SECTION 1
Product Overview
The Xerox Phaser® 7400 Color Laser Printer combines superior speed with great value and
flexibility to set a new standard for business color and monochrome printing capability.
Superior Speed
The Phaser 7400 color printer is one of the fastest in its class, with color print speed up to
36 ppm and black & white print speed up to 40 ppm. But speed is more than a fast print
engine. 256 MB of standard memory allows the Phaser 7400 to RIP and pipeline multiple jobs
without creating a bottleneck. Workgroup efficiency is further enhanced with a first page out
time as fast as 12 seconds in color and 11 seconds in black and white. The 800MHz processor
provides fast RIP processing for all standard office applications. True Adobe® Postscript® 3™ and
a strong image processor provide excellent system throughput. And finally, Intelligent Features
like automatic tray selection, automatic tray switching and an automatic thickness sensor
assure that the job is done right the first time – avoiding costly delays and reprints.
Outstanding Value
The Phaser 7400 color printer is our most feature packed tabloid color printer ever, offered
at the lowest price ever. The low purchase price combined with low cost per page makes
the Phaser 7400 an attractive alternative to a high-end black and white only printer, or to a
low-end color copier. And by bringing print jobs in-house you can save more than enough
to pay for the printer. That’s economics that really add up.
Versatility
The Phaser 7400 color printer extends tabloid color printing in the office to new levels.
All trays handle media sizes from 4 x 6 inches up to 12 x 18 inches. Tray 1 can even print
banners up to 12 x 48 inches. And all trays can take media up to 80 lb Cover (216 gsm)
and Tray 1 up to 100 lb. Cover (270 gsm). And the 7400DXF boasts a total capacity of 3000sheets, from 6 different trays, for maximum flexibility and uninterrupted printing.
High volume applications will appreciate the finishing features available
with the Phaser 7400. From job offset, to multiple hole punch and
stapling options, all the way to V-fold booklet printing with saddle
stitch stapling.
And you can be sure that output is correct with the color confidence
provided by the leader in office color printing technologies. (TekColor

SECTION 2
Evaluating Tabloid Color Laser Printers
Tabloid (11 x 17 in.) color printers open up a wide range of possibilities in the office to create
dynamic, attention-grabbing documents. Prints that once were outsourced to a costly service
bureau can now be produced inexpensively, at the touch of a button. But evaluating a tabloid
color printer can be a formidable task.
There are several models on the market boasting numerous features. Based on years of
research and experience with the real-world needs of color printer users, the Xerox Office
Printing Business has identified some key issues for you to consider as you undertake your
own tabloid color printer evaluation.
• Speed
• Value
• Versatility
• Ease of Use
This section of the Evaluator Guide will look at each of these areas, and suggest
ways you can evaluate a printer’s performance against that requirement. Do this for
all printers you are considering and you’ll see how the Phaser 7400 exceeds expectations on all counts.
PHASER 7400 EVALUATOR GUIDE

EVALUATE PRINT SPEED
High quality color printing cannot come at the expense of productivity — the two must
go together. A color printer must be able to handle a wide variety of documents quickly
and reliably. A color printer must keep up with the performance demands of multiple users
in a shared network environment.
Measure overall performance.
To accurately measure overall performance in a real workgroup environment, send a mix of
black and white and color documents of different length and complexity to the printer over a
standard Ethernet network. This combines the network transmission time, first-page-out time,
and multi-copy engine speed to paint a clear picture of actual overall performance.
Calculate print job throughput.
Print job throughput is the time it takes from clicking the print button on your computer screen
to the final delivery of the color document to the output tray, sometimes called click-to-clunk.
Raw print speed is only a part of the total print time; image-processing speed can be even more
important to maximizing throughput. Test for large multi-page multi-copy jobs such as reports,
proposals and presentations.
Consider color print speed.
Since color printing, rather than black-and-white printing, is the primary use of most color
printers, it makes sense to pay attention to the color print speed. Start with the rated engine
speed, but be sure to investigate the total color and monochrome throughput, including image
processing speed and first page out time.
HOW THE PHASER 7400 EXCEEDS THE SPEED REQUIREMENT:
The Phaser 7400 is the fastest color printer in the office. At 36 ppm it is 33% faster than the HP 5550
in color, and at 40 ppm it is 50% faster in black and white. By combining a 800 MHz image processor
with over 16 years of color printing experience, we have evolved the fastest image processing capabilities
in the industry, giving us a first-page-out time as fast as 12 seconds for letter-size color, and 11 seconds
for black and white.
The resulting productivity means that your print job is finished while competitors are still processing.
And it’s fast enough to replace some copier workload and short run production activities. The Phaser
7400 could even replace multiple printers in the office, both color and black and white.

