Excerpt: Not very happy with this printer. The bypass feeder is awkward and difficult to use to beging with. But to top that off it rarely works so printing on letterhead or envelopes is a chore. Then there are the default settings. Despite the number of times I have set the properties to print on a single page it always prints on both sides of the page unless you reset the property on every print job.
Excerpt: Fast efficient printer, just what I needed as my old HP 1150 was on it's last legs and all the new HP printers in this price range have poor build quality. The Xerox Phaser 3320 fits the bill for my high turn over of monochrome pages as well as giving me a high yield cartridge.
Summary: Our printer is a vintage Phaser 6250DP. I say vintage because it is out of production... out of warranty... and out of my patience. When we purchased this printer it gave us excellent service and excellent print. After about 6 months we had a fuser issue. A new fuser took care of the problem and we went along for a few more months before the jams began happening again. The first fuser that went bad had about 75% left and the second fuser had over 80% left.
Summary: I have two xerox phaser printers. The 6250 has been nothing but problems also. It has been returned once and the problem still happens. I get a "Jam at fuser" after just a few pages almost every time I print. I have replaced the fuser twice, they are not cheap, on the advise of customer service. Still have the same problem. I googled the error and noticed a ton of other people have the same issue.
Summary: We use these printers at work. Everyday, there's a 95% chance the thing is going to jam up w/ the first print of the day. Additionally, the color is waaaay off. I mean to the point where the color green at the top of a page is yellow at the bottom. It's really confusing when you're performing tasks like reviewing shaded spreadsheet printouts where the colors have meaning. Plain-and-simple: AVOID THIS PRODUCT.
Summary: This is the worst printer I've ever owned and will NEVER buy another Xerox. As a professional graphic designer, I've owned about 7 different printers. I've had this printer for almost 2 years and I have had more trouble with this Xerox than with all the others combined. It started from day one when the first page would jam on start up and the unit would emit a high decibel, high pitched squeal.
If I had to eat a turd, I guess I'd choose the one that stinks the least.

Summary: I support two Phaser 6250s, networked, in use by 75 users. I've amazingly never really had a problem with either of them. With all the advances in computers, graphics, software, and hardware... why can't anyone make a printer that works, is easy to use, and won't need every part replaced after a year? And could someone please explain why EVERY printer requires it's own type of toner? Is the 6350 really that much different than the 6250?
Summary: We used Tektronix Phaser printers in the '90s, and when we needed a replacement Postscript printer two years ago, we bought a Phaser 6250DP. It worked well for about six months and then we started having various minor problems. At ten months and about 23K pages, we had to get a service rep out to fix a failing imaging unit. They had our machine apart for two days and basically replaced every major assembly in the printer. After that it worked well for about two months.
Summary: I work in an area with a team of about 20 engineers, and our group 6250DP has been flawless for almost two years now. It's a mixed environment of Windows and Mac OSX. We print about 5000 pages/month consisting of spot-color documentation, presentations, LOTS of vugraphs, and photographs.The average cost has been around 5 cents a page for consumables. Reliability: perfect. Installation: effortless.
Summary: I've owned this printer for 4 months now and it's broken down twice. The first time when the fuser broke down Xerox provided excellent service and talked me into purchasing the extended warrantee. Now the imaging unit is malfunctioning when it's only 1/2 used up, and it is impossible to get a new one anywhere, under warrantee or not, as they are backordered from the manufacturer until mid January.
