Summary: The ColorQube 8570 is the second printer I bought from Xerox, the first was an 8560. I soon discovered the 8570 to be much quieter and it does not use as much ink on standby. Also, the software is much improved which makes the printer much easier to use. I bought the 8560 to be used in a small business and bought the 8570 two years ago when the business was sold.
Summary: This printer really gets the job done. I notice a few specs of ink where they shouldn't be on a pretty regular basis, but all in all a great printer. My favorite thing (by far) is the use of the ink. We are get double or triple the amount of print jobs from the same amount of ink as we had our last 3 traditional color laser printers using normal toner. I have been blow away at this and as a church we are very appreciative at this fact most of all!
I like the way it prints and how easy it is to print

Summary: I like the way it prints and how easy it is to print. I wish the ink was not so expensive and at times it's very inconvenient when a person is in a rush to print and you have to wait for it to warm up. Other than that it's a good product.
Summary: This printer is pretty good. I only have a couple of complaints. The major one is ink and paper is wasted a lot because so many times the first time you print something, it doesn't come out clear. Usually half of the document is smeared or faded. Generally, if you reprint, it comes out correct the second time. We were told to clean it to avoid this, but that doesn't solve the problem.
Summary: This copier makes beautiful copies! It is easy to use - when it works. That is the issue. Since buying it we have had to have a repairman out to fix it numerous times. In particular - the paper drawer had to be replaced because it would not stay firmly against the paper and the machine would not agree that it had a specific size of paper in it. Additionally - like a lot of color copiers, it will not run black and white prints when a color block is empty.
Summary: The ColorQube 8570 purchase was made as a reaction to the mediocre quality of a lot of color inkjetters whose ink cartridges did not last very long and were highly problematic and slow. The Xerox printer, once it warms up, puts out great color copies consistently. The only problem I had was getting the two-sided printing turned off (I run a Mac with the printer). It is a bit on the noisy side, but after a while you do not even notice it.
Summary: I have used Xerox printers in the past and find the quality to be good. I do like the Qube 8570 print quality and it doesn't seem to waste as much ink as the Phaser 8560 did.. The only issue is that it is terribly noisy. I try not to print anything while I'm on the telephone.
