Conclusion: Xerox's latest generation of solid-ink printer, the Phaser 8500N, is a good fit for a small office or workgroup. Overall performance is a touch slower than for comparably priced color lasers, but that's balanced by output quality that leads the pack.
Pros: High quality output. Easy installation. Ample paper capacity, with 625 sheets standard.
Cons: Compared with similarly priced color lasers, overall performance is a touch on the slow side, apart from excellent speed for one- and two-page documents.