PHASER 7400 EVALUATOR GUIDE
EVALUATE VALUE
Every dollar spent in today’s business environment has to be justified. So when you are
considering adding or replacing an office resource you must consider the cost of acquisition.
Consider not only the base price, but also the feature set included in that price. What additional
features might you need and what is the additional cost? Look also at supplies capacities,
which will tell you something about the number of unproductive user interventions to expect.
Operating costs over the life of the printer can often exceed the initial purchase price.
Consider the cost-per-print compared to alternatives such as a service bureau.
HOW THE PHASER 7400 EXCEEDS THE VALUE REQUIREMENT:
Starting at just $2,999*, the Phaser 7400 brings professional speed and color capabilities within reach
of every office. Add to that an average monochrome cost-per-print of 1.8 cents** and an average color
cost-per-print of just 9.3 cents**, and you come up with an attractive alternative to a high-end monochrome-only printer or a color copier. The savings from printing medium to large volume color jobs
in-house rather than at a service bureau can pay for the printer over time, even if those types of jobs
are only printed infrequently.
And the Phaser 7400 Color Printer is engineered to require a minimum of user interventions. All of
the user intervention is performed from the front or the top, unlike some printers requiring access to
the rear of the printer to change some consumables or remove jams. Xerox offers high-capacity toner
cartridges that last up to 18,000 prints for color and 15,000 for black (based on 5% coverage). The
toner cartridges are easy to handle and easy to install into keyed slots in the top of the printer. Less
time spent taking care of the printer means more time printing.

EVALUATE VERSATILITY
Consider media weights and sizes – what type and variety of media will your organization
expect the printer to print on. Obviously a tabloid printer must print up to 11 x 17 in.,
but will it print on larger media to allow for full bleeds? Will the printer support a variety of
sizes automatically from all the input trays? Does the printer accept envelopes in multiple sizes?
How broad is the media weight range? Will the printer support automatic two-sided printing?
Consider input capacity – does the printer have high volume input capacity to support large
uninterrupted print jobs? Is the input capacity adequately divided to allow for a variety of
media selections? Will the duty cycle stand up the demands of your organization?
Consider a variety of users – can the printer handle the requirements of multiple users
with diverse needs? Consider the types of documents your network users may need to print;
multi-page reports printed on both sides, large spreadsheets with color highlights, customer
newsletters, routine email and other internal documents, small production runs, custom jobs,
and others.
HOW THE PHASER 7400 EXCEEDS THE VERSATILITY REQUIREMENT:
The Phaser 7400 handles media weights all the way up to 80 lb. Cover stock (216 gsm) from all trays
and up to 100 lb Cover from Tray 1 (MPT). Sizes can range from 4 x 6 in. up to 12 x 18 in. as well as
user definable custom sizes in-between. The Media Weight Sensor automatically selects the best
printing conditions to match the loaded media.
For top quality results, Xerox-branded supplies are engineered to provide optimum performance in
your Phaser printer. The Phaser 7400 prints on plain and heavy papers, Phaser branded transparencies,
laser quality labels, envelopes, cover stock, recycled media, business card media, greeting cards, and
CD/DVD labels and inserts.
An input capacity of up to 3000 sheets and an output capacity of up to 1000 sheets assures office users
of more uninterrupted printing and less user intervention. You’ll always print on the media you expect
thanks to the Smart Trays technology. The printer driver displays what media is in each tray and knows
what your MS Office application is set for, and then matches them perfectly.
Finishing options run from an offset catch tray to various hole-punch and stapling positions, all the
way to a V-fold booklet maker with saddle stitch stapling. Versatile enough to meet all your office
requirements.

