Great Printer For The Money
Our compay owns several Xerox Phaser 8560 MFP machines. They are used constantly and do a really good job. The color copies are especially good! I can't imagine a company or individual not being happy with this product.

Excellent Product-Phaser 8560MFP
Not only is the Phaser easy to use, it is also relatively compact and very eco-friendly. Overall a great quality All-In-One for ther budget-conscious small office. We use the Phaser to scan and convert our public records into electronic document format. We also use it to print brochures, flyers, advertisements, and the Board Agenda. Very reliable machine. We are very happy with this Xerox product.

Worst Copier ever. I have jamming problems with this every day. Once this breaks down completely i am going to beat it because of all the stress this has caused me at work trying to get things done on time. Takes me sometimes 30 min to finally get it working

Great When it Works, Just Doesn't Work Often Enough
I was initially thrilled to be moving up from home office class equipment into what I considered to be genuine small business equipment for our company of 11. Several thousand dollars later we had our 8560MFP which initially worked quite well. Great print quality from the solid ink, minimal consumables, though the inks weren't as cheap as I was initially led to believe. We only ever used genuine Xerox inks and high quality paper. We had several service visits in the first year, eventually receiving an entire print engine replacement which they failed to program with the correct serial number which led to other problems. We had frequent issues with clogged print nozzles (the cleaning process also uses a considerable amount of expensive ink). The printer would spontaneously lose a day on its calendar causing faxes to report the wrong date and time stamps. Scans were tempermental at best and would bring down the whole printer if you asked it to compress the image in any way. After about 2 years the colors started coming out all wrong and now it anytime it tries to print red it ends up printing more of a blue-purple color. Every other day or so it needs to be restarted because it claims that the scanner has malfunctioned. Because of ALL of these issues, we'll be looking at a different brand for our next printer.

Buying this product was an unfortunate mistake
Although we like the solid ink, that is about the only good thing that I can say about this unit. I think that we must have been sent a complete lemon, as we've had multiple problems with it from day 1. We've had it serviced twice, and now that the warranty has expired, it is sitting here as a completely unusable boat anchor. It constantly says that the scanner is disconnected (even though we have tried all possible fixes), and therefore won't function at all anymore. We've had this unit for 17 frustrating months, and I think that we will be shopping for something different.

One troubled machine
This printer has been nothing but trouble, as other reviewers point out IDF (Integrated Document Feeder) works when it want to. The reason for such behavior most likely lies with Xerox's decision to keep the scanning lamp ON all the time. The surface of the scanner (a little strip that you can see once you open the document feeder cover) stays so hot that you will not be able to hold your hand on it. When ambient temperature rises the IDF sensors go nuts - printer reports paper in IDF or on the glass - even though there is nothing there. The only way to get it back into working condition is to power it off and let it cool off for 30 minutes. Then it works for another 15 minutes until lamp overheats and we are back to square 1. I've used and supported all makes and models of printers in medium size enterprise setting and this one is by far the most troubled printer I ever met.
I was also surprised to see lack of "scan to folder" functionality in this price range.

This product has all the features I need to run my small business!
I started a small graphic design business and needed to have a number of different products to run it: eg colour printer, fax machine, copier, scanner. I have found that the Phaser 8560MFP has been a god-send. It has given me everything I needed to run this business. I live in an isolated area & work at home & needed a reliable printer/copier/scanner/fax machine, etc. in order to get my work out ... I've been able to count on it for all my work. The only thing that I had a problem with was printing my newsletter (400 copies) ... the Phaser producted an excellent product, but it wasn't cost efficient.... although products like brochures, business cards, flyers, etc. made money. It's a great printer! and I would recommend it to anyone.

Colours do not match
This is the most tempermental printer I have used. The solid ink is expensive and it has melted twice in the machine so we had to make a service call. But the most frustrating part of this printer is the colours are off. Everything has a green hue to it, and it does not print the true colours from whatever type of file you use.
