Introduction


Fuji Xerox has not long ago released a slew of printers for the local market, targeting different audiences from home to offices. Bringing together innovative features which makes these printers stand out, we are sure that these units are sure to be popular in the market. Today, we take a look at the top of the line Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM225fw AIO Printer device. This printer can also copy, scan and fax as well.





Getting connected and started...

The Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM225 fw is made to perform. It has got whatever feature that you desire a good printer to have. It can connect directly to your PC by its USB interface, networked via a LAN cable, or even networked wirelessly with its built in wireless LAN card. Of course, there is also a telephone port that receives and transmits fax. The DocuPrint CM 225fw is also highly usable thanks to its 4.3inch colour touch screen. Setting up the printer is extremely simplified and guided with the instructions on the screen. I was able to get started with printing within minutes.

Performance and other Features

With the award winning SLED ( Self-Scanning Light Emitting Diode) and DELCIS ( Digitally-Enhanced Lighting Control Imaging System) technologies, the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM225 fw is able to print out high quality images/documents at 1200 x 2400 dpi. Printing is also fast at 18 pages per minute for both colour and black and white documents, yet not compromising quality. Another point to note about the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM225 fw is its quiet operation. I was amazed at how quietly this printer operated.

The only problem I have...

Sadly, the only down side of the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM225 fw is its inability to print in duplex mode. Even though it has its own intuitive ways to make manual duplex printing easier, the lack of duplex printing feature is really a deal breaker.



Conclusion

If you want an all in one printer that does all the required printing, scanning, copying and faxing jobs for your office, the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM225 fw is a good choice. It should fit in the budget of most SMEs at a RRP of SGD549 and does not take up a lot of space. However, its lack of duplex printing functionality is really a deal breaker. Nonetheless, we thought that Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM225 fw performs really well, producing sharp and crisp images and documents, while operating quietly, suitable in a closed office environment. Moreover, wireless printing also makes makes creating printouts a lot more convenient for multiple users within a single office. We definitely recommend this unit of you do not require duplex printing capabilities. Other than the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM225 fw, there is also the DocuPrint CM115w without the fax feature, CP115w and CP225w with only printing capabilities which costs much lesser.
