Easy to use, makes excellent scans and copies
There's much to like about the WorkCentre 6605. It's got the perfect feature set for the job, is easy to use, makes excellent scans and copies and is quick to print regular text documents. Unfortunately it's less sprightly when it comes to printing graphics, and we weren't able to get its scanner to work over the network. Moreover its running costs, while not unreasonable, aren't especially attractive. It's a decent MFP for smaller firms, but it's hard to recommend unreservedly.
Eco-friendly, Excellent quality prints
I have always really enjoyed using solid ink printers because the print quality is excellent, but also because it gives customers a choice. They don't have to sacrifice vibrant color quality and eco-friendly features because they want speed and low cost per page options.
That's not to say that solid ink is for everyone, especially when the business is investing $5000 into a printer.
Good build quality is evident
There's a lot to like about the ColorQube 8900 and the solid ink system at its heart. The printer is capable of excellent, rich graphics, has low running costs and is paired with what appears to be a quality scanner. We were frustrated by the driver issues we experienced prevented us getting the best from it. The modest review score reflects our experience, but with a working installer and scan interface it's likely that we would have awarded at least another star.
Convenient built-in stapler
This is a good, workgroup workhorse, well designed and with useful extras, like full duplex copies, the large, easy-to-use touchscreen and even the little stapler. It's not as fast as Xerox thinks, and photo prints can be dotty. If you regularly print more than 3,000 pages per month, you may want to consider the contract version of the machine, rather than an outright purchase, which should give a lower TCO.
Good speed, paper capacity, and features
The Xerox Phaser 6700DN is a solidly built, large-workgroup printer with the ability to increase capacity with your needs. It would be nice if the colour required less tweaking and the warranty lasted longer, but it's fast and produces excellent business documents. Among similarly priced competitors, theDell 5130cdn and Lexmark c792de are both faster and somewhat better equipped, but the Lexmark has pricier toner.
Awesome, except that it's not compatible with GoogleApps
Overall, I was very pleased with this printier except for a very large missing piece of functionality I would have expected given the litany of other security features supported by this printer. -2 stars for lack of outbound mail encryption support as it was one of the primary requirements of my business and a surprise to find out was unsupported. My business uses GoogleApps, outbound SMTP requires encryption. This printer does not support SSL/TLS for outbound SMTP.
Xerox's WorkCentre 6505/DN offers better speed and print quality than many color laser multifunction printers we've seen, for a good midrange price of $749. It possesses all of the strong features of the Xerox Phaser 6500 standalone printer on which it's based, but also the one notable flaw: expensive toner.
Ease of use
The Xerox WorkCentre 6505 is focused on being an affordable multifunction color option for small and medium businesses and I believe Xerox delivers on that promise. The WorkCentre 6505 offers decent print speeds, excellent print quality, five device functionality, good business features (including ADF, USB port and built-in networking) in a decently priced box ($599 for the base configuration).
Sturdy and compact
The Workcentre 6505 may not offer the larger paper capacity or monthly duty cycles of some other multifunction printers, but it does everything it's supposed to do well and, in a number of instances, better than many comparable models on the market. It's fairly fast, sturdy and compact, and it prints some of the best output we've seen at this price.
Very high print speed.
If we hadn't recently looked at theSamsung ML-6510ND, we would have been more impressed with the Xerox Phaser 6510V/ND. As it is, although the Xerox printer is marginally faster, it's more expensive to run and in virtually all other respects there's little to choose between them. Since the Samsung machine is around £420 (35 percent) cheaper, it's hard to find a reason for going the Xerox route.
We have reservations about the Phaser 4620V/DN's non-contracted running costs, and at this price we'd prefer if it came with more than a one-year warranty as standard, but otherwise it's hard to fault. It's as fast, robust and simple as a workgroup printer should be, yet it has the features and an upgrade path to keep pace with the fastest evolving and most demanding business.
