XEROX 6505dn is pretty much junk, a disposable printer at 100,000 pages

Summary: We bought several of these Xerox 6505DN printers last year and though they are very expensive to operate/maintain (toner and imaging units) we were generally satisfied with them... until.... The first printer printer hit 100K pages. At 100k pages the printer stops operating (no fax or nothing) and you must replace the transfer belt, not a problem, I bought 2 expensive transfer belts from Xerox ($269 each) planning ahead to have one on hand for the next printer that...

Summary: I love the packaging. This printer is heavy and lifting it out of the box would have been very challenging had it not been the innovative packaging. The bottom part of the box is "bolted onto the separate side walls and top that ccome off when turning the bolts to enable unpacking. Installation is not however that easy. They ask for a serial number, which I was unable to find probably becuase it is underneth a 58lb printer.
Summary: I purchased this unit after having owned a Xerox Phaser and being happy with it. This unit works great in every function and has some really nice features! It also comes with management software and scanning software but I haven't gotten into using those yet. The scan feature is easiest used with a USB thumb drive right at the unit. Since you have to be at the unit putting paper in anyway, why not store it on a thumb drive and then take it anywhere you want it?!
Summary: Ordered through Amazon, with PC Crush to fulfill. worked quite well with very light use for about 90 days with only replacing black toner 1x. Then, like clock work, it stopped picking paper (xerox brand) from tray. No jams no other errors. Then the real fun began! Local xerox service provider verified warranty status, but refused to work In home office. Then we contacted xerox directly. Only email contact allowed.

Summary: Must have technician on staff or hire someone to make most of the features work (fax, scan to email, etc.). Ok quality printing but the user interface is awful and the documentation is mind numbing.
Summary: print quality is great. when you copy it automatically scans and prints in colour which can not be set to bw which uses up colour toner. also i've had issues trying to get an SMTP server to work with this printer for scan to email feature. it says it supports it but not able to get it to work. i guess i have to call tech support while i still have it for the year to find out how to get this to work if it even does work.
Summary: I have a new Dell computer that came with Windows 8. I use this printer with a wireless router. Actually, I have two of these printers bought at the same time -- identical. They sit next to each other. After setting them up, calling customer support multiple times, hiring an IT professional, and he is right now on the phone with customer support, it is always the case that one works and one doesn't. Troubleshooting is impossible.
best kept secret...It doesn't copy/scan legal size !!!!

Summary: Details on this item page are inexcusably sparse . but since it's about the same on the Xerox website how can you expect much more from Amazon . I must say that the print quality is very impressive , especially the glossy color . Much more reliable and lower cost to print than an inkjet. Unfortunately that is where my praise ends . - Does not handle legal size copies/scans (printing legal is a pain also). That is inexcusable in this price range.
Summary: I bought this printer for my medical office about 5 months ago. Initial setup was without problems. All functions are working well. Documents and copies are great quality, faxing is good, scanning not used too much, but works as expected. Great feature is the wi-fi networking. I can print to this from any of five computers. I am thinking about purchasing another, but the price I got was much better on Amazon than the one now listed.
