Summary: We love this printer, have had it now for two years without any issues. The solid ink is expensive but the yield is high. There are a couple different suppliers so be careful where you buy your ink. The inks are coded for certain kind of ink metered or U.S. consumer.
Summary: If you are considering purchasing this unit from Newegg, I would recommend having yourself evaluated by a mental health professional and being placed under observation for at least 24 hours. If you aren't crazy before you buy it, you certainly will be after.
Pros: I purchased the Xerox ColorQube 8700x to replace a failed Xerox Phaser 8560 MFP. The Phaser had provided years of service and the ColorQube 8700x was the recommended replacement. I'm a fan of the Xerox solid ink technology. Another positive is the ColorQube is made out of metal and plastic- gener...
Cons: The ColorQube 8700x failed catastrophically within two weeks of its arrival. It began as poor (ghosting) print quality and quickly degenerated into a failure of the machine to even turn on. The first visit from the Xerox repair tech was 24 hours in coming, and he was not able to repair it. We suf...
Summary: After 5 years, my 8560 seemed worn out and I decided to spring for the expensive replacement (double the price). For starters, the Colorqube is a beautiful machine and the control panel is gorgeous! Despite comments I've read here, the machine is fairly quiet - much quieter than the 8560.
Awesome printer, love this one, also have a phaser both great!!!

Summary: Really love my color cube, color is great, we have an hp printer and they don't even compare color wise. the color cube does a great job. Not anything negative I can say about it. Just plain ol love it.
Summary: We've already had a part replaced; the side paper tray has never worked; it's slower to print from our very old HP BUT we do enjoy the quality of the printing and ability to print 2-sided. Also ink is much more expensive than we anticipated and seems to disappear more quickly than we'd like.
Summary: Our machine was installed with no instructions on how to use it. Will not print when coping a 1/2 sheet of paper, keeps sending "Original size not detected" message. Xerox installed new software for this problem, worked for 1 week,now it's back to not coping small notes.
Summary: This machine is great! The print quality is superb and the machine is easy to use. It has great functionality from scanning to printing. I love the feature that I can program how a job is scanned by scanning multiple parts and blending then into one document.
