Xerox 3120 Printer Review
The Xerox Phaser 3120 is a monochrome laser printer designed for the home or personal user. With fast speeds and a compact design, it can easily handle the needs of any single user, as long as color printing is not a necessity.
For a personal laser printer, the Phaser 3120 is very fast. It is capable of printing at 17 pages per minute, and has a first page out time of only 13 seconds. This is quite remarkable for a personal laser, and it doesn't sacrifice print quality to do so. Print quality is excellent, utilizing a 600 dpi printing engine for sharpness and clarity. Graphics printing is a mixed bag, but text is sharp and clear, which will likely be the majority of most users' printing needs anyway.
The design of the Phaser 3120 is very compact, allowing it to fit on most desktops when necessary. It is also very quiet in operation, a necessary consideration when planning to put it on a desk near the user. Paper is loaded into the standard paper tray at the bottom of the front of the unit, which has a paper capacity of 250 sheets. For media types that won't fit into the standard tray, there is a single sheet manual slot located on the front of the printer as well.
The Phaser 3120 is a very economical choice as well, as it is fully Energy Star compliant, ensuring it will keep your energy costs low. The unit also features a Toner Save mode which reduces toner consumption when enabled. These two features combined can mean lower operating costs over the lifetime of the machine, and may bring the total cost of ownership lower than competing products, even when competing products have lower upfront prices.
Overall, the Xerox Phaser 3120 is a compact and economical choice for a personal laser printer. Its fast speed and excellent print quality are sure to impress.
