Xerox Phaser 6180

The Good Fast; high-quality prints; decent per-page costs; toll-free phone support.

The Bad A little pricey; color printing could use some slight improvements.

The Bottom Line We really like the office-oriented Xerox 6180/N for its quick, high-quality prints, but the Lexmark C530dn provides more bang for your buck and slightly better quality.

Xerox Phaser 6180

Xerox Phaser 6180 series

The Xerox 6180/N is a gigantic, office-oriented color laser printer that may also fit into homes that have high-volume print needs. The base model, the $500 6180/N comes network ready, but for automatic double-sided printing, you'll have to upgrade to the 6180/DN, which costs $650. Both models produce quick prints--particularly in color--and boast impressive print quality. But the Lexmark C530dn is a better value: It includes a duplexer, is network ready and, at $500, costs less than the comparably equipped Xerox 6180/DN. The Lexmark and Xerox models are neck and neck in terms of print speed, but we found the Lexmark provides slightly better print quality.

Design
The Xerox Phaser 6180/N is a monster of a machine, better suited for offices than for homes. The all-white printer sits 15.7 inches wide, 19.4 inches deep, and 18.5 inches tall, and weighs a hefty 62 pounds. Color laser printers tend to be larger than monochrome printers, because the four individual toner cartridges (black, cyan, magenta, and yellow) are arranged in a single row.
