    Since I only work on Ricoh I don't feel qualified to pass an opinion.
    However I feel that when the digital revolution came Ricoh did a lot better job turning their photocopiers into printers then the printer manufacturers did trying to get their printers to pretend they were photocopiers.

    At least 50% of IT is a solution looking for a problem.

    Hard to say. I'm doing 95% KonicaMinolta and they have lots of very good boxes but there are also some - mostly in the lower range - that are a shame for such a renowned brand with such a proud history.

    Jip the high volume and production machine from the blue burger is quite alright.
    Real shame about the A4 platform.

    Agree.. The e series is really good despite the early electronic problems and clunky UI software. Any of the older stuff was pretty bad, but the Pro line stuff still has the older Konica built in. Take in case, The 951 is a decent machine despite being built on(but upgraded) a 15 year old platform(7085). The A4 stuff "might" get better now that they have bought into Lexmark.

    Will add Kyocera is a decent alternative. I really like the older Falcon engines like 420i/520i. Super easy to work on with the newer TA interface.

    Problem with the Lexmark product is the running cost. Kyocera covers the market really well with the A4 range they have. There is no competing against that.
    Were the customer expects one brand to cover there needs Konica Minolta is falling short.

    Whatever

    I'm not surprised Konica Minolta came out top, as an engineer they are the easiest to work on, all parts are complete units, no rebuilds, unlike Ricoh & Canon for example.

    Let us eat, drink, and be merry, because tomorrow we may die!
