Not just color. We could see a big consolidation of speed bands too. If certain manufacturers can make low cost 40 and 50ppm engines that retail for under $4,000 do we really need to have 25ppm engines that retail for over $5,000?
If they offer them for the price of black & white units, yes. If they try to have the same price point as current color systems, they would lose out on price to any manufacturers that continue to make b/w only systems. Additionally, they would have to have a multi-tier billing system for color so as to not scare off people that have intentionally stayed away from color. The industry billing systems (e-Automate, OMD) would need to make that easy to manage & bill as well.
Agreed that the cost of color would have to be the same as the current black systems. I for one would like to only offer color, I think it would be better for the industry. I also believe that the color machines don't cost that much more to make the black systems. I'd bet that the margins are the 20-25-30 ppm nlack systems are huge from the manufacturing side.
The best thing Ricoh could give us is advanced scanning functionality as a standard feature. To be able to navigate to whatever network folder a user wants would be huge, as would the ability to scan to Word or Excel. Canon already has these features, so we are at a huge price disadvantage if it is functionality a customer needs since we have to add ICE (which has a less-than-desirable UI) or NSI AutoStore.
Art: Check out the specs on this series. Optional saddle-stitch & hole punch, maximum scan size of 25 inches, 4,500 sheet paper capacity, top model speed of 60ppm color, 55k toner yield (might get you at or below A3 CPP), OCR scanning standard, supports 300 gsm. Awesome for an A4 product. Game changer if they price it right.
Did you figure out if these are replacements to the SP 5200 series and.or get any info on when they are launching? Looks like they are already in the Nevada/WSCA contract - http://purchasing.nv.gov/uploa...Ricoh-D-04-29-16.xls
yeah, 501 replaces the 45ppm & the 601 replaces the 52ppm A4, can't remember those models numbers right now. From prelim pics, seems the book is out if the 60ppm A4 device is actually a Ricoh OEM. Not sure, but the DF looks completely different from any other Ricoh DF
The problem with the 5200 series was always the cost per page for the cartridges. We sold very few of them for that reason alone. That machine would have been a real winner if the consumables had let the dealer put it under a service plan at a reasonable CPP. Perfect machine for medical but just too expensive for the cartridge.
Kyocera machine with Ricoh smart ops panel on it. A little disappointed to figure that out as soon as we unboxed the first unit. Happened to have the Kyocera printer version nearby and sure enough. I thought it was strange when I went through the product information guide last week and saw the toner waste bottle system. https://www.kyoceradocumentsol.../ecosysm3560idn.html
I've sold 5, and all 5 were delivered to two accounts in the last two weeks. Thus, I have no bad news to report. I find that this system can be excellent for auto dealerships and also a good box to steal accounts from others. I guess no news is good news.
Stapling isn't an issue for me but I've had two of my medical clients turn their nose up at the new model because of the lack of a 1-bin when their 5210sf machines in their fleet have it. For now I can still get the old model but not likely much longer.
Old Glory, yup you are correct, was not asking about Ricoh. Was curious if there was any printer based products that staple. I sure there might be a couple. I'm not finding any either. Quoting 8400N. Thank you for the reply, it's appreciated

Not liking the Kyocera part of #4 at all. On the other hand really liking # 10 Add: Color equipment will become more prevalent with costs of color equipment continuing to drop and coming more in line with monochrome.
