Xerox Phaser 7400N


It's hard to think of a $3,000 printer as inexpensive. But if you're talking about a color laser printer that can handle tabloid-size (and larger) output and crank it out faster than any printer on the market, then the Xerox Phaser 7400N ($3,000...

Fast performance. Low price for a tabloid color laser. Very good paper handling, with a 3,000-sheet maximum capacity, a finisher option, and banner-size output

Fast, crisp, concise, simple and inexpensive!


I run a print shop for churches. We do a LOT of color printing. 8.5x11 is "dead" in my industry, and everyone wants more than just 11x17, they want 11x17 full bleed. Most offices should, too. I'd even venture that most print designers who work from ...

Inexpensive toner, toner/drums separate, incredible color quality, fast warm-up, great paper handling

Very Good, Consistent Printer


Quality excellent, cost per print 10 cents.

Xerox is slow in updating the firmware.

Consumer review by:

One Month, zero successful print jobs


We selected this printer because it prints tabloid size.

The printer has not produced quality printable output. Now it doesn't even turn on properly.
