"Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish, rubbish, rubbish!"

Right... The Xerox Phaser 6110... just binned mine. Why? It died.

Ok, day one, works ok (bought it second hand, only a couple of months old, it was made in Sept 2008 according to the label on the back).

Problem 1: Paper jams like mad

Problem 2: It says toner is low a couple of thousand pages before it runs out and refuses to print anymore

Problem 3: After 5 months it started making very strange noises, grinding, squealing, rubbing noises but prints the same as ever

Problem 4: When one colour runs out, printer refuses to print unless it's changed

Problem 5: When remanufactured toner put in, printer refuses to print as it's not genuine, if you remove the chip it will print for 2 or 3 pages before stopping again. You can only really use original toner

Problem 6: A year and a half from new and the print quality turns seriously faint and streaky, changed toner, didn't help, image transfer unit needs changing. Costs £190 so I didn't change it.

Problem 7: As it's very flimsy the front cover broke when I opened it gently as usual, the clips snapped off on the right hand side, wouldn't shut properly, had to tape it shut otherwise it wouldn't print

Problem 8: 2 years from new and it started to overheat when printing, plastic warped at back a bit. Smell of electrical burning

Problem 9: Refused to print unless 2 toners (1/4 full still, I checked) changed, and the image transfer unit. Total cost of new things: £250. How much did I pay for the printer? £70. As it was on its last legs anyway, and made some very loud rubbing and squeaking and grinding noises it was binned.

How was it?

The software wasn't too bad (had to download, didn't come with printer).

Printer nice and small, identical to Samsung CLP-300 (speaking of Samsung, the Xerox Phaser 6110 is identical to the Samsung CLX-2160 which also died on me! Both models are made by some other company then rebadged. Avoid all 4 models!).

The printer was quite heavy and the panel on top just had a warning light for each toner and a test page button, nothing else.

The cartridges are the easy-to-use cylindrical ones you just push in and the image transfer unit just pulls out and has a handle on top that you can pull out to take it for a walk (why else, I have no idea).

The quality:

Terrible. Fuzzy text, sometimes the toner didn't actually fuse, the fuser is just under the exit rollers so you can see the air distorting when you print it gets so hot, and steam comes out with every page it prints (yes, it gets too hot! The back of mine warped). Image printing - it gets the colours all wrong, completely wrong. Paper feed - it jams like no other! Noise: Noisy, really noisy!

And finally warm up times:

Very quick if your room is heated like a furnace. If you, like me, keep yours at 18 degrees or cooler it for some reason takes 6 or 7 minutes to warm up at least, then ends up burning the toner (yes, sometimes it doesn't fuse it, when the room is warm, but when the room is cold it burns the toner!)

AVOID!
______________________
Ok, in response to the comments (I'm STILL not allowed to comment yet!):

What I am trying to say is that this printer is very unreliable and costs more to run than to replace. It overheats, is noisy and refuses to print on anything past, say, 90gsm without jamming. It jams with 80gsm paper often anyway. I resorted to using original toner when it refused to print with remanufactured and I bought it when it was two months old and had a page count of 1500 pages (my laserjet 4550 has done over 200,000 pages and works like new)

    I am struggling to find out what you are really trying to say here!
  • sandemp published 13/11/2010
    Sorry but I really can't work out what your complaining for. You bought a second hand printer, used remanufactured cartridges and are then complaining it broke down after almost 2 years.
