Summary: If you don't need a color printer, don't buy this. The black toner cartridge is small compare to other printers at the office. The paper tray is extremely small. It cannot even fit one pack of paper.
Pros: great color
Cons: too big, paper tray way too small, toner cartridge is small
Pros: First venture into a higher end multifunction printer. Far and away an improvement to the popular equipment being sold today in speed, user friendly, and quality. Wanted one printer that could be networked with a PC/Mac, thus saving on an additional printer and ink.
Cons: It is necessary to have the office desk space it has a large footprint.
Summary: This thing is a beast. For the price I'd be surprised if you can beat it. It does have a personality, and accessing some of the functions seem arcane, however overall the things that matter speed, print quality reliability trump all of that. Bought the Duplex module for double sided (seems a lot for what appears to be a single moulding). But works well. Only thing missing a duplex for the ADF.. however I guess at the price something has to give. Need one? Buy one.
Summary: I got this for £236, and that was an unbeatable price. This is a very able bit of kit. Produces extremely good prints. Just make sure you buy your toner replacements from somebody like ... doitwiser_co_uk on Ebay. Full set of toners (they work - Ive used them for years) for less than £50 delivered. The only thing different about them compared to original Xerox toners is that you wont need a mortgage to buy them.
Summary: I read varying views and reports about many colour laser printers before making my purchase - essentially everything you read is contradicted by something written by someone else. I went for the 6505 as I found a very inexpensive source of non OEM cartridges on Amazon. Having unpacked the box, I hard wired it straight into my wireless router and worked first time with both my home and work Windows 7 laptops on the network.
Summary: I've owned this printer for over a year. Pros: Prints well. The printer is laser so toner needs to be replaced less often. Has an automatic page feeder. Can be matched with another Xerox paper tray which is useful in a large office setting. Cons: Overpriced compared to its performance, and requires many costly accessories: extra proprietary memory, network adapter, duplex unit.

Summary: This product is described as being Mac compatible. As far as the printer aspect is concerned, it printed extremely well. But despite an hour long phonecall to Xerox, there was no way of installing the fax and scanner software onto my computer, an iMac on Snow Leopard. It stumped the technician at Xerox too so there was no option other than sending it back to the seller, at the cost of £50!! Currently negotiating a refund on the machine and the postage.
