Todays review is of the Avision AP510 printer. A black and white Office printer from Avision.
This is a comparative review, it has been reviewed in relation to other printers available, from the same manufacturer as well as other manufacturers. We strive to keep a similar arrangement and set of data points between all reviews. This is to give you a clear idea and overview of the differences between printers on the market.
Before purchasing any printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The AP510 is a black and white laser office printer from Avision, offering high quality black and white output. It is a good performer providing quality prints with decent speeds and lots of useful features
It's a well made device, aimed at medium volume workloads in a medium office or workgroup style setup. We think it is best suited for smallish offices with low - average print requirements
As this is not a multifunctional printer, it does not offer any additional functionality besides printing. If you need other abilities, such as scanning or faxing, you should look at multifunctional printers.
The Avision AP510 features a touch screen panel user interface and performing other useful tasks.
The AP510 has decent mono output, with a print resolution of 600 x 600 DPI. There is an enhanced resolution function that also enables you to print at an even higher quality - should the need arise - although the print speed is a fair bit slower.
Offering A4 print speeds of up to 51 pages per minute, you can be sure of efficient printing for large print jobs. Duplex printing function allows you to print on both sides of a page, saving you money and reducing the environmental impact. This printer also offers a time-to-first-page of 3.6 seconds meaning short and one-off print jobs are quick and easy to complete.
The AP510 comes ready to connect to a computer network. This allows it to be shared and utilised by multiple people on the same network. This printer comes with an ethernet port as standard.
