Death of a Xerox 425

Can't believe the customer got me on this one, said they had been getting pricing on similar units. They mentioned the Xerox 425, Sharp 277 and the iR2200. Xerox was so low it was a crime! However, I did not realize that this unit was introduced in Sept of 2001!!!! When I saw the picture, I thought...."gee am I dumb"! Well for the heck of it I put together an excel spreadsheet for the good, the bad and the ugly on all three of these products. Please download and add any ideas or other systems

Re: Ricoh 2232/38 sometime in Feb?

Greg: Thanx, I will make the comment. Lets see, Ricoh Dealers, RBS, Savin, Savin Dealers, Lanier, Lanier Dealers, IBM and now Toshiba. When the competition is down, do you lend them a hand to get back in the ring? Do you offer them technology that they don't have? I for one think not! If Ricoh is doing this just to get thier hands on a decent graphics color device they are making a mistake. I have given up in the color grahics arena (except where a customer is open to the AP3850C). I believe

First, what 50cpm Toshiba color are y'all talking about? I can't find a 50cpm Toshiba color on their website or in the books. The only 50cpm colors I can find are Canon and Konica. Second, Toshiba makes SHARP's 55-65-80 cpm B/W, not the other way around.

So let me get this strait....Sharp is Making the Toshiba 55-65-80 ppm machines and Ricoh is going to make their 90 and 105 ppm machines? Am I right here???

Re: Ricoh 2232/38 sometime in Feb?

Jayson has it right, we will have a 50ppm copier/printer from Toshiba and a new 32 and 28 ppm copier/printer (ricoh OEM) with saddle stitcher. Rumor has it Ricoh is going to drop the 1224 and 1232 from the line up as soon as inventory has been depleted. This is due to the excessive cycling of the equipment (there is no fix).

Re: GBC Stream Punch jamming

Had streampunch installed on our demo room machine for "2 days" ran about 1,000 punches worked great! Customer is running 2-2105 tandem and each machine runs approximately 350-450,000/month; approx. 10-15% 19 hole punched. I think they are still finding "chads" on the floor even though we have removed it from the unit. Still no word from Ricoh nor GBC on "the fix". Hoping for the latter part of the week for a reply. Side note: does Canon IR105 offer same GBC unit or none at all?

Re: Ricoh 2232/38 sometime in Feb?

Art, I think that is accurate and I was confusing the topic with creative color. The temporary creative color solution will be Toshiba OEM. I'm surprised nobody commented on Toshiba having access to the 2090/2105.

Unfortunately my sources say the 2035/45 will not have an upgrade path for SMB. Ricoh will have a 2035e/2045e sometime in the second quarter that will have all the features of 2022/27.

I heard we will have 2 new BW and color machines 1st qtr. They will be based on a" copier version of the CL7000 engine"(not the 1224/32) but have some new features and ACS(finally). Also heard we will have a 35ppm color and BW printer (no copier????) sometime around March. I was told the CL 7000 series will be repositioned.

Just an opinion but while their faxes are great low end machines, from what I see their color printers will not run as reliable as I think a printer should. their warranty for replacement boards is very good but you cannot even order parts from their web site. As for parts sometimes I wait for weeks for a common gear or motor. In a low volume enviroment say 200 prints a month there okay. I like their price point and their dot printers, their faxes and low end printers. Just one persons opinion
