    Toner for these "Lexarps" are expensive. The MX-C607P for example, all inclusive comes out to .02 for mono and .10 color. And this is at the standard yield of 6% black, 20% for the colors - 5% for each color. If they use more than yield, which they will, these contracts could go upside down quickly. I'm not sure how we are going to price these. Anyone had any good ideas?

    We are both a Sharp and Lexmark BSD dealer. Our cost on supplies for the "Sharpmarks" are actually cheaper than the same version from Lexmark for the models I have researched. There are a few model with crazy supply prices which we never sold as a Lexmark and will not sell as a Sharp.

    Years ago Sharp sold an AR-651 that was a Toshiba and at the time it was our only choice for schools. Not dealing directly with the manufactuer was a pain. Firmware lagged, parts manuals where not down to the nuts and bolts and service documentation took forever to trickle down to Sharp if ever. Support was a joke. I have the same fear with the Sharpmarks.

    MX-C507F & MX-C407F we have sold tons of as these as the XC4150, XC4140
    MX-C607P sold 1 C6160
    MX-C507P sold tons as the C4150
    MX-C407P none sold, high cpp

    MX-B707F none sold
    MX-B557 sold 6 as the XM7355

    I think you are using MSRP to calculate and getting those high rates. Do you know how much mark up there is from Delaer Cost to MSRP? Something like $300 mark up for a color toner, $823 mark up on the PM kit. We never calculate or sell anything at MSRP.