PHASER 7400 EVALUATOR GUIDE
EVALUATE EASE-OF-USE
The best way to evaluate a printer’s ease of use is to use it in a real environment over an
extended period of time. But even without that opportunity, the following questions can help
uncover a printer’s true start-up and day-to-day productivity potential:
• How many consumables are there and how difficult is it to replace them?
• Can you easily reach all areas of a printer? Some printers require you access
the rear of the printer to replace a consumable.
• Is it easy to check the consumable status before committing to a large or important
print job?
Also, consider what tools are provided to help manage multiple printers in a network.
• How easy is it to install on a network?
• How easy is it to learn to use and manage?
• Does it offer easy control both over the network and from its front panel?
HOW THE PHASER 7400 EXCEEDS THE EASE-OF-USE REQUIREMENT:
Consumables
The Phaser 7400 provides easy access to all consumables
directly from the front or top of the printer. Individual toners and
imaging units ensure that you only replace items as necessary.
Some manufacturers combine components, like toners with
imaging units, in the name of convenience but you end up
throwing out still-good parts just because one is used up.
And consumable status can be viewed directly on the front
panel or conveniently from your PC.

TCP/IP printers. If a printer is found on the network (already has an IP
address), it highlights the printer and gives you the option to install this
printer or a different one. A new feature – Subnet Mapping – means that if
a Phaser 7400 has been previously installed on another subnet, it will show
up here as well. If no printer is found, the installer directs you to go to the
printer and choose “Select for Installation” from the front panel menu. By
the time you get back to your computer, the installation is complete. For

Operation
When you send a document to a Xerox network printer, our PrintingScout will
instantly alert you if the printer needs attention and provide helpful on-screen
text and graphics about what to do. This way, you’ll go to the printer completely
prepared — no surprises. And no other printer on the market does this.
What would be better than knowing if your printer needs help before you
print? How about avoiding the problem altogether? MaiLinX can automatically
send an email to any designated person when a printer needs supplies or
maintenance, so the printer is always ready.
Loading toners is a simple process, easily done from the top of the printer.
The large high-contrast front panel display is backlit and adjustable for easy
viewing and is simple and intuitive to use. A list of help topics is available at
the main menu. Pressing the i button pops up a contextual help message to
explain whatever menu function or message is being displayed.
The Phaser 7400 printer’s standard paper input tray holds 550 sheets
(or 250 transparencies). In addition, all models include a 250-sheet Multi
Purpose Tray. Up to three optional 550-sheet Feeders may be added
(one is standard in the DT configuration). A 1650 sheet High Capacity
Feeder (consisting of three 550 sheet trays) replaces the 550-sheet
Feeder to give the DX configuration a total input capacity of 2450-sheets
(including the multi purpose tray). Add one 550-sheet Feeder for a
maximum of 6 trays and a total of 3000-sheets of uninterrupted printing!
Individual tray capacities over 500 sheets allow users to add a full fresh ream of paper to a tray when
they notice it is low, rather than having to bother with removing and setting aside some portion of the
new ream.
All Phaser series printers provide detailed information about consumable usage through the front panel
and via email notification so users can anticipate when an intervention may be needed.
You’ll always print on the media you expect thanks to the Phaser 7400’s Smart Trays technology. The
driver displays what’s in the printer, and knows what your MS Office application is set for, then matches
them perfectly.

PRINT QUALITY MODES
The print-quality mode and TekColor correction directly control the quality of your prints.
The print-quality mode and paper type directly control the print speed.
You can change these settings in the printer driver or on the control panel.
MODE
DESCRIPTION
Standard
General-purpose mode for crisp, bright color prints at high speed.
Recommended for most office use and quick prints.
Enhanced
High-quality mode for fine lines and sharp text.
Recommended for detailed prints.
Photo
Highest-quality mode for very smooth color shades.
Recommended for printing photographs or when using graphic arts applications
and press matches.
Automatic
Automatically selects the most optimal print-quality mode for the paper type selected.
For example, Photo print-quality mode is used when printing on glossy paper,
but Standard print-quality mode is used when printing on plain paper.
(This setting is only available in the printer driver.)
TEKCOLOR® CORRECTIONS
The TekColor correction options provide simulations of different color devices. Automatic is the default correction for general image
processing. See the following table to determine what option you want to use.
SELECTION
USE FOR:
Automatic

sRGB Vivid Produces brighter, more saturated colors than sRGB Display.
Press Match
