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

Xerox Phaser 6500N review

 

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

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.

All told, the Xerox Phaser 6500/DN's balance of speed, output quality, paper handling, and price makes a compelling argument for the printer, and the combination is enough to make this color laser printer an Editors' Choice.

Xerox Phaser 6500/N

 

The Xerox Phaser 6500/N color laser printer is a more than reasonable choice for a micro or small office or workgroup.

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.

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.

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....

Good service, excellent printer

 

I ordered the 6500DN on a Thursday. It was delivered with no nonsense on the following Monday. The automatic duplexer was dispatched seperately, along with a UK power supply. I was not aware to expect 2 different deliveries but no issue really. The...

Consumer review (printware.co.uk)

Printware great - support left us hanging and ultimately cost wasted our time and money.

 

The sales support from Printware was polite and helpful. Delivery was superbly quick. Only criticism - didn't appear to be any depth in product knowledge other than what was on the website. Simon Jones - very pleasant to deal with and remembered we had...

Can't believe this is still on the market

 

If anyone wants my duplex unit let me know. Rest is going in the trash.

- When it was new, color images looked really good - Plenty of after market toner options

- Fuser went back just a few months after purchase. Replaced under warranty - which is hard. Xerox wants you to ship it to them. Not cheap. About 18 months later fuser has failed again. - Manual feed curls envelopes pretty badly. Just like everyone...

The Best for THIS Price & Higher

 

The PROS: So many features for the price, it is unbelievably good! Even for a higher price, it's better than a lot of color laser printers I have tried. AND, the cost for refilled toner cartridges is extremely reasonable. The CON: It's on the large...
