Product Overview

The WorkCentre 6027 joins its single-function sibling, the Phaser 6022 Color Printer, in Xerox’s color printer lineup. At $429, it prints at 18ppm in both black and color. Printing, copying, scanning and faxing are all standard. It’s intended for small offices.

Its processor speed is 525MHz and memory is 512MB, not expandable. First-page-out-time in color is 13 seconds. The enhanced dpi resolution is up to 1,200 x 2,400 via the Hi-Q LED engine. With the PANTONE color technology, users can make last-minute color adjustments to the print.

The WorkCentre 6027 includes a 4.3″ color touchscreen with shortcuts to common workflows.

There is a one-year onsite warranty that is standard with the printer. Companies can earn free service concierge with Xerox’s eConcierge program. Extended warranty options are available. As with its other devices, Xerox provides its Total Satisfaction Guarantee.

The WorkCentre 6027 is a compact and quiet device good for small businesses that need color printing and multifunctionality.


PCL, PostScript and direct PDF are supported. USB, Ethernet and Wi-Fi is standard. Mobile printing is also standard via Apple AirPrint, Xerox PrintBack, Google Cloud Print, or Mopria Print Service Plug-in.

Standard input is a 150-sheet tray. It accepts up to 8.5″ x 14″ paper. There are no additional paper trays. The output tray consists of 100 sheets. The monthly duty cycle is 30,000 pages. There is also a 15-sheet automatic document feeder.

Other print features include auto screening, N-up, custom page sizes, scaling, reduce/enlarge, draft mode and collation.

Users can scan to the following destinations: network, email, WSD, WIA, and USB. File formats include PDF, single and multi-page TIFF, and JPEG.

Faxing utilizes a 33.6Kbps modem with JBIG compression. Fax features include secure fax, junk fax filter and group faxing.

Security features include secure HTTPS, secure IPP, SSL, IP filtering, IPv6, LDAP/address book authentication, and WEP/WPA for wireless security.

We’ve calculated the cost per page at 3.8 cents in black and 20.3 cents in color. It’s pretty high, but not out of line for printers targeted at small businesses.

The print speed will be too slow for offices other than small businesses. Also, there are no additional paper tray options, and duplexing isn’t offered.
