The Xerox WorkCentre 7845 multifunction laser printer offers several upgrades from the lower models in its line, mostly speed improvements. Unfortunately, the extra cost may put it out of reach for smaller budgets. Nevertheless, it can provide up to 45 pages per minute in both color and black, and it offers faster scanning and more capacity, but still suffers from pricey Xerox 7845 printer toner.
Besides the faster output speeds, the 7845 also comes with a larger monthly duty cycle of 200,000 pages, so it can handle larger volumes. The first page out time is trimmed down to 6.4 seconds for black-and-white and 7.5 seconds for color as well, for a quicker response to a new task. Those who do a lot of copying and scanning will appreciate the improved automatic document feeder, which can scan duplex documents in a single pass, and also holds up to 130 sheets at a time. Using the email function to send documents can also save paper and WorkCentre 7845 toner, for those looking to cut costs.
The 7845 can handle paper up to tabloid size (11x17 inches), which offers a little more flexibility than the average color laser device, and it can be configured with several different options for very large paper capacities, including a 2,000-sheet feeder. A 160 GB hard drive is included for document storage, and files can be accessed quickly from the touchscreen interface, and users can save common workflows for quick one-touch functionality.
Xerox 7845 toner cartridges tend to be more expensive than the competition's supplies, which makes replacing toners a costly process. Even worse, the capacity of WorkCentre 7845 toner cartridges is limited to 15,000 pages for color and 26,000 pages for black.
The 7845 is an extremely full-featured device with fast speeds, a quick single-pass document feeder, and a number of improvements over the lower models in its line. Unfortunately, its high price and the high cost per page of Xerox 7845 toner make it tough to recommend for a cost-conscious office.
