Astonishingly economical high quality color printer
25 October 2011
Summary: Xerox has turned the standard printer business model on its head with this printer! Instead of pricing the printer cheap and the consumables high (the "razors and razor blades" model), they charge a higher, but reasonable, price for the printer, and sell the consumables for less than you would believe. (Google "xerox cost per page" for Xerox's figures).
Summary: This printer has been a real pleasure to use, compared to our previous colour laser printer. It is as fast in colour as in black and white, and so long as we keep feeding it powdery mess-free colour blocks, it keeps churning out bright, sharp output that makes us look good.
Summary: The reason i chose this printer was due to the low TCO on the unit. Yes we paid more for the unit upfront, but have been able to cover that extra cost by benefiting from colour printing at 1p.
Summary: Outstanding color quality and fast! The best part of this printer is that the color ink is ridiculously inexpensive. 17,300 pages for $90? Works out to less than 3.2 cents per color page. Other color printers in this category are minimum 8-10 cents per page. Love it!
