Xerox M940 WorkCentre


These Units have been sold for very inexpensive prices lately. Xerox's secret? they are getting out of the ink jet business, so retailers have been selling at fire sale prices. I did a little checking and found that Xerox will continue to produce the...

I Need Something Easy!


Because my husband and I are virtually "computer-illiterate," we needed something that would be really simple to understand and use. We had been considering a HP multifunction machine (having used HP in the past with a Mac at work, I *knew* I really...

Is My Workcentre a Workhorse?


I wish I could say it is. I purchased the Xerox Workcentre M940 on sale for $110.00, originally $170.00 at Office Depot. I purchased it because I wanted a copier and the copier is located on top for easy access.

Nice Design, Makes brilliant copies

Ink runs out fast at $12.95 a cartridge, need 4 cartridges each time

Great deal all-in-one


I've been begging my wife to get a copier for home for a long time as my wife is a manic document copier and its a real hassle having to tote things around until you remember to copy them at work or Kinkos.

Cheap currently selling for $99

Expensive ink cartridges

A blessing to own!


WOW!!! That's all I've been able to say about the Xerox M940 since I bought one! The print quality is near-photo perfect; the setup and installation was a snap; USB!!!; the Pagis software package is worth the purchase price alone!

Print quality, bundled software, Xerox quality, ease of use, versatility

No stand-alone fax capability

Not for ADSL Users


I bought this because I needed a flat bed scanner and a color printer and this was by far the cheapest combo and has separate economical ink tanks too. I had no trouble with it out of the box, but later in the day when I wanted to get on the internet...
