Hi guys, just hoping you could help me out with your wealth and knowledge when it comes to MFP devices. If you were ranking manufactures on reliability and cost effectiveness on the running and maintaining of machines, which order would you put these 5 manufactures (and any others you would like to add?)


Sharp
Kyocera
Toshiba
Konica Minolta
Ricoh

Thanks Guys

I find Ricoh the best as far as reliability, but running costs can be high if using genuine toners, carefully selected compatibles are ok but can reduce reliability long term.

New management structures over last two years at Ricoh Uk however not helpfull for small to medium sized dealers.

Sharp is pretty straight forward, I'd probably rank them up near the top.

I like Rocoh brands they seem pretty reliable, I believe price wise to purchase they are cheaper, they also have a large market share in north america so they aren't going anywhere soon.

We are dealer and service provider of Develop MFPs (mono & color) in our country. I find these machines effective, durable, reliable & low cost on maintenance (toners & parts) compared to other leading brands. I admit that Fuji Xerox has the best image quality but at a cost: high toner price. Ricoh/Gestetner copiers are also good machines, durable & have good image quality but have higher maintenance & cost per print compared to Develop. As far I'm concerned, Kyocera copiers are also good machines & good image quality but it has the highest maintenance & cost per print due to high toner price. Most printshops & copy centers in our area use Develop copiers using genuine toners. Others use Kyocera, Sharp or Gestetner copiers but use generic toners.;)
