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.

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 ;...

Ridiculous toner usage

 

I wonder how many of these Xerox would sell if they put a big label on the box stating you will consume toner at the rate of $1.20 per page. I could literally buy a new machine every time cheaper than I can resupply the toner.

Works great. Print quality excellent

installed on 11-10-12 and by 2-10-13 I have consumed $750 worth of toner in only 622 pages printed (1 set of regular toner cart and 1 set of high capacity cart). Xerox tech support told me "That is normal if you are printing color exclusive images

You can't beat this

 

This printer is very well-made! Feeds paper well, prints BEAUTIFULLY and toner is much cheaper than other brands. It was very easy to install and works well with my Windows 8, 7 and Vista machines. I love it so much I'm buying one for my church office

NONE

Well made

 

For a few hundred dollars more you can be using color cube solid ink

Very well made. Pro quality compared too many others

No duplex printing and that adds up to a total waste of time and paper
