Xerox Phaser 8560MFP/D

 

The Xerox Phaser 8560MFP/D offers lots of features, reasonably good speed, and strong output quality.

Fast. Reasonably high quality. Prints, scans, faxes from PC. Standalone copier and fax.

Fax feature is inconveniently hidden in driver.

Xerox Phaser 8560MFP/N Solid Ink MFP

 

It may be expensive, but this Xerox solid ink based MFP is cheap to run and eco-friendly too.

There's a lot going for the Phaser 8560MFP-N. It produces very good colour prints, not quite up to inkjet standard when you're looking at photographic output, but better than a colour laser. Colour copies are very close to the originals they're copied...

Xerox Phaser 8560DN review

 

Solid ink printers aren't new, but costs have been creeping downwards from the astronomical to the merely painful. The solid ink process is now at the same price point that colour lasers were five years ago, which makes it an affordable proposition for...

The Xerox Phaser 8560DN is a good solid-ink performer, which leans heavily on its green credentials. It's quick, enjoys good colour gamut and quality, has built-in ethernet networking and an intriguing power-saving mode. Alas, it's far from cheap to...

Phaser 8560DN review

 

There may be nothing new about solid ink printers, but the price over the last five years has fallen from immensely painful to acceptable. We take a look at the Phaser 8560 from Xerox, to see what performance it offers for the money.

Speed, colour gamut and quality, built-in Ethernet networking as well as USB, power-saving mode has potential

Quite pricey to buy, pricey to run, bulky for an A4 model, average power consumption of 230W isn’t small

Although both the initial price and running costs are high, the benefits of speed, print quality and colour control are obvious. This is a professional printer for professional users. In budget conscious times, A4 output at this high price limits it to...

Xerox Phaser 8560MFP/N

 

Xerox's range of solid ink printers, of which the Phaser 8560MFP/N is the latest, employ a technology inherited from its purchase of Tektronix, where wax sticks akin to crayons are used to print pages. This may sound a bit kiddy, but is far from it, as...

The 8560MFP/N is a smashing multi-function for anybody who wants high duty cycles, but with better print quality than a typical laser. The initial cost may seem high, at just over 1000, but low running costs mitigate this, and the printer is capable of...

Horrid Customer Service

 

I thought about shooting myself.

Worked great for a while. After a long warm up spits out paper amazingly fast

Dropped it off for service, and then they seem to have lost my machine. None of my calls to the service center were answered. When I called Xerox, they told me these service centers were independent and I had to go though them. Xerox passed me around...

Don't buy this MFP

 

Solid Ink

Constantly malfunctions. We had great luck with a Phaser 8560 and thought we'd try the MFP model and have had nothing but problems. Very unreliable

Solid printer!

 

We're going to get more of Xerox's solid ink printers to save not only money but the environment as well. The cost per print is very low!

This printer's great. The solid ink technology is a fantasic "green" initiative and has very little waste to it - but it's recyclable! We haven't had any issues with the ink itself or it coming off of printouts. The color intensity is much better with...

Wish the menu system was a little more robust but that's minor

PIECE OF JUNK

 

DO NOT BUY

Fast printing and decent color

This is a piece of junk and their service sucks. I bought not one, not two, but five of these. They all have been serviced multiple times. First it was the hard drive, then the power board, now I got one out with a bad printhead 10 days out of warranty...
