Phaser 7100
The Xerox Phaser 7100 is a color, tabloid printer that delivers detailed, clear prints on many different kinds of media, including oversized paper. The 7100 was created to deliver the capabilities you need to create printed materials that deliver an impact. We’re excited that Xerox has branched out and offered this tabloid-sized printer at an affordable cost, making high-quality, wide-format prints within reach for more customers.
HP Envy 120
HP Envy 120 with AirPrint technology was released over the summer, and is great for home offices and other small-business applications. It delivers lab-quality photos as well, which can be convenient for home users. What makes the Envy 120 so great is that it delivers both wireless and on-the-go printing, meaning you can send documents to the printer from wherever you are, and they’ll be ready when you arrive. The wireless printing works exceptionally well with the HP Envy 120, and most users with minimal knowledge will be able to quickly set up and use the wireless functions by following the included directions.
The Epson GP-C800 is designed exclusively for applications that need to use continuous paper. Traditionally machines designed for use with fanfold paper were impact printers, but the GP-C800 is an inkjet that delivers both the convenience of continuous paper and the greater print quality of inkjet technology.
OkiData MB491

OkiData’s MB491 is another favorite. It is a black and white device that features a compact design, making it ideal for small offices or small workgroups. It prints at 42ppm and has an 80,000 page per month recommended use. The OkiData MB491 was also recently awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award for Energy Efficiency from the Buyers Laboratory, LLC, due to many of it’s features that combine to minimize the environmental impact it creates while optimizing the performance in a workplace. The low energy consumption rates, along with automatic duplexing, a toner save mode and above average toner yields, combine to make the MB491 a fantastic choice for the environmentally-conscious, yet productivity-minded, organization.

The ZT230 from Zebra is a direct thermal barcode and label printer  that allows organizations to improve their efficiency  The Zebra ZT230 delivers a 450m ribbon capacity, which means greater uptime and less ribbon changes, and an all-metal case is designed for years of use, even in rugged environments.
