by erin on June 8, 2011

The Xerox Phaser 6280 printer is a workgroup machine that uses laser technology. It may be hooked up to a network of computers, either wired or wirelessly. It’s a fast performer that enables you to meet your demands on time. With a variety of print and productivity features found within, this machine is flexible enough to do a variety of your printing requirements.

Speedy Processor

Within it is a speedy 400MHz processor. It’s fast enough to yield as many as 31 monochrome pages and 26 color pages every minute. It’s important for a printer to be able to eject the first page as quickly as possible as time is gold, most especially in the business world. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for a long time because the first page is out in a matter of 10 seconds.

Task Handling

Handling complex tasks and documents is the standard 256MB memory, although this may be expanded to as high as 1.28GB to catch up with your changing needs. An optional hard drive of up to 40GB may be plugged into it for additional storage. In order to come up with crisp and readable text with clean images, it uses a resolution of 600 x 600 x 4 dpi (dots per inch). Such is enough to produce professional-looking documents.

Media Capacity

Standard media handling capacity amounts to 400 sheets, thanks to the 150-sheet multipurpose tray and another 250-sheet paper tray. But with the attachment of an optional 550-sheet tray, the total media handling capacity can reach up to 950 sheets. Due to its sturdy construction, the manufacturer has set the monthly duty cycle to a total of 70000 pages.

Custom Sizes

Compatible media sizes include letter, legal, executive, monarch, US folio, A4, A5, B5 JIS and C5 envelope. It can also handle custom sizes from 3 inches x 5 inches to 8.5 inches x 14 inches. Media types it can work on are extensive. Such include bond paper, plain paper, letterhead, recycled, glossy, transparencies, card stock, envelopes and hole punched.

Uniform Particles

Thanks to the Xerox EA-HG toner, each and every print ends up clear and well-detailed. This breed of toner is made up of smaller and uniform particles compared to a traditional toner used by other laser machines. When the color cartridges run out, your printing task shouldn’t be brought to a standstill. That’s because there’s the Run Black feature that allows you to continue printing in monochrome.

Productivity Features

As mentioned earlier, there are numerous printing and productivity features gracing this office equipment. It’s capable of printing banners, booklets, posters, overlays, N-ups, and even documents found in a USB device plugged into the machine. Productivity is enhanced with capabilities such as auto center, auto fit, collation, auto tray switching and many others. Printer languages available are Adobe PostScript 3, PCL 5e and PCL 6.

Connectivity Options

The Xerox Phaser 6280 printer comes with connectivity options such as USB 2.0, IPv6 and Ethernet 10/100BaseTX. Also, an optional wireless IEEE802.11a/b/g may be purchased and attached to it to keep your workplace clutter-free. It has a form factor measuring 15.7 inches x 19.3 inches x 18.6 inches (width x depth x height). This laser machine complies with Energy Star so you can keep monthly utility bills down with toner cartridge.
