Summary: This printer has been a head ache, once I fight with it for a while and waste a lot of ink and paper, Just to start a project. After it starts printing ok it is good for that print project, but the next usage is a fight again to get printing going right.
Summary: The printer is okay, the quality of the prints is very nice although the cubes are pricey. The biggest issue for me is that the technology doesn't fuse to the paper like powder toner and if you try to laminate anything the colors run and change color. Have to send things out to printer now.
Summary: I like the concept of the solid ink, but even in my small home office, I will spend $1000+ a year in supplies. No matter what Xerox says, when a freshly printed sheet is printed, many ball point pens will have trouble writing on it.
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.
Has issues with 500+ page print runs and really eats up the ink sticks

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.
Summary: Had to replace the print head once (under warrenty). Very slow on start-up and dumps a lot of waste ink. Front cover is always slipping down and needs to be pushed back into place. Very noisy for in-office use. Might not be bad if placed in a common area.
Summary: Wax based inks look very clean and professional - except when printing light colors. Light colors pixelate and appear grainy. Also wax based ink is not optimal for envelope printing, as the ink will melt and smear when sent through mail barcoders.
Summary: With my older model, I was able to laminate the copies - this one doesn't let me do that. It is also very slow to get ready to use and stops for short periods to warm up or something when I run a bunch of envelopes.
