This printer offers high performance. This device is intended to abort the idea that home users better using inkjet printers. In addition to jump on SOHO and enterprise segments, Fuji Xerox also present for the home segment. The presence of their products in this segment in order to change the general view which states that home users are more suitable to use an inkjet printer types. Therefore the Fuji Xerox presenting DocuPrint P205 b that offer capabilities and features of interest.

This printer has a standard home printing press function. However, through the drivers, you will find a rare setting function. This function is to print enlargement and reduction, similar in function on printing copies. You can also set manual duplex function and also other configurations.

When installing the toner cartridges, you will find the lock feature. When not in use, you must set it in a locked state. In this position, the printer will not print. Then, make toner locking when trying to print. This meant that the toner is not scattered on the device (especially when the device is in non-active). However, it does look toner powder easy scattered.

The most striking from printer is a laser print speed. Print laser indeed using a different technology compared inkjet. In addition, the toner can print in larger numbers. Indeed, the price you spent when you first buy toner are higher than if you buy an inkjet cartridge. But overall, the results are more economical to use a toner. Moreover, the price is not far adrift P205b toner with inkjet ink prices.

Another advantage of laser printer is quality. Laser printer output looks sharp, neat, and precise. Moreover, the prints will not fade or cause spotting due to the use of powder. It is already proved by the P205 b.

We liked what Fuji Xerox DocuPrint P205 b offered. This device is a high performance, quick-shaped, and has an attractive price. But there is one obstacle for us, namely the use of electric power that is still quite high. This is what makes this product not able to compete with inkjet printers.
