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)

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
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
