    Is Muratec a good product

    We are contacting a copier rental in Largo and they recommended as the Muratec to be used in our business. Was going to ask for an advice if its a good catch? I've heard of it before but not really familiar.

    I'm not a big fan of Muratec but if you get assistance from certified, reliable and fast technology it's not bad. You will pay for the service and not the brand.

    ... I think Muratec was purchased by Konica Minolta in North America around five years ago. The last time Muratec offered a new product was in 2015.

    KM discontinued Muratec's print business to focus on Muratec's label printing equipment.

    I would stay away from this opportunity and stick with a brand name that you feel more comfortable with.

    Almost 100% you are being offered used, discontinued equipment.

    I am in Tampa and I didn't even know you could even buy Muratec machines anymore. I would only go with a name brand such as Kyocera, Minolta, or Ricoh.

    They were mainly a fax machine company. But like Toshiba they stopped innovating a long time ago. Too many better choices. If you are in Tampa Florida there is no reason to run a Xerox Toshiba or Muratec for print.
    I have used Canon Imagerunner parts for sale. Most are floor model Color and / Advances Imagerunner with some 3025 3235 parts. Several intact machines being parted.

    ... to suggest that Toshiba copiers are not amongst the most innovative in the industry implies you have not researched what you said.

    I noticed when I was doing Samsung warranty service that the Muratecs were mechanically indistinguishable. I have assumed that Muratecs were simply re-badged Samsung (or vice versa). =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    The Muratec 3535's were Muratec made. KMBS sold a rebadged machine that was 28 ppm. We were a dealer and I have one MFX-3535 with 650,000 copies that we change the toners and drums when required. I've worked on copiers since the late 70's (Sharps, Canons) and we were a Minolta (Konica Minolta) since 2000. The Desktop Muratecs last forever and are extremely easy to network. The A3 copiers were KMBS machines.
