Xerox Phaser 6700 Color Printer – exceptional quality, fast print speeds

By Databazaar Blog

Xerox_Phaser_6700

Xerox has positioned the Phaser 6700 as the new benchmark for workgroup color printing. This dedicated laser color printer delivers superb color and image quality at fast speeds of up to 47 ppm (both Black and Color). Its 1.25 GHz processor and 1 GB system memory can easily handle a steady stream of complex print jobs. The Print Around feature keeps the print queue moving ahead of stalled jobs.

The 120,000-page monthly duty cycle means that this robust printer can handle heavy duty office printing. With a maximum input paper capacity of 2,900 sheets and high capacity toner cartridges you can print more, with fewer interruptions for replacing consumables. This printer also comes with an optional finisher that can handle 1000-sheet stacking and 50-sheet stapling.

Paper consumption is reduced with the standard duplexing feature (available in DN/DT/DX models) which enables printing on both sides of the paper. The EA toner fuses at a much lower temperature so you save on energy consumption as well as carbon emissions. Since the toner is also oil free, you get sharp and brilliant prints.

This printer works with all the popular operating systems and features standard Ethernet and USB 2.0 connectivity; wireless is optional. Security features include IP filtering, encryption and more to ensure that your sensitive documents are not compromised.

The 4.3” color touch screen interface is intuitive and even includes embedded help videos. The Color by Words feature enables intuitive color management. With support for PANTONE® Color calibrated solid-color simulations and Adobe® PostScript® device independent color, Xerox has ensured that your color documents and images have the exact color that you visualized.
