Remote control for virtualized desktops

Review This printer has the lowest official retail price in the group by a good way and this feeds through to typical internet prices, where it can be had for around £139.

You might expect Xerox to have cut some corners to get to this price, but not a bit of it.

The tall white machine with dark blue highlights has a full two-line by 16-character backlit LCD display in its control panel and a 250-sheet paper tray with a multi-purpose slot, so it is as well equipped as any in the group.

It also comes with 10/100Mb/s Ethernet as standard, as well as USB, so can be linked straight into a network – wireless networking is an option.

Drivers are provided for Windows and Mac OS X, and a FujiXerox driver is said to work with some versions of Linux, though there appears to be no official support.

RH Editor's Choice

Print speeds are well up the group, though the Xerox can’t match the Lexmark or OKI. We recorded 10.5ppm in black and 8.1ppm in colour. Print quality is good overall: excellent in black and with good vibrant colours, though there’s some mis-registration of black over colour. Photo prints have a slight red cast, but this can be compensated for in software.

Cartridges yield 2000 pages of black print and 1000 pages of colour, and running the maths gives pages costs of 2.7p and 15.6p, respectively. The black cost is the lowest in the group, so Xerox isn’t compensating for the low purchase price by inflating the cost of consumables. ®
