Which Is Better?

Is there anyone who doesn't have an HP printer story to tell? "I had an HP printer for ten years and it never broke down," is the typical story. And to their credit, these stories are often true. HP's of old typically did seem to last forever.

But that was then ... and this is now. Long gone are the days of quality, well built printers (or copiers) that will last ten years made by anyone. So why does everyone still think "HP" when they want to buy a printer? Because of their past. Memories die hard. But HP's sales are starting to show that customers are waking up.

Some of low-end HP's printers have been so poor that there have been class action lawsuits against them. Our experience with even the "middle class" printers reveals that customers will experience several pickup tire replacements and at least one fuser unit replacement (sometimes requiring associated gears to be replaced, too) during the life of the machine. The total cost to perform these repairs (or, to purchase a Service Agreement over the years that would cover these repairs) will equal or exceed the initial cost of the machine itself.

Are the BROTHER's any better? BROTHER, once considered the "cheap replacement", has made incredible advances in quality and performance over the last ten years. How often do pickup tires and fusers have to be replaced on them?


Our experience has been that these parts have rarely needed to be replaced during the projected lifetime of the machine (around 100,000 prints.) Does this mean that the customer should replace the BROTHER printer rather than repair it, at that 100,000 point?


Because the prices of BROTHER equipment are so inexpensive, it simply makes no sense to perform those repairs. A typical BROTHER printer will cost less than a one year Service Agreement on an HP (and cost considerably less than the equivalent HP, itself.) 

Plus, all BROTHER's come with a one year warranty. By replacing the machines every 100,000 prints, one is always able to take advantage of the latest technology of increased speed and constantly improving quality.

Also, note that the BROTHER network cards never fail, as they frequently do in the HP's. And, they never have serious software glitches like the HP's do.

If you are thinking of buying an HP, check out his Customer Satisfaction Survey first. Then, call us and give us the HP model number. We will be happy to show you the BROTHER difference. 714-532-2679

 craigslist Copiers - The Real Truth!

To the uninitiated, these machines (sold mainly by wholesalers and business furniture outlets, though some are sold by private parties) seem like a good deal. But, as the old saying goes, "If it is too good to be true, it probably is". Here is what most of them have in common:

  1. The people selling them are not local copier dealers with a reputation to uphold. Many don't even employ one full time technician. They have very limited knowledge of the machines and their parts availability is scarce. The copier information they display on their ads is all copied from other sites.

  2. Most are not refurbished at all, or if they claim to be, the level of refurbishing is not what is performed by the reputable dealers. Usually, they are simply cleaned up and tweaked to make an acceptable copy. None of them are checked for firmware updates or service bulletin updates, which are necessary for future trouble-free performance.

  3. Most of the machines are usually outdated (though they may look very current). This means they are over four years old. After four years, these machines basically have no value. Manufacturers also stop providing any meaningful tech support for these highly sophisticated (and complicated) digital copiers. The average person has absolutely no way to verify how old any of this equipment really is.

  4. The meters (copy count) are usually suspect. There are very few machines over four years old that have acceptable "low mileage". Respectable dealers will not refurbish high copy count machines.

  5. Most purchasers of these machines are doing relatively low volume - and really don't need a big piece of equipment. These sellers will never tell you that you can buy brand new BROTHER multifunction equipment for a fraction of what they are selling their used and outdated equipment for - and that the new BROTHERS come with a one year warranty. For those who are skeptical of the BROTHER's performance, COPY TECH COMPANY will even let you use it for a week to make sure you are happy.

COPY TECH COMPANY offers a wide range of recently returned and refurbished lease equipment. They are gone through extensively with all supply and high wear items replaced and all firmware updates performed. And, they are basically priced at half of our discounted new machine prices.
