Intec CS3600 colour Office printer review.
Review date: 19 February 2018
Todays review is of the Intec CS3600 printer. A colour Office printer from Intec.
We will go over some of the important details in this review and offer some comparisons to other printers on the market..
Before acquiring a printer through a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The CS3600 is a cheap, colour led device from Intec, offering good quality full colour output. It is a good performer providing quality prints with good speeds .
It's a robustly built office printer, targeted at medium volume workloads in a small studio or workgroup style setup. We think this printer is best suited for companies with low-ish print requirements
With black and white print speeds of up to fifty pages per minute, colour print speeds up to fifty pages per minute and the ability to print on pages up to A3 in size , this printer is an economical workhorse.
As this is a single-function 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 Intec CS3600 sports a touch screen panel for easily printing and adjusting print settings and performing other useful tasks.
The CS3600 provides acceptable full colour printing, that's more than suitable for general business uses, 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 50 pages per minute and A3 speeds of up to 28 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 8 seconds meaning individual print jobs are completed efficiently.
With a 1200MHz processor and 2,000 Mb of RAM, this printer can handle large images and other files with quickly and efficiently.
Extra print features for this device include: Barcodes, Envelope printing and Printing on transparent material
The CS3600 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.
This printer can communicate over TCP-IP, HTTP/HTTPS and Netware

We review all printers in comparison with each other - meaning that 1 star indicates that a printer is in the bottom 20% for that attribute or function. When shopping for a printer, you should keep the star rating in mind and compare it to the prices being offered - low rated printers, at cheap prices can be the perfect choice. Conversely, when thinking of purchasing an expensive printer - ensure that it is highly rated, or it is simply not worth paying extra for.
