    Great multifunction printer

    By Medoc

    from Detroit, MI

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Xerox® WorkCentre® 6505DN Color Multifunction Printer:

    I've had this printer for a couple of years. It sees moderately heavy use in my office. I was so pleased with it that I bought two more, one for my personal office and another for my home office. The print quality is excellent, even the colors are quite vivid. After about two years I did have a problem with one of the toner cartridges dumping magenta toner all over the inside of the printer mechanism. What a mess. Coated the print head, but cleaned up eventually. Not sure what caused the problem but it didn't repeat. Then had the imaging unit go bad and had to replace it. Found an aftermarket part at much less than Xerox wanted and it has performed well for about 8 months. I had one issue since the imaging unit was replaced. It was printing black very light. Tracked it down to scroll feeder being clogged. There is a function to activate each individual color's cartridge feeding mechanism on the printer. Once this was done, the black print returned to the previous darkness and all has been well. The other two printers don't see as much use and have had no problems so far. I have used the generic toner cartridges without problems (unless that's why the magenta coated everything inside the printer). But that hasn't happened again.

    Great machine, eats toner

    By pawson

    from northeastern pa

    Comments about Xerox® WorkCentre® 6505DN Color Multifunction Printer:

    After living with Canon, HP and Brother multi-function printers, the Xerox is the hands down winner. Build quality is good, but it does NOT have a small footprint, that's for sure. It is a workhorse for our small business. Subscribing to Xerox e-concierge gets you free, onsite service - all you have to do is order your consumables directly from Xerox. We've had one service call, and were pleased with promptness and professionalism. Overall, we have been very pleased overall with this printer. When Brother wanted us to disassemble a machine to look for problems (and yes, it was still under warranty, that was the last straw). I will never have to tolerate such poor customer service again. The only downside to this printer is that it does seem to run through toner, but some people here like to print everything and anything so that might be a factor too.

    Its Okay but Disappointing

    • Uses Too Much Ink

    Best Uses

    • Office

    Comments about Xerox® WorkCentre® 6505DN Color Multifunction Printer:

    Since most people want to know what we don't like...
    Cons:
    1) the alternate paper feed (bypassing the paper tray) only allows one piece of paper at a time and it just hangs there as there is no supporting structure that pulls out to lay the paper on.
    2) the toner cartridge is dinky so we use up the black relatively quickly - we've had this several months and don't do anything significant as we have a dedicated B&W printer for the majority of our work, yet we're already close to needing to replace the black toner if the toner indicator is accurate
    3) the platen for copying or faxing only handles standard paper size, so if you want to copy legal size you MUST use the auto-document feeder
    4) access to the toners is on the right side of printer - not from the front - so you have to make sure you can access the side panel.
    5) if you open the paper tray for any reason, you have to reset the 'size' and 'weight' of the paper before you can print again

    PRO:
    1) easy to scan to a file on your computer.

          Comments about Xerox® WorkCentre® 6505DN Color Multifunction Printer:

          Xerox makes wonderful equipment. My company continues to buy a lot of their printers because of their ongoing commitment to high quality. This printer, in particular, is well built and has all of the features I wanted: native Postscript support, Linux print drivers, and the ability to scan directly to a folder on Linux via Samba. If it performs as well as my other Xerox printers then this will become the primary "workhorse" for its new facility. If you're in market, watch for frequent specials; they can save you a lot of money.

          Comments about Xerox® WorkCentre® 6505DN Color Multifunction Printer:

          This unit is a replacement for a Brothers MFC-9440DN. The Brothers printer is a great printer but is was due to be replaced. The Xerox was chosen for its reviews and cost. The replacement brother was much more expensive. The Xerox starts printing faster than the Brother, it prints more copies faster. it prints with finer detail, and it looks nice. On the bad side: The xerox was confusing to set up. the setup software tended look like it was hung-up - it was realy working, but there was no indication it was working as it was loading. Xerox needs to change this. The transition from the brother software to the Xerox software was like going from a Cady to a Chevy. Xerox needs to update and automate the a little more. Use the brother software as a standard but make it better. I hooked the computer up using USB connection. Sometimes the computer and printer do not sync. and commands need to be done again. The scanner needs to be told if its to use a sheet feeder or glass plate scan. please put an option for automatic. It would be nice to direct the scanned file to a specific folder.
          Other than that the printer is ok.

            Needed to use the plug and play then when asked pointed to CD for drivers. No automatic setup for all features.
            Fax on a shared tel line is disasterous, cant maintain a conversation. otherwise LOVED this machine. Feel sorry but needed to return it, must have fax !. Fax pickup option is based on seconds not number of rings.

            Set up is on the IT professional side of life or for those capable of doing it yourself. This is after all, a professional grade scanner/copier designed for wired use on a small network. Those experienced setting up network printers will have little to no problems setting up this machine. Xerox tech support if needed, is USA based and top notch. Currently this machine may be purchased at bargain prices. This machine may be converted to wireless use as well. Supporting software is sufficient but needs to be upgraded to 2013 standards i.e. Windows 8 platforms.

            Comments about Xerox® WorkCentre® 6505DN Color Multifunction Printer:

            I bought this AIO six months ago for my medical office. It gets a good work out daily and with the 30,000 duty cycle per month, is more than enough for my uses. It would be nice if there was a wi-fi option for connecting it to the office network, but the ethernet cable does ok, just limits how far from the computer it can be placed. There were some problems with setup that were handled with tech support. It makes fast, great quality copies and printed pages. The auto duplex printing saves a lot of time and paper. I've found generic cartridges on a popular shopping site for which I pay less than $100 for all four. They are accepted by the printer and function flawlessly. The printer occasionally gets lost and (Win7) have to go into control panel and reconnect with the printer. Occasionally, it won't print and have had to shut it off and restart it and all is well again. I'm purchasing a second one for home office use. What better recommendation can I make? And the price is $100 less that last June on Staples site. Wonderful!
