Expert review by : M. David Stone (

Xerox ColorQube 8870DN


Print enough pages and the Xerox ColorQube 8870DN color laser printer can save you enough to pay for itself.

Low cost of printing, particularly for color, can fully pay for the printer itself.

Text quality is below par for a laser class printer, although good enough for most business needs.

Xerox takes a leap forward in solid-ink printing


The ColorQube 8870DN produces terrific text and images, and Xerox has eliminated many of the traditional flaws of solid-ink printers.

Excellent printing quality for text; good color accuracy

Difficult setup and install to desktop PC
