Xerox Phaser 8560 vs HP Color Laserjet CP3505

Comparison on the Xerox Phaser 8560 vs. HP Color LaserJet CP3505

The Xerox Phaser 8560 is designed for speed, durability and efficiency. The ink technology utilized within the Phaser’s design produces stunning visual results for the user. It has a 20,000 page duty-cycle advantage over the HP LaserJet, and the ticket price is also lower.

Total Ownership Cost

Price tags help customers assess a printer; however, a total-ownership analysis can reveal critical information about how the machine will perform over time. The Phaser 8560 was compared to the LaserJet over a 3-year period in order to assess the cumulative cost of ownership. The comparison was based on Hewlett-Packard’s volume recommendation, which was between 1,500 and 5,000 pages each month. The Phaser demonstrated its ability to save owners between $360 and $1,280 during that period.

Maintenance and Waste

The cost of operating a printer is affected by any maintenance expenses incurred over time. A distinguishing characteristic of the Phaser 8560 is its simple design, which makes changing ink cartridges both safe and easy. The LaserJet, on the other hand, has multiple moving components that could be damaged if the cartridges were to be installed incorrectly.

Another figure that indicates the effective design of the Phaser 8560 is the amount of waste produced for each batch of 100,000 pages. While the LaserJet CP3505 produces 157 lbs. of waste, the Phaser 8560 produces a scant 5 lbs. for the same print volume. The Phaser 8560 is a flexible and dynamic printer that will add significant value to any business over multiple years.
