While it’s true that Xerox no longer offers the Xerox XC23 printer as new, this is a model many people have and many will find valuable. There are quite a few used printers of this model for sale though, and you may very well be in the market for one. A simple online search will result in plenty of retailers that have this model in stock. Following are the specifications for this printer/copier that uses Xerox XC23 toner, as well as some basic information.
First and foremost, when you consider the specs of this model, you have to keep in mind that it is in fact a printer and a copier. The speeds won’t be the same as a machine that is only a printer. This model copies and prints up to 23 ppm black and white. That is a pretty decent speed for a copier. Depending on what you are using it for, this would easily accommodate most small business needs.
This printer comes with all the basics, including an automatic document feeder, stapler, and collator. The collator is in the form of sorting bins. There is no binder available for this model. The maximum monthly volume of this unit is 20,000 sheets, so it has a fairly high productivity rate. This model also has an automatic input of 750 sheets, or if you prefer manual input, it can hold 50 sheets.
As far as technical details goes, this device does use a standard light lens for making copies. It also uses standard black cartridges that can be found through numerous online retailers. This is a larger unit, and may not be suitable for home use, but I have included the exact specs on that below.
One nice thing about this model is that you can set it to make up to 99 copies at a time. It also comes with five different enlargement/reduction settings. This allows you to format your copies in a variety of sizes, and can save paper by allowing you to shrink images to fit.
As I mentioned before, this is a sizable machine. It weighs 152 pounds and its dimensions are 35.5 x 24.2 x 22 inches. This would be a nice size for small business use, but may be a bit much for personal use. Depending on what you need this device for, it does appear to be very efficient, and when you consider the fact that it would be a used purchase at a lower price, it is still feasible to consider it for home use, if you have the space available.
All in all, this does seem to be a pretty efficient machine. This is very similar to what I would expect to see at my local grocery store or small print shop for basic copies. A straight forward, no fuss copier and printer, with a decent work load and simple user interface. Because it is a basic no frills model, even beginners should not have any problem using this machine.
Again, the Xerox XC23 printer is no longer available. But, as I said before, there are many retailers selling this model used online. Many offer warranties, so do your homework when purchasing. This model seems to run about $250 and it appears to be a very good value for the money. The cartridges are also available at numerous online stores, and run anywhere from $80-$85 each. As with any used purchase, replacement parts may become obsolete in the future, and technical support may not be available. All in all, when you consider the price, this may well be a good investment.
Online retailers stock XC23 replacement toner, as they do for the many different types of Xerox Phaser printer toner. Great prices on laser cartridge can be found just with a little searching and a few clicks.
