Folks, this model Xerox is an expensive printer, and it's only rated for business graphics not photos! But all the 11x17 size toner printers are expensive! I've been using the much less expensive KonicaMinolta lettersized printers for nearly 10 years. Only the class 9600 dpi versions are good enough for pretty good photographic quality. No, they are not as good as from even cheap inkjet on good media, but I would say on most images "equivalent" to commercial 4-color printing. I use my MagicColor 4650 for printing note cards cheaply and quickly on card stock that is pre-cut to 10x7" and pre-scored by a commercial printer for me. The cost of this paper works out to about 10 cents a sheet, compared to 30+ cents for inkjet paper. I figure my toner costs per card at about 15 cents. This allows me to "print on demand" note cards instead of investing $1000's in commercial printing.
This is the 3rd model KonicaMinolta 9600dpi printer I have owned. Each model has printed significantly better and faster than the model before. These class of printers are commonly available for less than $500 complete with toner. It's almost cheaper to buy a new printer, than to buy the replacement toner carts! ;-)
