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.

Massive waste of money and time Please do not buy this disastrous product. Frankly, when it works, it works well, but it does not function much of the time and requires a cold restart when it fails to print. Every restart wastes inordinate amounts of expensive ink. The problem is that it is extraordinarily unreliable and can be extremely costly to operate. A quick review of comments submitted by others here and elsewhere will reveal that the printer is notorious for rejecting original ink sticks purchased from Xerox. The company is entirely unresponsive unless you agree to an onsite visit by one of their technicians. One visit will cost more than the printer. Therefore, when it malfunctions out of warranty (when, not if) it makes more sense to junk the thing and buy a new one. It makes even more sense not to buy the product in the first place.

Problems This printer has been a head ache, once I fight with it for a while and waste a lot of ink and paper, Just to start a project. After it starts printing ok it is good for that print project, but the next usage is a fight again to get printing going right. It gets stuck on its own idea and won't change to what I want to print. Also after we owned the machine for a month the company was no help with any problems. So if you never change what you are printing it works ok. Right now it won't print pictures at all.

Slow warm up and durability issues We have purchased around 20 of these for certain clients and the longest one has lasted is about 3 years. We have had quite a few complaints about them being quite noisy and slow first page print outs. Most of the printers last around 18 months. Not durable what so ever. Have switched to a competitor.

Good printer Love the print quality of the solid ink. High price for refills, though. Jams a little more than I'd like; but solid printer. October 16, 2014
Power failure We bought 4 of this and after one year 3 of them are broken, and they are outside of warranty. Not recomend this printer. August 26, 2014
Power unit failure Steer clear of this model - it has a serious vulnerability in its power supply unit. Lots of users have reported failure (often just outside of warranty) and it is not possible to make an economic repair. Consumables are REALLY expensive too. July 17, 2014
