The Xerox Phaser 6010N is a color laser printer that prints at a reported 12 pages per minute in color and 15 in black and white. In addition, you can share it with a small workgroup via Ethernet. But with its relatively minimal features, is the Xerox Phaser 6010N worth its $299 price tag? The experts have spoken, and the feedback is generally positive.

M. David Stone of PCMag.com gives the Xerox Phaser 6010N a solid 3.5 out of 5. On one hand, toner cost per page is high. On the other hand, it’s compact, reasonably fast, and output quality is good.

PCWorld.com gives the Xerox Phaser 6010N an average 3 stars out of 5. Output is good, and it’s easy to use. But once again, cost per page is high, and there’s no auto-duplexer.

Last but not least, Sarah Meyer of PrinterComparison.com gives the Xerox Phaser 6010N an impressive 4 stars out of 5. She agrees with the other reviewers that it’s compact, easy to use, and offers very good output quality. But like the PCWorld.com review, she does wish the printer had an auto-duplexer.

So overall, while the Xerox Phaser 6010N may not have the biggest set of features or the lowest cost per page, it performs pretty well. Couple that with the compact size and you have a device that should fit right into a home or small office environment.
