Xerox Breaks Price, Quality Barriers With Color Printing with Phaser Printers

Press release from the issuing company

Low Price, Single Pass Technology Distinguish Two New Xerox Phaser Printers WILSONVILLE, Ore.--May 13, 2002--Xerox Corporation's newest office printers drive down the price of high-speed network color printing to less than $1,500. The Xerox Phaser 8200 solid ink color printer and the Xerox Phaser 6200 color laser printer are designed to fuel the migration to color in the office by offering cost and print quality advantages that make it practical to replace black-and-white printers. The Phaser 8200 and Phaser 6200 use single pass technology, which enables a printer to deposit all colors on paper in one pass, rather than the four passes required by traditional color laser printers. "With the debut of these new printers, the benefits of color printing are now an affordable reality for offices of every size," said Jim Miller, president, Xerox Office Printing Business. "The quality, performance and value of the Phaser 8200 and Phaser 6200 further support Xerox's leadership role in the widespread adoption of color." With a breakthrough price of $1,499, the Phaser 8200 has a powerful 300 MHz processor that allows for a first page out time of 9 seconds, as well as speeds of 16 pages per minute (ppm) in fast color mode and black-and-white. In addition, the Phaser 8200 provides trouble-free installation and printer management that gives users the simplicity they need. The Phaser 8200 offers office workgroups superior print quality on a variety of media types, including standard office paper, labels and business cards. This solid ink printer uses Phaser 8200 ColorStix Solid Ink with four unique shapes that eliminate loading mistakes. In addition, the Phaser 8200 provides fast, high-quality black-and-white printing at a cost of around a penny and a half per page, better than many competitive black-and-white laser printers. Starting at $1,999, the Phaser 6200 color laser printer helps offices produce better work by providing color print quality and performance at a competitive price. With a 500 MHz PowerPC processor and 16 ppm speed at full 2400 dpi resolution, the Phaser 6200 is ideal for office color. It has fewer consumables than the typical color laser printer, and the Phaser 6200 also has a simple paper path that makes printing more reliable. The Phaser 8200 and Phaser 6200 have a one-year, free on-site service warranty and the Xerox Total Satisfaction Guarantee. Xerox offers toll-free telephone support and online customer support. Both printers are available immediately worldwide through Xerox, resellers and dealers.
