Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Good Desktop Printer
If you have a user who needs a desktop color MFP - this is an ideal choice if they are comfortable with the speed. I had the challenge of balancing space and speed, so I selected this printer given that faster color MFPs can be quite large. The downside is that the first one I received had some UI issues where the interface kept crashing, however Xerox service was great about sending a replacement in very short order.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mack Good for home office use
I purchased this product for my home office as we needed something a little beefier than an inkjet style multifunction machine. Our biggest needs were laser printing of employee manuals and the scanner for business receipts. We also wanted a machine that would work with our iMac. This machine has worked flawlessly for us so far. We purchased the "NI" model with wireless connectivity and the scanner works great over the wireless connection. I really enjoy having a document feeder to use now for scanning (as well as the flatbed capability) instead of our old multi-function device that only had a flatbed. So far so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Auditors Hard At Work Simple, reliable, no surprises, 4-star approval!
We got this multi-function printer for a small auditor team office. The full set-up (including WiFi authentication) was easy and I never had to read the manual to get it working. The LCD screen prompts are quite logical and intuitive to follow. The small footprint is a big positive, it does not dominate the desktop and the unit's beige colour scheme works really well -- other manufacturers offer all-black units that are very ugly. The front-loading USB port makes it really easy to scan documents for fast transfer to the memory stick.
I set up the office laptops with 4 presets in their print configurations -- B/W DRAFT, B/W FULL, COLOR DRAFT, and COLOR FULL -- and we made B/W DRAFT mode the default. This saves toner and in draft mode the quality is still very good and readable. Only for formal printing of client documents do we choose the full- quality options. So with that economy in mind, the toner consumption is very modest and affordable.
The output speed for a first print is a bit slow, but in practice, we don't mind and it is not a crippling issue at all. It's a pleasure to use this printer. We studied the market for weeks and were getting quite confused but in the end, it has proven to be a great choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kipper Good unit. Read the manual.
I've had this unit for over a year and use all the features regularly.
I used to have it wired to the router but now have it connected over wifi and haven't noticed any difference in terms of speed or reliability.
I have a Windows Server machine on the network that acts as a print queue and smb/cifs file share to store scanned documents.
There are two minor issues with the 6015NI. The first issue is that sometimes when it is in energy saving mode, it does not wake up when the fax line rings or when you send a print job to the printer. You need to switch off and on again for the unit to recover. The second issue is that the document hopper sometimes feeds in two or three sheets at a time, especially if you're scanning thinner paper like invoices, meaning that the resultant pdf is missing pages. It would be a great improvement if future models had an adjustment for sheet thickness to mitigate this.
On the plus side, the fax quality is as good as you'll ever get on G3 and is fairly rapid.
Scanning to a Windows network share is easy and the scan engine is fairly quick. This unit will scan a 10 page document in around 3 minutes at 600dpi and then encode to pdf and transfer to the network in under a minute. That's quite a lot quicker than the huge MFD I have at my main office.
Printing is reasonable. It's not blistering fast but it's a small inexpensive unit so I expected this. It's a shame there isn't the option to add a duplexer as double sided printing requires a bit of discipline to get it right. Setting up print profiles will help conserve toner which is not exactly cheap but still better value than the hp 3505 it replaced.
There is a web interface so you don't need to do all the configuration on the little front panel thankfully.
There are so many features and alternative ways to do things that you really do need to spend 15 minutes reading the manual to get the full benefit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dugi I bought this unit because Xerox declared support for Linux. I'm completely disappointed.
Drivers for Linux were released only once, for one version of the Linux kernel, for printing only. Never updated.
Xerox never released driver for scanning. As I know, Xerox did not help external developers in creating an open driver for this device.
I'm still using it because I can buy cheap aftermarket toners.
I will never buy Xerox. Neither for the home nor the office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grape Easyb to use, high quality
Have had this printer for 21/2 years. Excellent quality, works well with MS Word. Print quality and speed outstanding. Color printing also excellent, my only comment is that it will only print 8x10s.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Quick Review for Mac Users
I really want to believe in this product. It has great features and prints well, all in a nonintrusive footprint. But operations (buttons, menus, usability) are not elegant nor intuitive. Moreover, Xerox has been unapologetically, unprofessionally unconcerned about providing simple but critical driver updates in a timely manner for new versions of Mac OS--as in taking a year to do so. Finally, good luck with the wireless interface. Maybe there's just something unknowingly diabolical going on with my router, but I cannot get any of my Macs to see the printer on the network, despite it's being connected, no matter what I attempt. Again, I want to believe, but am sorely rewarded for trying. Poor usability, nonexistent support, and ongoing never-ending hassles just don't get it done. But I'll give one start for the features and print quality, and one more for hoping one day it will work just great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer color pictures are unbelievable
The only problem I had was having to wait for the driver for my Apple laptop . I solved the problem by converting to pdf and running flash drive through my Pc.
Now that I have your driver installed I can print directly from my Apple.
