  • How long does this machine take to turn on after completely turning it off?

    Due to the solid ink consumables for the Xerox ColorQube 8880DN (8880_ADN) it is advised that you do not switch the printer off completely on a regular basis as any excess ink will be discarded and not used.The printer has Intelligent Ready technology which ensures the printer will wake up and go into standby mode based upon the users printing history to conserve energy. Instead, it is advised that you leave the printer in stand-by mode and, if this is the case, the first-page-out time will be as little as 5 seconds in colour.

  • What is the maximum amount of trays that this can hold?

    The Xerox ColorQube 8880DN (8880_ADN) has the option of adding an additional 3 525 sheet trays on top of the standard 100 sheet multipurpose tray and the 525 sheet tray. Therefore, this printer can hold a maximum of 5 trays.

  • What is solid ink and how is it different to a laser?

    Solid ink is a Xerox technology which has been in production since 1986. The Xerox solid ink printers use solid ink sticks rather than traditional toner or fluid ink to recreate prints. The solid ink printer melts a portion of the solid ink stick and stores it in a small print head which is then sprayed onto the page. Solid ink printers have several advantages over traditional laser printers in that they are far more environmentally friendly as they only have 5 consumables and there is no toner casing as on traditional laser printers. They are also generally a lot cheaper to run than traditional lasers and this is very true of the Xerox 8880 which has the lowest running costs in it's class. Print quality is excellent which is mainly down to the way the ink is applied to the page as the ink doesn't sink into the page as much as a traditional laser so the colours appear far more vibrant. It's easier to produce good quality on cheaper paper due to the fact the ink doesn't sink into the page as much.

  • I'm looking for a printer with really low running costs. The Xerox 8880 seems to fit the bill. Are there any other parts to buy other than the inks? Also how does it compare to similar machines. We are printing about a box of paper per month and our current machine is costing us a fortune to run.

    There are only 5 consumables in total on the Xerox 8880 which are the Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black ink sticks and the only other consumable is the maintenance kit. The machine ships with the standard 10,000 page maintenance kit but when it comes to replacing it, it is more economical to purchase the 30,000 page maintenance kit. The Xerox 8880 has the lowest running costs of all the A4 printers on the Printerland website. We would class a machine as having very low running costs if they are below 5p per page in colour. The Xerox 8880 costs just over 1p per page in colour.

    Very bad with major design flaw

    This printer has a major design flaw; the solid wax ink. Due to the weight of the wax laid, it is not possible to write upon the printed document (e.g. draw and arrow and add some reference text). Neither is it possible to put any page printed with this printer back into another printer ( e.g. letterhead), as it reheats and melts the previous ink. It's a serious problem and Xerox admit they have a number of complaints regarding this issue. However, no responsibility is taken and we have had to resort to trading standards for resolution.

    Wax printer

    Lovely quality high definition printing. On the down side, the printer takes a long time to 'warm up' before printing, i.e when you have sent your print job to the machine, you have quite a wait before receiving your print out. Also, disappointing that the printer will not print on textured paper. We have conqueror laid letterheads (paper with a slight texture) and the printer does not print properly on these. So for the price, probably not as good as it could be.

    very impressed

    we were looking for a replacement Epson printer for our small business. we looked at the Xerox ColourQube 8880 very easy to set up, quickest printing we have seen and the cost of replacement ink make this very economical. Thanks for the good advice very impressed with the service we have received. As our second Epson is on its last legs we will be returning for a second Xerox once we have used up the last of the Epson ink.

    High quality printing

    The print quality with this device is top notch - the clarity and colour definition is fantastic. We mostly use the device for B&W prints with approx 10% coverage and the reported life of toner matches this. The lack of waste when replacing ink is fabulous with solid ink and 43000 pages later, we've still not replaced the waste tray. The printer itself, even on "quiet" mode is louder than any other printer we've owned. I love the ability to replace the maintenance kit by simply sliding out the used one and sliding in a replacement and that the replacements are not more than the cost of the printer like with many of the older printers I've preciously used.

    Nothing but problems from day one

    I read a lot of reviews on the Internet complaining about Xerox printer quality, but I was tempted by the low running costs of the printer as the running costs of this printer is phenominal. Bad idea. However, from day one, we have had problems with this printer. We have only done 87 pages and more than half the toner has gone! It also takes about 2 minutes to wake up and start printing. We had a Xerox engineer come out and apparently the staff were told that I needed to change the printer to a static IP Address! But no other details as to what the problem is and when or if they are coming back! I have looked at the printer and there is even less toner in there now, than there was before! I have decided to return this printer to Printerland and buy another manufacturer as I don't want to end up with a printer that is unreliable for the next five years.

    Huge cost saving with Solid Ink

    The Solid Ink system in the Xerox ColoQube range is a considerable cost saving, both in maintenance, low (none) wastage and consumables. The only maintenance part to replace is the maintenance kit. We have an 8870DN which has done over 600,000 impressions to date and still going strong.

    Xerox PagePack

    A cost-per-page you can count on.

    In today's economy, everyone is looking for ways to cut costs.

    For most companies the ongoing cost of office printing – cost-per-print, routinemaintenance and service – is an unexplored opportunity for significant, cumulativesavings. PagePack will improve productivity and your company's printing costs.

    How does PagePack improve your print environment?

    A fixed cost-per-page. In an unmanaged environment, every document printed uses a variable amount of ink or toner. You paya different price for every print and the costs are unknown. Service calls are unpredictable and so are the charges. With PagePackall your variable expenses are consolidated. You pay a fixed cost-per-page that reduces overall expenditures.

    Increase productivity. PagePack also saves on hidden costs, such as staff resources and prevents shortages of consumables,by simplifying ordering and vendor management. With PagePack there's no need to keep an inventory of consumables on hand.You can order themonline 24/7.

    Free Remote Services. With PagePack Remote Services Platform you get real-time visibility of your Xerox networkeddevices; MeterAssistant® automates the process of collecting and submitting meter reads for accurate billing, so you pay for whatyou actually use.

    Low Cost Colour - Hybrid Colour Plan

    Now with Hybrid Printing plans you can print all the briliant colour you need whilst keeping in full control of your costs.

    If you print a lot of colour, then the Xerox Hybrid Colour Billing for the Xerox ColorQube 8870 printer and Phaser 8860MFP could be for you, significantly reducing your print costs by up to 50%. This billing plan is based on the actual amount of colour used - when you use less colour, you pay less, rather than the one price for a colour page that most people are used to.

    We use our technology to deliver these savings to you. Solid ink printers create images by printing tiny pixel dots of black and colour ink on the page. The devices automatically count the number of colour pixels used to produce each printed page, and tally individual pages on three separate meters - Useful (spot colour), Everyday (medium colour coverage) and Expressive (heavy colour pages). So you only pay for the actual amount of colour you print.

    All print speeds, running cost calculations and consumable life cycles are MANUFACTURER ESTIMATES based on 5% per page coverage. Images are used for illustration purposes only
