I originally purchased the Phaser 8500 color laser printer and it lasted through 9,000 plus documents and the motherboard died. I then ordered a new Phaser 6500 color laser printer and it functioned through 6,000 plus documents. In immediate need, I then purchased a second Phaser 6500 and it made it though maybe 4,000 documents before the fuser died. I gave up on Xerox at that point and went back to inkjet printers.
I love the speed and the color. It does not print accurately on the page. I print from InDesign it is usually .0625 off, then you have to compensate in your design. If you send it out to a larger printer, then you have to remember to undo the compensation. Very disappointed. I take my old OKI any day.
After one month of limited use the printer started printing light grey text. Purchased new toner cartridge, but no change, still prints faded text. This issue is all over the internet. So far I have not been able to solve it, but have been wasting a lot of time looking for a solution.
This printer is everything I need and more. It was very easy to set up and so far has been flawless. Printing is so much faster than my old HP ink printer. I'm in heaven!
I owned a Phaser 6200 for probably 15 years, upgrading to a Phaser 6500 only because of a killer sales price. My old printer is now being used by someone else. It still works. The new 6500 has been great. I do wish I had gotten the duplex feature.
