Xerox WorkCentre PE120i


The Xerox WorkCentre PE120i is a good choice if you don't print many photos, and a better choice if you connect directly.

Excellent text quality. 50-sheet automatic document feeder. Functions as standalone copier and fax machine. Includes Ethernet connection.

Can't scan or fax over a network, although it can scan to and fax from a directly connected PC. Slow performance for files with photos.

Auto document feeder (ADF) doesn't work, never has and they never even tried to fix it. Power save feature causes problems and slow printing. Can't print double sided pages unless you manually turn them over. Scanning to PC is slow; scanning to Mac is...

This is my first time writing a review on any product because consumers need to know NOT to buy this copier. My two biggest complaints are as follows: 1. The copier stays in energy saver mode all the time so every time you want to make a copy, you have...
