If you are hoping to start your 2020 with a brand new printer, we have curated a list of the best Xerox Multifunction printers on the market right now.
1. Xerox WorkCentre 6515/DNI Color Multifunction Printer
It a tough task making a multifunctional laser printer look eye-catching, but Xerox did its best with this model. Minimal clutter and a few curves in the design make it look somewhat smaller than what it is, while the blue plastic and cream color differentiate it from its pack.
It delivers fast scanning with previews loading at 11 seconds, with an A4 300 dpi page scan averaging 25 seconds.

Right below its touch display, you will find a USB port for all your walk-up functions. The machine comes with a multi-purpose cassette, as well.
Although it is rated for 50 sheets, it’s a pity that its main cassette can only hold 250 sheets. The WorkCentre has been on the market for a while, but the setup program it runs on has aged poorly.
While the software may install without problems, you may find that the duplex print option is greyed out on the PostScript and PCL. Often, the issue is that the duplexer may not be detected as you install software, but you can turn it on by adjusting printing properties.
Its intuitive display panel can pivot through 90 degrees, although there are times it may feel like a victim of its sophistication. Besides, it takes longer to boot up, load up, and display the menu. The machine is as fast as some top quality printers on the market.
