This
compact LaserJet is an all-in-one printer, copier, scanner
and
stand-alone fax.


It also supports network based printing and scanning. One
can connect
it with a PC through USB host, Ethernet and a USB. Its
start-up takes
a few seconds, though the same zest is not visible in its
performance.


It is a compact MFD, unlike the previous Lexmark and
Panasonic MFDs,
weighing just 13 kgs. It is a square block with a 250 sheets
paper
tray at the bottom. The interface includes a control panel
with
buttons for fax, scan and copy along with number keys for
fax and
menu panel. It is easy to use even though the monochrome
display is
unusually small and so preview is accessible only on PC.

Xerox
3220 is a network printer with auto-duplex. It churns out 26
print-outs in a minute at 1200x1200dpi with hardly any
distortion in
the text and image quality. The first page print takes 13
seconds,
while in duplex the same command takes 20 seconds. Windows 7
automatically detected the printer and updated the driver.
Scanned
file can be sent to email or saved on USB drive. At a max
resolution
of 4800x4800dpi, it scans a file in 28 sec. The copy speed
is 28ppm
with first copy-out taking 9 seconds. A duplex copy takes 27
seconds.
It is highly worthwhile because of double-side duplex,
printing,
network support, scanner, copier and even a fax at a an
economical
price of Rs 29,000 with a monthly yield of 50,000 pages.


Bottomline:
Xerox 3220 is offering everything that SMEs want, including
the smart
price. If only the speed was little better.
