The Xerox Phaser 3435 is designed for office environments and at a cost of US $399 it is the second most expensive monochrome laser printer in this test.

In testing the printer proved reasonably quick though it fell behind the cheaper OKI and more expensive Canon offerings on the whole. Feeding the Xerox our 20-page text document, it spat out the first page in 11 seconds, which made it the slowest printer off the mark. In line with this, the printer's final print speed of 25ppm was the second slowest in this grouptest.

Feeding the printer our 6-page text and graphics PDF document, the Phaser managed a print speed of 15.6ppm - the second slowest once again. The Phaser's slow first page out performance was quite surprising because the printer features the fastest processor - at 400MHz - in this grouptest.

With a weight and dimensions of 12.7kg and 401 x 434 x 312mm respectively, the Phaser has the largest footprint in this grouptest, followed closely by the Canon i-SENSYS LBP6650dn. Compared to the Canon however the Xerox is better equipped in the connectivity department because whereas the former only offers USB and Ethernet ports, the latter includes those ports along with a parallel port. As a result the Xerox can be connected to even very old office machines, if a network is also amiss.

Verdict: While the Xerox has strong specifications its actual print performance is average at best and comes at a somewhat high cost.
