The Phaser 8400 is very fast and can save you time in the workspace. The first page of your document prints in less than six seconds. If you happen to be printing a larger document, the pages print as fast as 24 per minute. The PrintingScout and PhaserSMART tools can help you troubleshoot if anything needs your attention during printing. The CentreWare embedded Web server lets you control the printer from the desktop while the Usage Analysis tool lets you track its printing record.

This printer produces very high quality documents. It has automatic color correction, which adjusts print method to the content so that you do not get a discrepancy between text and photo quality. Photo mode has high color, rich image printing.
