2090 PDF Printing

Be careful when placing the 2090 in an environment with Scanned PDF images. We just learned a huge lesson in an account where this was the main application. The 2090 with the print scan board and PS option performed terrible. Probably will lose to the 8500 w/ M1. Ricoh is aware of the problem

Re: FW470 vs Xerox 8550

·
Art, The 8550 appears to be nothing great. The copy output is 400dpi. I would bet that the Ricoh can process and print faster than the Xerox due to the differences in controllers. X uses a 700mhz power pc. We use a 2.4 mhz pentium 4 processor with 512megs ram. I think that only in a certain best case scenario for Xerox that it would outperform the Ricoh. Also I believe they can only scan at 400dpi. We are able to scan at 600dpi. They will champion the toner in that it is supposed to produce

What is Anne M up to these days?

As a result, Xerox returned to full-year profitability in 2002, generating $1.9 billion in operating cash flow and $91 million in net income on $15.8 billion in sales. Its market share in many products is up. For instance, it now holds 70% of the high-volume monochrome printer market, up two points from

Printer Kit on 1060/1075

On the 1060/1075 Printer/Scanner Kit, it comes with the Print/scan Dimm, NIC and the extra 128MB memory required to print...correct? I have a remote DMAP order and the dealer is saying it doesn't come with it, I am 99% sure it does...I have been wrong before but I don't think on this one. Let me know. Thanks, -=Mike=-

Re: Selling against Offset Press

metal plate can vary and I have found the cost to average around $6 per palte. So we have the cost of the plate and then the time to make the plate, prep the plate, get the plate to the press and then set the press for "make ready sheets". In a Union shop, with time, labor, benes, overhead and materials the cost is somewhere between $29.00 to $37 per plate (the time from start to finish is 25 to 30 minutes). In the sales cycle you must speak about this to the customer and have him agree or

XRX has to fork over $22.2 million in fines

and other actions fraudulently allowed Xerox to move forward about $3 billion in sales and inflate pre-tax earnings by about $1.4 billion from 1997 to 2000, the SEC said. Berger said Allaire was aware of the scheme and “fraudulently failed to disclose that information to shareholders and the investing public.” To settle the suit, the executives must pay their own personal and civil fines. That includes $1 million each for Allaire and Romeril, $750,000 for Thoman, $100,000 for Fishbach, and

These type of places pop up every now and then and can be a real pain. I hope you were able to match the maintenance program. For 12K a year you pay $234.00 ($.0195 per copy) and , if you read the fine print of the contract is says "3.

Re: Printer Kit on 1060/1075

You must add 128 MB. The mainframe comes with 128, but the Printer Kit OR the Printer/Scanner Kit require 256. That means we must add 128. Otherwise all else is fine with what you put in your topic. Make sure you are using DMAP dated 8 April 2003 or later, the Printer/Scanner Kit cost came down to the cost of the Printer Only Kit and the Printer only kit is no longer listed.

Re: Konica 2820

My guess is the customer, as is the case in more instances than not, is slightly off the mark. There are two model numbers that resemble that number: 7820 and 7020. The 7820 is a color printer, the 7020 is a copier. Good luck!

Re: Konica 2820

There is also an 8020 and 8031 color copier/printer model. I have seen both and the quality is very impressive. They are both 31ppm b&w and 20ppm and 31ppm in color, respectively.

Has anybody heard of this website? I lost quite a bit of GP on a deal because my customer did a search for copiers on Yahoo and found this site. I didn't lose the deal, but had to match their price which obviously stinks! Between this and Ricoh's online store - prices are being driven down on deals. Any thoughts or suggestions if these people are a dealer, fraud, etc? Thanks

can access the files and print them if they need to on the 551. This would be a much better solution if they need to store docs. Then when you upgrade their machine, anyone but the 1055 will allow you to scan the docs. to the solution.
