Hopefully there are more A3 style components that will allow it to become an option for A4 customers printing on heavier stocks and media.

Another major advantage is the availability of all PaperLocks (and other hardware accessories) that were already developed for Ricoh's A3 line. Please check https://www.solutionconfigurator.com/#b/37/m/946 & https://www.copiersolutionshop.com/

Great points! Too often, following the path of least resistance (being lazy) can catch up with you! And- speaking of A4, we are really pleased that Canon has announced the replacement A4 mid vol series. We really needed a good A4 b&w with finishing, and hopefully this will be it!

CPP is very low for the AIO unit. This is a new engine, so overall service costs are estimates only at this time. Canon looks to have a winning combo on their hands. Where's Ricoh and KM in this segment?

As much as I am not a fan of A4, but realizing it’s our necessary evil, I hope they do. The A4 has for the most part killed it for us as sales people. We have to sell many more units to make the same revenue....revenue, I say....profit margin is good for the most part, but we still have to sell more united to keep everyone happy. Was the worst thing a manufacturer could do in my opinion.

Ink is here to stay, however it seems like a slow adoption rate from many of the major manufacturers in the SMB market. Ink based MFP's could be the salvation to many service departments that have aging service technicians.

Re: Ten Reasons Why the New Ricoh IM 350F, IM 430F and IM 430Fb is a Winner

Old Glory ·
Slight correction...both the IM 430F and the IM 430Fb are 43 ppm. Additional info...the 430F (SP 501) has a Service Maintenance platform while the 430Fb (SP 502) has a User Maintenance platform. The SP 510 and SP 502 are printer only versions of their respective MFP's. As far as I know, the SP's and the IM 350 (350F without a standard fax) have not been launched yet. It is interesting to note that the service training does not reference the MP 301SPF or the MP 402SPF at all. The new IM units...

This new copier line is one of the first to introduce a SSD 256 GB HDD as a standard feature. To date, I think all copier vendors have been using a 2.5" platter based HDD designed for laptop computers. I am wondering out loud the pros and cons of this choice. First off: 1). In all RFPs that I have seen the buyer is requesting a HDD and never a SSD. Konica Minolta is going to have to be constantly requesting amendments to RFPs. Maybe in the Konica Minolta new design there is the option to...

I would not be surprised to see Konica Minolta release a G model for Gov't bid business with a HDD installed. The USA GSA and DOD demands FIPPs certified drives these days and I do not think a SSD will cut it without a lengthy certification process. According to BLI, the First Copy Out times on the new series are up to 15% faster compared to their immediate predecessor models. These could be as much do to the 8 GB RAM and the Quad core processor as the SSD by itself. Many of the new features...

As this is a new series of products that have not entered the USA before, as new inventory arrives, any tariffs will be fully baked into the cost.

Re: "MFP Wars" Hi Speed A3 MFP's vs A4 MFP's

Ray Stasiezcko ·
Art, one of the problems is dealers servicing a machine for $30.00 a month. however, the reality is the industry has allowed the sales engine to destroy the service model. selling full service on A3 for .006 or less in volumes of 5k a month. Dealers were chasing sales revenue as they sacrificed service profits. As volumes continue declining so will margins. Dealers will begin realizing that all the A3 service they gave away is too costly to manage and the shift will begin. The A4...

Re: "MFP Wars" Hi Speed A3 MFP's vs A4 MFP's

Hi Ray I agree with the silliness of the low cost per page for A3. However most dealers have escalators that can raise the price as much as 10-15% per year whether it's A4 or A3. AS far as the $30 per month, almost no one will send out and invoice for $30 It's either billed quarterly or annually. One thing the A4 manufacturers won't due is too sacrifice the consumables. I also believe that dealers will always find a way to make their profit, whether it's Daas, flat rate, or seat based. I...

Re: "MFP Wars" Hi Speed A3 MFP's vs A4 MFP's

Art, another piece of the equation is that monthly units placed are 45% to 74% mono A4 in the segment 3 and segment 4 speed range. Online retail is $170 to $600 where used A3’s are three times that amount. The real question here is what these placements are doing to the service department revenue and eventually to staffing.

Re: "MFP Wars" Hi Speed A3 MFP's vs A4 MFP's

I've always sold A4 machines where they are a fit. There are very few A4 devices that offer a low CPC. Some carry CPCs that are very high. A bigger issue in many placements is that the Automatic Document Feeders on most A4 machines are not robust enough to meet the copy scan and fax demand. Many are complete garbage. In fact I've seen the quality of the Domument Feeders on A4 units go backwards in the last couple of years as if the document feeder is an afterthought or it is where the...

Re: SINDOH N707 -- Smart Solution Hybrid MFP

txeagle24 ·
It's kind of nifty, but I can't see any of my clients making a buying decision based on that niche feature. It's really slow, an odd process, & in all reality, if they need to scan an 11x17 document, it was probably printed internally, & a lot more A3 MFPs are sold than A3 SFPs, so it's likely that they have an A3 MFP if they need to scan 11x 17.
