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.

Nice quality printer. Good print quality and easy to use make this a worthwhile printer.

We have had the Color Qube 8900 in our office for 3 years. It is much easier to use than a previous model we had, and definitely has more features.

Worst printer I've ever had to work with
1. Crayon smell from the printer
2. Must leave power on constantly
3. Ink peels off paper
4. Ink does not adhere to other mediums (labels, etc)
5. Ink fades
6. If ink is reintroduced to heat (sunlight), will melt and fuse adjacent paper together
7. Touchscreen interface is slow and not well thought-out
8. Scanner quality is poor
9. Generates heat (in order to keep ink blocks melted)
It does hold down the printer stand and is an excellent paper weight

Continuous paper feed jams every day -true(with paper) or not (without paper)-
From September 2013 to May 2014, XEROX have instaled 3 CQ8900 in our plant -all new-, and all failed in the same way...
Xerox technical support did not find the problem. Do they care about it?
Every day is a headache day with this printer model.
It has been my worst printer experience in 20 years.

Headache in a Qube
I use the ColorQube 8900 for my office, and it is by far the worst printer I've ever worked with. The Ink is wax based, so anytime you have to laminate a piece of paper, the ink melts and smears on the pages. If you are doing a large printing it takes way longer than any other printer. Changing paper and telling the printer which type of paper you are using is difficult most of the time. Paper almost always gets jammed and will take about 15 minutes for the printer to reset itself and fix the problems. The scanner on the top of the printer, while it scans in color, is very low quality. When a scanned copy of an ID or photo comes out it looks like an oil pastel painting. Lastly the stand by time and reset time are ridiculous and take about 20 minutes for the printer to turn itself on.
