Considered much faster and efficient than most of the color laser printers available in the market these days, the Xerox Phaser 7500 with its heavy-duty design is completely able to tackle any tabloid-sized paper you can throw at it. It is also known to be a supersized variety in its class – and that includes the price tag of course. But you really do not have to wince away looking at the price; its wonders in handling tabloid-sized and banner-sized paper color printouts is a marvel on its own. This Xerox Phaser 7500 Color Laser Printer Review will tell you all the good news you wanted to know.
The Phaser 7500 by Xerox fares well on performance tests that people can throw at it. It is capable of printing plain-text messages at a powerful rate of 28.1 pages per minute, and its color page capability can accomplish as fast as 5.1 pages per minute. It may be a bit short of Xerox’s great promise of accomplishing 35 pages per minute, but what’s great is that it still outperforms other color laser printers in the market these days. Just think of the tabloid-size pages that are twice as big as the standard letter-size prints and you’ll get the picture. Printing using the material even takes longer to print.
Overall, the print quality came out realistic and attractive, except on the occasional flesh tones of course – it tends to strike out an orange cast. This heavy-duty unit is perfectly able to take on paper whichever you would want it. The 500-sheet input tray can accommodate an 11.7 by 17-inch paper. The optional 500-sheet or 1500-sheet feeders on the other hand can take 13 by 18-inch print media. The machine’s 100-sheet multi-purpose tray is well able to accommodate even the 12.6 by 47.2-inch banner-sized print media. The duplexing feature is also considered a standard.
Another thing that attracts users to the Xerox Phaser 7500 printer is the control panel’s ability to inform you in real time of the paper settings whenever you open up a tray. With other printers, this can be accomplished from the printer driver, and that is considered less intrusive.
When getting into the control panel it must be noted that it has a simple design with its six-line monochrome LCD. The toner cartridges are also positioned efficiently; the colors are clearly visible inside the cartridges. The slots are even keyed with its assigned colors. It’s also worth noting that the accompanying user guide, which is PDF-based is generally comprehensive. A paper-based Quick Guide attached to the machine’s side comes along with the purchase. What’s odd is that the Quick Guide does not cover some basic tasks, like clearing the jams and replacing the consumables.
The Phaser 7500’s obvious huge toner cartridges are surprisingly cheap with the per page considerations. The black cartridge, fully capable of printing up to 19,800 single size pages costs only $330. The standard cyan, yellow and magenta cartridges, with their 9,600-page capacity will only cost you $315. High-yield colors, which cost $480 can last up to 17,800 pages.
