Relatively inexpensive purchase price, Low claimed cost per page
If you need a laser-class printer for printing out colour at up to A3 size, the OKI C831n should be on your shortlist. It has good speed, a low sticker price, and low running costs, especially for colour printing.
Its colour output quality isn't up to that of the similarly low-priced Xerox Phaser 7100/N, but it should be enough for many businesses. And its output quality isn't in the same league as the Xerox Phaser 7500/N, but then again, neither is its price.
Good speed, paper capacity, and features
The Xerox Phaser 6700DN is a solidly built, large-workgroup printer with the ability to increase capacity with your needs. It would be nice if the colour required less tweaking and the warranty lasted longer, but it's fast and produces excellent business documents. Among similarly priced competitors, theDell 5130cdn and Lexmark c792de are both faster and somewhat better equipped, but the Lexmark has pricier toner.
Very high print speed.
If we hadn't recently looked at theSamsung ML-6510ND, we would have been more impressed with the Xerox Phaser 6510V/ND. As it is, although the Xerox printer is marginally faster, it's more expensive to run and in virtually all other respects there's little to choose between them. Since the Samsung machine is around £420 (35 percent) cheaper, it's hard to find a reason for going the Xerox route.
We have reservations about the Phaser 4620V/DN's non-contracted running costs, and at this price we'd prefer if it came with more than a one-year warranty as standard, but otherwise it's hard to fault. It's as fast, robust and simple as a workgroup printer should be, yet it has the features and an upgrade path to keep pace with the fastest evolving and most demanding business.
