Xerox Phaser 3320 review

£234 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Xerox

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The Xerox Phaser 3320 is a no-nonsense business mono laser printer with good connectivity, high print speed and decent running costs.

Xerox’s latest entry-level mono laser printer, the Xerox Phaser 3320, is designed specifically to appeal to no-nonsense SMEs and home businesses that need only basic printing functions and no frills.

See: more printer reviews.

Styled in the company's usual two-tone blue and cream, the Xerox Phaser 3320's footprint is reassuringly small at just 366 x 368 x 257mm and it's no effort to move around with an unboxed weight of 9.95kg.

Although it's clearly a compact model, the structure of the Xerox Phaser 3320 feels robust and solid with no flimsy elements.

The main purpose of this Xerox Phaser 3320 unit is to be a rapid print machine, so as you'd expect all controls are paired down to a minimum. A two-line text LCD linked to a control dial handles system setup, layout and paper requirements and the printer slips into Sleep mode soon after you stop using it.

Paper capacity on the Xerox Phaser 3320 is substantial, with 250 sheets in the base tray and a further 50 in the drop-down Bypass tray at the front. 

If your print volume needs are more substantial, then an additional 520-sheet paper tray can be attached to the bottom of the unit at an extra cost of £194.40. The 128MB memory can also be expanded by a further 256MB if you're willing to pay a hefty £208.

If you're limited in terms of where to position your printer, you'll be pleased to know the Xerox Phaser 3320 has built-in Wi-Fi alongside USB 2.0 and ethernet connections. 

So how well does the Xerox Phaser 3320's speed performance match up to its ‘up to 35ppm’ claims? The simple answer is pretty well, considering single side A4 pages emerge at an average rate of 33ppm and duplex copies at 16ppm.

The ink quality is also particularly high, with graphics especially managing to avoid the overly dark errors of several more expensive printers.

Two choices are available for the toner cartridge – either a 5000-page standard which will cost you 1.83p per page or the high capacity 11,000-page version which works out at an even more respectable 1.59p per page. These are attractive prices if running costs are important to your business.
