Product Overview

Toshiba has recently introduced several new devices in its black-and-white MFP lineup, including the e-STUDIO2822 Series

This series consists of two devices: the e-STUDIO2822AM ($3,023) and e-STUDIO2822AF ($3,563). Both devices offer standard copying, printing and scanning, but the e-STUDIO2822AF also provides standard faxing.

Both machines copy and print at up to 28 ppm. Warm-up time is 18 seconds and the first copy time is less than 6.5 seconds. Memory is 512 MB, which isn’t expandable. The maximum duty cycle is 64,000 pages a month.

More details on these devices are found in our Features section below.

The e-STUDIO2822 Series is intended for a small-to-medium-sized business that want a compact MFP with ledger-sized paper support.

Features

Paper handling consists of a 250-sheet drawer and a 50-sheet bypass that adds up to a capacity of 300 sheets. There is an optional 50-sheet reversing automatic document feeder. Output is a face-down inner paper exit tray. Both devices accept up to 11″ x 17″ (ledger-size) paper. There are no finishing options.

The print function supports PCL and USB direct printing. USB and Ethernet connectivity are standard, and Wi-Fi is optional.

Toshiba’s e-BRIDGE Print & Capture Entry mobile app allows users with Apple iOS and Android devices to scan from and print to both devices.

The color scanning function can scan documents up to 22 ppm and includes scan-to-file, scan-to-email and scan-to-TWAIN. File formats supported include JPEG, TIFF (both single and multipage) and PDF (both single and multipage).

As mentioned above, faxing is standard on the e-STUDIO2822AF only. It includes both G3 and Super G3 compatibility as well as 6 MB of memory and JBIG compression.

About

Toshiba has been on the upswing in the office copier business, thanks to a steadily improving product line.

Although it may be among the smaller forces in copiers, the company as a whole is much larger than most of its competitors.

Toshiba handouts include Fortune corporate rankings indicating that its global revenues across all product lines are about the same as those of Canon, Ricoh and Xerox combined.

Product line: In recent years, Toshiba has been raising its copier profile both by re-energizing its U.S. marketing and by becoming more innovative with its products. Its line of e-STUDIO models is quite strong, and the company is starting to make an impact on the market.

Toshiba distribution: Toshiba brand sales are split nearly 50-50 between dealers and the company’s Toshiba Business Solutions division. In all, Toshiba has about 250 copier dealers, of which about 30% have Toshiba as its exclusive A3 MFP OEM partner.
