Financial Express; Small size, fast printing


Printing can be beautiful and this printer means business for your desktop. Graced with a white body, the Xerox Phaser 6000 printer has its control panel on the top with LED indicators. For connectivity, it has USB 2.0 and a power connector. It has four colour cartridges along with a black cartridge. The non black cartridges are expensive and cost R2,000 each. The printer uses the HiQ LED engine printing technology, which is more energy efficient, when compared to a laser printer. This is because LED printers have no moving parts, like lasers and mirrors that are used in conventional laser technology-based printers.

Xerox Phaser 6000 prints 12 pages per minute in black/ white and 10 pages per minute in other colours, that too at a resolution of 1200 x 2400 dots per inch (dpi). The internal processor featured has a speed of 192 MHz and memory capacity of 64 MB. The input tray can hold upto 150 sheets. The print quality is very impressive and while printing the device makes less noise.

However, lack of wireless and networking like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth in the printer can be disappointing. Yet, if you want a printer that is quieter, claims to be energy efficient and prints in high quality, this is the printer for you.

In a nutshell, this printer provides real-world print productivity and a host of built-in features. It gets your jobs out quickly, with print speeds as fast as 10 parts per million (ppm) for colour and 12 ppm for black-and-white. Last but not the least, a 192 MHz processor and 64 MB standard memory handle your daily workload—even pages with graphics, photos and charts.
