Savin C2525 Review
The Savin C2525 is a leading model in the Savin series of digital imaging systems. The C2525 series presents high-quality, crisp black and white or full colored documents. The printer will dish out color committed or monochrome material of all types and falls in a reasonable price range just within four figures.
With an oversized full color touch screen control panel, the Savin C2525 is exceptionally easy to use. Menus on the screen utilize large, easy to read and understand characters and images so even a novice can take full advantage of the devices stand alone copy abilities. Paper handling in large quantities also makes the device particularly appealing to the novice user, as paper replacement cycles will remain long thanks to 3,100 sheets of storage that come standard with the device.
Another time saving solution is the easy to replace toner cartridge system. With easy to swap out consumables, technicians are not required for toner and drum replacement as almost anyone can manage the process. To make things even more user friendly, Savin has gone out of their way to make the paper tray handles on this unit easy to grip.
Expandability options for the Savin C2525 include hole punching technology as well as a saddle stitcher and booklet finisher that can fold standard sheets of paper automatically. Document management is easy with the unit’s built in memory and dedicated managing options that include archiving, general managing, and sending/receiving files.
Security settings allow managers to adjust various security settings on the device to help keep important documents private. Multiple levels of security are attainable or, if desired, security settings can be shut off completely. The document server that is built in to the device can be accessed securely or not for storage and retrieval of data on site. This feature is extremely useful for storing commonly used data that needs to be printed constantly. Such things as common forms, company watermarked letterhead, etc. are perfect candidates.
Scanning abilities for the Savin C2525 top out in size at 11 x 17 inches, meaning that 18 inch paper, though uncommon, is unfortunately not compatible with the unit. Color scan speed maxed out at a comfortable 35 images per minute when utilizing the built in automatic document feeder and the unit’s black and white scan speed is even more impressive at 50 images per minute.
Scanning features available include a scan to email option with DLAP support, scan to folder abilities as well as a scan to URL function. Along with scan resolution, the device’s print resolution is quite high at 2400 x 600 dots per inch, placing at the higher end of the quality spectrum. Print speeds of 25 pages per minute are available for color as well as monochrome.
The Savin C2525 is exceptionally heavy at 265 pounds. The sheer weight of it makes it difficult to move around. With dimensions of 25.6 inches in width, 25.9 inches in depth, and 29.1 inches in height, the C2525 series is not ideal for small offices or home work spaces.
