The key for Minolta Dealers, is that the CF2001, CF 1501 are designed for end user involement.
All consumables can be replaced by the end user with not tech involvement. Or they dealer could choose limited end user replacement or replacement only by a technican.
The key is end user replacement, just like HP!
From the Mind of Minolta:
The labor cost based on End User capability to replace the TFU's.
Dealers need to be encouraged to allow more customer involvment.
Service advantage over our competitors.
User does it all!!!!!!!!!!!!

Total CPP I/U .0253
These are all user interchangeable, no technician needed to change developer. I believe that Minolta has married a color scanner with a color printer. Hence the two seperate units mentioned on the brochure. In essence this could be an extremley reliable unit.
Toner consumption is based on 20% coverage of 8 x 11.
10 k PER Color CARTRIDGE (dealer cost) $30. CPP .0030 10 k per Black CARTRIDGE (dealer cost) $24.
Total Toner CPP .0114
Total CPP with Parts & Toner & I/U's .047
These systems are a joke! They have taken three different pieces of existing systems and pieced then together for a corpoate color copier.
Faults: By-pass One sheet only! (upto 90lb) Bottle Fed Toner Supply No Offset stack on 1501 Flimsy paper trays. OK Copy Quality This system should not be a threat to our 6000 series as long as price is not a factor. If price is the factor, sell quality and reliablity against the Minolta CF1501/2002.
some more items:
No thick stock, no duplex thick stock. The Minolta is a LED Color Printer, NOT LASER! 2 Bit color versus 8 bit color. No 13 x 18.
Topic: 6513 vs. Minolta 2003 (2 of 2), Read 7 times Conf: COLOR: Competitive Discussion From: Gordon Evans (email@example.com) Date: Sunday, March 16, 2003 08:45 AM
I'm betting this is the Minolta 2002. It's 20ppm vs. your 13, has an available bookletmaker finisher which works from both the copy and print modes, is capable of running 140# index thru the 250 sheet universal tray, comes std. with command workstation software on the 700mhz fiery vs. your optional command workstation on the 366mhz E710, has some very nice scanning features vs. your single sheet fiery scan and costs less than the 6513. Image quality will be slightly less than the 6513, but it's a lot of bang for the buck. Good Luck!
