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.
There is money to be saved here without loss of print quality or performance

Summary: I have used these compatible ink blocks in my Xerox 8500 for some years now and they seem to work just as well as the originals in terms of colour rendering and capacity. They have caused no damage to the printer and operate in all respects as if they were originals.
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.
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!
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!
Summary: Haft den i 2-3 år och blir fortfarande förbannad på den. Vill du ha en snabb skrivare som skriver ut svart text på A4 är skrivaren OK. Uppvärmningstiden är lång men du kan låta den alltid stå varm om det passar dig. Färgutskrifter är ett skämt! - och mataren för att t.ex.
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.
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.
