Xerox is a household name when it comes to copying. In fact, Xerox has become synonymous with copying. Today, Xerox equipment can do a whole lot more, especially with the Xerox Phaser 3200MFP multi-function monochrome laser printer. The Phaser 3200MFP can not only copy but also fax, print and scan documents. The Phaser 3200MFP by Xerox brings more efficiency to your office at a low price and is well suited for small businesses and home offices.
The Xerox Phaser 3200MFP weighs in at 10.8 kg and measures 38 cm high, 43.1 cm wide and 38 cm deep. It can print at speeds up to 24 pages per minute, helping you get more printing work done in a short period of time. It also has a maximum duty cycle of 10,000 pages per month, which is plenty for most small offices. The top of this printer includes a 30 sheet automatic document feeder (ADF) for scanning, copying or faxing documents in small batches. The main paper tray can hold 250 sheets, which can be in a range of paper sizes including A4, Legal, Executive and Folio. The high capacity Xerox 3200MFP cartridge is rated to print approximately 3,000 pages at 1,200 by 1,200 dpi resolution. There is also a control panel that provides access to the copying, scanning and fax functions. The Phaser 3200MFP comes in two varieties, the 3200MFP/B which has only USB connectivity, and the 3200MFP/N, which has both USB and Ethernet connectivity.
The Xerox Phaser 3200MFP prints clear text and graphics at relatively high speeds. This is also a highly versatile unit, supporting computers with the Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X operating systems. It is packed with a 300Mhz processor and 64 MB standard memory, which means it can handle large workloads easily. An interesting bonus feature of the Phaser 3200MFP is the “ID card copy" function, which can copy both sides of a card such as an insurance card or drivers license back to back on only one page.
The Xerox Phaser 3200MFP biggest drawback is its lack of colour. While this does save operating costs, since only a single Xerox Phaser 3200MFP toner cartridges is needed to function, it does mean that colour documents require a second printer. This may be a problem for some small offices. Another drawback is that neither the scanner nor the printer has duplexing ability, which is typically a big time saver for businesses.
