Great machine...highly recommend I loved my Phaser 8560 back in the day. It has been impossible to switch over to a wireless printer so it is really just sitting there now. One day we will get another dry ink printer as I love them. I am in real estate and the quality of the print is excellent. Fins up..... December 10, 2014
Good printer with awesome quality Prints photo quality pictures, quick printing. December 9, 2014
Printer delivers fast and fantastic color This printer not only delivers copies quickly but the color on the printed page is lifelike and true to what is displayed on your screen. December 9, 2014
Reliable but ink is outrageously expensive I've had this printer for 4 years and it is used in a home office so not greatly taxed. It has recently, over the last year, developed port problems with my iMac and support through Apple, and then Xerox has not lead to an effective solution. To print almost anything takes ~30 seconds, and warm up, if necessary. Combined with the service contract renewal due in January of $215 annually, and the cost of ink, I cannot recommend this product. December 8, 2014
My XEROX 8560 Color Printer Have had this printer for over three years now. Still works great, excellent print quality. I got the model with two trays because I use both letter & legal paper. No problem with software selection of paper trays & this allows me to use the drop-down door for envelopes, etc. Only a couple of issues & because I have a maintenance policy, they were fixed very quickly.

DON'T BUY......RUN! Biggest waste of thousands of $'s of my entire life and that's not including all the ink and paper it wastes. There is no way to power it down without it doing a cleaning every time you turn it back on. Just leave it in power saver mode says the support team, ya that would be great if it didn't still use and inordinate amount of power and create noticeable heat while in power saver mode. Additionally mine will come out of power saver mode randomly during the middle of the night with no user input. For that reason it is great for a home office...or a dumpster. You ran out of ink because your phaser could only print pages with light stripes in them over and over even though you have printed 600 pages on it TOTAL and have run the basic and advanced troubleshooting for light stripes (which each use tons of paper and ink) like 5 times...? Then just run to the store and buy more Xerox Phaser 8560 OEM ink....because NO STORE HAS IT. OK, then just order it online and wait a week because that works for most businesses. I thought I was buying Xerox for the quality and I was dead wrong. Run! Run fast! December 1, 2014
Problematic and hi maintenance Had a Phase printer for many years and found it to be a great unit when working. Problem is repairs exceed the cost of a new unit. And you need to repair regularly. I even had an extended warranty that cost me 200.00 per year. For that much I could buy a new printer every year. Now I have a new problem, out of warranty and I won't replace this unit, I will purchase a more reliable brand that costs much less. August 16, 2014
Poor on Service 4 years later, it does not work and cost more for repair, than buying a new one. Can not use existing ink blocks with new machine. This is truely a throw away business. Could buy 4 cheap printers for the cost of this one. Looking for longer lasting machine with better warantee's September 19, 2013
