Copystar CS 1810

The Copystar CS-1810 is another quality copier that also prints from Copystar. It is a solid, no-nonsense workhorse machine that is designed to last a lifetime. With a solid design, thoughtful controls and decent paper handling, this device should be very popular.

With the CS-1810 copying and printing is of a very high quality, with accurate reproduction of all documents during our extensive testing. Text was especially strong, with clear defined edges and even toner spread on the larger points. The speed is also good with a rating of 18 pages per minute for monochrome text.

Images were true to the original and offered good grayscale interpretation of color images. The test document includes text, graphs, business images and photographs. It is designed to see precisely what a device is capable of.

On the top of the CS-1810 there is a 50 sheet multi-purpose tray and a 250 sheet paper tray. Connection is via parallel only, but there is an option to include a network port if you wish. We would suggest taking this option as it is much quicker and more flexible than parallel. Toners are simple to replace, and relatively inexpensive. Cartridges are good for 7000 sheets and cost around $25. They are accessed by a flap at the side and clip in to place.

Build quality seems solid, all drawers, flaps and the document feeder seem well built and shouldn’t fail any time soon. The footprint is modest at 20 inches wide, 20 inches deep and 18 inches high, weighing in at just under 60 pounds. It is classed as a desktop product, but only just.

The CS-1810 is a solid copier and printer designed for high demand environments. It is built to last, while producing professional looking business documents. Running costs should be modest with the well priced consumables, and the construction lends itself to a relatively low maintenance existence. Ideal suited to the new or small business user.
