In this article we will talk about the difference between the popular models of laser printers from manufacturers of printing equipment: Xerox, Epson, Minolta. More specifically, in this material, we decided to track the trend of new models of devices from the company Epson. First, note that Epson has many years experience in inkjet printers and MFPs. That Epson has developed a special pigment, through which the ink is very tightly secured on the media and the prints made with pigment inks do not smudge and are eventually not fade. This revolutionary design to fasten items Epson inkjet products in the market. Embedded way to fix the pigment used by large companies such as HP and Canon. But the technology is known to not stand still, together with the widespread inkjet technology for many years adjacent to laser printing. The laser method of fixing the image (the text is also a kind of image) was designed primarily to increase the speed and simultaneously reduce the cost for each separately produced prints.
Design your own custom models (assembly) of printers and MFPs process is very costly and time consuming. Now increasingly we can see that companies are simply buying a license to sell those or other existing models and sell them under its own brand. How we can come in handy this information? It is not difficult to assume that the machine is implemented on the license will never be cheaper than the original, or a similar scheme would be unprofitable. The task of any potential buyer to find the same characteristics of the goods at the lowest price. This article will help you orient yourself in the market.
We now turn to specifics. To determine which model is the analogue of a system, first we need to carefully compare the specifications of these devices, these characteristics are directly dependent on the mechanical components of the apparatus (Drive unit, a node capture paper, imaging unit, fuser unit), and secondly to draw attention to the used cartridges, and the resemblance of these devices. Now, to determine the original, we need to only know the date of the entry specific model vehicle. We have compiled for you a list of models, which are analogous to machines Epson: Epson c2800 is an analogue of Xerox 6180n; Epson c3800 analog Xerox 6280n; Epson EPL-6200 – Konica Minolta PagePro 1300W. It is not always necessary to be guided only by the price of the device, pay attention to prices of consumables (ink cartridges). At equal prices of machines, ink cartridges for them can vary greatly in price. It is also important when buying a printer or MFP to take into account the degree of prevalence of the brand across the country. On this depends the number of authorized service centers and dealer outlets in your city. In some cases, a small overpayment will be justified, because you always can quickly repair or buy a new cartridge for your device. In Moscow, there are about 30 authorized service centers Xerox, in St. Petersburg about 10. Every year, they will only increase. For example, service centers Konica Minolta half. If you live in a big city, there is no reason to overpay for the brand.
