"Cynical marketing leaves a sour taste"2.0 starson by catalystchris
Pros: The printer is as good as the 8560, but...
Cons: With cashback - what a bargain NOT!
We've had the 8550 and the 8560, both of which had alternative, much cheaper inksticks available.
Xerox has worked hard to stop this in the 8570 and charge the earth for their exclusive inksticks.

Summary: I would have bought this printer, which we use for indelible labels, at the full price.
With the cashback, £199 seemed wonderful value.
Then I discovered that it really was too good to be true. Replacement ink costs more than the printer!
I can understand anyone buying this printer with a few spare sticks thrown in then junking it when the ink runs out.
Do Xerox really consider this waste environmentaly-friendly?
If the alternative suppliers come up with cheaper inksticks to reduce print costs per sheet, I would give this printer 5 stars.
