    Obviously the outlay is more expensive, but are they really any cheaper?

    Any recommendations on makes/models? Are they easy to setup?
    Did you look at this post? I'm after a print manager program...

    Setup limits in the print managment software and when users logon to the copier they will only have "x amount" of money to waste from either personal account or department account.

    as for the copiers

    cannon imo offer great quality but at a price and the machines are restrictive.

    ricoh and sharp are very good machines and i would probably look at these 2.

    We have networked nashuatec copiers leased from M2 Digital. I dont know about other copier makes but these seem pretty good, fully functional, easy to use, rarely have problems. Toner and staples included in the contracts. We've also bought some HP 4700 colour laser off them. I think we have the option of converting them to leased.

    Just to point out, ricoh = nashuatec = gestetner = NRG = rex rotary = IKON = Savier = Lanier = Monroe. They also operate Danka in Europe, and own 51% of InfoPrint.

    They are like a hydra, with a thousand brands

    We have 4 networked photocopiers, 2 are colour. The colour printing costs have gone right down because the photocopiers are a fair distance from the ICT suites, so it is no longer a simple process to print in colour. Fore some reason mono has become acceptable.

    Lord knows what the costs are for photocoping? The things seem to be running day and night!

    Ours are Canon and once I'd ploughed through the settings, dead easy to install. They also scan but very slowly.

    I was just about to point that out you will find some differences but a lot of the time its just a different badge on the front.

    I'm a huge fan of Toshiba copiers, best ones Ive ever used and I've now used an awful lot of them (had 12 on one site and they were mixed Tosh / Ricoh (and its other names) / Kyocera) and the best by far was the Toshibas.
