Easy Mac setup
I replaced my old Mac Laserwriter II after 10 years of use. Plugged the color printer into my Time Capsule, loaded the driver, and it works beautifully.
Most Liked Negative Review
Impossible to get the printer to collate when printing multiple copies. Very annoying indeed. Print 3 copies and you 3 copies of page 1, then 3 of page 2, etc. Great printer if you're into manual labour.

I've used laser printer since the early 80's (Xerox) and have always wanted a home laser color printer which did not break the bank. The Phaser 6500 fills that niche perfectly. Low initial cost and cost per print on par with most ink jet printers, and you don't have to worry about the cartilages drying out when not used for a couple weeks. Print quality is superb and paper handling is great. We'd had no problems with any paper stock, from 20lb bond to 65lb card stock.
This is honestly the best printer I have ever owned. I found myself in the position of unexpectedly having to replace my heavy-duty printer, an HP model, which was much slower and more finicky than it had any right to be. After researching this unit, I was impressed by all the positive feedback, as well as the promised features. I have not been disappointed.
I have been using printers for over 25 years and this has to be the most difficult printer I have used. On color documents the black type often prints as dark brown. When using card stock the "Jam, open front cover" comes on even though there is no jam. Envelopes come out all curled. I use my HP 2200D monocolor printer for all documents that are monocolor only and all envelopes and special sized paper. Looking forward to the day the toners run out so I can buy a different printer.
The printer has done all I've asked of it. with no trouble since its purchase.
I'm happy with printer. Only thing I would say negative is that is somewhat noisy in a small office
Great quality and fast. But rather hard to use because too complicated and frequently needs service
I had this printer repaired while it was still under warranty but it still isn't working properly. Both of the gentlemen who worked on the machine provided excellent service. I believe the problem is in the design. When it worked it was a wonderful tool. Now that the warranty has expired...not so much!!!
Toner mechanism does not hold up ... only ran 3 black cartridges before it started spewing toner all over the paper. Had to buy another machine just to use of my toner supply. Will never buy a xerox product again.
Have had a terrible time keeping the printer connected to my computer on home network. May work for weeks without problems then, when I try to print, I have to re-install the printer again. Does the same on my wife's computer. Never had a problem until this Xerox. Does print well when it prints.
This color printer is great for home or office use. My kids use it for all their school projects and we have not had any problems with it.
