Xerox Phaser 6130/N

 

When I unpacked the Xerox Phaser 6130/N ($450 street), my first reaction was that it looked like a shrunken-down version of other Phaser models. It seemed a lightweight, compact solution for anyone needing a color laser for a small office, home office,...

High-quality output, particularly for text. Small. Lightweight. Network-ready

Slow. Limited paper handling. Effective monochrome speed is below the rated speed

The Xerox Phaser 6130/N's small size and light weight make it a good choice for a small-office or home-office network color laser.

Review: Xerox Phaser 6130 color laser printer

 

Though the Phaser 6130 is inexpensive, there are better options in the same price range. For $50 more, you can buy Brother's HL-4070CDW, a much faster, higher quality color laser printer that includes wireless networking and duplexing.

Setting up the color laser is simple. Weighing 37 pounds and measuring about 15 inches deep, the Phaser 6130 is relatively small compared to many laser printers; you should be able to set up this device safely without assistance. Once you lock the...

Xerox Phaser 6130 Review

 

We've remarked more than once that hardware shoppers can often get good values by buying last year's model instead of a new, mildly freshened version of a product, because the manufacturer is sure to have lowered the older version's price to make room...

The Phaser 6130 marks a pleasing step closer to the day when color laser printers are compact enough to stash anywhere or even to move from desk to desk within an office. Its paper tray may need refilling a little frequently for our liking, but its...

Xerox Phaser 6130 review

 

Xerox's Phaser 6130 is a colour laser printer designed for small workgroups or personal office use.

Although the Xerox Phaser 6130 is inexpensive and solid, there are better options in the same price range.

Xerox Phaser 6130 review

 

A colour laser printer is never likely to win awards for aesthetics, but we were impressed with the moderate size and weight of the Xerox Phaser 6130.

Not the bargain it might first appear. Does a good name mean it's a good buy?

Good quality prints ; Quite fast

High printer price ; High running cost

Good mix of performance and features but lost out because of the high pricing.

WATCH YOUR MONEY GO DOWN THE DRAIN!

 

DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!!! IT IS A HUGE WASTE OF MONEY!!!

NONE! THIS PRINTER IS HORRIBLE

Solid ink technology HORRIBLY implemented. Ink is expensive & as the printer keeps it heated up so it can print, ink melts like a crayon and drips into the waste tray and you end up throwing away half of your ink (AND MONEY!) right into the garbage

Stuck with their wireless server

 

If you want a printer that plugs into one computer only and makes good prints then I would say that you would do well with this unit.

Great price. Nice prints

Terrible setup documentation. Forget about wireless configuration to a wireless print server unless you purchase their Xerox wireless print server for several hundred extra of your money

Good, solid Printer, but slow...

 

Got a few days ago ($207 from vendor on amazon.com). Easily connected to my Linksys wireless router. Now anyone connected to the network can use the printer (even wireless...). Great print quality, especially black text and color graphics. Pictures are...

Great Print Quality on black text and color graphics ; Networked easily ; Cheap to operate

Slow, definitely not "fast" like the Xerox website says
