Summary: We have had this printer for two years now and it has performed like a champ. It is currently connected to several computers in our home via wireless. The hook-up was fairly simple to accomplish and has worked very well. The quality of the print is very good as well, better than the other printers I have used in the past. It starts up quickly and is ready to go after a brief warm-up. After a relatively high upfront cost, the cost to run this printer is very low.
Summary: No problems with the set-up and for general office use is fine. But it won't do an envelope. The feed is difficult to use. One has to open the tray and set the width of the envelope and move the external guides everytime to do an envelope through the manual slot. And the printer wants to see a letter size sheet instead so it is a hassle to have it finally respond (shows a jam and the amber light flashes).
Summary: I paid $1400 for my first laser printer and it wasn't even color. Now, for a third of the cost, you can get a wonderful color printer. The quality is equivalent to that of the seriously expensive color printer I use at work (where refill cartridges cost $200 apiece). I purchased the set of 4 compatible cartridges linked on the page for $80 and they have lasted a year with no problems.
Good quality printouts, works with Mac and PC over Network

Summary: The quality of this printer is very good. The feature that I wanted and like is the fact that this is a network printer. I have both, a Mac and a PC and it works with both without a problem. The Mac was able to discover the printer without any help. The PC had to be configured with the IP address. After that minimum setup, it just worked. One word of caution is that this printer sucks a lot of power when warming up.
Summary: This is a very nice printer for a small office or home. Laser printers such as this cost less per page than ink jet printers especially some ink jet printers that consumer a lot of inkjet when turned on. Ink jets also can dry out. Two downsides: 1) The PCL driver doesn't seem to be available on the Xerox web site. The one listed as PCL is in fact eh PS driver which lasts allot of useful features such as printing two pages on each sheet. 2) Power consumption.
Summary: I like this product. It was easy to set up. I took it out of the box and plugged my powerbook g4 into it and it worked perfectly. I had hoped the color would be sharper but for low level presentations, this type of printer is more than sufficient. If I need something glossier, I'll still need to go to a professional printer. But, this purchase eliminates several trips to Kinko's. I'd definitely recommend this printer.
Summary: Well my old HP Laserjet 1100 didn't survive my move from California to Colorado, so time for me to get a new one. For the same price as my old HP, I found this color laser printer, with network access! Seeing as I have 3 laptop users at home with wifi only, this was definitely a selling point. Setup wasn't too bad (but if the phrase TCP/IP makes you stare blankly and you need direct network access, get a network admin to set this one up).
Summary: Xerox 8610/N has the same quality as printer I use at my workplace. Replacement toner is more affordable than my HP 2600. I bought this printer for the cost of replacing the HP toners, with money left over.
Summary: This printer has, so far, lived up to all the expectations I built while researching color laser printers which I did for quite some time. My previous primary printer was a B/W HP Laserjet 4L which I used for about six years and went through only 3 toner cartridges. It was very economical but once reasonable, I wanted to add color, of the laser variety. I've had several ink jet printers and am driven crazy by the amount of money I've had to spend on ink.
