Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my Xerox 8550 printer that finally failed after many years. Of course Xerox's marketing department makes sure that no two printers can use the same ink. So I had to sell my old cubes and buy new ones. Since the ink is so expensive, I was used to buying genuine xerox ink from various suppliers on the internet.
Summary: I've been using the solid ink printers for a number of years with the business. It started with the purchases of the Phaser 860's and continues with my 8500's and my Colorqube 8870. I made the mistake of purchasing an 8570 and found out the hard way the amount of ink cost to operate the printer. The initial purchase price for an 8570 is very attractive. But don't be fooled your savings will be eaten away quickly as you purchase ink for this machine.
Summary: They are a lot better than the 8560 both in ink usage and not breaking down as often. The Xerox warranty is excellent and should be renewed every year..parts plus labour are too expensive to be without a contract!!

Summary: and I cannot manually change the tray to pull from tray 1. Even though I can select it and the screen shows that it will pull from tray 1, it will pull from tray 2. This has ruined many print jobs and has waisted much ink. I have searched the support menu online and if you take a look at that, there isn't much there. For that reason, I would not recommend the 8570.

Summary: When I purchased this ColorQube 8570DN, I ordered, what I calculated to be, a year's worth of ink sticks, based on Xerox's claim of 4400 pages per box of 2 sticks and the number of pages I typically print in a year. In less than 4 months, with fewer than 5000 pages printed, I have gone through almost all my ink sticks! The documents I print are only spot color, letters with a logo or b/w booklets and reports.
