Xerox 8560 solid ink printers - anyone tried compatibles?
As usual there's a major difference between original and compatible prices.
Was wondering if anyone here uses the above printer, and if they've shoved compatibles in. How did they respond?

Didn't have a 8560 but a 8400 but the principles the same. First thing to go is the tonal quality of the colours - they tend to look muddy, the next is the consumption - this tends to go up negating some of the savings involved and finally the print head (nozzels matrix) tends to block at a greater rate and this is bye bye pinter problem when it gets obvious as the heads are the same cost as the printer..
To be honest having run these type of printer as a main stream printer and a specialist printer for the heads PA I would only run them as specialist printers.

Thanks for the reply. Going to have to consider forking out more for originals, then, it seems...

I use compatibles in our one, and have so far had no problems with then, and they are a lot cheaper. We have only had it for 6 months thou.
