Guide Review - Xerox Phaser 3250 Laser Printer
What there is to say is this: It's fast--amazingly so--and the print quality is excellent. If crisp and sharp text is what you're after, then you're going to love this printer. And boy is it fast! Granted, the first page takes a bit of time--around 8 or 9 seconds--but after that, you're off to the races. After that first page came out, the next five took only another eight seconds total. And using the built-in duplexer doesn't add a lot of time to the process.
There's a tab on the back of the printer where an Ethernet cable fits, and I mistakenly popped it off thinking I could network the printer. In fact this model, the 3250/D, can't be networked; a slightly different model, the 3250/DN, can be. It costs about $100 more.
