    Re: Do you have a copier at home?

    I have a SP3410SF which I fished out of the skip and brought back to life.

    But I would like a small A4 colour laser MFD for home.
    Problem is I personally don't like Ricoh's lower end offerings.

    So I have a eye on a Canon i-SENSYS MF633Cdw which is a charming little MFD.



    - I know what I need to know as I need to know it, but knowing is not enough I must understand what I know.

    Cool Re: Do you have a copier at home?

    Konica Bizhub C200. Work was going to junk it so i rescued it. Has come in handy for friends and family. Got a set of toners and image units for free so it'll never cost me anything.

    My wife puts up with a lot. I have printers and copiers all over the place. Also a few plotters. But then, I'm an indie, so I end up selling some of them.

    Kind of depends on how many copies/prints you will be making. I have a small canon inkjet machine. Cost all of 21 dollars with tax. The ink actually costs twice as much. But I haven't used either color or black cartridge fully yet. If I need to fax anything I scan and then use a fax website. Just can not justify the added expense of a color laser machine with very low volume of printing. Heck even just one of the toner/drum units costs more the two of the machine I bought, a Canon mp2550

    Re: Do you have a copier at home?

    So you get a really old color laser printer and keep it running... and try to be in the right place at the right time when people throw their old supplies away (like when you sell them a new machine) Right now I have a HP CLJ 4600. I happened to be talking to a customer who mentioned they were throwing out 4 OEM toner ctgs. I'll probably keep the machine only until it runs out of toner. There are so many used units floating around that if I throw it away when I run out of toner, it's not that big a deal.

    Re: Do you have a copier at home?

    Yes. I work from home and so over the years I've had hundred. Mainly for "parts". At one stage I filled my 4 car garage with the shit. These days the car is back in the garage (most of the time), and I throw machines out as they arrive. Our local council takes them for free as eWaste, so that's handy. I'm now also a building designer and drafter about 50% of the time so I keep a Lexmark x945e for printing out drawings, mainly because an associate bought 20 of the things for $30 each and so there is a steady supply of spare parts there (the hard drives keep crashing).

    My first copier for home use was a Xerox 3100 that usually took an hour of servicing before I could make a couple of copies.

    Re: Do you have a copier at home?

    old post... I'll bite...

    Yeah, I have few working non-working copiers and printers at home...
    Most of them are working intermittent, eg. low on toner, need fuser roller etc.
    I find myself getting annoyed every time someone want a quick print out or copy.
    They come around to my place an I have to do IT or Tech work to get one going.
    Which is a bit of a bummer, it reminds me of something called work.....

    What if we could count the stars... , what number would you stop at...?"

    Well at least they don't ask you to go to their house and take a quick look at their machines there. The neighborhood a while back found out I worked on office equipment courtesy of the signs I had to put on my car. They finally quit when i started charging handing a bill from where I worked. Told my boss I was doing that to get them to stop bugging me and he said okay.
