Xerox ColorQube 8580 Solid Ink Printer

The Xerox ColorQube 8580 printer series is the newest release from Xerox in their solid ink printer line-up. Xerox’s Solid Ink technology is known for bringing a consistent high level of quality, reliability and efficiency to its printers. The Xerox ColorQube 8580 does not skimp when it comes to those three areas, with a 2400 Xerox FinePoint ® resolution the image quality will be up to par. The reliability is synonymous with the Xerox® brand and the 8580 series continues that tradition and to back it up, comes with a One-year On-site warranty. Additionally the ColorQube 8580 uses the same solid ink sticks as the ColorQube 8570 printers, so if you’re already using the 8570 and looking for an upgrade to a new machine, the 8580 could be a great fit.Xerox 8580DN Printer

The Xerox ColorQube 8580 follows in line with the rest of the solid ink printers in the past and offers three varying versions to suit every office’s needs. All three models offer a fast printing speed of 51 pages per minute (PPM) both monochrome and color with a first-page-out Time of only 5 seconds. Each model also has a large paper output tray of 350 sheets and has a monthly duty cycle of 85,000 pages/month, which allows it to handle workloads of all sizes. The ColorQube 8580N and ColorQube 8580DN come standard with two trays; Tray 1 (Multi-purpose tray) which can hold up to 100 sheets and fits to many custom sizes, and Tray 2 which can hold up to 525 sheets and can alter in sizes as well if needed. The ColorQube 8580DT offers an additional 525 sheet tray, Tray 3, which allows for users to have multiple paper types in the printer at one time, perfect for those who print regularly on legal and letter sizes. Additionally the ColorQube 8580DN and 8580DT both have duplexing capabilities which allows the user to do their part in saving the environment and print on both sides of the paper. All three 8580’s offer built in networking with an Ethernet port so you can easily hook into any network and print from any location.

As for supplies, as stated earlier, the Xerox 8580 ink sticks are the same ink sticks as its predecessor the Xerox ColorQube 8570. There are five different packs of ink you can choose from when purchasing ink as well as two options for a maintenance kit which is detailed out below:

SKU Description Page Yield Compatible Available
108R00926 Cyan, 2 Pack 4,400 Pages Yes
108R00927 Magenta, 2 Pack 4,400 Pages Yes
108R00928 Yellow, 2 Pack 4,400 Pages Yes
108R00929 Black, 2 Pack 4,300 Pages Yes

109R00783 Extended Capacity Maintenance Kit 30,000 Pages Yes
109R00784 Standard Capacity Maintenance Kit 10,000 Pages No

If you are looking for any of these supplies feel free to visit our Xerox 8580 Supplies Page, here.

As you can see above, for the majority of the 8580 ink and accessories there are compatible solutions available which can help with the real expensive cost of these supplies. The compatibles on average are about 35% less expensive than the Xerox OEM Inks and can still offer the high quality and service guarantee if purchased from a reputable supplier or manufacturer. Many retailers even offer bundles of the ink sticks to help give discounts when you purchase all the products at once, which can really help with the cost of operations as well.

Overall, the Xerox ColorQube 8580 printer series is a great addition to Xerox’s prestigious line up of printers. The ColorQube 8580 lets users remain environmentally and price conscience while still having high quality outputs from a machine.

Low Toner Notifications – When You Need Them, Not When Someone Remembers

Ever get that frantic email on a Monday morning, “Our HP LaserJet Pro 200 Color M251 Printer is out of toner and I need to print out 500 pages today!”, well with SG Print Manager you will never get that email again. SG Print Manager is a FREE application that The Supplies Guys is offering its customers, which monitors your printers, faxes and copiers in your office and can notify you of anything you need to know about those machines.

Our customers who have been involved in the beta program of this have commented on the helpfulness of these notifications. Some of their favorite notifications are; % of Toner Life Remaining, New Cartridge Detected and Estimated Days until empty. There are plenty of other notifications available to fit any users’ needs, with over 50 options of notifications, you can pretty much be notified of anything from a paper jam to surpassing a limit of pages per month.

Some other helpful notifications from Print Manager include:

-          Toner Low
-          Toner Empty
-          Maintenance Required
-          Printer Status – (Service requested, offline, Jammed, Door Open, No Paper, Low Paper)
-          Waste Toner Level
-          All other parts on printer – (Maintenance kit, Fuser, Drum Kit, Belt, etc.)

Utilizing these notifications can make anyone’s job that much easier, we had customers of all positions find value in this application. For our customers where they are the person who orders all the office supplies for the office, you now won’t need to rely on everyone else to let you know when they need toner. Or if you’re the type of person that always has extras available, next time someone replaces a toner, you can easily be notified.

For the customers who own the business and make all purchases, well, you can easily ensure that toner is not wasted. Monitoring the usage of each machine will help you understand who/why your employees keep running through toner each month. Also, if you’re the owner of the business and need to know what to order, it can all easily be monitored from an easy-to-use dashboard. Instead of having to always check the printer to make sure you’re not going to run out, get notified ahead of time, so you are not stranded without toner.

If you have any questions about how this works, please feel  to call us at 888-722-0390, or email us at
