This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago, The Third Week in October 2003

 

Crap there's a ton of threads below!  From 1998-2003 many of us in the copier industry ew nothing about network printing and scanning. In addition neither did our managers and techs.  The Print4Pay Hotel allowed us have a community where we could share experiences technical stuff and help meet our client expectations.  Fifteen years later and all dealerships have on staff IT people and knowledgeable technicians that can handle most everything. 

Enjoy the threads from 15 years ago this week!

RIDING THE WAVE OF WORKGROUP COLOR

excellent image quality, the Xerox and Minolta models are ideally positioned for color applications within corporate environments. The second camp encompasses those manufacturers who are marketing machines where color is positioned as a feature. Consider the latest generation of workgroup products from Ricoh and Toshiba. These devices are a harbinger of things to come. While Ricoh holds the pioneering position in being the first to market with workgroup color devices—the Aficio 1224C and 1232C

Does anyone have any info on when the 2022/27's will be released? I need them by 11-15-03.

Graham, "yup" to TWAIN I presume? I called Ricoh pre-sales support and the person I spoke with said "no" after they put me on hold for a while trying to figure out what it was ... then they told me "no" based on the fact that they could not find a TWAIN driver for it on the Ricoh website ... so ... it does have TWAIN ... that means I can select it as a scanner in programs such as Adober Acrobat and/or ScanSoft OmniPage ... yes???

From what I have seen, looks like December or so. (This is all hearsay though). If we can get the information, it may be worth having them wait on the 22/27 models. Also, on that kind of deal, if Ricoh has the inventory sooner, I would think they would do something for a deal maker. GT

1060 Memory Question

I am having a really hard time getting a straight answer concerning whether or not there is a need to add memory to the print/scan kit. The Configurator says that 256MB is highly recommended but not a must. The systems ship with 64MB and 128MB is added to the kit, correct? Will the units print and scan with this amount of memory? If not, why isn't the kit equipped with the correct amount of memory? What happens to the 128MB DIMM when the 256MB is added?
