  • Summary: I am so disappointed with this printer. I bought it new 2 years ago - only 6000 or so prints thus far and the LCD died within the first year. Now the heating element or something like that is broken and the cost of the spare part from non-xerox repairman is £1,300. However if one wants to call out Xerox to service the printer its £300 incl of labour and all spare parts. The silly thing is that it is cheaper to buy a new colour laser than to repair it !
  • Pros: It was fine when it worked !
  • Cons: Spare costs

  • Summary: What a big mistake this printer is. When on standby (and as previous reviewer says, you NEVER switch it off) it takes over 5 minutes to warm up. When warming up it is so noisy - it sounds like there's something wrong - that you can't speak on the phone if within 20ft. I've never managed to get decent colour out of it - blues always look grey. The envelope feeder needs you to manually push the envelopes in. It's noisy when printing.
  • Pros: Fast when printing
  • Cons: Colour, noise, warmup, efficiency...

  • Summary: Overall this printer is fantastic. The colors and print quality are great and the fact that it uses wax gives the picture a very nice glossy look. The power saver features and intelligent ready mode are great since you don't have to turn the unit off unless you want to move it.
  • Pros: Print quality is spectacular and colors are vivid!
  • Cons: Ink dump when powering off to move unit.

  • Summary: Although the Phaser 8500 has exceptional print quality, the pain of owning one is not worth the price. First, the cost of printing is based on minimal coverage, I believe 5%. Second the machine was designed to NEVER BE SHUT OFF! Every time the printer powers up it undergoes a cleaning cycle and dumps about $30 US dollars worth of ink. I had my Phaser on a UPS after I discovered power lags were causing it to cycle.
  • Pros: The print quality is great
  • Cons: The design is terrible

Xerox Phaser 8550DP

SchneiSim, Ciao
28 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Dieser Drucker erstzte unseren HP CLJ 2600n (siehe anderen Testbericht). Den 8550dp erstanden wir sehr günstig gebraucht, was trotz 45.000 Seiten nichts heißt bei diesem Drucker. Die aktiven Teile im Drucker sind sehr robust ausgelegt und auch einzeln auf Handelsplattformen sehr günstig zu ersteigern. Für Bastler gibt Xerox slebst ein servicemanual und Supportseiten an. Kleiner Tip: Diese Unterlagen muss niemend teuer im Netz erwerben, die gibt es umsonst bei Xerox.
  • Pros: Schnell, glänzende und kräftige Ausdrucke, guter Stapeleinzug, kaum Wartung notwendig
  • Cons: etwas laut, Energieverbrauch

De Xerox solid ink printers zijn erg hongerig

Edu_S, Ciao
4 December 2006
  • Excerpt: De printer en alle apparaten van Xerox die gebaseerd zijn op de solid ink technologie maken prachtige afdrukken en ook snel; zelfs op papier tot 180 gram/m2. Xerox maakt echter erg optimistische berekeningen over het inktgebruik van de printer. Zelfs als je hem niet gebruikt smelt namelijk letterlijk de inkt weg en zo kan je in een maand tijd voor honderden euro's inkt weggooien zonder één afdruk te maken.
  • Pros: Prachtige afdrukkwaliteit, snel
  • Cons: Gebruikskosten van de printer

  • Summary: Una stampante molto buona, che permette di avere stampe professionali, e chi non puo mancare sulla vostra scrivania è Xerox Phaser 8500N. Questa stampante dal designer massiccio cubica, permette di avere stampe ad alta risoluzione. Una ottima caratteristica, molto utile, è la stampa avanti e retro. Questa stampante ha una risoluzione a 1200 punti, permettendo cosi di avere immagini a colori molto nitide. Il formato dei fogli è A4.
  • Pros: Stampante da veri professionisti
  • Cons: nessuno
