Offering a new capacity for thicker paper and card, the C8000DT replaces the Xerox Phaser 7500.
Xerox launched the Xerox Phaser 7500 series in 2009 and this machine was one of Xerox’s most popular printers for a decade.
However, as technology moves on it’s now time to say goodbye to the Phaser 7500 and welcome its upgrade… the C8000DT.
The Phaser 7500 was sold on both Pagepack and non Pagepack contracts and aimed at graphic users, just like the like the Xerox Phaser 7800 series. The Phaser 7500 was a lot cheaper than the Phaser 7800 and produced a similar print quality, but it was unable to print up to 350gsm media, meaning it wasn’t ideal for any users who needed to print on heavy paper or card.
Goodbye Xerox Phaser 7500
Xerox discontinued the Xerox Phaser 7500 in quarter 4 of 2018 and replaced it with the Xerox VersaLink C8000DT. The new model boasts far better specifications, with a 1.6ghz processor, 4GB of memory as standard (it was 512 MB in previous versions), and a max paper weight of 350gsm. It’s worth noting that its ability to cope with heavier paper and card is the same as the new, more expensive, VersaLink C9000DT printer, which replaced the Xerox Phaser 7800.
So if you are looking to replace your existing Xerox Phaser 7500, look no further than the Xerox VersaLink C8000DT. You won’t be disappointed.
