This product has some great features for the small or home office

I have owned this machine for about 3 years. It was inexpensive and it is a color laser printer. I also own a more expensive and much older Xerox color laser printer. It is by far a Superior machine but the parts including the toner forced me to buy the C500. This newer machine is much smaller and therefore easier to move. The toner is still very spendy and not the same type as my former machine. Because of the newer toner the color printing is not as crisp or pretty but for most of my purposes this machine works nicely and it did not cost what the bigger color laser cost. Since my purchase time the Xerox site has changed their customer service connection and I find that very frustrating and wish that their customer service was more customer available. That is the major negative which now would apply to all their products. I have used Xerox products in these two machines totaling over 25 years!! I prefer Xerox and hope to see them make some changes back to more personal and available customer service.

Great Product

I highly recommend this printer. It is quiet, quick and efficient!

Expensive to maintain

Typically Xerox makes a great product, but this is not one of them. I have ink bleed onto the paper and the Xerox guy could not fix it. Also the replacement costs for the ink alone exceed the price of a new printer. Not to mention all the other maintenance items needed to use it.

This product is middle of the road in many areas for my needs

I have a much older Xerox color laser printer which I still own but the toner has gotten more expensive than buying a new printer. The older printer is the best ever .The Versa 500 is very easy to use. The ouput time is great, the number of pages printed is certainly adequate a for home office use. However the toner is a different type than the older printer so the colors are washed out to a degree and not as clean or accurate to the actual colors I want printed. Toner is still very expensive so it would be nice to get better quality of colors printed. I will not buy in this line of printer again. I love working with Xerox but recenty they went to call back system or online help only and that is very discouraging while that is not a printer issue it certainly is a customer service issue. I would prefer to stay with Xerox but that change alone is asking me to explore other options for both the color laser printer which is a must for my work & the needed customer service to be able to call in for help. I still prefer Xerox as a company to support. The versa is fine for a mid range color laser printer and if that meets ones needs the price of it certainly a good choice.

Nice printer with cool features...

This is my first time using this product and the only complaint I have is how many times you have to change the media type. Other than that, it's GREAT!!!

Versalink C500 poor service

I purchased this machine on March 26, 2021. On March 30, 2021 had technical support help me install it to my computer. Upon following directions I got a paper jam that could not be pulled out. The technician requested that a service technician contact me to repair the problem. He said I would be contacted that day for an appointment. It never happened. I called on March 31st was told I would be contacted that day NO CONTACT I called on April 1st was told I would be contacted that day for an appointment NO CONTACT I was told they had the wrong zip code when it was checked everything was correct. AN EXCUSE I called on April 5th and was told it was a high priority and wsould be contacted that day. NO CONTACT Today is April 6th and still NO CONTACT POOR SERVICE or NO SERVICE I have contacted service multiple times NO RESPONSE
