (under or over 30 pages per minute),

 

-        Printing technology (laser should be more expensive),

 

-        Connectivity (several wireless connections, wired network, local USB only...),

 

-        User-friendly controls,

 

-        Multitasking abilities,

 

-        Dual-way communication abilities,

 

-        Software bundle,

 

-        Network security protocols,

 

-        Total cost of ownership, including maintenance and consumables.
