Large workgroups looking to produce around 120,000 pages per month may find it valuable to consider the Xerox ColorQube 8870. This color inkjet printer may be small in size, but it is large in possibilities. The compact size of 16x20.5x14.5 inches will be easy to place anywhere, but the 60.4 pound weight may be problem for some. Using Xerox 8870 ink, up to 40 pages per minute can be printed in black-and-white or color. Upon purchase, buyers will probably love the status LCD screen, and setup will be simple thanks to USB and ethernet connections being supported. Duplex printing is also featured, and users will be able to print out their first page in as fast as 5 seconds using ColorQube 8870 ink.
To create the 1200x1200 dpi resolutions that are possible, Xerox 8870 ink sticks are needed. There are four different ink sticks needed inside—black, cyan, magenta and yellow. The black printer ink lasts 16,700 pages before expiring. The color ColorQube 8870 ink sticks can each last about 17,300 pages before they run out. While most similar units use printer toner, toner and solid ink prints are generally very similar. The real difference is the fact that toner is a powder, and these sticks are very similar to a crayon that melts and sticks to the paper.
Many different medias can be printed on with this solid ink. Transparencies, labels, greeting cards, plain paper, business cards, index cards, bond paper, tri-fold brochures and glossy paper are all supported. Sizes of up to 8.5x14 inches are even supported.
Overall, there are definitely more positive reviews for the 8870 than negative ones. Users love how excellent the color turns out and there are multiple praises for the unit's low cost per page. It is also a perk that replacement ink is affordable new or compatible.
