This printer replaced a Xante Accelawriter 4G. As good or better for less money. Xerox service also a plus, as are the multiple trays.
We purchased this printer for several needs, one of which is stapling. With the finisher, it staples wonderfully and eliminated our need to hand staple. Printing is efficient and, of course, double sided printing saves paper.
Worst aspect of this printer is you are unable to control duplex image backup. The software/firmware is not good but it is PS, fast, 11x17, 1200dpi and cheap to run.
We replaced some older machines that kept locking up. These are great machines that handle an heavy workload.
We have had this printer for a long time and it continues to produce good copies.
Duplexing works well on this machine, but only if you use a high quality paper. You can't get away with the 20 lb copy paper, especially not if it's recycled. On my machine the duplexer tends to jam after two or three pages. This machine does a great job on cardstock, and can easily accept a higher weight sheet through the multi-purpose tray. Use the real Xerox toner cartridges, or you won't get adhesion on letterhead, bond, or cardstock.
