Phaser 8400 & 8500/8560 Ink Sticks

There is a post on the web where a person states that Phaser 8400 & 8500/8560 Ink Sticks/blocks are interchangable. Has anyone else had any experience with this?

Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't think so, not only are the part numbers different on the official Xerox ink, they also differ on the 3rd party sites as well.

I could not find anything on any site saying they would work.

 

Staples 8400 , Staples 8560

Suppliesguys 8400 , Suppliesguys 8560

inktechnologies.com Artisan brand

 

If they actually worked I would think the non-Xerox branded 3rd party inks wouldn't bother with different packaging, part numbers etc.

 

Also, since the 8400 inks are cheaper, places like Amazon would likely have people in the reviews explaining that you could save money by buying  that ink for the 8560, and that appears to not be the case.

Thanks, Joe. I was just wondering the same since we just replaced our 8400DX with an 8560DN and we have a ton of 8400 ink sticks :^(

Out of coursity I did an amazon search:

 

KAT39393 Phaser 8560 Compatible, 108R00727 Solid Ink, 6800 Yld, 6/Box, Black

 

http://www.amazon.com/KAT39393-Phaser-Compatible-108R00727-Solid/dp/B006S1BA5O/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qi...

 

Honestly, It looks like the shape is slightly different; so is the ink itself the same? Thoughts?

Found this on Google:

 

Ink for the 8400 and 8500 are made of different ink
The 8400/8500 are 24ppm, the 8550 is 30ppm
to get the extra pageg out the printer works faster and at a hotter temp in the head, so the ink has been made different to work atthis hotter temp (Thats why they are different shape, like from the 860/8200/8400)

I don't know if this is a valid acessment or not; consider the source (the Internet).

 

Later, Ben
