Back in 08 I posted a blog titled To Ricoh "What I Want for Christmas", some of those Christmas wishes came or are coming true almost two years later. I had asked for Color Scanning on high volume units (got it and Santa made me happy), print files from USB or SD cards (got it, about two years late), a Gelsprinter Plotter (I got an Epson instead), a real A4 device (not some printer with scanner attached, don't have this yet, however Santa's suppose to bring me one after Christmas), a Digital Duplicator that duplex's 11x17 (nope, didn't get one of these either), Biometric Authentication (did not get and I'm really pissed), a wide format system that will scan in color (dagnabit, I was suppose to get this a few months ago, all I hear is that it's coming, thanx Santa another gift that everyone else got but me).
So, this year I put together another wish list from Ricoh:
- Duplexing A3 Digital Duplicator that prints in two colors!
- 50, 60, 70 ppm A4 MFP that has the cost per page of the A3 MFP
- Low Volume wide format system with color scanning (4 pages per minute or less)
- A "Green" MFP that will let me use the same paper over and over (erase image)
- A Digital Color Envelope Press (really, really want this)
- A Booklet Finisher that will fold and staple thick stock for Segment 3 & 4 systems
- A folding unit that will create a "z" or "gate" fold on letter size prints or copies
- Embedded Print Cost Calculation Software that will allow us to charge by coverage used
- Embedded Print Software that will report what documents were printed and by whom
- A 20ppm A4 MFP that has a retail cost per page of .10 cents
Do you have a wish list from another manufacturer or even Ricoh, if so post in the comments section!
