Recommendations Based on Office Size

For an office size of 0-10, Panasonic KX-MB 2061 would be a great option. Compared with KX-MB 2000 series, this machine adds an ADF that handles multiple A4 and legal pages. In addition, it acts as a standalone fax machine. A notable feature is the inclusion of an answering machine and a phone. You can add 5 more cordless phones. An MFC with 6 phones would be a great option for a small office. However, the printer can handle only one phone at a time. This mono laser MFP runs at 24 ppm. The print quality is decent. The maximum sheet capacity is 250, which is good for a small office. Automatic duplex is not available. The price is $250.

For an office size of 10-30, Panasonic DP-MB250 multi-function copier is a good choice. This color MFC comes with quick duplex feature where it prints at the same speed on both sides of the page. The print speed is 28 ppm. This rugged machine comes with a heavy-duty design for high-volume professional use. With a monthly duty cycle of 50,000 pages, 500-sheet capacity and 8100 toner yield, medium-size businesses can seamlessly work on large projects. The print quality is decent. The backlit LCD allows you to easily operate the machine even in the dark. This machine is priced at $450.

For an office size of 30+, Panasonic DP-MB350 is a good option. This MFC is an enhanced version of DP-MB250. It offers more power and efficiency. This MFC can print at 35 ppm. The text quality is very good. It has a maximum sheet capacity of 1,140 sheets. The Super G3 Fax transmits pages at a speed of 4 sec. The 3.6” color LCD display allows you to easily navigate through options. DP-MB350 provides more power and ruggedness to your office. This machine is priced at $857. MFCs from other brands offer a higher print speed and paper handling capacity. However, at this price, Dp-MB350 MFC is a good buy.

If your business involves routine print jobs, you don’t have to go for a high-end expensive printer. Panasonic multi-function printers are the best buy. Panasonic has picked out basic functionalities from a high-end machine and incorporated them into their low-cost compact multi-function printers to provide higher business productivity at cost-effective prices. At the same time, Panasonic printers optimize office footprint. With significant print speed, quality text and easy maintenance, Panasonic copiers provide more value for your money.

Affordable Printers from Panasonic

Panasonic KX-MB 1500 series has been a huge hit in the small business circles. Especially, the KX-MB 1520 monochrome multi-function printer provides basic print functionality at an unbeatable price. This printer offers 19 ppm print speed, 150-sheet tray, 10,000 monthly duty cycle and 600 dpi resolution. Photos and graphics are slightly low on quality. There is no automatic document feeder too. However, with a low price of $149, this printer offers a lot.

Another low-cost offers from Panasonic is the KX-MB 2000 series. Both KX-MB 2061 and KX-MB2062 come with almost similar features.

Leasing Panasonic Multi-function copiers

Other than paying more in the long run, leasing a multi-function copier provides various benefits. Firstly, you are not locked-in to a particular device. As and when your printing requirements change, you can add or upgrade the machine. For instance, businesses that use a monochrome multi-function might require a color copier to provide more vibrancy to the advertising material. While you can add a color multi-function copier to your inventory, you can upgrade the monochrome printer as well. Tax benefits and clear vision into future expenses are few other things to consider.

Panasonic multi-function copiers lease is available in two modes.

$1.00 Buy-out Lease

If you want to own the machine expecting a good life of the machine at the end of lease period, you can go for a $1.00 Buy-Out Lease. The amount of the machine is spread out into monthly installments where you can control the business cash flow. The payment would be higher when compared with the FMV lease, though.

  • For a 24-month $1.00 Buy-out Lease, the price is $51 per month for every $1000 spent. After this period, you own the machine for $1.00. There would be a small documentation fee.

  • For a 36-month $1.00 Buy-out Lease, the price is $34per month for every $1000 spent.

  • For a 48-month $1.00 Buy-out Lease, the price is $28 per month for every $1000 spent.

  • For a 60-month $1.00 Buy-out Lease, the price is $23 per month for every $1000 spent.

Note: Prices vary with the type of machine, consumables involved and service contract.

Fair Market Value (FMV) Lease

If you want to enjoy low monthly payments and plan to return the equipment at the end of the lease, FMV lease would be a good option. You can purchase the copier at the end of the lease period at a fair market value.

  • For a 24 month FMV lease, the normal price would be around $45 per month for every $1000 spent.

  • For a 36 month FMV lease, the normal price would be around $30 per month for every $1000 spent.

  • For a 48 month FMV lease, the normal price would be around $25 per month for every $1000 spent.

  • For a 60 month FMV lease, the normal price would be around $21 per month for every $1000 spent.

Note: Prices vary with the type of machine, consumables involved and service contract.

Service Contracts

While leasing multi-function copiers, it is important to consider the service and maintenance of the machine. If you want to add a service contract to the monochrome multi-function copier lease plan, estimate the total print requirement and multiply it with 1 cent. (Rates differ for other copier types).

For instance, adding 100,000 pages to your plan would cost you 100,000 x 0.01 = $1000 extra. When you go for a 36-month lease, you have to pay $30 extra per month.
