The Phaser 6140 is a laser color printer with networking capability. It can print color sheets at the maximum resolution of 600×600 dpi and works with almost all operating systems like Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Mac. You can go through the options and modify the printer settings like paper type, paper size, USB set up and network set up through the control panel. The control panel has a menu key, a menu navigation key, a confirmation key, a cancellation key and a power saver button. With the cancellation button you can stop an ongoing printing in case of errors like low ink or paper jam. There is a sturdy paper tray in front that can consume 250 sheets to 500 sheets. It is well-made and caters to variety of sheet types – plain paper, matte, glossy and envelopes in legal and A4 size. There is a manual paper feeder in the lid of the tray to put paper without even opening the paper tray.

The first page took 15 sec, and the second around 20 sec. The black and white text prints registered an average speed of 20 pages per minute with first page taking 10 sec and the second around 14 sec. Phaser 6140 gives very good and vibrant photo prints. The text quality is also good and compact, without showing any spreading or ink blot. It is network enabled through Ethernet, allowing the administrator direct access to it and get instant information in case of any malfunction. There is a sleep mode button which can be switched on to use the power saver mode. The —switch button is on the left side and USB port with a power socket behind it. Other laser printers with similar features include the Lexmark C530 dn, but they’re costlier.

Bottomline: Good choice for small workgroups wanting high-quality color printing.
