    Difference between Docucolor 3535 and Phaser 7760

    From a design/engineering standpoint is the DocuColor 3535 a totally different engine from the "small" Phaser 7750/7760 printers? Or are they quite similar internally?

    Well the design of the machine is the same the major difference are the software, cards and one aditional fan and the speed.

    yeah the chassis are about the same. DC3535 uses old style toner where 7760 uses new High gloss toner, same powder as in DC 240/250
    Also they tend to work the bugs out from generation to generation so Phaser 7760 being newer should be less problematic. The only thing - in good old days you could get a external fiery/rip for DC3535 where it is N/A for 7760.

    I am trying to decide between these two printers but I need to know what this term "external fiery/rip" means first. Would you be so kind as to explain this?

    RIP is Raster Image Processor. They come in variety of sizes and computing power, some are built in and come as an upgrade from regular print board some are hosted on external PC with addition of dedicated software/hardware to process the image and wary in cost, some are more than $10,000. EFI and Creo are few of known manufacturers for external RIPs DC3535 had and option to have External RIP but due to age it is ancient as dinosaur, Phaser 7760 came with only 1 type of controller, it comes with HDD standard and there is additional memory slot if you wish to expand RAM thats about it. We had Phaser 7760 in out printshop and never experienced shortage of power from print controller, sure RIP lets you to better control colors and registration, may let you to do imposition, layouts and many other tricks but machines in your question are mid level units, they're not really production printers, if you have to choose between these 2, go with Phaser as DC3535 is really old no matter how you slice it and Phaser has nicer glossier toner.
    If yo plan on buying used, well - you do as they both not current models, I have excellent Phaser 7760 with 68,000 pages on it, I can max-out the RAM as a bonus, I have Phaser 7500 which is Xerox's current model and successor to Phaser 7760 with 18,000 pages on print count.
