Rated 4 out of 5 Good value
The solid ink looks different than regular laser, but I think I like it better. Provides very vibrant colours.
The machine is very easy to use with one of the largest colour screens I've seen on a product this size.
The print speed is good, but very large jobs are a bit slow to process compared to full size MFPs.

Rated 5 out of 5 Love it
I have had mine for over 2 years. It is great. Never fails. Bit slow but so worth it for the space it takes up. Love the wax ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 Reliable, low ink cost printer so far.
We have been happy with the low ink cost of the Xerox printers so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kelly Colorqube 8900
This copier makes an excellent quality copy. That is the only good thing I can say about it. We have had ours since April 2014 and it has been a huge headache. It is gltichy and unreliable. The Xerox Colorqube 8900 is the worst copier I've used in my 30 year career. My assistant is on the phone with Xerox service dept. for the umpteenth time as I write this. And for the umpteenth time they are unable to resolve our problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 Too many bugs and sytem failures
The UI has too many bugs and possible memory drain and requires hard reboot once a week.. It is just a matter of time for one of the mechanical parts to fail or need alignment and this printer will force you to get to know how to use the Xerox Support process.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Print Quality
The 8900 ColorQube has vivid print quality and I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Silicon Valley pediatric office eConcierge a necessity to give you peace of mind
We have had this product about three years. The software interface could be more user friendly. Letters compiled in A4 oversees won't print unless carefully coaxed and fooled. Analog telephone lines have given way to IP transmissions that make regular old time faxing unreliable. So, analog faxing in Silicon Valley has become useless. Print speed is about half the rated 44 pages/min.
The product worked fine the first couple of years and our solid ink supplier paid for the first needed repair. I became nervous about the need for future repair and switched to eConcierge. This was a good move as we have needed repair three times since with significant parts replacement which would have cost a ton. Apart for a day or two wait for parts to arrive when needed, the service was good. Techs have always been impressed by the solid construction of this unit and have said it is still good for many more years use.
Print quality is great. A particularly good discovery was made when printing promotional color booklets on 28 lb paper with 90 lb covers. The printer automatically sorts the booklet pages into the correct order and automatically prints the covers on the thicker cardstock, making separation of a stack of pages into booklets very easy. Everyone admires the great looking color and the slightly waxy feel to the pages gives a great glossy feel to the paper as in a high class publication.
Very delighted with what we can produce with this product with color pictures included at the same print cost. Awesome!
Considering the waste of time that fax has become, I would do this over with the 8880 Color Qube printer plus a separate ScanSnap scanner to take care of scanning needs.

Rated 1 out of 5 Not worth it
This machine looks good at first glance as a less expensive option to a full copier. Well, you get what you pay for. It is constantly breaking down and, since the parts need to be special ordered, the 4-hour promised service time is not applicable (but they won't tell you that up front).
Also, the software is not as good as it could be and often times jobs need to be input twice. I could go on and on about the lack of quality and functionality of this machine, but it would be pointless. I will just say that I am constantly getting complaints from staff about this machine and would NEVER recommend it to any other business. Period.
