    IS the mp305+ any good?

    hi
    i saw some odd units yesterday when picking up from my lease return warehouse.

    I've had about ten units out for about a year now, running good so far. From what I read on the forums, a lot of guys don't like them. For me, so far so good.

    Re: IS the mp305+ any good?

    I have a few of these and have worked on them some.

    Very compact machine that looks like it would be difficult to dig into. Most of the issues I have run into involve curling paper and/or jamming. Doing the standard Ricoh black and white maneuver of turning the fuser temp down by 5 helps a lot. (IMO, I feel Ricoh black and whites over history run a little hot, so turning them down some doesn't hurt and they still fuse well, etc. It certainly helps with paper curl).

    The feeder is very light weight and should likely be avoided by customers that want to do a lot of scanning.

    It's more a machine that a customer wants, if they want to print/copy onto A3 but want a smaller desktop size machine. Welcome 305 +
    I only have 2 out and haven't had any problems I don't think but that could be luck or because they are in low volume offices. I honestly couldn't say if they are good or bad yet.

    In the training, it shows published life expectancy under 200K. They get put in places where people run much more than that on them.

    That is a sales problem, The Product Support Guide says 2000 copies a month, at that rate the machine should last 8 years. Any machine place outside the Ricoh volume guidelines is going to have a shorter lifespan time wise.
