I have been using HP printer at office for last about three years. Recently I required a printer at home too I made my choice in favour of Xerox DocuPrint C8 mainly for it being cheap and having separate ink tanks for different colours in its cartridge. Since then I have had a love-hate relationship with the device. My experience of last three months with Xerox DocuPrint C8 can be summarised in following paragraphs. PRINTER AND CARTRIDGE ====================== * A light weight and compact printer. Has paper feeding tray on top. Printed papers will also be received at the top. A remove-able plastic sheet is used to separate the prints from blank ... Read the complete review

I fell for a modest con trick recently when I was offered a "free" C8. The condition was that you buy a set of the smaller colour cartridges, not necessarily the high capacity black. I felt slightly uneasy about it, so I telephoned and asked if this meant that I would have 2 sets of cartridges for my £30 + £10 delivery + VAT (=£47) and the answer was no, what they were doing was getting you to pay for the set already included with the printer! However, £47 still seemed a good deal, so I went ahead. the latest Viking price is about £58, by the way, so it looks as though Xerox are dumping the things! However, as a printer, I am ...

I bought a C8 printer when my old faithful Hewlett Packard gave up the ghost, I bought it via an auction on the yahoo auction site & it cost £70. I bought it not knowing anything about that particular brand the only Xerox printer I could find in the shops at the time was a C6 at £1 cheaper. I was pleasently suprised, the set up was dead easy & it was up & running within minutes. One huge advantage is the 4 seperate ink tank system which means not wasting a cartridge when 1 colour runs out. I thought there may be a problem buying new cartridges as no shops seemed to sell the machine but I needent have worried as PC World sold them.The price was £7.99 ... Read the complete review

I decided to try the docuprint C8 when freecolourpinters.com were offering them for £40. I really wish I hadn't bothered. The idea is great - four individual ink tanks so you are not wasting ink but as they are around £10 each you don't see any saving. Don't touch the compatible ones, they are so thin and you end up with a soggy mess. The printing quality is ok but I had a lot of problems with paper jamming or not feeding through properly. It is also very noisy. It does a print head maintenance thing daily but this can be any time day or night and has often woken me up. You cannot have a conversation while it is working. ...

My Xerox C8 came as part of a computer package from Currys, to buy separately at the time it cost £49. It worked fine until it came to replacing the cartridges and after that for some reason it never worked properly ever again! It was exceptionally noisy and a major disadvantage is that it has no on/off button meaning every time I switched my computer on, the printer would start whirring away which was annoying. Paper jams were also a common occurence. Instead of having a black and colour cartridge, it has 4 separate cartridges, this is supposed to be an advantage so that you only need to replace the single empty cartridge. Trust me, it is not an advantage, it just . Read the complete review
