||Last year Xerox introduced its newest printing line - the WorkCentre M940 color inkjet printer/copier/scanner system. Although many products Xerox comes out with are designed for business use only, the WorkCentre 940 was made for personal professional use.
Its features provide photo-quality color printing and copying. (We printed out several digital images and the quality was excellent).
Because the Xerox M Series uses thermal inkjet technology, the electrical energy heats small chambers of ink behind each
print head nozzle. The heat then creates an expanding vapor bubble in the ink, which produces a small droplet through the nozzle onto the paper. Xerox has some unique offerings with its M Series printers - the creation of carbon black ink, the development of printheads with 600 nozzles per inch and overall improvements in printheads.
The M940 is easy to set up with just a few minor hookups needed and simple to follow directions. The WorkCentre is offered at
$199 per unit.
Minimum system requirements for a PC connection include a Pentium 133 MHz processor, 32 MB RAM, 40 MB HD space. The M940 works with Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 95/98/00 operating systems.
The flatbed copying features on this system prints up to 12 black and white copies per minute and up to seven color copies per minute. The scanning feature is most useful because it is quick and easy. Simply place the document on the copier face and the image will be scanned in at 600x600 dpi resolution.
The M940 comes complete with the Xerox ControlCentre 2.0 software, a document management software, and PC fax software.
