Xerox Phaser 5550/DN Tabloid-size Black White Laser Printer

 

Excellent performance, high quality output. However, setting up and using the printer is almost impossible using the inadequate supplied documentation. Even the CD-ROM doesn't have decent instructions. Fortunately Xerox offers excellent tech support.

This product is perfect for our offsize wall certificates.

 

We are happy with our Phaser 5550. The only drawback we have is that the certificates are slightly curled when they come out of the printer. This is mainly due to the fact that this model does not have a side rack. The certificates curl as they go...

Good printer, but needs hardened electronics and more durable duplexer.
