Fax photocopiers

Despite explaining my requirements to the sales people from Fuji-Xerox, Canon and Ricoh, they persisted in introducing models that cost between $2600 to $12,000.

Fuji-Xerox introduced two models that were $9,000 and $12,000 exclusive of GST. Canon presented two that were $8,000 and $10,000. And Ricoh, $2,600 and $4,950.

They deliberately did not present their lower product lines despite my constant reminders that my requirements were basic and that I was cost-sensitive. Oh well. They concentrated on their hard-sell, ignoring everything else and had probably their commissions in mind.

Ultimately, I picked up a KX-MB772CX based on B.'s recommendation from Harvey Norman's for $299.00. I set it up this morning and the machine has been satisfactory. $300 versus $12,000.

Good luck with that machine! High cost per page, system won't last 8 months if you put volume on it.

My volume isn't high. I had calculated the toner cost before the purchase and it was low actually.

So does that mean that we won't be hearing your paper jam updates at Facebook anymore? Gasp!

Hehehe ... good to hear that you now have a new printer.
