This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago, The Third Week of March 2008

Enjoy the threads from ten years ago this week.

Ricoh MPC6000 vs Xerox WC7665

·
Just got hammered on the 2400dpi vs 600dpi on Ricoh. I didn't think you could get 2400dpi on a laser system. I obviously didn't do a good job with the customer. Any ideas on the resolution difference?

Re: Ricoh MPC6000 vs Xerox WC7665

You are just lucky that they did not bring up the fact that the Xerox is 8 bit vs the Ricoh 4 bit. Whenever someone starts talking about resolution say that 600x600 is true dpi. Anything over 600x600 is an emulation. Simply put, the machine guesses where dots should go so your solids tend to be inconsistent. See if that works.

I have yet to sell the Savin C6055 (MPC6000) also but was just told that my cost will be $1600 for the supplies when selling this model. Woe, not good! As a matter of fact, I have sold the C3535 (MPC3500?) a few times and I think I was not charged, does that come with starter toners and developer?

Check the competitive comparison to the 5560 in the aficio league. According to the specs listed, the Xerox is only 600 dpi.
