Better The Second Time Around The ColorQube 8570 is the second printer I bought from Xerox, the first was an 8560. I soon discovered the 8570 to be much quieter and it does not use as much ink on standby. Also, the software is much improved which makes the printer much easier to use. I bought the 8560 to be used in a small business and bought the 8570 two years ago when the business was sold. Though the Xerox representative was reluctant to sell a ColorCube to an individual making fewer copies a month, it was the right choice for me. By the way, look at the new service contract, it seems too good to be true, but I believe that it is. May 23, 2013
Xerox solid ink won me over We got this printer to replace a still fairly new laser printer that had broken down due to a label sticking to the transfer belt. I was very skeptical about solid ink, but having read Xerox's literature on it, the reviews here and elsewhere, and because the strength's of solid ink seemed to matchup pretty well to what we were printing color for, I decided to give it a shot. Well, I'm convinced now. The print quality is fantastic. The color is very rich and vibrant. Results so far indicate that we are using FAR less solid ink to print similar numbers of pages than we were toner. The fast processor, spacious RAM, and true Adobe PostScript3 on this thing ensure that it tears through even the toughest jobs with little waiting. Its not without some "getting used to" though. I'd recommend tweaking the warmup schedule to your needs. For us, I have it set to warmup at 8am and go to sleep at 6pm, and I've got "Fast Resume" enabled. I've yet to have anyone complain about waiting for it to warmup. If you do lose power, expect to waste some ink as this thing will run its cleaning program. To combat that I put a UPS on it, that should eliminate short power drops causing problems and give me enough time to shut it down if its going to be an extended outage. I also find print speed to be slightly slower than with a color laser printer. You won't get anywhere near Xerox's claimed 40ppm unless you're using "Fast Color" mode. However the speed is comparable to what you'd get from color laser printers at similar resolutions, and the fast processor and spacious RAM mean this printer usually has rendered and started on the job long before our color laser would have, so it evens things out. Overall, I highly recommend Xerox's ColorQube 8570, and I hope they continue developing solid ink technology, there's definitely a place for it in the market. But please, do your research first, as solid ink is not the same as a toner based product, it has advantages and disadvantages, and you need to figure out if it fits with your needs or not.

Excellent color photos. The best printer for color photos. They are sharp and are the best quality I have seen. Printing is also the fasted I have used. January 21, 2015
Exceptional print quality this printer is a workhorse for those looking for a solid reliable printer with exceptional print quality. Not as fast as industrial printers but the quality far outweighs any speed issue January 15, 2015
Qube 8570 We have purchased three of this printer. The first one was problem free for many years, but we didn't have a service agreement-our error, so when a problem did exist it was too costly to repair. BUT, I purchased a new one for about $500 then purchased another. We like the quality and would recommend. January 14, 2015
Inconsistant Connectivity We have used the Phasers for years (8560) and have been so impressed with its consistency and ease of use. The new 8570 has had issues since day one. Probably twice a week or more, the unit will not respond to the printing requests from networked computers. It often gives printer errors and completely shuts down. At this point you must flip the power switch to off and just wait 20-30 minutes and reboot. This is very inconvenient as you have probably lost the print job and have to redo everything again. Although, when it is operating it is very good and with quality printing. Maybe someone at xerox could help with the situation. January 13, 2015
Very Nice Printer Very nice printer for the price. It is a lot easier than running down to the copy center to get nice prints made. Very high quality. I had an issue with an ink block chipping off on a corner and it jammed the ink block in the printer. The printer was repaired within 1-2 days at no charge within 10 minutes and the ink package was replaced with no questions asked through Xerox. Great Service by the tech and great customer support by Xerox. January 13, 2015
