    Savin MP C3504 and MP C3504ex print drivers

    Trying to clarify if the Savin model MP C3504 and MP C3504ex can use the same Mac OS drivers or Windows OS drivers as used for the same model Ricoh MP C3504 and MP C3504ex? Is the control panel for these to brands layed out the same or are their any differences?
    Also if there are any differences in any of the software used on the Ricoh model vs. the Savin model of these 2 models?

    As i remember the Mac OS have color printing problems with non PS machines, in the worst case you can't print in color... Only B/W.... The Ricoh "EX" machines have a Post Script emulation, and you can print in color with Mac Os.

    YES. The only difference between a Savin and a Ricoh is the labels applied to it when unboxed.

    So the Savin models are compatible with the Ricoh drivers for Dme with PostScript 3 installed or was it an option?
    Also did the Savin models come with the PostScript3 installed for Macs or did it have to be purchased separately as an option?

    Savin is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ricoh. All machines come out of the factory exactly the same to include the Ricoh branding kit packaged with the manuals and driver disks. If you are a Ricoh branch or dealer, the warehouse ships you a box. If you are a Savin, Lanier, Gestetner or other dealer, the warehouse ships you a box and a branding kit for the brand(s) you sell.

    So if you no longer have the disks with drivers can you use the Ricoh Mac drivers on the Savin models without issues? And do the Savins come from the factory with Postscript3 already installed?

    Ricoh might contain a PostScript emulator. It supports most but not all PostScript features and functionalities. Not supported are anything requiring a PostScript license. The PostScript SD card provides that license.

    so then what type is the sd card used for the Savin MP C3504 and Savin MP C3504ex in order to use Postscript3 with Mac drivers?

    if you have a Savin you will want to download the ppd for MAC from" support.ricoh.com/bb/html/dr_ut_e/sav/" When you the add the ppd on a MAC and you use the wrong brand the MAC won't see it correctly. If its a Ricoh you can download the ppd from "support.ricoh.com/bb/html/dr_ut_e/rc3/
