Xerox 8900 Printer Review
Solid ink printers are designed to create high-quality color schemes resulting in lab-quality photos, and the Xerox ColorQube 8900 does just that by producing a maximum resolution of 2400 dpi. This powerful office all-in-one machine can deliver a maximum of 120,000 prints each month and will do so while making a small carbon footprint, as the Xerox 8900 ink simply dissolves upon use, leaving no empty cartridge to dispose of.
The 1.33 GHz processor creates a first page out time of only 8.5 seconds and a maximum print rate of 44 pages per minute. The 80 GB hard drive and 1 GB of memory store a large amount of data and allows large documents to be processed quickly and easily. Duplexing is a standard feature, as is the 7-inch LCD screen with color and touchscreen capabilities. This gives users a simple way of exploring various settings, changing functions, and monitoring the Xerox 8900 ink levels.
Cyan, magenta, and yellow ColorQube 8900 ink sticks can yield nearly 17,000 pages, while the black printer ink will produce up to 18,000 pages. Each color of Xerox 8900 ink stick is shaped specifically to fit in the appropriate slot inside the machine. Multiple ColorQube 8900 ink sticks can be inserted into the slots at a time.
With a weight of 102 pounds and a frame that measures 24.2x23.8x23.4 inches, the 8900 will take up a good chunk of space but is still considered a space-saver because it combines a printer, scanner, copier, and fax machine. The standard paper capacity is 625 sheets, which includes a 100-sheet bypass tray for various media types. This can be increased to 3,475 sheets by adding more trays. Finishing options can also be added, including a stapler and stacker.
This all-in-one device is an environmentally friendly option for printing high-quality photos and various other documents in an office. It offers a number of functions and built-in features that make it efficient and useful. The Xerox ColorQube 8900 is a good choice for offices with a need for color capabilities.
