A multifunctional is really an all-in-one device; it is both a scanner and a printer, and often even has a fax function. So effectively it\'s a copier, but one that has the scanning and printing functions available separately. All this is a great advantage when you have limited office space. Moreover, you will be able to work faster and more efficiently by using the device\'s convenient special functions.

Professional quality laser printing and copying
Having all of your office needs in one convenient unit doesn't mean compromising on quality. The LaserBase MF5730 prints at 1200 x 600 dpi (enhanced) and produces perfect results, every time. Digital copying provides a full range of copying options: two documents can be copied onto a single sheet, and with flatbed copying, different sized documents can be easily reproduced onto A4.

High speed, big capacity
The LaserBase MF5730 prints at a super quick 20 pages per minute, and you can start printing straight away as there is virtually no warm-up time with Canon's On-Demand Fixing technology. The 50 page Auto Document Feeder means there's no need to split up large documents for copying and scanning. With the 250 sheet paper cassette capacity, you'll spend less time tending to paper refills. The LaserBase MF5730 also comes with a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface to your computer which speeds up data transfer.

Advanced scanning technology
The scanner in the LaserBase MF5730 uses CCD technology to produce high resolution 1200 x 2400 dpi images, and offers all the features you would expect, including scanning to PDF or email and increased scanning depth of 48/24 bits for greater colour accuracy. Documents or photos can be scanned perfectly and with maximum detail.

All-In-One with easy installation
When you replace the cartridge in the LaserBase MF5730, you are essentially making your machine as good as new. All of the device's essential parts are contained in the toner cartridge, which can be quickly and easily removed, so the need for machine servicing is essentially eliminated. Setting up the LaserBase MF5730 is a breeze with a single software installation for all three functions – which means you can print scan and copy from one unit, with only one connecting cable.

You also have the option to connect the LaserBase MF5730 to your computer network. Simple installation is available through an AXIS 1650 Print Server.
