Available in multiple configurations, the Xerox WorkCentre 5225 is a laser copier that can also handle printing and scanning depending on the configuration. It can copy up to 25 pages per minute, and users can add optional extras like faxing capabilities or more paper capacity. Xerox 5225 printer toner supplies are expensive to replace, but they do have large yields, so the cost per page is satisfactory.
The base model can be configured with copying capabilities only, or with the addition of network printing. The 5225A model includes both features, as well as scanning capabilities. Faxing is an optional upgrade for either model. The starting paper capacity is 1,100 sheets, but upgrades can be added to expand it up to 5,100 sheets as needed. The 512 MB of memory cannot be expanded, however. A 75-sheet automatic document feeder allows for fast unattended scanning.
The unit includes a 40 GB hard drive, which is particularly useful for saving scanned documents, but can also be used to store files for printing. The scanning function also supports sharing files via email. Network support is built in, and the unit also includes a USB 2.0 port for those who may want to do a direct connection to a computer.
Replacement toners for the machine are expensive, but each WorkCentre 5225 toner cartridge is rated for an estimated yield of 30,000 pages. This means each Xerox 5225 toner cartridge can last a long time, even in a fairly busy environment. This also keeps the cost per page of WorkCentre 5225 toner low.
The 5225 is not the top of its class in speed or output quality, but it strikes a good balance of features and price. Optional upgrades can help it keep up with an expanding work environment, but buyers should be aware of the upfront price for Xerox 5225 toner supplies ahead of time.
