Re: Identity Thieves Can Hit the Jackpot with Digital Copiers

JasonR ·
Interesting, but still overstating the value. As an identity thief (hypothetically), I'd be an idiot to spend a "few hundred bucks" on a copier hard drive on the off chance that someone may have once copied something with their credit card info on it. Even if you did once copy that, the chances I'll be able to recover that data (both the Ricoh and Canon copiers delete immediately after use and those areas are marked as reusable) after thousands of other documents may have overwritten it is

At the end of term, who pays to ship the copier back to the leasing company?

SalesServiceGuy ·
Most sales reps do not fully explain to the customer, their end of term lease obligations. It is the customer's obligation and expense to return the equipment to the leasing company. Most dealers will take care of this expense, if they flip one of their own copiers into a new copier. Many dealers will not take care of this expense if a competitor flips one of their machines. Many competitive sales reps will not bring up the topic hoping the incumbent dealer will take care of the removal

Really. After 2008 came and went without a Memjet printer, and then 2009 did the same, you might have been forgiven for deciding that Memjet printers were just vaporware that you'd never see in real life.

Re: MFP Refurbishing & Recycling

In Nova Scotia, Canada we are no longer allowed to dispose of copiers by taking them to the landfill. We must pay a local moving company $30.00 per hour (or send our tech to their premises) to disassemble the copier into it glass, metal, plastic & electronic components. These components are then placed in different bins for recycling. It can take approx two hours. The tech does not have to be delicate in the disassembly so wire cutters, crowbars and sledge hammers are now part of our tool kit

In the public sector I see the 501 selling for an average of $4,811 without options. It has a $12,300 MSRP. In contracts with monthly commitments it generally carries a CPC of around $0.0085, but can range from $0.007 to $0.012. In agreements with committed MPVs above 10k, CPCs average $0.0066 - but that includes very high commitments as well. The bizhub C650 has been discontinued since February 09, so who knows how low they can offer this one. In the public sector the C650 sells for an average

Re: KM Promo

This is just another marketing sales tool. What there are not showing is the buyout at the lease end. It is always a FMV. KM is using there own leasing arm. If you use a lease factor of .0278 this will show you a 0% interest. We have in state government accounts, what is call a deferred payment lease. This is the state price divided by 36 months. 0 interest, 0 down, 0 buyout at the lease end. But the sell price is fixed.
