Hi,

Our school's existing lease about to end and we need 3 new machines for photocopiying, printing, scanning and student printing system. (Active Directory environment) Our main concerns are common, reliability, functionality etc. Different companies coming and advertising their system is the best ofcourse :) I was wondering what would you say about the brands below? 4 companies have approached us. Would you share your experinces?

1- Canon
2- Xerox
3- Toshiba
4- Ricoh

Note: Our daily BW copying and printing on 3 machines 10.000 Mono/per day, 500 Colour/per day

I've worked with Canon, Xerox and Ricoh, and Canon was my favourite. However it's always a matter of money. If you buy 3 machines, negotiate, negotiate, negotiate. Check which one give you the most for your bucks, because all four very good compagnies and they all have very good products.
Check for this one: imageRUNNER ADVANCE C7065

I have three excellent resources for you.
Two are podcasts of a radio show on the topic.
The last one is a list of things to look for when evaluating copiers.

My personal preference is Sharp, however, I have not worked with Canon. I do not like Ricoh or Toshiba. I used to work with Xerox all the time and they were good. I haven't experienced any of their new models lately to evaluate them for feature set.
