The output is good enough for any internal business need, including items like PowerPoint handouts. This is partly because it adds a built-in network connector and partly because it includes PostScript, which takes the work of processing the image off the computer and into the printer instead. Physical setup is generally typical for a low-end color laser. Graphics quality was a match for most color lasers, and better than many. Unlike with most, you have to open the front cover, so that it lies flat, remove a relatively heavy imaging unit, pull eight restraining ribbons, and reinsert the unit.

If it’s set for black and white, it will print at 16 ppm, but it will print everything, including color documents, in black and white. Even the less expensive Dell c was faster, at Phaserr may unsubscribe from the newsletters at any time.

David Stone is an award-winning freelance writer and computer industry consultant. As a point of reference, the somewhat more expensive Editors’ Xeox Xerox Phaser N was significantly faster, at Phaseer a confirmed generalist, with writing credits on subjects as varied as ape language experiments, politics, quantum physics, and an overview of a top company in the gaming industry. I’d expect most people will simply leave the printer in the default color mode instead of checking the setting each time.
Pros High-quality output, particularly for text. Depending on how much of a perfectionist you are, you may consider the output good enough for important clients or customers.

Photo speed was also slow for a color laser, averaging 1: The printer also ships with a Vista driver.

Physical setup is generally typical for a low-end color laser. Effective monochrome speed is below the rated speed. Even a heavily stylized font with 610 strokes that most printers have trouble printing at sizes below 20 points qualified as both easily readable and well formed at 12 points. As I set up the printer, however, opening various panels and examining the inside, I had a nagging feeling that I’d seen 1630 similar print engine from a different vendor.
The Xerox version costs significantly more, however. As it turned out, I had. The Best Printers of Removing the packing materials, however, takes a bit more work than with most lasers.
David is also an expert in imaging technologies including printers, moni The key similarity between the Dell and Xerox printers is the engine speed. I was a little uneasy about moving a heavy object over the exposed belt, but Xerox says xeroxx hard to damage the belt, which is under warranty in any case. But although that makes finding room for it somewhat easier, this printer is still a little too imposing for me to want it sitting on my desk.
Xerox’s network installation is worth special mention for being automated to the maximum extent possible.
Xerox Phaser /N Specs – CNET
I ran all my tests based on that assumption. In both cases, the engine rating is 16 pages per minute ppm for monochrome and 12 ppm for color. I saw some dithering in the form of relatively obvious graininess and some misregistration with small white gaps around blocks of colorbut the printer also handled lines better than most, printing thin lines that tend to disappear on many printers.
