The Xerox Phaser 3110 laser printer is designed for the home or small office user. Its affordable price and compact size make it an excellent choice for users on a budget, but slower than average speeds might be an issue for some users.
The Phaser 3110 can handle its own processing with its 66 mhz processor and 8 MB of RAM, though the memory can not be upgraded, so users who print graphics-heavy or large documents often may want to look elsewhere. The Xerox 3110 laser printer is very compact, with a small footprint, though it takes up a fair amount of vertical space, which will be a consideration for users in tight spaces.
Paper handling might be a little light for some users. The unit can hold only 150 sheets in its tray, though it does have a single sheet manual feeder for alternate media types. Paper output is only 100 sheets, so users won't be able to print an entire tray worth of pages without removing some pages from the output tray. The Phaser 3110 supports a wide range of paper sizes, including A4, A5, legal, executive, and folio. It supports multiple media types as well, including transparencies, card stock, envelopes, and labels.
Phaser 3110 toner cartridges have a capacity of 3,100 pages for each printer toner cartridge. The laser toner cartridge is easy to access and remove, and prices for Xerox 3110 toner cartridges are quite affordable, resulting in a low cost per page. Users can save costs by using the printer's toner save mode to reduce toner consumption.
Print speed is the only major disappointment. At 10 pages per minute, it lags behind its competition, though many users may deem it fast enough for their uses. Print quality is good, especially for text. Graphics quality is a bit below average.
Overall, the Xerox 3110 is a very compact and affordable machine that will function well in a home or small office. Slow speeds and small paper capacity may be problems for some buyers.
