Xerox 3300MFP Printer Review
A true all-in-one is a machine that prints, scans, copies and faxes, and the Xerox Phaser 3300 laser multifunction printer can handle all of these tasks. Even with all of its functions, this device is capable of producing up to 30 pages per minute. Fueled by the 300 MHz processor, the 3300 takes less than 9 seconds to print the first page and only about 20-25 seconds to warm up. The copy and scan functions work at about the same speed as the printer, and the fax machine has a 33.6 Kbps transmission speed allowing faxes to be received in just a few seconds.
This is a monochrome laser printer, meaning it only uses black printer toner. Because there is only one Xerox 3300 toner cartridge used, the cost of maintenance over the life of the machine will not be too much of a burden on the budget. In fact, high-capacity toners that yield 8,000 pages, rather than the standard 4,000 pages, are available to give users the opportunity to spend a bit more upfront for replacement Phaser 3300 toner cartridges but get a reduced cost per page.
The Xerox 3300 printer toner isn't the only upgradable feature. The built-in memory is 96 MB, which will be sufficient for average office volumes, but this can be expanded to 320 MB if volume increases. The paper capacity is 300 sheets is composed of a 250-sheet input tray and a 50-sheet bypass tray for different media types. This can be increased to 550 sheets with the addition of another 250-sheet tray.
The quality of documents can be adjusted based on the print mode, such as Toner Saver, which reduces the amount of Phaser 3300 toner that is used per page while also reducing the quality slightly. The maximum quality that can be reached is 600x600 dpi, which will make for sharp text documents and decent graphics.
The 3300 has a duty cycle of 25,000 prints per month and connects via USB or ethernet port. Networking and duplexing are built-in and security features are available to help protect confidentiality.
Overall, this monochrome laser all-in-one machine has the speed, quality and versatile functionality to benefit a medium or large office. Replacement Xerox 3300 toner is affordable, and many features are conveniently upgradable for future growth.
