Heh heh, my 8200 (the 850 won't) will print on legal size paper, but it will only use 8.5 x 11" of the page
. It's a function of the size of the drum. The way that thing works is it piezo-electrically squirts hot wax (the name "Phaser"
comes from the phase change – solid to liquid to solid again – of the wax) onto a stainless-steel drum, thus forming the image, and then rolls it onto the paper. (Incidentally when a Phaser has a paper jam, it will always ask for a "cleaning page" because the wax dries on the drum, and in that state it doesn't transfer to the paper very well.) It can't produce an image longer than the circumference of the drum, or wider than the width of the drum. Fortunately, I don't need prints larger than 8.5 x 11". There are some tabloid-sized color printers that Xerox has branded as Phasers, but they are true color lasers, not wax phase-change. The phase-change printers provide richer color than the true lasers, and they are cheaper to run, but the wax can be scraped off of the page, you can't hot laminate the prints (well you can, but it looks awful), and if you fold a print in the middle of an image, there will be an ugly fold line.
