13 Reasons For for Choosing the Xerox VersaLink C400

Colour Printing

The Xerox VersaLink C400 supports colour printing (as do the Canon MF216N, the Lexmark CX410DTE and the Ricoh C250FWB), but the HP LaserJet M506DN does not support this feature. More ...

'Colour Printing' denotes whether the laser printer has the ability to print in colour, or whether it's limited to black & white.

Wi-Fi

The Xerox VersaLink C400 supports Wi-Fi, whereas the Canon MF216N, the HP LaserJet M506DN, the Lexmark CX410DTE and the Ricoh C250FWB do not support this feature. More ...

'Wi-Fi' denotes whether the laser printer has a support for wireless communications or not.

Wi-Fi support on a printer allows you to easily print your documents from wherever you are - no wired connection needed.

Direct Printing (PictBridge)

The Xerox VersaLink C400 supports Direct printing (PictBridge), and so does the Ricoh C250FWB, but the Canon MF216N, the HP LaserJet M506DN and the Lexmark CX410DTE do not. More ...

Direct printing (also known as 'Pictbridge') is a system to allow you print photos directly from your camera via a USB connection, with no need to connect via a computer first.

Direct photo printing is very helpful, since it makes printing your photos far easier - simply connect your camera to your printer and away you go, no downloading or messing with PC uploads necessary!

Touchscreen

The Xerox VersaLink C400 has a touchscreen, and so does the HP LaserJet M506DN, but the Canon MF216N, the Lexmark CX410DTE and the Ricoh C250FWB do not. More ...

'Touchscreen' indicates whether the printer has a touchscreen or not.

A touchscreen makes it far easier to control the standard functions of the printer, rather than having to rely on buttons.

0.9dB Quieter Printing Noise Level

The Xerox VersaLink C400 is a 53.1 print noise level laser printer, whereas the HP LaserJet M506DN is a 54dB print noise level laser printer (0.9dB louder). More ...

"noise level' denotes how loud the printer is when it's in use, measured in decibels (dB).

The quieter the noise level of the printer, the less intrusive it'll be to use.

Bigger Standard Output Capacity

The Xerox VersaLink C400 is a 250 standard output capacity laser printer, and so does the HP LaserJet M506DN. That's 150 sheets bigger than the Canon MF216N (100 Sheets) and 100 sheets bigger than the Lexmark CX410DTE and the Ricoh C250FWB (150 Sheets). More ...

'Standard Output Capacity' indicates how many printed sheets of paper the output tray of the printer can hold before it starts to overflow.

A bigger output capacity means that the printer can print more/bigger jobs at once, and won't need to be looked after or the paper collected mid-job.

Bigger Standard Input Capacity

The Xerox VersaLink C400 is a 700 standard input capacity laser printer. That's 450 sheets bigger than the Canon MF216N and the Lexmark CX410DTE (250 Sheets), 50 sheets bigger than the HP LaserJet M506DN (650 Sheets) and 449 sheets bigger than the Ricoh C250FWB (251 Sheets). More ...

'Standard Input Capacity' indicates the largest amount of paper that can be safely loaded into the printer at once.

Higher input capacities mean that you will be able to print more before having to refill the tray.

Better Kagoo Score

The Xerox VersaLink C400 has received a Kagoo Score of 89, but the Canon MF216N scored 86, the HP LaserJet M506DN scored 88 and the Ricoh C250FWB scored 87.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this laser printer.

Newer by 19 Months

The Xerox VersaLink C400 was released three years ago, but the Canon MF216N was released four years ago, the HP LaserJet M506DN was released four years ago, the Lexmark CX410DTE was released four years ago and the Ricoh C250FWB was released four years ago

Two More Awards

The Xerox VersaLink C400 has received 2 awards from expert review sites, however the Canon MF216N has received 1 award and the HP LaserJet M506DN has received no awards.

Better Expert Reviews

Based on 3 reviews, the Xerox VersaLink C400 has an average expert review score of 100%, but the Canon MF216N has an average rating of 80% (based on 1 review), the HP LaserJet M506DN has an average rating of 87% (based on 3 reviews), the Lexmark CX410DTE has an average rating of 94% (based on 8 reviews) and the Ricoh C250FWB has an average rating of 82% (based on 9 reviews).

Marginally Better User Reviews

Based on 1 review, the Xerox VersaLink C400 has an average user review score of 100%, but the HP LaserJet M506DN has an average rating of 97% (based on 6 reviews), the Lexmark CX410DTE has an average rating of 94% (based on 7 reviews) and the Ricoh C250FWB has an average rating of 87% (based on 84 reviews).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Xerox VersaLink C400

Only 600 X 600 DPI DPI

The Xerox VersaLink C400 is 600 x 600 DPI DPI, but the Canon MF216N, the HP LaserJet M506DN and the Lexmark CX410DTE are all 1200 x 1200 DPI and the Ricoh C250FWB is 2400 x 600 DPI. More ...

'Maximum Resolution' denotes the largest resolution that the laser printer is capable of printing at.

A larger resolution means that the print-out is comprised of more pixels, meaning greater detail and a higher-quality print.

