Good printer, but has tendency to automatically choose 2 sided printing and sometimes has a mind of its own (wants me to use manual feed when I didn't select it)

Valarie B., Newegg
7 February 2014
  • Summary: I'd been contemplating purchasing a color laser printer for a while. I own a marketing communications company and have been producing marketing materials and proposal documents for clients. For the price, it can't be beat. I am, however, disappointed in Xerox's cartridge rebate offer.
  • Pros: Prints fast Nice quality prints Works nicely for my small business
  • Cons: Had to replace black ink cartridge within first week (printed about 1000 pages, though) Got a few weird errors about paper size Defaults to 2 sided print Sometimes asks for manual feed when I didn't specify

Great Output!

Jim Kapper, Staples

  • Excerpt: At first the printer to appears to be a bit flimsy compared to my former Phaser 8560 but is actually very solid. I would strongly suggest that if you are going to use this USB and network connection, that you do them ONE at a time.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Fast Print Time, Less Messy Than My Other, Sharp tones & colors
  • Cons: Difficulty In Set Up On A

Fast prints, nice quality

DEVIN D., Newegg
17 January 2014
  • Summary: this was a good buy, and the network interface was not too bad to navigate to get it setup on a static IP. it is much easier to use the computer GUI than the screen on the actual printer.
  • Pros: simple duplex kit, has nice color
  • Cons: it went through the first black toner cartridge in about 2 weeks worth of use. hopefully that was a fluke

Amazing Picture Quality

Consumer, Staples
13 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The pictures we print on the letters we send out are amazing quality with this printer. We have a HP that we used to use and the difference in picture quality is clear as can be. Sharp, vivid images.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Durable Construction, Easy To Set Up, Fast Print Time, Reliable, Sharp tones & colors
  • Cons: Too much toner used

Fantastic value!

Tsur, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: As of June, 2013 this has to be the best value for a home office or small workgroup printer. Currently, the 6500DN can be had for around $310. Comparable printers are typically double that cost and may not even have real Postscript or ethernet. The quality of the 6500DN is very good.

Good print quality

Mark E., Newegg
30 April 2013
  • Summary: Quiet when idle, fans go to sleep. Purchased from newegg in June 2012.
  • Pros: Very good print quality in this price range for a range of document types. My wife was in commercial print production for 20 years and has a more discerning eye than mine. She likes the Xerox more than our Konica Minolta 1690. We had a Minolta 2250 fail under only light use at home. So far the Xe...
  • Cons: Prints slower than expected from a large color photo submitted by our iMac 2013. Might be the LPD based network protocol used. We hear that HP JetDirect based protocol is faster in a CUPS print subsystem, but haven't tested that fully yet.

Great color-quality and cheap toner (as long as you buy from LD Products)

BoFiS, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this printer to replace a Dell color laser that came with our computers for free. The Dell printer was a piece of garbage and never had as good print-quality as this Xerox 6500.

So Far, So Good. Cheap, great qualitiy ink.

Gaghordi Jr, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: The print quality is great, I'm using this printer for my printer and so far so good. I will let you know if any problem arises. But I'm expecting this to last for quite a while. I'm planning to buy another one, just in case this one fails me.

A real printer

Willard B., Newegg
7 May 2012
  • Summary: Costs more up front, but saves you $$$$ on the ink over an ink jet.
  • Pros: Beautiful printing and photos. Don't buy a dot matrix--they don't last, and feeding them ink will eat you out of house and home. I had a 6120 before this, the ink lasted 4 YEARS. Duplexer to print two sides is very, very cool.
  • Cons: I haven't tried off-brand ram sticks yet. Looks like it takes DDR3 laptop memory. Xerox wants a stupid price for it.
