Oki is discontinuing their C9800 which leaves maybe one (Xerox), color laser printer (A3) with a fiery. Id anyone knows of any others on the market, I'd like to know about it. I know I could place a quite a few of these in a short amount of time, if they had a fiery. Art

It sounds to me like you're not a "down the street" rep. The timing for the release of the product missed the mark. It should have been earlier in the year. Double Holidays Thanksgiving and the doom and gloom on the news has killed commerical sales, at least here in the NE. I'm suprised that Ricoh has no trade in promos for any of the

We're starting to work on offering more cost per page total inclusive contracts. Where we supply the hardware and everything for x cents per page with a certain base commitment. I understand that in order to be successful at this, it might be necessary to offer some remanufactured HP printers and partner with some good supply sources to get the lowest possible TCO. Does anyone have any input on what HP printers might be a good fit for this? Thanks!

Note that this is only valid for the previous generation Ricoh Aficio MP C3500/C4500, and not the new Color MFPs that launched in October.

I don't think there's any reason why Vista would be a problem. If it's an spf or has the AIO-kit and can SMB scan to an XP workstation it should be able to. If it has only the "Enhanced DDST" Print Kit, it will be only TWAIN.
