Pros: none now that it is having issues.
Cons: Bought card on 2/23/2013 to replace an older ATI Radeon HD-4550 and right after the one year mark I started getting reboots, frozen screens, green lines across the screen, sometimes it would take 3 or 4 reboots to get the card working again. Installed a new Corsair 600W power supply and problem remains. Computer is not OC or used for newer intense games, going back to Radeon chipset.
Other Thoughts: would not recommandREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Comes with eSATA bracket and cable.
Cons: Fan is extremely noisy right out of the box, makes a rattling sound like the bearings are bad, no rubber feet to keep unit from sliding around and marring up you desk and the USB cable is very short.
Don't buy this unless you are willing to replace the fan yourself.
Other Thoughts: Went to RMA unit due to the extremely noisy fan that rattles but the return shipping cost is half the cost of the item so I kept it and replaced the fan myself, better off buying a new fan yourself and replacing the junk fan that Rosewill uses then returning it. I told myself that I would not but Rosewill again but two years later I thought I would give them another chance and once again I get cheap junk that I have to fix myself to make it work correctly, I now promised myself to never buy Rosewill again and I will recommend that others stay away from Rosewill too.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Xerox SolidQube 8570/DN Color Solid Ink Printer
Pros: Superb color printing.
Cons: Cost and repairs. If you're a home user who only prints color every now and then this printer is not for you.
Unlike the other IT tech who commented how great this model is I am here to counter his comment, as a certified Xerox tech I can tell you what will go wrong and about what time it will happen.
You can plan on some major repairs around 80,000 - 120,000 pages. The process drive assy, maintenance camshaft, drum maint pivot plate, media drive assy, electronic control assy, and print head are going to go bad. Around 120,000 pages and up you can plan on replacing the transfix arms and cam assy.
Then there is the problem with the process drive mounting pins which will snap off, the only way to repair that is to use a kit from Xerox where you have to drill out the old pins and install the new metal kit.
Unlike laser printers and inkjet printers these solid ink Xerox printers have a lot of moving parts which are synched and work in timing with each other, one part goes bad and the whole printer is down.
Other Thoughts: I think everyone should know the truth about what they are buying and if you're going to spend this much money on a printer you should know the inherent problems that equipment will have. Now Xerox support is great and if you have warranty they get you back up and running ASAP.READ FULL REVIEW
