We reviewed Xerox 6015B in our testing centre for its various features and found that its an awesome machine at this price though it has a few cons too.
Laser printers are generally much faster than Inkjets, but this model is comparatively slow to other laser printers. We found the printer is a bit slower than its claimed speed by Xerox. We got around 9 ppm for colored prints and 12 ppm for black print outs. The main reason for slower speed is quite a bit of preparation before starting. Though speed is slightly less than our expectations but the good part we found in our speed test is that there were no paper-jams at all. Paper jams is a commom issue in laser printers and no paper jams means time saving.
Print quality for both colored and mono prints was awesome. It comes with a pre-loaded C,M,Y,K toners and the reliable Hi-Q LED print engine outputs very sharp, crispy and pleasing prints. Copying results were also satisfactory, though they do not yield as great quality as the printer.
Scanning with Xerox 5015B is pretty easy and just takes a couple of clicks. You can even scan straight to your USB device. Scanning quality is acceptable.
We have seen many noisy and annoying printers but this all in one has a reasonable noise level and does not drive you mad with any irritating noises.
Cost per page:
The 4 toners that comes with Xerox 6015B are only half-loaded and should be sufficient for 500 prints. The toners are standard in size and we found in our calculations that it comes to around 2.7p cost per page for black prints and 12.8p cost per page for colored print outs. The operating cost here looks like higher than its counterparts, but the printers with lower cost per page also have a higher price tag.
This is the best part, the 6015B multifunction is available for just £228.33 at Misco.co.uk which makes it quite cheaper and affordable in comparison to other laser all-in-ones of its class.
Pros and Cons:
Great print quality
Low noise levels
Comparatively high consumable cost
No ethernet/ wifi connectivity
The Xerox WorkCentre 6015B is an entry level small size Color Laser All-in-One from Xerox. It produces great quality prints but with slightly slow speed. It comes with a cheap price tag but higher per page cost. We highly recommend this printer for small office or home office setup just because of its ease of use, quality and affordability.
