Basically as the post title says I just want to get some opinions of this box.
We have sold a few of them but I have not done any PM work on them as of yet.
But from what I've seen they appear to be reliable and the customers seem to be happy with the copy quality they produce.

Not bad seen a few at our office and when set up and decent paper used the image produced is very very good.

Seen one or two in the field they look fragile and i can see the slowness of the unit could cause problems with impatient customers.

But if i read it write they only have a life of 300 k so i could see a few being hammered and be intresting to see how many copies they will actually last in the field.

OK, Im new to this forum, but what ive seen is good enough to continue on with some regularaty.
MPC 1500 to my point of view has one very bad problem and it has to do with the drying up of gel, white strips on print are almost constant in the field

I've done a couple of calls on our MP C1500sp's in the field since I created this post.
One to fix garbled PCL output which was fixed with a firmware update and the other to fit the feature enhancement option.

But a year on and still no actual PM work has been done and no calls for copy quality problems.

I've seen this happen on the smaller gelsprinters but not so far on the larger gel MFDs.
I think it may have some thing to do with the environmental conditions.

I am not very happy with thist whole gel-copyers/printers (espacially the printers).

The Quality isnt good.
The good thing is, that you havent any dust from the toner in other components.

but the mpc 1500sp is like the mp2000.. i think that it will have the same problems. well see ;)

But its kind of funny that the paper-exitor is on the left side...and not on the right as always.

ok, your right ;)

but 90% of all ricoh maschines have the paper exit in the right side.

But the dsc332 is (for me personally, becaus i only work since 2003 for ricoh) a very old maschine... i never see them at a costumer ;)

It was by no means a ofence, only a statement, on my point of view we the Ricoh group are one of the best in the market.......

ok..sorry was my fault. At the time i wrote the text i was a litte bit vacantly ;)

But your right..i also think that ricoh is the best brand on the market. esecally in germany "we" have about 30% of the market share.
More like no other ;)

Hello,

Not really the best machine in the field. a lot of problems with the engines, colorproduction, etc.
It's a very quiet and proper machine, but there's something wrong with the nozzles witch is making the quality very unstable.
Color adjustement not realy the best solution, and replacement of the engine very expensive. So better look in the Mpc2000/2500 cat.

greets,
froota
