Xerox Phaser 6500/DN

 

The Xerox Phaser 6500/DN color laser printer offers a highly attractive balance of speed, output quality, and paper handling for a small office or workgroup.

Fast. Excellent paper handling for a small office or workgroup

Although output quality is good across the board, text is at the low end of the range where the majority of color lasers fall

Theoretically identical to the Xerox Phaser 6500/N, but with a print duplexer (for two-sided printing) added and with a faster speed on our tests, the Xerox Phaser 6500/DN color laser printer ($499) delivers an impressive balance of speed, output...

Xerox Phaser 6500DN

 

Xerox's Phaser 6500DN color laser printer for small and medium-size workgroups carries a temptingly low price of $499 (as of February 22, 2011). But given the volume of output that such users are likely to generate, it's unfortunate that the Phaser...

Expandable paper handling

Expensive toner

This workgroup-level printer imposes budget-breaking toner costs, making it unsuitable for high-volume use.

Xerox Phaser 6500/N

 

File the Xerox Phaser 6500/N ($399 direct) under well worth getting at the right price, with a combination of speed, output quality, and paper handling that will fit nicely into most micro or small offices or workgroups. Unfortunately, it's also pricey...

Reasonably high quality output across the board. Suitable paper handling for a small office or workgroup

Although the speed for business applications is acceptable for a small office, it's less than impressive

The Xerox Phaser 6500/N color laser printer offers an attractive balance of speed, output quality, and paper handling for a micro or small office or workgroup, but at a premium price.

Review: Xerox Phaser 6500DN color laser printer

 

This workgroup-level printer imposes budget-breaking toner costs, making it unsuitable for high-volume use.

The Phaser 6500DN provides the usual workgroup-level features: USB and ethernet connectivity; a 250-sheet main input tray and integrated manual-feed slot; and a top, 150-sheet output tray. An additional, 250-sheet input tray costs $199 from Xerox....

Xerox Phaser 6500N

 

Even though the Phaser 6500N doesn't offer the most advanced features on a laser printer, this device still offers high-quality performance. The printing speeds and the 40,000 monthly duty cycle are benefits of using this device, and the 256MB of...

There are 256MB of installed memory available on this laser printer

The Phaser 6500N lacks wireless printing capabilities

The Phaser 6500N is an ideal fit for both office and home use, despite its basic feature set.

Xerox Phaser 6500 review

 

For a sub-£200 colour laser printer, the speedy Phaser 6500 produces very highquality output on both black and white and colour documents. However, its high running costs mean it's not a great option for busier offices.

Excellent results with colour printouts ; Produces crisp and clean black andwhite documents ; Low price tag ; Good print speed

Print costs are fairly high

There's an awful lot to like about the Phaser 6500. It's cheap to buy, yet delivers excellentprint quality. Black and white pages look superb, while its colour output is probably the bestwe’ve seen from a sub-£200 laser model. However, its relatively...

Xerox Phaser 6500N review

 

Xerox's Phaser 6280N has been one of our favourite colour lasers since we reviewed it in issue 250, so we were keen to see if the latest model was as good. The Phaser 6500N is a big, upright printer, but it's slightly smaller and has a lower speed...

The Phaser 6500N is readily upgradable and produces stunning prints. However, it lacks a duplexer and has high running costs.

Recommended!

Xerox Phaser 6500V/DN

 

The Xerox Phaser 6500V/DN is a quick, small-footprint colour laser printer. All consumables bar toner should last the life of machine, keeping maintenance down.

PostScript Level 3 as standard ; Reasonably quick print for price ; Easy access toner cartridges

Paper tray bulge at back ; Slightly above average running costs ; Quite tall for desktop positioning

Forget envelopes

 

I purchased this to replace an HP2600n that was behaving badly with Windows 7. Works fine other than the fact it can't print an envelope without scrunching one end of the envelope. To me this makes this printer a loser as I print envelopes enough that...

Warms up and prints fast. Nice printing

Worthless if you want to print envelopes

Replaced my old HP LJ2600N and doing great job at that

 

this printer replaced my 8 year old HP LJ2600N. the old printer was still good, but the black toner cartridge went "empty" (HP's chip's erratic behavior I guess), and I wasn't in a mood to spend another $80 for a black toner cartridge that should've...

got it on sale for $199. heck of a 600 dpi color laser printer for that price ; it works for the time being ; big, heavy (box was 50 lbs), makes impression of very solid ; non-genuine laser toner is very attractively priced compared to genuine supplies...

contrary to specifications, the built-in paper tray is for 250 pages, not 500 pages. Newegg, clean up your act ; didn't include USB 2.0 cable (come on, Xerox, is it *that* expensive?) ; relatively loud, at times it makes my washer/dryer sound quiet ;...
