First I will mention this is my first Laser Printer so I really don't have anything to compare it to. Here is what I can tell you from my perspective. Over all experience is great! The print quality is just awesome. The colors are vibrant and bright. It was relatively easy to set up. If you have used anything like this before I think it will pretty easy. It is really not a heavy machine. You definitely will have to learn the menu, learn to navigate it and how to understand the terms. The navigation is pretty much a basic pyramid type menu you start with a few main options each with their out set of options and so on.... There is an option to print out a menu map, this is very helpful. Sometimes you just don't remember where you saw an option at. So, you will probably need that. The printer is very sensitive to movement. I have had to adjust the color alignment a few times now. The paper jam sensor is very sensitive. Every time it senses a paper jam, you will need to open and close the front to get the warning off the menu. I have yet to have an actual paper jam but I have had to open and close the front probably 20 times. I print out very detailed images, the print time for some of these images is very long. If you are printing out a form or letter head it will print very fast but if you want to print a detailed image it's going to take few minutes at least, to get it out. Also gradients are not a laser printers best friend, apparently. I have had it take more then 5 minutes to process an image before it prints. Fortunately I am not in a time crunch so I don't mind the wait considering the image is superb when it comes out. I have had a few issues with printing, the thicker card stock I use which is Xerox brand and is compatible with the printer, occasional doesn't print right. The toner doesn't fully adhere to the paper and flacks off. It is always the black toner. This only happens on occasion. when it does though who need to run a few sheets of paper through the machine because the toner that came off is still in the machine and if you try to print anything it will pick up the loose toner that came off the bad print and ruin the next few prints. It is only the card stock that does this.

The Xerox Phaser 6500 is a quality machine. Fast, quality printing but NO wifi. If you're not within cable range to plug to your router, you have to go USB directly to your computer. If you use a mobile computer/laptop, like me, over time, like 2 weeks, your computer/laptop will stop recognizing the printer. Then you have to shut everything down, start again, and pray it works. I've had this printer for only a little over 3 months--- Major disappointment. I cringe every time I have to print something because I never know if it's going to be recognized by my laptop. Mine hasn't been able to link with my laptop for about a month straight now. Customer service/tech support couldn't figure it out after over 2 hours of being on the phone with them. When I have time I'll call back and hopefully get some sort of results. It will work, then it doesn't, and then it does again. This time, like I said, it's been over a month since it has worked. I have an HP that works like a champ. Never any issues, but the toner costs more. I hope this helps JC

Print problem with black toner

By 

from Ohio

Comments about Xerox Phaser 6500DN Desktop Color Laser Printer:

In my previous comment I mentioned about the black toner not adhering to the paper and flaking off. I have read multiply similar complaints from users on different sites including this one. The solutions given didn't seem to fix the issues. What I finally realized to be the main culprit of this issue for me at least is, that when I design something in Adobe illustrator and then print it, if I use register black as my black I have problems with the toner but if I use 100% gray then I don't. The black may not be as dark but if you would like it darker it is best to adjust the darkness level by 1 to get a richer darker black without and issues with flacking. You also need to use paper that is some what porous. If you use gloss paper it will give you trouble. Also if you really want to use gloss paper I found that heating the paper before printing on it helps a lot. Also set the printer to, thick card stock. I think that setting turns up the fuser heat level a little. The black toner issue as been a on going issue but sense I starting using 100% gray it is not given me any issues. Other then that, the printer has be very good. The print quality is excellent.

Comments about Xerox Phaser 6500DN Desktop Color Laser Printer:

This color laser printer is excellent. The only thing that it was missing is a duplexer in my unit. However, I can live without it. I highly recommend this printer.

Great product. Fast and print quality is excellent.

Comments about Xerox Phaser 6500DN Desktop Color Laser Printer:

Ordered this printer to print flyers and letters. Printer is fast and print quality is excellent. The setup was so easy. The only problem I ran into was there were no Window 10 drivers so I had to downgrade drivers. No problems after this was done.

Excellent Value, Excellent color printing

By 

from Washington, DC

Comments about Xerox Phaser 6500DN Desktop Color Laser Printer:

This is an excellent printer for the money. My previous color printer (non-Xerox) was difficult to use because it was not WYSIWIG by any stretch of the imagination. I always had to lighten or color balance, which was a pain. This does an excellent job of printing color images that are true to the screen colors. I also like how compact the toner cartridges are and how easy it is to change. I work in a church office and use this to print between 80-130 bulletins every week and about 120 newsletters every month (this is about 2,000 pages per month).

Better than I expected

By 

from Wyoming

Comments about Xerox Phaser 6500DN Desktop Color Laser Printer:

I went looking for a photo capable color laser printer and I found it in this model. Its resolution in b&w text is not as good as a dedicated B&W laser printer but is still readable if the text is large enough on the page. Color photo reproductions, while not as good as an ink-jet printer, are still of sufficient quality to be hung as finished photographs.

Not Speedy

By 

from Caldwell, NJ

Comments about Xerox Phaser 6500DN Desktop Color Laser Printer:

When we first received this printer it worked quick, but after about six months it has slowed down so much. I find myself hitting the attach tab and print faster than one sheet will print out now. I wish it would print as fast as when we first got it. Guess it doesn't pay to buy it out right. Better to lease some things, and I definitely think this is one of those things. Think twice before purchasing if you really need and rely on the speed of a printer because this one is not the one.

Useless for Windows 10

By 

from Adams County, WI, USA

Comments about Xerox Phaser 6500DN Desktop Color Laser Printer:

I have had two previous Phaser printers that both have quit; since it would cost too much to have them repaired by someone over 60 miles away, I bought the Phaser 6500. After attempting to load it into my computer, with Windows 10, it keeps giving me this message: "Installation to OS cannot be performed." Now I am using an Encore all in one printer, but its ink cartridges don't compare with my Xeroxes.

This printer warms up fast and the print quality is great.. Unlike most laser printers, it is actually shipped with full toner cartridges instead of demo toner.
