Xerox 245 Printer Review
For serious office work, a model like the Xerox WorkCentre Pro 245 is essential. This multifunction laser printer combines printing, scanning, copying, and email into a single device that has the speed and capacity to keep up with a fast-paced office. It can output up to 45 pages per minute, and the low cost of Xerox 245 printer toner can save an office money over time.
The design of the 245 is fairly large and basic, but has a splash of color near the control panel to make it a bit more visually appealing. Both USB and ethernet ports are provided, with the latter being the most likely choice for a large office. Once connected to the network, users can access shared folders right from the control panel, then print, email, or save them to another location. The control panel also offers easy monitoring of user accounts and the level of WorkCentre Pro 245 toner remaining.
Scanning can reach speeds of up to 55 images per minute, and the 75-sheet automatic document feeder supports duplex scanning for two-sided originals. This gives users the tools to convert large numbers of paper documents to digital formats quickly. Printing resolutions can reach up to 1200 dpi when using Xerox 245 toner, providing sharp text and graphics.
The front panel opens up to reveal the Xerox 245 toner cartridge, and swapping toners is quick and simple. Not only are the WorkCentre Pro 245 toner cartridges some of the most affordable in its class, but they have large capacities, which means an extremely low cost per page of only a fraction of a cent.
Buyers who are tempted to purchase one of the less-capable WorkCentre models and upgrade certain features should consider the WorkCentre Pro 245. It includes most of these features in its standard configuration, and will likely be less expensive overall.
