The 6250 proves itself to be one of the best colour laser printers on the market for the small- to medium-sized business, with initial outlay and running costs that are very reasonable (20 cents per colour print) and performance that is super fast. It is an A4 printer that can print on stock ranging from plain to glossy, and connectivity can be via the built-in parallel, USB 2.0 or 10/100 Ethernet ports.
The 6250 features a standard input tray of 500 sheets, and a 100-sheet multi-purpose tray is also provided. The small LCD screen on the printer allows the user to easily configure the printers settings via the logical menu system and the driver program allows the quality of printing to be specified, from Draft to Photo. Double-sided printing is supported via the installed duplexor. The warranty is one year on site.
Four individual toner cartridges reside atop the unit and are very easily replaceable. Standard and high-capacity toners are available and all information on the consumables can be found at the Web site below. We tested this printer via a network switch and had no problems at all during installation. It printed out a 25-page instruction manual (PDF format) in only 1 min 18 sec and in double-sided mode the same document completed in 1 min 53 sec. Document print quality was excellent and photo output was more than acceptable.
