Great to hear good things happening with Ricoh Production equipment. It's interesting to hear 13 x 25" paper?? Magnetics? No doubt the image quality is very good. We have several C651/C751's out and this year could include several more!

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.

I'll kick it off: Best quality print will be on IJ (inkjet) paper, thus there will be a substantial increase in paper cost. Almost ten dollars per 500 sheets = 2 cents per sheet of paper!

The emitted light is in compliance with the...

I agree: Print quality will be poor compared to laser on normal paper CPP will higher, maintenance is expensive on PW devices And also the ink is not good for you (the enviroment) This is true for many other HP ink jet printers I am convinced that we will see similar devices from other manufactures, I know Ricoh has done a lot of research in ink technology lately

I wanted to respond to the "Best Software & Services Providers" Award. It's my understanding and I could be wrong, is that a dealer survey is sent to "x" dealers with the above questions. There were four nominees that I heard of and they were: ACDI FM Audit Paper Cut Square 9 Where is DocuWare, Nuance, Print Audit, PSIGEN, MWAI and the others? Which got me to thinking. Is Cannata using the same pool of dealers every year for the voting? I'm thinking maybe yes, because these players in...

I agree Rick Taylor has done a superb job at KM but I think he does win it every year. Rightfully so in my opinion, but I also believe Cannata uses the same dealers every year. Since I met them a couple years ago and we use 4 or 5 partners on the lists now we have been included in the voting for the last 2 years.

Ty for the comment, I think the same about Taylor. So, unless those dealers change who they use as third party supplies, none of the other will ever get on the list.

I spoke to Epson while at the BTA show on Orlando about this system. The System ships will all of that ink!! I did not even ask what the cost of the replacement cartridges were, I should have. Interesting to see if this system will pan out. Note the "buns" that are on each side of the system. On each side there are two huge bags of ink. Kinda reminds me of Princess Leia hair style!

Re: Epson launches $8000 colour printer

ty for this. Doing the math, black is .00865 and color is .005493 correct. Or are we adding 649 + 1,236 for a total of 1,885 and the dividing by 75,000 to get the cost per page. In that case the cpc would be .0251. tkern, have you sold any of these yet? Thoughts on the product?

Re: Epson launches $8000 colour printer

We are not a reseller for Epson at this time. We are merely testing the equipment and have been for some time. All they gave me is the "list price" for each bag of toner which is what I posted. I would assume CPC would be calculated the same way as a toner based machine. Based on my evaluation we would not be a reseller of the current machine and would wait until a page-wide array machine would come out to consider. The 24ppm is not accurate when printing high quality documents.

Let's talk more about the paper. The HP will take a 650 foot roll. What that means is the roll of paper will be 50lbs or more. * Risk of someone hurting their back when loaded the paper. This is introduces additional risk to the business owner if someone hurts their back when changing rolls of paper. The last thing a business owner needs is a workman's comp claim. * Are the prints going to be used on a job site? If so, rain and or moisture can make the ink smear and bleed. What good are the...

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...

Re: How HP Views the A3 Copier Market

I find most SMB A3 copier decision makers assume that all copier vendors in 2018 offer high levels of product security. They weight this function lightly in the decision making process and rarely consider this a knock out feature. I have watched all of the HP "Wolf" security videos. They are well produced but portray very unlikely chain of circumstances that are only likely to happen in a James Bond movie.

Just want to throw this out there...I have done very well selling A4 devices due to the fact that the majority of businesses, schools, and other users of devices never run A3 size paper. Would it not make more sense to develop these type of devices that by the manufacturers than continue fighting for what is left of the A3 market Thoughts?

Jeff Excellent point! Seems the manufacturers still need to keep pushing A3 because they can't or don't want to being full functionality to A4 devices (stapling, hole punch, speed, folding, high capacity document feeders, fast scanning).

It should be obvious to all that the toner based print industry is very mature. Another A3 "whiz-bang feature rich" toner based copier is not going to set the world on fire. LED printers with page wide print heads using toner have some good talking points but to me did not set the print world on fire. Some manufacturers even stepped back from LED to laser. I predict in the next 24 months, inkjet based "Page-Wide" A3 MFP printers will start to disrupt the industry based upon the big industry...
