Summary: If you're looking for a capable, nicely-optioned laser in this price range, avoid this as there are much better and more reliable options out there. We replaced our two failed 3250s with Oki B411dns, which despite costing slightly less have proven to be better in every way.
Pros: Relatively cheap, fast (when it works), comes with both networking and automatic duplexing, fairly-priced consumables
Cons: Not durable at all. We had two of these where I work in light-duty areas (under 500 pages per month average) and both failed before they were two years old. Not long after buying these, I learned I'd been had - these are just cheap Samsung lasers rebranded by Xerox, and in my experience, Samsung'...
Summary: I have had my Phaser 3250 for about 20 months. I bought it for business use, but we are a small office, so it probably only prints 100-150 pages per week. It wasn't fast, but I was happy with it until its first toner cartridge ran out, which, by the way, was about 3 days after the machine came out...
Summary: I bought 2 of these at the same time for my small office. At about 10,000 copies a gear in the fuser or attached to the fuser breaks apart causing the machine to jam. Up to that point it ran well.
Summary: Our decision to buy this printer was based upon the reputation of Xerox and the Phaser brand names. It was quite a bit more than other printers with comparable features. When first installed it worked okay, but made creaking and other noises we did not expect.
Buyer Beware! Horrible Drivers and No Forward Compatibility

Summary: Xerox customer support is non-existent. If you can talk with technical support during the warranty period, you will get "follow the direction on the web site". After warranty expires, Xerox requires a $25 payment to talk with customer service.
Buyer beware not for networking, not for Mac OS 10.6

Summary: To make it brief. BUYER BEWARE PURCHASE AT YOUR OWN RISK We purchased this unit earlier this year. The initial setup took some time. We wanted to network the printer on a Microsoft SBS 2003 system. First you are required to hook it up via USB to a client machine to setup the IP address.
Summary: If you print allot of envelopes this is not the printer for you. To print envelopes you have to feed them one by one (only holds 1 piece) through the slot and hope the printer catches the envelope.
