Rated 4 out of 5 by gcs8 It's a printer
It prints, it scans, it faxes, it's FIPS compliant, it plays nice with Active Directory, it is not a fan of DFS shares, I wish the drum scraper was part of the maintenance kit insted of haveing to have a tech come out to replace it, As Long as you print enough to keep the Xerox econcierge service active it is not a big deal other than I have to waste an hour watching the tech due to security policy.
The supplies are what is probably the coolest, they take up little to no space, other than the maintenance kit and you can just top them off every so often and no one ever has to complain that the printer is out of toner X.

This machine is great! The print quality is superb and the machine is easy to use. It has great functionality from scanning to printing. I love the feature that I can program how a job is scanned by scanning multiple parts and blending then into one document. I would recommend the ColorQube 8700 to anyone with a small to medium size business.

The new printer came during our busy season of printing. It is a bit noisy but it prints so well. The color cube are so easy to change and no mess to use.
We are still learning about the features of this printer and this is replacing a Phaser which we loved.

This printer is very slow, and is not a good fit for high volume printing. If documents are in color, they can not be written on. The printer has to be reset frequently as it just stops working.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BigHow The 8700X is a great printer but TOO LOUD to be in the same room with
Initially I was very excited - my first wax-based ink printer. It works flawlessly including double-sided prints/copy. But the printer is SO loud and clunky it's impossible to have in the same room. You cannot have a phone conversation within 30 ft (10m) of the printer. It has to be placed in a closed room/closet. Too bad.
The user interface (keypad) is intuitive enough. However the web access configurator requires a good background in IT.
Finally, my system is connected to a MAC-based network. While it works fine enough, the Xerox drivers (recently) are questionable. The system requires the document to be sent 2-3 times before it prints.
If you can live with the above limitations then by all means go for it. Otherwise, stay away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EEINCapeCod Great Quality Printing for High-end Documents and Reports with Great Economy and Ease of Use Generally, but some Room for Improviement with Storage
The ColorQube 8700X has been a great choice for us. The printing is consistently exquisite and the unit has worked well in our networked environment and plays well with our DocMoto document management system and our Daylite CRM tools. The print quality and volume printing capabilities has made outside services for our document printing unnecessary. The unit is now 2 years old and the only thing I'd like to see is better document storage and upload speeds relative to the scan and fax functions. A faster processor and better SSD storage should be available for these units moving forward and these improvements would alleviate the only concerns we've had relative to large document processing and software system reloads because of lower end processing and storage capability despite our GB LAN and WAN speeds.

We appreciate the fast speed when doing 2-sided printing and high quality color proofing that we do. Fantastic machine for many uses!
