I have done some productivity tests with the Aficio 2232C/2238C versus the Canon C3200 and the Xerox 40C. In printing a PDF file of 27 pages, the Xerox took 3:45, the Canon 5:00 and the Ricoh 3:00. I then ran the job again on the Ricoh, and it took 1:40. Then I realized that in the first try, the 2238C calibrated during the print. After repeating this several times, I was able to duplicate the same results. All the variables were the same; network, PC, drivers, etc.
So what did I find?
1. Calibration is approximately 1:20
2. We are still more productive than the competition if we have to calibrate
