New Xerox Multifunction Printers Bring High-End Printing Options to Small and Medium-Sized Businesses

NORWALK, Conn., Sept. 22, 2008  -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today introduced two new desktop multifunction printers (MFPs) that offer high-end  scanning and fax capabilities at an affordable price. The new Phaser™ 3300MFP multifunction printer and the WorkCentre™ 4260MFP multifunction printer, help trim the amount of time workers spend handling documents and managing information.

xerox phaser 3300MFPPriced at $599, the Phaser 3300MFP delivers printing, copying, scanning and color faxing capabilities. With print and copy speeds up to 30 pages per minute (ppm), it's faster and can handle more pages per month than other products in its class, including the comparably priced Hewlett-Packard LaserJet M2727nf MFP. High capacity toner cartridges and a toner-saving mode also help busy offices reduce running costs.

With the ability to scan in color and black-and-white directly to a USB thumb drive, e-mail or the network, documents can be easily shared or stored. The Phaser 3300MFP is also equipped with Xerox Scan to PC Desktop™ software, which allows users to send a document from the MFP straight to their PC desktop for viewing, editing and storing.

The multifunction printer can also tackle a range of everyday office print jobs including automatic two-sided printing. It has a 50-sheet multipurpose tray that can handle a wide variety of paper weights and sizes ranging from postcards to legal-size documents.

For offices looking for more muscle, the WorkCentre 4260 multifunction printer is packed with advanced features and starts at $2,999. The WorkCentre 4260 is Xerox's fastest desktop multifunction system with print and copy speeds up to 55 ppm - a rate that makes it nearly 20 percent faster than the HP LaserJet M4345 MFP.

"Small and mid-sized businesses demand office equipment that is reliable and helps get work done faster," said Rick Dastin, president, Xerox Office Group. "These new products bring some of the technology from our high-end multifunction printers to the lower end of our portfolio to help businesses of all sizes better manage documents."

The WorkCentre 4260 delivers powerful workflow tools at an affordable price. With ID Card Copy, workers save time when copying both sides of an ID or insurance card onto one side of a page. ID Card Copy is especially helpful in healthcare organizations when adding information to patient files. Fax Forward to E-mail saves time and paper by automatically routing incoming faxes to an e-mail address. The WorkCentre 4260 also comes with automatic two-sided printing and the Save Print feature lets users store frequently used documents and forms on the hard drive for fast printing anytime.

The WorkCentre 4260's multitasking capabilities allow multiple workers to print, copy, scan and fax at the same time. If one print job is held up because of a lack of resources, such as needing legal-sized paper, the Print Around feature makes sure other print jobs will continue without interruption, saving workers from unnecessary downtime. In addition, the WorkCentre 4260 comes with a seven-inch color graphical touch screen that is simple to use and not typically found on this class of product.

Other updates to the office portfolio
To help SMBs do more with their color documents, the WorkCentre 5225 black-and-white multifunction printer now includes a color scanning configuration. The WorkCentre 5225 prints up to 25 ppm and offers Xerox's Extensible Interface Platform™ (EIP), which allows independent software vendors and developers to create applications for the device and to customize the touch screen.

In addition, Xerox is upgrading the software on its WorkCentre 5600 black-and-white multifunction series to keep pace with today's ever-changing IT standards and protocols. With support for IPv6 and compatibility for Microsoft's Web Services on Devices (WSD), the WorkCentre 5600 series - with speeds ranging from 32 ppm to 87 ppm - becomes even more powerful for IT professionals.

The Phaser 3300MFP and the WorkCentre 4260 are ENERGY STAR® qualified and available immediately worldwide through Xerox direct sales, agents, resellers, dealers, concessionaires, by calling 1-866-480-3119, or going online at The WorkCentre 5632, WorkCentre 5638, WorkCentre 5645 and WorkCentre 5655 will include the software upgrade in North America on October 1.
