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. Now a toner cartridge for a laser printer is made up of a plastic case, control chips, photosensitive drum and toner reservoir and that typically runs for about the same, $125 per color.
Summary: Everything was great on this purchase with the expection of the printer not being cleared before it arrived. I had to pay a Xerox technition to come and use his laptop to reprogram the printer. It had lost some of the intitial settings from the factory. I assumed this refurbed unit would be set to factory defaults. On top of the purchase price I had to pay $125.00 to get this machine up and running. I could have bought a brand new unit for less.
Summary: This printer produces stunning output and has excellent paper handling. Setup was a breeze. But, it is quite noisy when printing and when it is in standby mode (after overnight, for example) the first page takes 2-3 minutes to print. Also, it is recommended to be left on all the time, and it consumes almost 50 watts in standby mode.
Summary: I have had a Xerox Phaser 8560DN for 1 year. I do a great deal of printing so when it stopped working I decided to order another printer from overstock. I couldn't beat the pricing. I paid 2400 for my first 8560dN with the extra paper feed drawer. The printer is a work horse, it prints quality prints and prints fast. Very few errors. I assume mine stopped working because I sent it a lot of work. Being a graphic designer and tax prep accountant I do a lot of printing.
Excerpt: As a have stated in my previous review, I have three colour printers at work, one super duper one, a second being relatively good and my back up plan which was my last review. The Xerox Phaser 8560 I have had for two years and decided to keep when I recently upgraded to my super duper printer that is my pride and joy when I am in creative mode at work.
