    I sell both models in Australia and I believe that Kyocera is a better machine. The drum life is better and the operating costs are lower

    In the end, Ricoh is the winner.

    well... in my opinion, the RICOH is the one to go with cause the customer rarely has to see a service tech other than when a PM is necc... i'm a technician that works on both machine brands and i have always reverted back to the ricoh's. you constantly have to see the kyocera's for lightness issues and jamming, leaking toner, etc... but with the ricoh's you can almost go by a schedule for service, i love them. just take it from a guy who works on both, you'll be much happier with a ricoh, kyocera parts break easily, especially if you have employee's that are kinda hard on the equipment when it jams. they'll break off the TC unit by closing the conveying door too hard, happens all the time...
    hope this helps and get back to me if you have anymore questions

    Ricoh.

    I love these kinds of threads..."Pepsi vs Coke" (No disrespect intended)
    I'll have a Coke, please.

    OK...I'll lay off the Happy Pills for the rest of the day.


    Relax! This firmware injection won't hurt...but it will take 45 minutes.

    I would go with Kyocera. If you want more evidence that Kyocera makes the better product, do a search in the Copier Technical Discussion forum for "Ricoh 2550" and then do one for "Kyocera 3060" and see which machine has more threads. Or just click here:
    Copier Technical Discussion - Copytechnet.com
    Compare the amount of threads in the Ricoh section to the Kyocera section.
    I suppose you could argue that people are posting in the Ricoh section to say what great machines they are, but that is highly doubtful.

    The number of threads only means that more Ricoh Technicians know how to use a computer and the internet. (gottcha!!)

    Knowing how to use the internet is by no means a measure of intelligence. You've seen some of the posts here...

    I have worked on both lines and any of the mid volume Ricoh boxes are the biggest bunch of toner dusting pigs I have ever seen.

    When I went to Kyocera I started working on the Falcon I-II seiries. I vacuumed out at least ten machines before the toner filter changes from white and that was only because I had to vac up a toner spill from a customer. Mostly paper dust in these.

    Plus they don't have the idiotic toner recycling insanity that Ricoh uses which cause at least 20 percent of the service calls I responded to. Leading of course to reschedules for some arcane part.
