Summary: I was really disappointed with my purchase of the Xerox WorkCentre M940 InkJet Printer. The biggest reason was for its incompatibility with Windows XP, even though they offer drivers for that version. I loaded both from the disk and online and the work center sw, which manages the printer crapped out with communication errors to the printer. Basically I'm going with HP or Dell. The only help I recieved from Xerox was to have a rep call me to buy a new one. Not a chance.
Summary: This machine worked okay at first, but then the colors began to streak and fail, and long after the color printing capability died, the machine still occasionally ran out of colored ink. This was a real inconvenience because all I used it for was a B&W copier, scanner, and B&W printer. This past week, it ran out of magenta ink, and now refuses to print, even in black and white.
Summary: I can't believe I wasted $200 for the machine and $72 to replace all print cartridges and have not been able to print a single document. I'll never buy another Xerox product as long as I live. Burn me once shame on you... Burn me twice, I'm an Idiot!!
Summary: I have had this machine since 1999 and it has not fail. Used for desktopp publishing the key is not to leave the cartridges go totally empty. I find I get 750 sheets from the black cartridge and over the expected limits on the heads. It is used primarily as a copier or attached to a sytem running win 98 SE. For the money I found it to be very practical. I wish Xerox would continue to make inkjet multi-function machines like this.
Summary: Certainly not worth the asking price, if bought on Amazon. Get it for $10-$15 (plus shipping) on e-bay from customers who lost patience to make it work. This a re-bardged Sharp product with Xerox software and probably firmware. Xerox got out of inkjet business two years ago and provides no phone support or warranty.
Summary: To be fair, I don't know how the unit works because the one I received from AllStarsOnline did not work at all. It was being sold "as is". It never powered up out of the box. I guess I should have known by the inexpensive price and the unwillingness of the seller to test the unit. Nevertheless, the seller did send all cables, accessories and manuals for the unit. They even included a couple extra print cartridges.
Summary: When the printer actually works I get amazing photo-quality prints and pictures. The problem is with the print heads. They tend to dry out rapidly and/or get clogged. If you can't unclog them you must keep replacing them at least once a year. The print heads are costly and are not covered by extended warranties - which I purchased for this printer for these kinds of reasons.
