Xerox receives two Editor's Choice Awards from 'PC Magazine,'

color printers take top three ratings in 'InfoWorld' round-up

Xerox Corporation's (NYSE: XRX) Phaser(R) 7750 color and Phaser(R) 4500 black-and-white network printers have both received the prestigious Editor's Choice Award from PC Magazine.

The Xerox Phaser 7750 won a head-to-head face-off against the HP Color LaserJet 9500, while the Phaser 4500 won an overall Editor's Choice Award from a field of nine competitive products. PC Magazine Editor's Choice Awards are bestowed to the products and services that stand out from others in their category.

Additional accolades from the editors at InfoWorld were earned by the Xerox Phaser 7750 color laser printer, the Phaser 7300 color laser printer, and the Phaser 6250 color laser printer for their speed, features and ease of use - trumping Hewlett-Packard's LaserJet 5500 and LaserJet 9500. The editors cited these Phaser printers as the top three color workgroup printers tested among 13 competitive offerings.

"Xerox's line of Phaser network printers offers a full range of features and functionality, without compromising performance and speed," said Emerson U. Fullwood, president, Xerox Channels Group. "It's gratifying to be recognized by both PC Magazine and InfoWorld and it demonstrates Xerox's leadership in network printing."

The PC Magazine Editor's Choice Award went to the Phaser 7750 for its speed and high performance. PC Magazine said, "the Phaser 7750DN has significantly faster performance and, at the high end, offers more features dollar for dollar, making it a much better value and our clear choice." The Phaser 7750 follows in the footsteps of its award-winning predecessor, the Phaser 7700, which was honored by PC Magazine in 2001 with a Technical Excellence Award and an Editor's Choice Award for top speed and photo-quality color images.

The Phaser 4500's honors from PC Magazine come from it being the fastest laser printer in its class and its all-new design, which makes the device lighter and more efficient. As noted in the review, at 36 ppm, the Phaser 4500 is easy to use and packs in more features and capabilities than any other printer in its class. The Phaser 4500 was compared with competitive products from Hewlett-Packard, Lexmark, IBM and Dell.

Estimated retail prices for the printers are: the Phaser 7750 at $5,599; the Phaser 7300 at $3,400; the Phaser 6250 at $1,999; and the Phaser 4500 at $979. All four printers are available worldwide through Xerox direct sales, resellers and dealers, and they come with one-year onsite service warranties and the Xerox Total Satisfaction Guarantee. In addition, Xerox offers toll-free customer support at 800-835-6100 and www.xerox.com/officeprinting.
