The Xerox Phaser 6010 has an incredibly compact footprint considering it’s a color laser-class printer. In the past, the box would be two times (or more) the size of the Phaser 6010. Its dimensions in nonuse are approximately 16 x 12 x 9 inches and it weighs in at less than 25 lbs.

I have to say that I know most businesses probably don’t care about the “design” of their printer, as long as it’s functional, but I really like the Phaser 6010’s transparent blue output bin and paper tray. Because of its’ small stature, there is a relatively small control panel consisting of a two-line LCD, a four directional navigation pad and four quick keys. Next to the control panel is the aforementioned transparent blue 100-sheet output bin that folds out when in use.

The front of the Phaser 6010 folds out to reveal the 150-sheet paper tray and 10-sheet bypass tray while users can access all four standard capacity toner cartridges (CMYK) by pulling open the panel on the right side of the Phaser 6010. Find all connection ports as well as access to the paper path on the back of the Phaser 6010.
