Fast, efficient faxing

This Super G3 fax transmits documents in as little as 3 seconds per page* to cut your communication costs down to a minimum. Faxes can be sent and received in the shortest time possible, freeing up the telephone line.

Worry-free faxing

If paper or toner run out, the 340-page* memory safely stores all incoming documents for printing out later. Lengthy documents can also be scanned before transmission to save time - and are then sent automatically from memory.

Quick, simple dialling

Dialling is quick and simple as 15 one-touch and 100 coded speed dials store all your regular numbers. A 2-line backlight display makes this fax extra easy to operate.

Speedy document feeding

With the 30-page Automatic Document Feeder, you can fax or copy lengthy documents smoothly in a single operation. Also save time on paper refilling thanks to the 150-sheet paper capacity.

Ultra High Quality

Our Ultra High Quality imaging technology ensures that all details come out clearly when sending documents containing diagrams, photos or fine text. Half-tone reproduction with 256 grey scales gives extra depth and clarity to images.

Fast printing and copying

Use this fax as a productive 14 pages per minute laser printer via the USB connection. With Quick First Print performance there’s zero warm-up time from sleep mode, so no waiting. You can also copy documents at 12 pages per minute.

All-in-One cartridge

Simply replace the All-in-One cartridge containing toner, drum and all essential parts and your fax is almost as good as ‘new’. There's no mess, no hassle - just continuous high quality output.

Energy efficient

This energy efficient and environmentally friendly fax uses only 3 watts in sleep mode.
