Xerox Phaser 3 in 1 Color Laser Printer

Printing, scanning and copying. Not the most thrilling things you can do behind a computer, but sometimes they just have to be done. Students, freelancers and small companies know all about this. Thesis’s and researches that need to printed, invoices that need to be scanned and transcripts that really should be copied: important things that just need to be done. Because those things are so important, you have to make sure you work with only the best material. It just so happens to be that this Xerox Phaser 3 in 1 Laser Color Printer is one of the best pieces of printing equipment out there. It churns out pages at a rate of 20 pages per minute. That’s so fast, you’d almost forget that thesis you’ve just printed took you the best part of a year to complete. Even still, you’d have to produce quite a hefty piece of work if you want to exhaust this printer: its load bay can hold up to 200 pages. This machine is not a lightweight and that’s only made clearer by its 35.000 page duty cycle. Large users like certain companies will make great use of this machine, though it’ll suit great in any studying room as well. Making a copy of your passport can be done within the blink of an eye. The built-in scanner allows you to digitize old pictures or other important documents quickly. With this printer, it’s not just what it does that makes it so good, it’s the way it does it. That’s what makes this Xerox a real power printer. The Xerox Phaser cannot be missed at any office or busy studying room. Don’t let your success depend on bad equipment, but trust on this Xerox Phaser 3 in 1 Laser Color Printer!

Hey Guys

Can anyone fill me in on whether this is a good buy?? I am not that up on Printer spec’s etc.

My da is looking for a printer for his own business use, not much printing to be done but he cracks up over how slow the
inkjet is when printing out the odd large docs now and again. some of these docs would be product brochures so hopefully the
image printing would still be decent enough??? (no need for kodak like but good enough on standard paper)

Also how many ink cartridges does this take (would they cost an arm and a leg to replace)

Thanks in advance

Hi Tombull,

I was looking at this myself and it looks grand. The price is great. There are two things to consider though…

This model is USB only so no Ethernet to plug it directly into your network. It would have to connect to a PC for you to use it.
Secondly it doesn’t look like it supports ISIS drivers. This isn’t a big deal as 90% of scanning apps use TWAIN drivers anyway.

I’m looking for something like this but i need it to be stand alone so anyone can use it and i don’t have space for a PC for where it’s going.

Might suit your Dads needs though.

best of luck,

I’d get one – but two reviews suggest price per colour page is >15p sterling, expertreviews describing the total cost of ownership (including the original purchase price – not IBOOD’s discount!) as “… among the highest we’ve ever seen and mean that, in
financial terms, even light users will be better off with practically
any other printer on the market.”

So unless someone knows where you can get the toner for much cheaper (and google isn’t helping!), I have to count myself out :-(

Sorry, you can no longer comment on this topic.
