Xerox ColorQube 8900/ASM review

The ColorQube 8900 multifunction peripheral (MFP) is a solid-ink printer, with a snappy 44ppm colour printing speed, 7in colour touchscreen and 120,000 page monthly output.

Price
£2,200

Xerox describes the ColorQube 8900 as a desktop printer, and although it fits onto a desk it's not as compact as a consumer device. Packaged printers arrive on a pallet weighing 72kg. Even the unpacked device weighs 46kg, making the installation a two-man job, although thoughtful recesses do make handling easier.

The 8900 is similar in physical appearance to the cheaper 8700, but is sold with Xerox's PagePack managed print services covering consumables and maintenance.

The 46kg weight means installation is a two person job

There's an impressive solidity to the MFP's body, with Xerox's white and blue plastic feeling thick and resistant to flex. Good build quality is evident in the main 525-sheet paper tray, which glides out smoothly and is fitted with easily-adjusted paper guides. These feel robust enough to stand up to ream after ream being loaded in.

The standard models have a 625-sheet input capacity. This can be expanded to a maximum 3,475 sheets and a cabinet stand is available to convert the unit to a floor-standing model. Other paper handling options include a 650-page office finishing unit with 50-sheet stapling capability.
