Sophisticated simplicity Sometimes it's the little things - like loading ink - that slow you down. Not with the Phaser 8500 / 8550 printers. They are designed to make office life more efficient. Easy for user

- -  Compact, no-mess ink sticks are as easy to load as a stapler. You can drop them into their slots at any time.
- -  Run out of color ink? No problem. You can continue to print in black-only mode if you prefer.
- -  You can keep a personal mailbox on the printer's hard drive (optional on Phaser 8550 only). So if you're late for a meeting and need an extra copy of something you've printed - just walk up to the printer, select the stored job and hit 'print'.
- -  These printers keep track of your printing habits. The Intelligent Ready feature learns when you print most and warms up or enters power-saving mode accordingly.
- -  There's no training required. An internet-based automated support system provides help when you need it. Plus, the Support Centre utility provides quick access to all the user documentation, tools and utilities that come with the printer. Simple for administrators
- -  Installation made easy. It's out of the box and on your network in just four steps.
- -  Off-site Xerox keeps you in the loop. A built-in web server allows you to manage, configure and troubleshoot printers from anywhere using a web browser.
- -  Enjoy quick desktop access to printer and job status, email alerts, simplified printer installation and network administration.
