Xerox VersaLink C405DN in More Detail

The versatile all-in-one VersaLink C405DN is designed to make your business more efficient. With out of the box mobile connectivity, workflow streaming Xerox apps and exceptional brand quality printing to elevate you above the competition, the VersaLink C405DN helps you work smarter from anywhere.

Brand quality colour prints, fast

With colour and monochrome printing at up to 36ppm, with high quality 600 x 600 x 8 dpi definition, the VersaLink C405DN delivers exceptional print quality for your branded brochures, presentations and business communications. With true to life colour reproduction and vibrant colours that pop off the page, prints from the VersaLink C405DN display razor sharp monochrome and high definition in fine lines and details when you use innovative EA toner. The manufacturing process of EA toner is 25% more energy efficient than generic toners and delivers professional results using 45% less toner than aftermarket alternatives while protecting your printer from the damage non-genuine cartridges can cause.

Out of the box productivity

With easy step by step set up and the super intuitive 5 inch colour touch screen for 'mobile' style access to Xerox's extensive App Gallery, your VersaLink C405DN will be up and running in minutes with full mobile connectivity for your iOS and Android devices thanks to NFC tap and pair technology.

Better Brand Imaging

This printer has been designed with a impressive resolution of 600 x 600 x 8 dpi, and this translates into consistently better prints and remarkable results for your business. How? The greater the Number of Bits an imaging system uses, the more grey levels are available for display. Since this model uses 8-bit Images, you are able to enjoy 256 shades of grey which enables your business to capture the small shifts of colour that result in a perfect image.The benefits? The more grey shades a printer has the smoother the gradient of colour in an image will be, therefore abandoning the days of banding or visible stepping of colours that can cause your brand imaging to look unprofessional or inaccurate The Xerox C405's 8-Bit Depth makes sure that your investment never fails to produce professional prints.

  • Can this printer in anyway print in A3, even if there is an add on for the printer?

    Unfortunately, the Xerox VersaLink C405DN is an A4 printer - so it's maximum print size would be A4. There are no add-on's or accessories to support A3 printing with this machine. You would however, be able to print A3 documents by splitting them into A4 sheets. All of our A3 printers are available here. Or if you require any further assistance, our Printer team would be happy to help on 0800 840 1992.

    On 17/05/2017 10:31:15
  • What is meant by 600 x 600 x 8 dpi Print

    The x8 refers to the bit depth. This enables Xerox to increase the resolution without having to sacrifice print speed.

    A standard 600 x 600 dpi resolution essentially would provide 360,000 dots per square inch.

    Adding the x8 bit depth into this allows for a superior 2,880,000 dots per square inch without having to compromise on print speed.

    On 12/05/2017 11:16:39
  • Does the Xerox C405DN have a touch screen and is it simple to use?

    The Xerox C405DN has a 5 Inch Capacitive Colour Touch Screen that is incredibly simple to use, with an easy to navigate smartphone-like home screen hosting various apps that mean accessing your printers different settings has never been easier.

  • donavan Bangs 11 December 2018 4.25 / 5 Value 4 Features 5 Quality 4 Performance 4 It works

    It actually works. Prints and scans both sides. It can photocopy and is even able to output as a pdf to a network drive. It can do a lot more that i do not need like with phones. More importantly i can print envelopes( the old style ones) it wrinkles them a bit but it actually works which many lasers cannot. It works better with decent envelopes.The build quality is a little light on the paper tray but functional. A real multi functional unit.

  • Robert Kelly 07 December 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Great!

    Great service from Carl in sales and the printer arrived next day as promised. I'm very impressed with the print quality and all the features this MFP offers.

  • Vince Testa 01 December 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 I wish I'd known about Printerland sooner!

    We've always purchased our printers and printer accessories from Curry's/PC World. It was easy and we got what we thought we needed. However, we came up for an upgrade and purchased a colour laser printer from Curry's. Unfortunately, we received such poor service that we were compelled to search the net for an alternative supplier. That's when I discovered Printerland! Luke Penman dealt with us and he was absolutely brilliant! He took the time to listen to our printer needs, asking all the necessary questions to ascertain the right printer for what we’d be using it for, explaining exactly what we should expect from the printer, namely its costs and most importantly, the quality. He was very efficient and emailed the invoice straight away. It was delivered the next day and this left us feeling that it was easier than Curry’s! Well done Luke and keep up the great work!

  • Peter John 25 November 2018 3 / 5 Value 1 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 1 Good output - but lousy purchase

    Purchased as a an upgrade but an dreadful and deeply regretted choice. We are constantly having to turn the machine on & off to reset as it fails to print simple things like web pages and PDFs. Used as a network printer I suspect that the Xerox software is a problem - that was the indications from the visiting Xerox engineer. I hadn't spotted the lack of a memory upgrade and this means that large files previously handled are now rejected. Our productivity has nosedived; wished I had not allowed myself to be talked into the upgrade. Xerox have regresses to where they were in the 60's and 70's.

  • Hamish Dobbie 08 November 2018 2.25 / 5 Value 2 Features 5 Quality 1 Performance 1 Poor software

    The printer drivers and software are appalling. Constantly having issues with computers being able to connect to the printer over a network. Lexmark and Brother printers connect seamlessly. This Xerox is endless trouble. When it prints it is good.

  • John Grant 30 October 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 First class service

    the sales consultant took the time to find out my needs and offer suitable alternatives that would work out better value and save me money in the long term. Friendly and knowledgeable assisting me make a better more informed decision. Great company I recommend to anyone buying a printer. They do what they promise. Thank you Printerland

  • Jon Bunce 30 October 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 A great option for a small / larger office!

    After a small amount of deliberation, we decided to add an MFP into the mix at our office. We replaced a print only Phaser 6600 with this and since then we couldnt live without it. Despite looking similar to the phaser, this Versalink has exceeded our expectations. Its fast even from standby, handles any documents and photos with the same speed (the Phaser was slow with high resolution files or images) and the scan to network, scan to email and other functions are excellent. Overall this printer has saved us the cost in time and patience, and the Extra-High capacity toners last months and months. Very very impressed with this printer, and also the service provided by Printerland, who we buy all of our consumables from, we email in when we are low and they always go the extra mile to get a good price and then the toner is there next day.
