Summary: Steer clear of this model - it has a serious vulnerability in its power supply unit. Lots of users have reported failure (often just outside of warranty) and it is not possible to make an economic repair.
Summary: We have had this for 6 months it is a replacement for the 8560 which went out under warranty. From the beginning it has been very slow to start printing on average 45 seconds after request to print has been placed. We have had the xerox rep out 5-6 times and never been able to eliminate the delay problem(all other printers on the same network print in a timely matter).
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: We originally purchased two of these printers. They worked fine for just over 12 months. We powered them down to move them and they never came back to life. Having had visit from an engineer we were told the power units had failed in both printers and to replace them, it would cost more than a new printer.
Summary: You are unable to laminate anything that comes out of this printer as all the colours will change and merge. And if thats not bad enough, after a year something will go wrong with it. For us its the power circuit, so having turned it off, it will no longer turn on so no printing for a while.
