Summary: I had several years with this printer and I had a really bad experience with it. First of all, you must have powered on the machine 24x7, every time you turn off and on the machine, you waste ink. This machine needs a lot of energy to operate, even when you're not printing.
Summary: I still have not received a printer that works. I ordered in the middle of July, the printer was delivered, did not work, a local repairman has the printer and is awaiting the delivery of a working printer.
Summary: I have been buying and using printers since the 70's when we had 110 tty's and LA120, with drum printers for the fast stuff. I have had HP Laser's, the spray-painters and the rest. Most printers are built on the razor/blade model; cheap entry with high cost of operation.
Summary: The printing is beautiful but they are unreliable. The first had a gear break and the second had the printer head die. The cost to repair would have been three times the cost to replace. It's a huge printer too and feels solid, so I wonder why it's so cheaply made on the inside.
Loud, slow, expensive to operate, fragile, and poorly supported

Summary: Mine is two years old, and has seen light to moderate use over that time. It's breathtaking how expensive the solid ink is (and it goes fast)!. My 8560 recently broke - it started jamming and making all kins of noise. A local repair person couldn't fix it.
Summary: The Xerox Phaser 8560 MFP does it all: prints (bw & color), faxes, and scans (pdf, jpg, tiff, png). I had purchase this via Xerox's contract-to-own program which they supply all the inks, maintenance kit, and complimentary repair routine maintenance.
Summary: I've had the Xerox Phaser 8560DN for a few years now and it is a good printer, but my main problem with it is how much Xerox charges for the ink. Blocks of ink sell in sets of 3 blocks per box, for $125. You need 4 colors for a complete refill and that means $500 to refill the ink.
DON'T BUY THIS PRINTER OR ANY XEROX SOLID INK PRINTER!

Summary: I bought two of these printers and wish I'd never bought one! First of all, one of the printers no longer works and has found its way to the nearest dump! It died as soon as the warranty ran out. These printers also turn on all through the day and night.
Summary: Since I've already had several solid ink printers, I knew what to expect. This unit delivers excellent colors at reasonable speed. Don't expect it to be as quiet or as past as a laser printer. Solid ink is cheaper and more environmentally friendly than laser cartridges and quite easy to load.
