Review : Ricoh Aficio MPC1500

Review : Printer : Multifunction : Color : Ricoh Aficio MPC1500

As one of printer brand that never heard before (it were known for copying machine brand), Ricoh step to printer world is really amazing.

Coming with this multifunction printer, Ricoh start by offering color printer directly instead of BW printer. We believe this steps were taken to positioned their brand as a manufacturer of the newest product. IMHO, this product actually a color copying machine, with additional feature with print, fax, network capabilities and big harddisk.

We don't know whether their steps to use harddisk is a good decision. In a copying machine, their mechanical parts create vibration, from soft one to a really-really vibration. This might not good for harddisk life. We hope guarantee time also include this harddisk. But we predict that this harddisk will not last more than 3 years. For sure, the steps to use harddisk is a good choice, cause it will help your organization alot better to cope with printing & re print.

Ricoh absolutely giving nice offer about this all in one package. What else do you expect from print/copy/fax/scan machine that support color. IMHO, it will replace minimum 2 BW printer, your fax machine, scanner, and 1 color printer. Plus it will added capability for your organization to print up to A0 poster size.

Imagine, the possibility to reduce your cost and increase productivity....

With dark theme, it is the cheapest website I know. The tricky part, you must transfer the payment first through Mandiri or BCA. Cannot COD. Telephone to their store is makes me sick, soo hard to reach them. Open after 11.00, closed about 17.00. 1 day delivery is supported through third party, sometimes by their deliveryman. The minus one is their delivery charge is changing all the time. For the same address, they could charge 10.000 per 1 kgs, then changed to 15.000, sometimes you will get invoiced 35.000 and even 50.000 !! Really, they should improve customer service and billing detail.

Start just from 2 small room, known as one of the biggest retail store in their respective goods/items/devices. Their price is very attractive supported by on time delivery service. Boast their sites having 10.000 visitor a day, it is surely one of their strength. With
too many items sold on the first page, their item sold must be numerous. Credit card accepted here. In here, you cannot buy computer parts. Only branded PC, monitor, peripheral (especially external one), and telecommunication gadget.
Additional :
Besides computer, they also sell Audio - video equipment, household, and camcorder, camera, toys, house electronic, and many more.

Printer Brand in 2007

As you well know, printer is actively used by anyone everyday.
Here is some printer information used widely in Indonesia. This writing not an indication for Jakarta IT product in 2007 or ahead.

Based on Brand and some review:

Well known brand. actively advertise in media to be able to compete with other printer manufacturer. Product ranged widely from the cheapest up to plotter/design printer. Actively promote original cartridge to be used, caused this is their main revenue stream. IT user in indonesia still perceived that their product is expensive and having good quality.

Widely known as cheap printer but now positioned themselves as quality product. This is marked by their aggresive marketing in photo printer. Gained named through the most easiest to refill printer. Widely used at home due to always budget printer.

Still used mainly as dot matrix printer, unchallenged for years. Compete in cheap product with canon and now HP. Perceived also as easy to refill printer.

Some advertise campaigned but not focus. seldom people choose this product well. Out of topic one.

Samsung, IBM, etc, is used by some people. some have targeted market and some still have unfocus line of product.
