Xerox Phaser 6250N


The easy-to-use Phaser 6250N churns out color graphics very quickly, but print quality is mediocre.

Compared with other similarly priced models, the Phaser 6250 is very fast and delivers comparable graphics quality, but its text was the least attractive of the bunch.

Jammers check the firmware upgrade


Beside the jamming issue, we can't complain.

Just the jamming issue that the firmware corrects

Jam prone


Duplex printing is nice... when it works.

Constant paper jams. Expensive to operate. Wrinkles cardstock.

6250N - Fantastic workhorse & trouble free


My company received these printers as a 'bonus' for renewing our lease contract on our large multi-purpose (B&W) machines. WOW - what a deal! We were using HP ink jet printers for color previously. These machines rip through job after job effortlessly ...

Fast startup, LCD display, clear sharp color graphics, fairly economical (for color)

photos are so-so at best

The only color laser printer in our office.


Fast print speed, good color rendition, good paper handling, excellent cost/page among other positives

Prefer higher resolution prints ; however, slower printer and/or substantially increase the cost
