    I have PCounter embedded running on my Sharp's they are just so simple to setup even as a standalone unit I feel they offer most features from other machines I have used in the past.

    We have had Ricoh for as long as I can remember, just installed a new colour one and a new black and white. Excellent service as always

    we have 26 Konica Minolta photocopiers.

    On some sort of contract where we dont pay for the toner we just pay per page and it works out very cheap.

    Are phasing out colour printers in departments / classrooms and getting everyone to print to the copiers.

    That's who we use - great service (though I used them before they became part of Sharp and hence am using Ricoh kit at the moment

    We use Ricoh with Papercut MF and linked to AD accounts for staff early days but seems ok so far although some departments are going to get big bills.

    Out of interest, have all those who contributed so far not used/looked in to Xerox? If you have, what were the reasons you didn't go with them ultimately?
    We are currently Ricoh but very close to opting for Xerox machines to drive our in-house mono and colour needs when the lease is up.

    I looked at Xerox the last time we went to look at them. The UI was a mess - confusing and odd. They were also significantly more expensive than anyone else.

    while i can not speak for the machines build or print quality its important to know that not all embedded platforms are equal in features / looks / usability. If you are looking to use something like PaperCut MF be sure to check out the videos on youtube or better yet visit a showroom.

    We have three Konica Minolta Bizhub C451 MFDs, leased from Konica. They are not very reliable. In fact they go through phases where we have an engineer out once a week to fix something.
    We too are looking at alternatives and have had a demo of a RISO comcolour 7050 which is impressive in the speed department - even on double-sided printing. The printed output is very good although you can tell its an inkjet, not laser, but for everyay usage it is fine.

    We have Kyocera. Seem to have lots of niggles and it might just be because my senses are attuned, but I think they get more than their fair share of posts on here, judging by the poll results. Only 2 more years to go....
