Summary: Very nice printer, easy to install and get working. The toner isn't prohibitively expensive to replace unlike some units. The picture quality is excellent for a printer in this price range. I also like the paper feed bypass, and the internal duplexing which has worked perfectly. Unlike an ink jet printer, this printer can sit for a long period, then start up and produce perfect copies without needing the heads cleaned or replaced. It's fast too.
Summary: I started out other printers that had toner flake off issues. Not this one. This is an amazing laser printer. Colors turn out crisp. Prints on paper, labels, transparencies without flaking off. I love it. My colors are rich. I am a candle and soapmaker and it's really important to have high end sharp looks for my product labels and this printer is IT. Do not even hesitate, click on that buy button.
but it is really working great. We use it at my wife's childcare business

Summary: I got SO tired of buying ink. Then you try buying knock-off ink and it spills all over the place. This is my first color laser, but it is really working great. We use it at my wife's childcare business, and the staff prints off lots of coloring pages for the kids, and all kinds of color marketing material. I have no complaints at all. This thing is very heavy, and I actually like that. Sturdy. Plasticky ink jet printers always feel like junk.
Summary: We have a small home run business and have had an OKI 5500 for years in fact we liked it so much we bought 4 of them over the years- but this Xerox is even better- better quality- I have seen complaints of toner cost but if you get non oem then it is very reasonable- love the printer
Summary: I like this printer even though it does not print 24 ppm – it prints 204 pages with some color pictures on both sides 13 minutes. I have printed about 3,000 pages on different types of paper and no one jam. It is quiet and does not “think” too long. What I like the most, it has recognized a not genuine cartridge I purchased from LD products as genuine one (The difference in price is $90 - !!!).
Summary: Linux Compatibility: Works with Linux/CUPS. I was a little hesitant since this printer wasn't listed on openprinting.org, and similar listings didn't have a "works perfectly" rating. This is probably because Xerox's printer utility programs don't run on Unix/Linux. It doesn't matter however since all printer functions can be viewed and configured through the web interface or on the LCD panel. As with all postscript printers under Linux, no driver is required.
Summary: - I was fed up with paying for ink-jet refills, so I did some research and bought this for the family for Christmas and started using in January 2013. -- With two school age children, an adult in a Master's program, and an engineer we go through a fair amount of ink (toner now). -- I replaced the first cartridge early this year: the black cartridge. - I actually saved the entire cost of the printer in NOT buying ink for the ink-jet.
Summary: I used an HP 4050N for years as my main printer and a HUGE HP4700 color laser at work. The Xerox Phaser 6500DN is smaller than the HP color and does a better job. It has a built-in duplex unit that allows two sided printing of PDF documents (Word doesn't have this feature). The printer automatically goes into standby until you need it and quickly turns on to start printing. It's extremely fast at better than 20 pages per minute or about 3 seconds per page.
