Summary: The linux drivers haven't been updated in 5-6 years, and don't work with current distributions, at least not "out of the box". Too bad this printer didn't get supported directly in CUPS. (Even sadder is that linux is now even worse than windows at supporting "legacy software"!) This is a fine printer for windows, though.
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 of warranty. When I put in a new toner cartridge, the Phaser started printing poorly. I called Xerox tech help and they sent me a new cartridge.
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. This printer also seals the envelope closed without the letter in it and if you put the letter in the envelope it will not feed through the printer because it is too thick, that's not good. This printer sucks!
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. If you start to hear grinding gears at about 10k then you might as well junk the machine because getting it repaired costs as much as a new machine. Must be a design flaw.
Summary: I have purchased 6 of these for my office. One of them had a problem out of the box. It has been 5 months and multiple phone calls to Xerox and promises of having a printer overnighted to replace this one. Still no printer. Xerox has the worst technical support and customer service of any company I used thus far. Never again - I will use HP from now on. I am disgusted with Xerox's lack of response, rudeness, and not wanting to fix a defective product.
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. Occassionally it would jam and the trouble light would come on. We tried different (more expensive) paper which did not seem to help.
