With features like duplexing and Wi-Fi support, the Xerox WorkCentre 3225 goes above and beyond the typical multifunction laser printer for small office users. It can handle printing, scanning, copying, faxing, and even email sharing, and has output speeds of up to 29 pages per minute. Users on a tight budget may struggle with the cost of Xerox 3225 printer toner supplies, however.
Despite its small size, the 3225 is ready for fairly heavy volumes, with a maximum monthly duty cycle of 30,000 images. The machine weighs only 25.1 pounds, even when the WorkCentre 3225 toner is installed, and it measures 14.4x15.8x14.3 inches. In addition to a USB port, it includes an ethernet port and support for wireless networking. It also supports mobile printing from smartphones and tablets.
Media handling could be a problem for some busy offices, as it is not only limited, but not upgradable. The main paper tray holds 250 sheets, and a 1-sheet bypass slot is available for alternative media such as transparencies or envelopes. Offices with future expansion in mind may just have to look elsewhere. The automatic document feeder can hold up to 40 sheets, and is great for quick scanning of multi-page documents without the need for manual feeding.
Replacing toners is a quick and simple operation from the front access panel. The standard Xerox 3225 toner cartridge has an estimated yield of 1,500 pages. The larger high-capacity WorkCentre 3225 toner cartridges are rated for around 3,000 pages, so they have a lower cost per page.
With more than four major functions crammed into a compact machine, the Xerox 3225 is definitely impressive. It still offers great speed and sharp output quality, but lack of upgradability could be a concern, and Xerox 3225 toner is somewhat expensive to replace.
