Consumer review by: Dennis (

Xerox Phaser 6100DN


Duplex works excellent, quick to print, connects to network easily, good quality colour images.

Text print quality isn't as crisp as it could be and toner prices, surprise surprise are dear.

Compact in size. Low initial cost for a colour duplex laser printer. Simple plug and play set up. Good Support from Xerox (on-site support free).

Cost of replacement toner. Does not publish that Duplex unit only takes thinner paper!!! Generates a lot of heat when in use. Farly noisy. Slow start time to first print.

compact printer and access to ink cartridges is good

noisy and the first prints always appear smudged and do not always hold colour

Xerox Phaser 6100DN


Easy setup via web interface. Prints fast and well. Duplexer is fine. No paper handling problems in first couple of months. Soft- and hard-ware have both been near flawless.

Comes in a HUGE box, with lots of silly bits to install. It's too big on my desk too, but I could have used a ruler when buying. Envelope feed in manual tray is awkwardly placed low down, and prevents you pushing the printer against a side wall as well.

Incredibly cheap for a duplexing colour network printer.

Consumables extremely expensive - considerably more than a replacement printer. I will be looking for refills / refurbished cartridges, the new ones are ludicrously expensive given the printer price.

networked/usb, duplex and colour laser all for a bargain price! Worked out of the box, up and running within minutes.

Takes a little while to warm up, but then so do all colour laser printers. Once up and ready, prints a full colour page off faster than you could dream of!

Fantastic value for money network ready colour laser printer.

First page speed is quite slow, about one minute.
