Xerox Phaser 6130/N

 

The Xerox Phaser 6130/N features small size, light weight, and better-than-par output quality for a color laser.

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

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

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.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Amazing Printer. Totally justifiable switch from inkjets...

 

Overall very satisfied. I bought some quality paper for it and my prints look absolutely spectacular. The new system came with 4 starter toners which last about 100 pages each. I just hope the day when I need to replace the 4 toners never comes, cause...

Great quality prints, the colors are sharp and very clear, and even b&w prints look sharper than some other laser printers. Since I am switching from an inkjet printer, the speed of this Xerox far exceeds any and all of my expectations, not to mention...

Basically there are two ; It tends to be a little loud in the "ready" mode, as there's a rather loud exhaust fan in the back. Not a big deal, especially since you can set it to go into power saver mode after as little as 5 min ; I still don't know how...
