ROCHESTER, N.Y.--Jan. 7, 2005-- Xerox Corporation closed 2004 by winning seven industry awards from Better Buys for Business and Buyers Laboratory Inc., two independent research organizations.

Xerox also received three "Pick of the Year" awards from BLI for the Phaser 7750GX color laser printer, the Phaser 4500DX laser printer, and the WorkCentre M20i desktop multifunction device.
