Every office needs a printer, and it will be used daily in most. Although it doesn’t seem like a big decision, it is an important one. The Xerox Phaser 8400 Printer is a high quality, low price option that uses solid Xerox Phaser ink sticks for color printing. It is efficient and a good model to consider.
The Phaser 8400 is very fast and can save you time in the workspace. The first page of your document prints in less than six seconds. If you happen to be printing a larger document, the pages print as fast as 24 per minute. The PrintingScout and PhaserSMART tools can help you troubleshoot if anything needs your attention during printing. The CentreWare embedded Web server lets you control the printer from the desktop while the Usage Analysis tool lets you track its printing record.
The quality of documents is also important in printer purchasing. This printer produces high color, rich images that are particularly bright when you use its photo mode. The automatic color correction makes sure your document has an even quality to its printing, even when you have images and text on the same page.
It uses Solid ink toner cartridges technology. It applies a microscopic layer of heated silicone oil to the page at a single pass. This method is environmentally friendly and low-waste. It provides saturated and consistent color on a variety of paper types.
The Xerox Phaser should last a long time. It can produce as many as 85000 pages per month. When purchased new, it has a warranty for a full year. Also, it comes with the Xerox Total Satisfaction Guarantee.
Money-saving is part of the appeal of this particular line. It is particularly low price for its type, twice as fast as its cheaper rival while of higher quality than many more-expensive options. Printing with this machine will be a lot cheaper than using a printing company. This model can also do fast color, which uses less ink but also maintains the integrity of your images.
There are many tools that simplify your printing projects when you use the Phaser model. It has the typical auto fit to page size tool, and can print up to 16 pages on one sheet. Documents can be collated, double-sided, watermarked, or booklet printed. Two interesting tools are the cover sheet option, which allows you to use a different paper tray for page one of your document, and the separate sheet option, which puts a sheet between each document to make separating them significantly easier.
This is a fast printer with decent specs. The Phaser 8400 has 20 GB hard disk storage, 500 MHz PowerPC processor, Adobe PostScript 3, and 512 MB of memory. The printer can also copy and scan. Although it is limited by its paper size (max size is legal), it can handle many paper types. Also, this model has the option of connecting to a network.
Although the Phaser 8400 is no longer available new from Xerox, there are options for purchase. Consider the newer version of this printer line, the Phaser 8560, which also comes equipped with the high-quality Xerox Phaser 8400 toners. You can also consider software from Xerox, which should be compatible with this printer.
