This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago, The First Week in May 2003

Nice thread about the Seri Printer below. I recently sold a Seri Printer with a Ricoh HQ9000 duplicator, well it was last year.  I ran across the perfect application and pretty much knew there was no one else in the US that would even think of offering the Seri Printer and the Duplicator.  Ricoh discontinued the Seri Printer in the US about ten years ago.  To make a long story short I met the inventor of the Seri Print back in 2002 when I visited Japan.  He was England or Scotland I think.  I reached out to him about the Seri, they were still offering the product. We imported the Seri, combined it with the duplicator and made 40K GP a little over a year ago. It was AWESOME

How about this way ... offer the 1055 along with a network fax device. This will offer scanning without the need to tie up the copier. 55 page per minute Copier/Printer is for productivity of output ... right? Some of the fax models can do all of the scanning features of the 1060 ... plus in color - your customer might see the value of that.

Well, they are still accepting orders using GEM Promo for qualified accounts. I just sent one in last week, and it went through. What I heard was that the Gov. people through a fit because Ricoh was allowing special pricing reserved for them to be used by "normal" customers. In order to meet the Gov's requirements, Ricoh can not offer the special Gov pricing to "normal" customers. Makes sense to me.

Re: Murder of a 1018d

If the cost per copy is anywhere near what it is supposed to be, like .018 or .019 or there abouts, this should help justify an upgrade. That means that an appropriate placement of a Ricoh 1035 at .012 per copy would save the client about $65 per month and a 1035 backed by a good service team will last at least 4 years. At a reasonably agressive $160 per month, it costs $95. And, there's got to be something in the way of prints or faxes that you can migrate to the system to help. At 8500 per

This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago, The First Week of February 2003

Ok, I get it, seems like 15 years ago there were some active weeks and maybe a few slower weeks with threads.

What I did see is a thread from Monte!  Which is really cool, Monte and I speak from time to time and we've developed a relationship over the years. It's really something when you can develop that kind of relationship by communicating in a forum.  There's been many times that Monte helped me get a deal because of his knowledge and I'm sure I've helped him out a few time also.  But, that's what the Print4Pay Hotel forums is all about. We help each other in our industry to sell more and support our families!

From: Ted Sent: 11/22/2002 6:28 AM I'm sure it would not have been difficult for Ricoh to put the same features, i.e. all the user stamp functions and booklet making mode on the 3800CMF. However, they still need a reason for us to sell the B (&W) 35cpm machines. Once they get the cost of the black toner cost down, the 35cpm, in my opinion, will become obsolete. You can easily cost justify the 3800CMF vs the AF1035 with all the extra you get. Just the cost of the Black is too high right now.

book so he can learn it. What a mess! As for setting the number of prints, you can also do it from the front screen, you just need to make sure the coalate box is unchecked. Since this is a known issue (the coalate box) hopefully, in time Ricoh will do something to simplify this for the customers within their drivers.

However, he mentioned that the printers have the capability for IP printing? A few questions. 1. Could we plug an Aficio 1022 w/scan router lite and have the docs directed to the printer for IP printing? No, this is not a capability of any of the ScanRouter Products. 2.

Re: Sharp Digital (Old RE-POST)

From: spressomon Sent: 6/20/2002 4:54 PM All I can tell you the few departments within one of my major accounts (local county) hates all their Sharps, even the newer digitals. They are not reliable and very service intensive. Their pricing structure (both hardware and service rates) are always more than our GSA Equiv. Additionally I have had to buyout a number of these leases, even in our local county government installations, due to poor quality, reliablility and lack of support from Sharp

3800 CMF Paper Supply

From: couchpotato Original Message) Sent: 12/20/2002 8:30 AM Why does Ricoh take away the LCT option for the 3800CMF? I know that when Printer only configurations are used it is available. It seems crazy to claim 200k per month volume w/ 1500 sheet paper supply (oh, don't forget the 100 sheet bypass). Any ideas?

Can We Do This?

·
From: ricohaficio (Original Message) Sent: 5/31/2002 3:43 PM Question: I have an Aficio 1022 w/Scan Router (full version) connected w Win 2000. I also have AP3800C on the network, is there anyway to set a destination ikon on the Scan Panel so that whe we scan a document it will print to the AP3800C? Or is there a way we can scan it to a folder and have it print as soon as it's recieved in the folder with no user intervention?
