Pros: -This was the best value laser printer that printed color and can accept off-brand ink cartridges which are $16 v. $50 (xerox brand) to print 1000 pages
-Laser looks great
Cons: -Sometimes prints on cardstock just fine, sometimes leaves black spots (may be the off-brand ink?)
-I have to keep mine off and turn it on when I want to use it. If it is on and not used, it stops talking to the computer
Pros: Everything you could want in a printer for a one-person office.
Cons: Toner cost
Overall Review: I had to update the firmware to get this to print from Photoshop. Via USB this was easy, just follow instructions on their website.
Pros: I am using OpenBSD 6.5.
To get this laser printer running over WiFi do:
0) Connect the Xerox Phaser 6022 to your wireless access point. I did
this using a spare windows computer. I suppose you can do this
through the little setup screen, on top of the laser printer.
1) Install the CUPS package.
2) Add the following line to your /etc/rc.conf.local file:
pkg_scripts=cupsd. Reboot the computer to make sure CUPS is
3) From the CD that came with my Phaser 6022, I removed the file
4) This is an archive file. It contains your *.ppd. Do
$ ar x xerox-phaser-6022_1.0-22_all.deb
(See man (1) ar)
5) After extraction you will see data.tar.gz. That tarball contains
the Xerox_Phaser_6022.ppd. Get the *.ppd with
$ tar zxvf data.tar.gz
6) Move Xerox_Phaser_6022.ppd to /root.
7) Start a web browser and point it to "http://localhost:631".
8) Select add a printer and login. I had to use my user account to
login. Logging in as root would not work. You CUPS will probe
your wireless network and you should see an address like
192.168.1.X, where X can be any number. It will also identify the
printer as Xerox Phaser 6022.
9) Since there is no entry for Xerox, load the
10) Complete the CUPS setup and you are ready to print
You have to use the absolute path name
/usr/local/bin/lpr, /usr/local/bin/lprm, /usr/local/bin/lpq and
/usr/local/bin/lp to print with CUPS.
LibreOffice prints with out modification.
You can print photos and graphics (*jpeg, *.png , etc) with
xpdf reguires the following line in the .xpdfrc:
# Set the default PostScript file or command.
# Set the default PostScript paper size -- this can be letter, legal,
# A4, or A3. You can also specify a paper size as width and height
# (in points).
Cons: None to think of. Works like a charm on OpenBSD
Overall Review: If you want to use OpenBSD as a desktop then this Xerox Laser printer works well. This is a great little printer
Pros: Nice compact footprint with lots of features. It's hard to tell the difference between this and my high quality very expensive monochrome laser printer. Resolution is clean and crisp doesn't leave the paper heavy or distorted even on full color full page printing.
Cons: On device setup of the device is a little cumbersome. Has a web enabled setup once you assign your printer an IP on the network but not all functions save or change the settings like it should. I have yet to get the direct connection to work from any of my android devices. The software crashed my Win7 64 bit OS that cost me hours of startup hassles (system wouldn't boot after installation) and system restore which finally cleared the problem. Ended up having to let the device manager install the printer and couldn't use the included software. They should offer a note that the software isn't Win7 64 compatible.
Overall Review: My printer was delivered on it's side and possibly shipped that way. The black and yellow ink both leaked causing a real mess of the printer I had to clean up before use. I hope if xerox reads this they'll step up to the plate and send me an ink supply kit for work, hassle, and towels they cost me not to mention how much ink spilled and can never be used. Seems like they didn't even consider spilled ink during shipping.
Pros: Wired, WIFI, or WIFI Direct network interfaces to choose from.
Color Lazer printer
Works right out of the box.
Firmware update was as easy as running a program setup menu.
Is working great with my windows 7 64-bit computer.
Cons: Will only work WIFI, WIFI direct, or wired network. Does not do 2 or all at the same time.
Web interface works correctly, but lists every option even though only certain ones will work.
EX: Can configure WIFI and wired networks, but only able to use one or other not both. Then printer clears config for unused interface. So if you switch back over, settings are gone.
Some hassle to setup, but once running right is good.
Overall Review: Comes with USB cable, driver disk, manuals, and an extra part.
This extra part is for the paper tray. The tray is able to extend longer to allow A4 paper size and the PART is a cover to help protect the paper and tray that sticks out in front of the printer.
I have tested each function: WIFI, WIFI direct, and wired networking and all do work. I even connected WIFI direct to my android device and it works.
It would have been nice if Xerox allowed the ability to use all 3 interfaces at the same time though.
Pros: I researched many different printers before choosing Xerox and Newegg. This printer software installed in minutes on my Windows 7 systems (I have 3 systems). I was able to actually print a picture on plain paper that was excellent. That is the quality I was looking for and it met every expectation. Also has the smallest footprint of all the color printers in my price range I could find. Highly recommend this printer and Newegg. Print speed is also excellent and meets all the specifications.
Cons: It does do duplex printing, but it requires you to manually remove the first sides and place the output (consisting of all the side 1's at one time) in the tray to print the second side. This is a bit of a pain, but there is no duplexer to fail later. So not all that bad.
Overall Review: I would highly recommend this printer to anyone for small office or home use.
Pros: Works fine, almost totally without issue. Set it up connected to USB, do all the printing using WiFi. Even prints without issue from my wife's 7th generation Kindle Fire HD. Has a good history with aftermarket supplies. Don't have to worry anymore about smearing of inkjet output.
Cons: Gosh, I had to cycle power on it once. I had to figure out where the extra part goes on the paper tray. On a more serious note, installation of the drivers seemed far from intuitive to me. Yeah, I used the ones I d/l from Xerox.
Overall Review: Even at the regular price this is a gem. Eggsaver? C'mon, folks! My wife is printing recipes from Pinterest via Kindle with it, and they don't smear in the kitchen no matter _what_ she does to them. What other color printer can do that for these prices? I thought so...
Pros: Nice graphics, fast output, easy hookup, compact. Good colors.
Toner is a powder, no ink to dry out and clog nozzles.
Edit: I printed some photographs on Canon glossy photo paper, which isn't on the approved list. The photos, in my opinion, came out great.
Cons: Printed sections are shiny/waxy. Odd on paper that has no gloss.
Actual resolution is 600x600 dpi, the higher resolution found in the description is interpolated.
Controls are on the flat top, difficult to use if the printer is placed high, as I have mine on a shelf above my monitors.
Toner cartridges are far too expensive.
Overall Review: Well worth the money. In response to someone else's question, that extra piece in the box is the cover for the exposed end of the feed tray when expanded to hold 8.5x14" (legal size) paper.
I'm using the USB connection, and the results are well worth any picked nits.
