    'Yield Question ...


    I\\\'m confused over different yield quotes for what I thought would
    be the same toners.

    Our Ricoh 3006 our Savin SDC 306E both have identical internals.
    However, when I look for black toner carts for them, the Ricoh type K1\'s
    (#887914) are shown with yields of 9600 per cart. The Savin type K1\'s
    (#5418) are shown as yielding a little more than half that number per cart.
    The Ricohs are supposed to have 220gm/ct, but I can\'t find a weight for
    the Savins online.

    Does Savin give you less toner per cart than Ricoh, or is there something
    else going on that I\'m not seeing.

    Toner yield is based on a Black-to-white ratio. Minolta, for instance, used to quote a 6% B/W ratio which is about equal to one short paragraph per page. Not very realistic but it looks good on paper.
    Don\'t know for sure, but I suspect this is why the yield is different in the case you mention. One mfg. has a higher B/W ratio they use for toner yield.

    Re:'Yield Question ...

    I have been in the biz for a while and I still cant figure out why copiers (6%), fax (3.5%), and printer (5%) yields are measured differenty. There was an interesting article posted here befor the crash about Kyocera supporting a new international standard for B&W yields measurement.

    I did some digging around the Mita website and forund the link. Maybe the board guys could post it again for us.

    Any way, here it is:
