Xerox’s LED-Array VersaLink C500/DN Color Printer Prints Well, and Inexpensvely

  • A review of the Xerox VersaLink C500/DN Color Printer at PCMag.PROS:

    Fast. Excellent print quality. Competitive running costs. High-yield toner cartridge. Huge paper expansion capacity. Strong security features. Several upgrade options.

  • CONS

    Purchase price somewhat high. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct cost extra.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    A fast, expandable color laser-class printer, the Xerox VersaLink C500/DN prints well and with competitive running costs.

The Xerox VersaLink C500/DN Color Printer ($769) deploys light-emitting diode (LED) arrays, rather than actual lasers, to etch print images on to paper prior to applying toner. The C500/DN is close in print speed, print quality, and ongoing running costs to the lower-priced Editors’ Choice Brother HL-L8360CDW, as well as the pricier Dell Color Smart Printer S5840cdn,  another of our top picks. (Both the Brother and Dell models use actual lasers.) But it’s a little more expensive to buy and use than some of its competition, keeping it from earning an Editors’ Choice nod. Even so, the Xerox C500/DN is an excellent standalone color laser-class printer for medium-size offices and workgroups that need to print thousands of pages each month.
