3.5 stars Very good

The Good Colour LED printer in a compact casing. Network-capable.

The Bad Slow print speeds. No downloadable Mac drivers.

The Bottom Line Fuji Xerox's colour laser is relatively quiet and delivers good quality prints, but not in any kind of hurry.

Design

If you were going to design a laser printer along conventional lines, there's a very good chance that you'd come up with something that looked almost exactly like — if not identical to — the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CP205. When the most striking thing about a product that you can find to say is that it's black (or white) in a market that's dominated by beige or light grey printer models, you know that you're stretching. The Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CP205 measures in at 394x304x234mm and weighs in at 11kg, making it a squat but solid bit of printing kit.

Features

The DocuPrint CP205 is a colour LED printer, and that's it. If you're after a multifunction you won't find it here, although there is one slight variance that Fuji Xerox offers within the range. The DocuPrint CP205 we tested comes with USB 2.0 and 10/100 Ethernet connectivity, but for those who yearn for wireless, the higher priced DocuPrint CP205w supports 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. In terms of supported operating systems, anything newer than Windows XP or Mac OS X 10.4.11 should suffice, although we did hit one annoying quirk along the way relating to that claimed compatibility.

Fuji Xerox rates the DocuPrint CP205's print speeds at up to 12ppm in colour and 15ppm in monochrome. There's no inbuilt duplexing functionality, so small businesses keen on duplexing would have to do a lot of manual paper shuffling with the DocuPrint CP205.
