Re: Ink Based MFP's In The Market Place

Product acceptance may be the key. Have you ever seen a business class ink product that can match the image quality of a toner machine? I know they can in the production space. If they can go head to head with toner in the business class, then you have a possible game changer. My 2 cents...

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: HP Launches Instant Ink Subscription Program

dimaxusa ·
Some time ago I read that HP loses around 40% on every inkjet device they sell. Razor and blades I guess. How much can it cost to make a low end printer that works for a couple years or whatever? Lets hope that HP doesn't figure out how to totally destory the supplies and service business for the rest of us. If it wasn't for super high OEM supply costs would the MPS biz be worth it? I hope they don't figure out a good way to lock out vendors with supply discounts and easy blended device costs.

I'm thinking it was 2006 when I first met Dave. Dave had this really cool setup for printing color envelopes on one of the first Oki color A3 laser print engines.

[cid:image001.png@01D08E1B.C92C01B0] To me .04 is 4 cents which would equal to .24 cost per D size drawing or if you meant .004 which would then validate the statement “a little more than one tenth of a penny” but would actually be four tenths of a penny...

@printguy @Art Post We have not sold a single one yet. Most people seem to have no interest in ink. I like the product. It is a Kyocera finisher. The problem with the finisher is that it slows the machine down to half speed. So ultimately someone is getting a 50ppm system, not a 100ppm if you have the finisher. Space is an issue if you have the finisher. I talk about the product to everyone but most people revert back to a toner system. I don't think this is going to be a game changer as...

Thanks for the info @Jason H . That's unfortunate, however I get the aversion to ink. Looking at this product it appeared Epson had perfected it. However I don't think I could sell a copier that has a huge paper curl. I never thought it would have a page curl as there is no fuser.
Comment

Re: Who's Afraid of the Epson WorkForce C20590 100ppm MFP?

I think the part of the problem is even though the ink is dry, it has a moist feeling to it. When it drops off into the trays there is a hump (see pic) that the paper drops out on. I think that is part of the problem with the curl. The prints look good and once I lay the paper out on a desk it flattens out but in my opinion it just does not demo well with regular paper.
