Now, let’s look at some of the key features that come with the VersaLink C620 printer:

Touchscreen Interface and App Gallery

Like all modern VersaLink and AltaLink printers, the Xerox VersaLink C620 has a customizable five-inch color touchscreen tablet. The intuitive layout makes it easy to print and do more tasks in a few taps.

You can personalize the user interface to your business’s goals by choosing from the numerous Xerox App Gallery applications. A few examples include:

The touchscreen interface and app gallery are powered by Xerox’s ConnectKey technology. This innovative ecosystem lets you download and customize your workflows. With the multi-function version of this device, you can convert hard-copy records into digital cloud-based documents and even print to your printer from your smartphone.        

Printer Security     

The VersaLink C620 has a comprehensive four-point approach to security that helps prevent, detect, and protect against cyberattacks from all entry points.        

According to Xerox’s website, these include:     

  • Network intrusion and data transmission    
  • Protection from unauthorized access    
  • Stringent data encryption     
  • Added security to individual documents    

One of Xerox’s security measures is a comprehensive Firmware Verification test that runs when you activate your printer. Xerox adds another security layer by having external partnerships with organizations like Cisco. Cisco’s Identity Services Engine (ISE) detects and classifies all other Xerox devices on the network and is available on all VersaLink machines.          

Cyber security is an increasingly pressing issue. It’s crucial to know what security options companies offer before making a purchasing decision. To learn more about printer security, read these blogs:

2 Pros of the Xerox VersaLink C620        

To appreciate the benefits of buying the VersaLink C620, let’s look at some of the key advantages that come with the device:

1. High Print Quality    

The C620's print resolution is 1200 x 1200 dpi, allowing it to print high-quality color documents. Its ability to handle various media types, such as card stock and glossy card stock, makes this printer great for projects that need prints with vibrant color and fine detail.

The high print resolution also applies to both black-and-white prints, resulting in sharp text.

2. Compact Permanent Office Solution

The VersaLink C620 delivers impressive print quality with a compact size and space-saving design. With a height of only 16.2” and weighing 71 lbs., this machine can fit just about anywhere. The A4 machine takes up less space but gets just as much done.

The C620 is a powerful machine that can easily fit under a counter or on a desk, making it ideal for smaller businesses or home offices.

2 Cons of the Xerox VersaLink C620        

Now that we’ve covered some of the advantages of the VersaLink C620 let’s review a couple of negatives you should consider before purchasing:      

1. Doesn’t Support Larger Paper Sizes

One downside of the VersaLink C620 is that it can’t print 11 x 17 (tabloid) or paper sizes larger than 8.5” x 14”. If you need larger prints, then this machine is not for you.  

If you’re looking for a color printer that can handle larger paper sizes, the VersaLink C7000 Color Printer is a good option. However, this machine will be more expensive ($1,799) because it has advanced features.

2. Single-Function Solution Only     

Another notable con to the VersaLink C620 is that it’s a single-function machine, which means it can only print. 

If you’re looking for a multifunction color printer, consider the VersaLink C625. This model has many of the same abilities as the C620 model, but in addition to printing, it can also copy, scan, and fax.  

For more information on multifunction or all-in-one printers, read these blogs:     

Xerox VersaLink C620 Cost    

As previously stated, the base cost of the VersaLink C620 is around $949. This doesn’t include optional upgrades, installation & setup costs, or maintenance plans that you can include upon purchase of your machine.      

Another thing to consider is that you’ll have to purchase an additional Wireless Network Adapter (Wi-Fi Kit) to enable Wi-Fi for the VersaLink C620 model. The Wi-Fi accessory is priced at about $69.99.

The VersaLink C620 is a more affordable choice than other multifunction printers, such as the ones in the AltaLink B8100 series. Despite this, purchasing a printer like C620 is still not cheap.

Some vendors may offer trade-ins and the option to lease your printer rather than purchase it outright. Leasing a printer breaks down its total cost into more affordable monthly payments. For more information on consumer purchasing options, read these blogs:         

Who Is the Xerox VersaLink C620 a Good Fit for?          

The VersaLink C620 would be a good fit for:          

  • Small-to-medium-sized businesses with workgroups of 5-20 users that need a color printer with a sizeable monthly print volume and a requirement for high-quality output.     
  • Those looking to purchase an efficient yet compact printer with advanced technological features, such as a touchscreen and App Gallery.  
  • Those looking to make a long-term printing investment for their workplace.         

If you belong to one of these groups, the VersaLink C620 might suit you. However, you should carefully assess your unique printing requirements with a business consultant before buying.

Who Is the Xerox VersaLink C620 Not a Good Fit for?     

The VersaLink C620 would not be a good fit for:       

  • Businesses that require an all-in-one or MFP option that can print, copy, scan, and fax.  
  • Those who require larger paper-size handling capabilities.   
  • Businesses that need a machine to handle a large print volume (over 30,000 pages per month) 

If you fall into one of these categories, this model is not for you. To help you choose the right model, read our blog on how to choose a printer for your budget and business needs.
