Xerox Phaser 6120/N Printer


The Xerox Phaser 6120n is priced low at $499, and delivers better graphics quality than the very similar Konica Minolta MagiColor 2450, which costs $200 more. Like the 2450, the 6120n supports PCL and PostScript. The two models' speeds were nearly...

Better graphics quality than most lasers ; Supports PCL and PostScript

Text was very heavy, with blotchy edges ; Optional duplexer costs $399

Installation was quick and easy, thanks in part to Xerox's thorough documentation. The control panel has a two-line LCD for setting networking and paper-handling options

Xerox Phaser 6120 Network-Ready Color Laser Printer Review and Prices


The Xerox Phaser 6120 is a versatile color laser printer that offers a number of attractive features. The performance often leaves something to be desired, but the Phaser 6120's affordability makes this much easier to live with, especially when you...

Budget-friendly price, above-average output for color photos and graphics, accepts high-capacity toner cartridges for lower per-page printing costs

Output quality of text is not impressive, slow output for color documents, duplexing unit is an expensive option

HardwareCentral - Xerox Phaser 6120 Review.


Well, Xerox will tell you that the 6120 aims higher than its rivals -- although it's lighter and smaller than some, it's a color laser suited for small offices or workgroups instead of a single-user desktop. Both a USB 2.0 connector and 10/100Mbps...

Speaking of the preinstalled toner cartridges, they're not the half-empty starter cartridges that many manufacturers put in the box to shave the purchase price -- while the magenta, cyan, and yellow cartridges are Xerox's 1,500-page parts (replacements...

Xerox Phaser 6120/N


If you're shopping for an inexpensive color laser printer, you should consider the Xerox Phaser 6120/N. It gives you excellent photographic image quality, networking and PostScript 3 features, and an abundance of high-end optional upgrades.

Includes PostScript 3 ; excellent photo quality

Not Bonjour capable

This printer is easy to handle and setting it up was a breeze. Its four toner cartridges come pre-installed and you can connect the printer to your Mac directly via a USB 2.0 cable, or to a network via the built-in 10/100 Ethernet port. We did all of...

Xerox Phaser 6120 Colour Laser


Xerox hopes to make a splash with its new affordable colour laser. Simon Williams investigates.

The printer's physical resolution is 600dpi, but with software enhancement this increases to 2,400dpi. This is the default mode for printing.

Good prints, but features are lacking


No cable is included to connect the printer; make sure you get one so you don't make a last-minute run to the store like me. The printer is loud at startup and while printing, but that doesn't matter to me. Also this is a pretty large printer...

The print quality looks great. Text/graphics are crisp, clear, and vibrant using stock settings. Full page 8½×11 photos come out looking pretty good; not quite like inkjet prints but still pretty good, and much more durable. The colors are accurate and...

The cancel button on the printer doesn't work! To cancel a single page print I first pressed Cancel and then Select. The screen said that it was cancelling the job, but then the printer pulled the paper from the tray and printed it anyway ; Also, there...
