I saw the 8000 in action at a commercial "blueprint" shop and it was very impressive. The quality on 20 lb bond was great, and very fast. The guys running the machine said operational costs were significantly less than the KIPs they replaced it with. And very reliable...I believe they ran 1.5 million sq ft without a problem. They replaced the cutter on their own, pretty easily. I'm exclusively a Ricoh WF dealer, but these things scare me due to the loss of service/parts revenue I would incur if I needed to place one. Yes, the size/weight is a detriment, and predicting ink cost is always tricky. But it appears this technology may have some legs to stand on.
