Summary: I'm a long-time owner of Xerox Phaser solid ink printers, but the 8870DN we just purchased has some major problems. We upgraded from the Xerox Phaser 8860 which, other than a bad print head, ran trouble-free for 4+ years. The new 8870, however, has had problems from the minute we took it out of the box: 1) Overheating and slowing to a crawl after just a few hundred pages.
Pros: low cost pages,,,,,,,,,,(really? could be much lower) small footprint for its capabilities somewhat fast duplexing is a nice option
Cons: They sell you ink sticks that probably costs pennies a piece for over $500.00 for all 4 colors, what a RIP OFF. they should include the full ink set in a machine that costs over $2K Should be much much much faster for this price range. Very noisy and clun
