From: Joseph Mahaney Date: Thursday, January 06, 2005 02:13 PM Myself and my company have been having a hard time every time we come up against Konica Minolta.

Does anyone share this problem or does anyone have any ideas how to combat this problem without dropping my pants? this is a repsot from the AF League

470W "is the cost to dealers too high?"

Guest ·
Some of you may have noticed the recent "sweepstakes" promo for the 470W. It is an "OK" promo, seems likes 240W sales have slowed the 470W to a crawl. The 240W prints @ 4 pages a minute compare to 6 for the 470W, and yes the 470W can handle a higher volume per month and has a dual roll feeder standard and also has a better stacking system. However, how can Ricoh justify the cost of the 470W now?, based on DMAP level 1 pricing the 470W ia almost twice the cost of the 240W and it does not give

Date: Friday, January 07, 2005 11:27 AM John a real nice simple alternative would be to place the CL7100 printer and add the IS300e scanner. You get scan to applications: e-mail, SMB, FTP and you also get the ability to scan directly to the CL7100 for output (I guess we would call it copying). The only limitation is we cannot have the fax option ... then again Konica Minolta does not have a fax option on their C350 system either. Our advantage is, you only need 1 scanner and you could place

Properly presented, you can show your prospect the big savings managing paper electronically provides versus managing their expensive physical filing system.

240 Sizing problem fixed

·
Here's one I saw today that could happen anywhere: On a 240, customer was trying to send 18" wide x 12" long prints thru PlotClient WIN. There was an 18" roll in the roll feeder. Auto Roll Select was on, Auto Rotate was on, but copies kept printing out on an 18 x 18 sheet...the image size was correct, but depending on where it was put (ie: top center, middle center, ect) the sheet remained 18 x 18 with blank white areas. SIMPLE SOLUTION: the Paper Tray size in the copier itself was not changed

The lack of replies to your post hopefully means that there couldn't be any improvements, the site is excellent!! I really like this site, I learn lots from it, and it gives me a sense of "community". I really appreciate your hard work on it. I have tried to come up with improvements, but can't think of any. The only thing I could possibly say is that increasing the membership adds more knowledge and insights. I tell any Ricoh people I come in contact with about your site, and some have joined

Here is the dilema...2075 doesn't have an optional bookletmaker (don't bring up the SR861 Saddle Stitch Finisher, it's not the same) and even if we could afford tandem 2090's, my service department won't let me put them in at that low a volume.
