Xerox Phaser 4500 Laser 35PPM 1200x1200dpi 64mb Enet USB 110v

 

At $1200, the Xerox Phaser 4500N will appeal most to large workgroups that run through a lot of paper.

Prints text and graphics swiftly ; Economical to run

Bottom edges of text often looked fuzzy

Network administrators will love the included set of printer management utilities, with features such as printer configuration and usage analysis. An embedded Web server lets you check the printer's status from your desktop browser. You can even set...

Xerox Phaser 4500N

 

This corporate laser is easy to use and has plenty of paper-handling options, but its print quality is mediocre.

Though the Xerox Phaser 4500N installs easily, is economical to run, and prints text and graphics swiftly, its mediocre print quality undercuts its usefulness.

Xerox Phaser 4500B

 

Conversation powered by Livefyre

Ample paper supply; fast monochrome text and graphics printing.

Hard drive and Ethernet connectivity optional; high-contrast printing breaks up small fonts.

The Xerox Phaser 4500B is a fast and capable printer that is perfect for a small business with plans to grow.

Consumer review by:

"Excellent, durable printer...with a few flaws"

 

This is an excellent high-capacity printer. It prints very rapidly on normal weight paper; around 24 lbs or so. But if you use a lot of heavier card stock in the neighborhood of 110 lbs, expect it to take a siesta after printing every 50 sheets. This...

inexpensive to run, does high capacity output on heavy stock without flinching

much slower than advertised on high-volume printing

We Print about 80-100 pages/day with no problems

 

My previous purchase of generic toner cartridge had a short life and bad quality printing. To the contrary, I am satisfied with the same product bought from databazaar.

Consumer review by:

A Workhorse

 

there is a new model out there that is even faster that this I think it went from 36ppm to 50ppm and its costs just as much. I keep these because the new one uses different toner and that would mean more $$$ would have to be spent in keeping separate...

Great machine for the money. We have 5 of these guys currently on the floor and some with 200-300K after little more than a year and no problems to report. We just load paper and toner and they keep on printing. Network connectivity lets you share the...