Slower Print Speed

The Xerox VersaLink C400 is a 36 print speed laser printer. That's 13ppm faster than the Canon MF216N (23ppm), 7ppm slower than the HP LaserJet M506DN (43ppm), 6ppm faster than the Lexmark CX410DTE (30ppm) and 16ppm faster than the Ricoh C250FWB (20ppm). More ...

'Print Speed' measures how long it takes the laser printer to print a single black & white A4 page at normal quality.

A faster print speed means the laser printer is more efficient and can manage larger print jobs faster.

Does Not Support Duplex Printing

The Xerox VersaLink C400 does not support duplex printing, whereas the Canon MF216N, the HP LaserJet M506DN, the Lexmark CX410DTE and the Ricoh C250FWB do. More ...

'Duplex Printing' indicates whether the printer has the capability of printing on both sides of a page, rather than just one.

Duplex printing is very helpful for saving paper, and automatic duplex printing means not having to turn the paper over manually then re-insert it to print on the other side.

Slower Time to First Page

Xerox VersaLink C400 is 12 time to first page (black, normal). That's 6s slower than the Canon MF216N (6s), 6.1s slower than the HP LaserJet M506DN (5.9s), 1.5s slower than the Lexmark CX410DTE (10.5s) and 2s faster than the Ricoh C250FWB (14s). More ...

How long it takes the printer to go from first being powered on to being able to print its first page.

A faster boot up time means the printer is more efficient, and you won't have to wait minutes for it to start up when you want to print.

More Expensive by $146

The Xerox VersaLink C400 is $146 more expensive than the Canon MF216N and $82 more expensive than the Ricoh C250FWB.

Worse Brand

Xerox laser printers have an average rating of only 76.7%, however Canon has an average rating of 79.9%, HP has an average rating of 88.6%, Lexmark has an average rating of 95% and Ricoh has an average rating of 79.9%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the VersaLink C400 in the US is $325.00 and in total we found 5 prices for it.

'Duplex Printing' indicates whether the printer has the capability of printing on both sides of a page, rather than just one.

Duplex printing is very helpful for saving paper, and automatic duplex printing means not having to turn the paper over manually then re-insert it to print on the other side.

8.1s Faster Time to First Page

HP LaserJet M506DN is 5.9 time to first page (black, normal), but the Canon MF216N is a 6s time to first page (black, normal) laser printer (0.1s slower), the Lexmark CX410DTE is an 10.5s time to first page (black, normal) laser printer (4.6s slower), the Ricoh C250FWB is a 14s time to first page (black, normal) laser printer (8.1s slower) and the Xerox VersaLink C400 is a 12s time to first page (black, normal) laser printer (6.1s slower). More ...

How long it takes the printer to go from first being powered on to being able to print its first page.

A faster boot up time means the printer is more efficient, and you won't have to wait minutes for it to start up when you want to print.

Touchscreen

The HP LaserJet M506DN has a touchscreen (as does the Xerox VersaLink C400), but the Canon MF216N, the Lexmark CX410DTE and the Ricoh C250FWB do not have this feature. More ...

'Touchscreen' indicates whether the printer has a touchscreen or not.

A touchscreen makes it far easier to control the standard functions of the printer, rather than having to rely on buttons.

150 Sheets Bigger Standard Output Capacity

The HP LaserJet M506DN has a standard output capacity of 250 (as does the Xerox VersaLink C400), however the Canon MF216N is only a 100 Sheets standard output capacity laser printer (150 sheets smaller) and the Lexmark CX410DTE and the Ricoh C250FWB are both only 150 Sheets standard output capacity laser printers (100 sheets smaller). More ...

'Standard Output Capacity' indicates how many printed sheets of paper the output tray of the printer can hold before it starts to overflow.

A bigger output capacity means that the printer can print more/bigger jobs at once, and won't need to be looked after or the paper collected mid-job.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the HP LaserJet M506DN

Does Not Support Colour Printing

The HP LaserJet M506DN does not support colour printing, whereas the Canon MF216N, the Lexmark CX410DTE, the Ricoh C250FWB and the Xerox VersaLink C400 support this feature. More ...

'Colour Printing' denotes whether the laser printer has the ability to print in colour, or whether it's limited to black & white.

2% Louder Printing Noise Level

The HP LaserJet M506DN is a 54 print noise level laser printer. That's 0.9dB louder than the Xerox VersaLink C400 (53.1dB). More ...

The quieter the noise level of the printer, the less intrusive it'll be to use.

50 Sheets Smaller Standard Input Capacity

The HP LaserJet M506DN has a standard input capacity of 650, whereas the Canon MF216N and the Lexmark CX410DTE are both 250 Sheets standard input capacity laser printers (400 sheets smaller), the Ricoh C250FWB is a 251 Sheets standard input capacity laser printer (399 sheets smaller) and the Xerox VersaLink C400 is a 700 Sheets standard input capacity laser printer (50 sheets bigger). More ...

Higher input capacities mean that you will be able to print more before having to refill the tray.

Direct printing (also known as 'Pictbridge') is a system to allow you print photos directly from your camera via a USB connection, with no need to connect via a computer first.
