Xerox 8500 Printer Review

The Xerox 8500 is a solid ink color printer ideal for a medium sized office. The size, speed, and power of this printer makes it a good choice for medium sized offices that need a printer that can meet their needs while still remaining compact. The Xerox 8500 has a monthly duty cycle of as much as 85,000 pages, while still only measuring 16 inches wide, 21 inches deep, and 14.5 inches tall.

Despite it’s compact size, the Xerox 8500 does not force users to sacrifice on speed or quality. For both black and white and full color prints, the Xerox 8500 prints at an average rate of 24 pages per minute, with a standard resolution of 600 dpi by 600 dpi. The Xerox 8500 comes with four Xerox ink sticks, which are designed to produce, vivid, even color throughout the life of the ink. These Xerox 8500 ink sticks come in black, magenta, yellow, and cyan and can produce a high page yield without sacrificing on quality. The standard page capacity of the Xerox 8500 is 625 sheets, with the option to upgrade to a page capacity of 1675. The printer is powered by a 600 MHz processor, and comes with 128 MB of memory installed. The memory of this printer can be upgraded to as much as 512 MB.

For connectivity, the Xerox 8500 needs only a wired Ethernet connection, and a high speed USB cable. The USB cable for the Xerox 8500 can be purchased from an office or computer supply retailer.
