What is the Xerox WorkCentre 3325?

Print speed is one of the main features that determines the price of a printer. A laser printer offering over 30ppm would normally come at quite a price, but Xerox, through some retailers, will supply you with a 35ppm WorkCentre 3325 for just £250.

Xerox WorkCentre 3325 – Design and Features

For a fast, multifunction printer, the WorkCentre 3325 has an impressively compact footprint. Although it flares at the top to accommodate the flatbed scanner, it will still sit comfortably on a desktop.

The substantial Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a duplex device, so you can scan and copy double-sided jobs, as well as printing them, though the scanner makes multiple passes across its single-sided head to achieve this.

Set at the front is a substantial, full-width control panel, which includes a 68mm, backlit mono LCD display, illuminated mode buttons, a numeric pad for fax dialling and well defined job control buttons. Below the controls is a gap for page output and to the right of this is a USB socket, which is good for both uploading print jobs and downloading scanned pages.

Xerox WorkCentre 3325 – Installation and Connections

The main paper tray can take up to 250 sheets and a pull-down multipurpose feed adds an extra 50 to the tally. Should you need greater capacity, a 520-sheet supplementary tray can be added underneath as an option. At the back are sockets for USB and gigabit Ethernet connections.

Although Xerox hails the WorkCentre 3325’s built-in wireless support as a key feature, this is mainly there to ensure flexibility in where you position the machine. It doesn’t support Wi-Fi Direct, let alone NFC connection, so won’t enable you to print easily from phones or tablets.

In fact, although the company supplies Android software to print to the machine, you can only do this by first sending the document to an online service such as Gmail or Dropbox. Useful, but really only halfway there.

We didn’t find installation particularly straightforward, either, as there appears to be no way of logging the machine into a wireless network without temporarily connecting it via USB. Even then, it took us a couple of attempts to get the printer to recognise the network.
