Xerox Phaser 6500DN

 

A compact A4 colour laser with superb output quality, but its running costs are unacceptably high

A monster, but I love it

 

Great quality, very solid. We bought it largely to print calendars with big color photos on bright white, heavy, plain paper, and we are very impressed. We won't be working it hard until Christmastime, but so far so good. We got aftermarket toners that...

For my uses, I have no complaints, but it's a brute, which might be a con for some people. For a home printer, it's very heavy, and, as others have reported, when it prints the lights dim. Also, like most printers I've seen, it appears that the list...

Short term printer

 

Prints good quality when you can get it to print

Stopped printing blue after about two months. Xerox sent someone to the office to repair it. He replaced a part. Six weeks later it stopped printing blue again ; I will not buy a Xerox product again. This printer has just become a very expensive...

Great printer , but beware toner cost

 

Toner cost is not Neweggs fault, its the same everywhere. Newegg still rocks . xerox need their heads examined.

Great printer , easy to use. Does any office graphs and sales flyers with ease

Toner costs almost 200 bucks more than a new printer? 470 for new toner , 299 for a new printer? Seems a bit outrageous. Need to search the web for knock off toner I guess

Good print quality

 

Quiet when idle, fans go to sleep. Purchased from newegg in June 2012.

Very good print quality in this price range for a range of document types. My wife was in commercial print production for 20 years and has a more discerning eye than mine. She likes the Xerox more than our Konica Minolta 1690. We had a Minolta 2250...

Prints slower than expected from a large color photo submitted by our iMac 2013. Might be the LPD based network protocol used. We hear that HP JetDirect based protocol is faster in a CUPS print subsystem, but haven't tested that fully yet

Xerox 6500 DN

 

Tested printing in black only and still a couple of red dots appeared. I would guess that a cleaning is in order? Calling tech support for help or returning for replacement. I shouldn't need to purchase a cleaning kit for a new laser printer.

Great price from Newegg when purchased under one of their quick deals last week ; Print quality has been good for my first 50 documents, alignment on page is good as well. Most color laser printers I have used in the past have issues with lining up...

Loud fans and mechanics in the printer while printing ; Fans at idle are louder than most desktop and tower computers (annoying white noise) ; Not a quiet printer ; Printing little red dots up the length of my paper on every page ; Seems to be a power...

A real printer

 

Costs more up front, but saves you $$$$ on the ink over an ink jet.

Beautiful printing and photos. Don't buy a dot matrix--they don't last, and feeding them ink will eat you out of house and home. I had a 6120 before this, the ink lasted 4 YEARS. Duplexer to print two sides is very, very cool

I haven't tried off-brand ram sticks yet. Looks like it takes DDR3 laptop memory. Xerox wants a stupid price for it

Lasted less than six months

 

I purchased this printer in September of 2013 and it ran fine for about three months. On average, I print about 30 pages including both color and B/W prints. It stopped printing in November of 2013 because there was a problem with the blue toner. I...

Pricey/Poor Value, Quality, needs repair too often
